I think its a novel idea, but I have to agree with some of the others, I wouldn't put my baby in it (if I had one that is). Just the fact that it's not meant to be there and hasn't actually been crash tested would have me worried.

I am more comfortable with her in this than just belted in the back seat of the subi. Just taking corners at a normal pace the seat slides around on the bench seat and I dont even want to think of what would happen if the car went upside down. In the thing I built its bolted to where the jump seats go with grade 8 hardware so that is for sure strong enough, when strapped in the car seat wont come out even if it was upside down and there is absolutely no side to side motion. I feel that is is more secure in this even without being strapped in than it is strapped in to the bench seat in the subi. But I understand where you guys are coming from and it's really hard to tell just how secure this thing is without actually seeing it and putting the seat in and "testing" it.

Yeah but I'm sure there's a reason that seat slides around a little. think about it, when you're in an accident and that motion gets transferred to you that baby seat will be allowed to slide enough but not too far to absorb some of that impact, but in your truck all the motion gets transferred straight to your baby seat holder and straight to your baby. I can tell that what you built is VERY well built but there's a reason our cars aren't all steel like they used to be.

That's just my 2 cents.

yeah this is because auto makers are all trying to get by with cheap fabrication techniques. molded plastic vs. steel. come on. it's not as though shes laying in the frame itself.
