Description


Graco makes a series of SnugRide Click Connect car seats. (They are known for the satisfying audible “click” when you attach it to the car seat base or stroller.) The most popular one is the SnugRide Click Connect 35. They also make the 35 LX and the 40. Why so many numbers? They indicate the weight limit of the car seat. This guy, the 30 LX, is safe for an infant up to 30 lbs while the 35 has a weight limit of 35 lbs.

Does this matter? To most families, probably not. Babies graduate into their rear-facing convertible car seats around a year. How much do babies weight? The 50th percentile for boys weighs 30 lbs by 16 months, so you might not even use the extra time that the five pound weight difference will buy you. If you expect to have a big or tall baby, though, the 35 or 40 is a safer bet.

So what about the car seat itself? At only 7 lbs(!), the Click Connect 30 LX is one of the lightest car seats out there (and half a pound lighter than the 35).

It is not the easiest car seat to install, though. The LATCH connectors are simple hooks, rather than the clip attachments common in higher end car seats, and it has to be tightened by hand in an spot on the side (rather than using force-multiplying mechanisms like the Chicco KeyFit 30 or the Britax B-Safe). It does feature a three-position adjustable base to make it easier to get the right level.

Like all car seats on the market, the SnugRide Click Connect 30 LX meets all of the federal safety requirements, and its sides are lined with energy absorbing foam to manage collision forces.

The seat comes with a removable newborn insert for head support and a retractable canopy to provide shade for the babe. Parents complain that the canopy and the handles collide when you try to put the canopy up, and as your baby grows they can reach up and grab the canopy and pull it towards their feet. This isn’t unsafe, but it’s annoying. When the car seat gets dirty (which will happen), the cover can be thrown in the wash, but you have to unthread the harness to remove it.

To attach the car seat to a stroller, the SnugRide Click Connect 30 LX is compatible with all Graco Click Connect strollers, and other popular strollers from Baby Jogger, Uppababy, and others with an adapter that must be purchased separately.

The older version of this Graco car seat was called the “Classic Connect” and you may still find some stroller frames or adapters out there that are only for the Classic. If buying on Craigslist or getting hand-me-downs, double check to make sure it’s all compatible.

An additional base can also be purchased to install the SnugRide in multiple vehicles.
