What weabout it
The 35 LX offers nice extras, like a no rethread harness, that take it up a notch from the standard version.

Description


Graco makes a series of SnugRide Click Connect car seats that 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 30 LX, the 40 and this guy, the 35 LX.

So why so many numbers? They indicate the weight limit of the car seat. The 35 LX is safe for an infant up to 35 lbs while the 30 has a weight limit of 30 lbs. Does the weight limit 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 the 35 LX will get you through the first year.

What about the letters? LX stands for luxury, and the 35 LX has two nice additional features that make it easier to use: a two-position crotch strap and a no-rethread harness to adjust as your baby grows up. It also has a snap-off head support to keep baby comfortable. One drawback to the 35 LX is that the carrier is heavier: 9.6 lbs. The 35 comes in at 7.5 lbs, and the 30 is only 7 lbs.

When it comes to installation, 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). The base does have a six-position adjustment knob and level indicators to help you know it’s installed correctly.

Like all car seats on the market, the SnugRide Click Connect 35 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. However parents complain that the canopy and the handles collide when you try to put the canopy up. When the car seat gets dirty (which will happen), the cover can simply be removed and thrown in the wash.

To attach the car seat to a stroller, the SnugRide Click Connect 35 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.
