Ease of Use

Among its many features, there are plenty which prioritize convenience in the Graco My Ride 65 LX Convertible Car Seat. The chest clip, for instance, shows a useful graphic on the front of the clip to ensure parents are strapping their child in correctly. There are drink holders placed on each side of the car seat, the perfect size for juice boxes or children’s cups, so kids can have their refreshments to hand. The car seat cushions can also be removed and washed easily using a washing machine on a gentle cycle, so this inevitable spills or accidents are never a catastrophe.

Additional Features

Well-padded infant body support cushions are included with the Graco My Ride 65 LX and these keep infants weighing 5lbs or more safe in the event of a crash. The generous buckle tongues on the harness were also made to be a perfect width to fit with the harness itself, and this prevents the straps from twisting as the harness is able to move freely while clipping or adjusting. The harness straps have 3 length settings which can be quickly and easily adjusted as your child grows.

Review Summary

The Graco My Ride 65 LX Convertible Car Seat is clearly of a high build quality, constructed in the United States, and doesn’t cut corners in terms of safety. Additional infant padding makes the seat just as comfortable and secure on the way home from the hospital, as it is on the way to pre-school.

Side impact protection keeps the child safe from lateral collision forces, and airplane safety certification gives children a comfortable and safe seat to use during air travel. For the price, the Graco My Ride 65 LX convertible car seat has to be one of our best buy recommendations.
