The Graco 4ever Extend2fit is an All-In-One car seat. You can use it for your child until they no longer need a car seat.

The Graco Extend2fit is only a 2-Way seat. After the forward-facing mode, you’ll need to get a new seat which is a booster seat.

There’s an almost 4 inches difference with their lengths - the Extend2fit is longer.

Both seats have additional legroom which adds 5 inches to their total lengths.

In this case, the 4ever Extend2fit can save more space in your vehicle.

Installing the 4ever Extend2fit with LATCH is easy to deal with. The installation problem for 4ever Extend2fit becomes challenging once the seat belt is used.

On the other hand, installing the Extend2fit rear-facing, whether by LATCH or seatbelt can be easily done compared to when installing it forward-facing via LATCH or seatbelt.

Safety

Approved For Airplane Use:
Yes
Easy To Buckle And Unbuckle?
Yes
No

When it comes to safety, it seems that the 4ever Extend2fit is a better choice. That is because of the following issues that the Extend2fit seems to have.

  1. The Extend2fit seat harness cannot be easily tightened. Also, it doesn’t seem to be tight enough to pass a pinch test. A pinch test is usually the gauge to help you decide when the car seat harness is already properly tightened.
  2. The chest clip of the seat harness can be hard to release. In emergency situations when you have to immediately disengage it, it can take some real effort.

Both seats seem to be too upright too, despite having generous recline angles.

The Graco Extend2fit is lighter.

When trying to remove or put back the seat cover, the Graco 4ever Extend2fit is a safer choice.

Conclusion

 

There’s an approximately USD 150 price difference between the 4ever Extend2fit and the Extend2fit. The 4ever Extend2fit is more expensive.

Let’s see what the added USD 150 is for.

  1. It can be used as a booster seat so you don’t have to acquire a new seat ever.
  2. It is more compact even when the /extra legroom/extendable footrest/4-position extension panel is fully utilized.
  3. It is easier to install via LATCH in the forward-facing mode.
  4. It is easier to tighten and buckle up the seat harness.
  5. Except for the Clove color, the seat fabrics are made of breathable and comfortable materials.
  6. When you need to wash the seat cover, it is easier to remove and put it back.

Now let’s see what you get from saving your USD 150 with the Graco Extend2fit.

  1. It is easier to install rear-facing with a seat belt.
  2. It is lighter to lug around when you need to air travel with it.

Given the above-mentioned points, it seems to be more advantageous to go with the Graco 4ever Extend2fit.

However, having reviewed the Graco 4ever Extend2fit against the older model Graco 4ever, going with the latter is a wiser choice. Read my comparison here.
