The Graco Size4Me 65 and the Graco Extend2Fit are both car seats that are designed for infants and toddlers weighing from 4 lbs up to 65 lbs. They both have similar safety features and are a similar size.
So how do you which one is better? We have picked out the best of the features of the Graco Size4Me 65 and the Graco Extend2Fit to see which one we think is best.
The Size4Me and the Extend2Fit have both been through Graco’s side impact testing and both exceed the Federal Safety Standards. The Size4Me features energy absorbing foam padding and the Extend2Fit has a strong steel reinforced frame.
Both models can be placed either rear or forward facing but the Extend2Fit has the added benefit of being able to be placed rear facing for children up to 50 lbs, instead of the 40 lbs limit on the rear facing position on the Size4Me. Both models are safe for children between 22 lbs and 65lbs in a forward facing position.
The Size4Me and the Extend2Fit are almost identical in size. The Size4Me measures 26 by 22.3 by 19.3 inches and the Extend2Fit measures 26 by 19.28 by 22.29 inches, so the Extend2Fit is slightly narrower in the width.
The car seats are not compact so will require a little extra space in the front if they are placed in a rear facing position. The Extend2Fit may not be suitable for small cars if used in the rear facing position in its extended state, unless it’s in the middle seat.
The Size4Me and the Extend2Fit both come with super comfortable cushions that keep your baby snug and can be removed as your child grows. The Size4Me has strap covers that keep your baby free from the harness rubbing on them.
The Extend2Fit has two cup holders built in with the plastic cups being removable, compared to the Size4Me which has one cup holder. The Extend2Fit has a 6 position recline and a 10 position headrest so your child will be supported as they grow.
Ease of Use
The Size4Me and the Extend2Fit are easy to install with Graco’s superior LATCH system, which takes just one second to click it into place in your car or remove it. Each model has a machine washable seat cushion, for hassle free cleaning.
The Extend2Fit benefits from having a harness storage, making it easier to get your child in and out of the seat without the harness getting in the way. The Extend2Fit also has an easily adjusted headrest and harness that can be altered together in one go.
Both the Graco Size4Me and the Graco Extend2Fit are strong, reliable car seats that will safely protect your child in the event of a collision. With the two models being similar prices, the Extend2Fit is a better option for your small child.
Because the Extend2Fit can be used in a rear facing position till your child is older it provides extra security for your child during travel. However, for smaller vehicles, the Size4Me is still a good choice as it takes up slightly less room when rear facing.
