Graco SmartSeat All-in-One Car Seat

Graco SmartSeat All-in-One Car Seat

The Graco Metal Products company started out fabricating machine and car parts for local manufacturers in 1942.  Later on one of the partners left and another man came in.  This man had 9 children, and he remembered how his wife soothed their tired and cranky baby while swinging in a backyard glider.  That’s how the Graco baby swing came into existence, and from there Graco has manufactured some of the best and most popular baby products in the industry.

Graco’s car seats are quality made with your child’s safety in mind.  You can’t go wrong with Graco products, and you’ll love the Graco SmartSeat All-in-One Car Seat!



The Graco SmartSeat All-in-One Car Seat is made with safety in mind.  No matter which position this convertible car seat is used, it features a harness that is adjustable to your child’s size and height.  Rear-facing in a harness from 5-40 lbs, forward-facing in a harness from 20-65 lbs, then as a belt-positioning booster from 30-100 lbs.  This seat will grow with your child keeping them safe and comfortable at all car seat stages of their life.  Also saving you money in the long run, since you don’t have to purchase multiple car seats.Graco SmartSeat All-in-One Car Seat

SafeSeat Engineering and crash safety testing has been performed to meet or exceed the US Standard FMVS213, including side impact testing, extreme car interior temperature testing, and more.

Steel-reinforced frame and base provides durability and strength.



The stay-in-car base has a belt lock off for one time install (LATCH equipped).  You don’t have to worry about installing the car seat every time you go some place, because you can leave the base in the vehicle and remove the seat itself, then conveniently pop it into place when you’re ready to go.  Locking indicators on this seat help ensure proper installation.

While the Graco SmartSeat is in booster mode, you can store the harness straps that are not in use in the integrated harness storage compartment.

The easy-to-read level indicator on the SmartSeat eliminates installation guesswork, making sure your child is riding at just the right angle.

Your child can get in and out easily with the use of the flip-up armrests, and there’s a cup holder to keep your child’s drink close by.


Comfort Graco SmartSeat All-in-One Car Seat

An EPS energy-absorbing foam liner acts to protect your child while also ensuring comfort.  The harness adjusts quickly and easily, so you can tighten or loosen it depending on your child’s size and clothing.  The 6-position adjustable head rest keeps your child comfortable, and the 5-position recline allows your child to recline in various positions for ultimate comfort.  The seat reclines without having to be re-installed, so it’s convenient for you, as well as comfortable for your child.




NHTSA has recognized the Graco SmartSeat All-in-One Car Seat with the highest government rating for “Ease of Use in All Modes.”  Of course all car seats rated by NHTSA meet Federal Safety Standards and their strict crash performance standards, however not all rated seats are easy to use or install.  Ease of use is recognized in four basic categories:

  • Evaluation of Instructions
  • Vehicle Installation Features
  • Evaluation of Labels
  • Securing the Child.

Graco’s SmartSeat received five stars in this evaluation rating!


Final Thoughts

 If you are looking for a convenient, safe, and easy-to-use convertible car seat, then the Graco SmartSeat All-in-One Car Seat should be the seat of choice for you.  It will grow with your child while keeping your child safe throughout various ages, weights, and stages.

The harness buckle is easy to clean, the seat cushion is machine-washable, and the metal and plastic parts can be washed with mild soapy water.
