I cant believe how this seat actually fits in a Honda Element! The anti rebound bar actually enables you to get the seat in super tight so it doesnt budge an inch. You recline your car seat, put in the child seat and then put your car seat back upright and it hugs the rebound bar and gives it the tightest fit. I would recommend this to anyone even those with small cars It also fits center position on a Fiat 500L, but it is really high so if you intend to see well out the back window, center spot on a small car is not the ideal place. Also, i have no idea why people say this is hard to assmble!?! You'd have to be totally inept if you cant figure out how to attach a bar with two cotter pins. Its made so you cannot put the cotter pins in the wrong way and its super obvious how the cotter pins go in once you take a look at it. It even has instructions written so simply that a 5 year old could understand them. Its very simple to install, much easier than my Britax Boulevard Click Tight! Seems a lot safer too. However, this seat weights a ton because it has steel bars. I got this because of the rebound bar. I just couldnt understand why almost all child seats lift up slightly in the front because there is nothing holding them from rebounding. Then i saw some Youtube videos that shows what happens in a car crash when the seats rebound. Then i found out about the rear facing tether that prevents rebound. So i bought the Britax Boulevard for that reason. Then I found out about the anti -rebound bar on the Cleks and prefer it to the tether.
I did my master bath vanity top with this product several months ago. The product is great, and the surface still looks just like it did when I finished it. It is a tremendous improvement over the previous laminate that came with the house. Another reviewer mentioned problems with the topcoat going cloudy and bubbling up from standing water. I have not had that experience at all. I don't have constant water on my vanity, but I generally don't bother to dry up day to day splashes. I was thorough when applying silicone caulk around the edges of my sink, so no water is getting underneath the topcoat. Getting water underneath the top coat will definitely ruin the finish. (I am not implying that the other reviewer failed to caulk properly; it could have been a a bad batch of topcoat.)
