I have a sunshine kids radian 80sl. Model US18500. Serial 090900106 03565. My latch strap does not remain tight. I can loosen it with one finger, which means my daughter climbing in and out can bump it and loosen it. It also has loosened over time on it's on. When I first install it, it is a completely rock solid install, but if you pull back and forth on the seat a few times you can feel it loosening. I do not feel like my daughter is safe in this seat in a crash. (related vehicle information: Model year=2008, make=Toyota, model=Highlander).
