Rear facing latch problem

How the heck do I sinch down the latch belt when this seat is rear-facing? My husband and I have both tried. We even tried with me pushing the button and him pulling the strap. It will NOT BUDGE! Now the seat is stuck in our back seat. Too loose to safely drive our daughter and too tight to get out. Any suggestions on how to get it out and on how to get it tight enough where it does not fly around?

    We ended up turning the seat to the forward facing position. I checked with my pediatrician and he said our daughter is close enough in age and size to put the seat forward. So that was our solution. Fits like a charm now!



    Thanks for your help!

I had trouble getting mine tight too and my sister said what she did was kneel in the seat and then pull up on the strap. I tried that and it worked! I think it pushes the seat down more so that you have more strap to pull.

Back seat belt wont lock


Check to be sure it is the right belt and latch combination.
I believe you have 3 seat belts in the rear. The latch for the two side ( door) belts is not the same as the one in the middle.
VERY often, one of the latches will fall down in between the seat rest and the back rest of the seat, often from dis-use.
This happens on all cars.
You should have 3 latches on short straps in the middle of the rear seat.
Be blessed.

Storage bin under rear seat stuck


try pushing down first and holding it down while turning the latch. If it opens then spray it with some WD 40. If you can't push down hard enough then get one of you cute little curtain climbers to stand or even jump on it while you turn the knob. I hope i/m the winner. Picture me smiling with a big grin on my face. LOL I won I won. I helped someone. Keep me happy and let me know if I did. Good Luck, Raz

Hi, I have my seat installed in a 2003 Envoy. The level lines on the side show the seat sitting too upright. Also I can not remember what the correct installation is for the top latch belt. This was used...


for a rear facing car seat, put a folded towel under the carseat where the back of the envoy seat meets the bottom cushion, this will bring the level indicators closer to level. Also, you might need to use more than one towel once you tighten the seat down.

Latch belt too short


Looked at the owner's manual of my car and realized where I needed to hook the latch belt hook strap. I was trying to hook it to the wrong thing. Car seat works great now!

Rear Facing UAS strap can't feed through?


Are you sure you're looking at the UAS/LATCH strap and not the top tether?
Your seats should have a long strap with a hook at each end that goes through the belt path (the UAS strap) and another at the top, for top tethering once you turn them forward facing.
The UAS strap may be hooked onto the sides of the seat or bundled together underneath...take another look at your manual to find out where they store it.
Alternately, install with the seat belt - neither LATCH/UAS or seat belt is "safer" than the other...the LATCH/UAS is just supposed to be more convenient.

I haven't seen a video for it, but I'll try to explain it clearly. To install it with the LATCH system, locate the anchors in your car - U shaped metal anchors in the seat, where the back meets the bench part. See your car's owner's manual - many cars don't have LATCH in the middle of the back seat, so you'll have to install it in a side seat or use the seatbelt to install, instead. Recline the carseat all the way - there is a handle under the harness adjuster on the front of the seat. Pull the handle while pushing back on the top of the seat. Tuck the top tether strap under and hook it under the base or the seat - it's only used when forward facing and is dangerous if left flapping. Pull the seat cover off of the front corners of the seat. Thread the black latch belt through the rear facing belt path (the holes on the bottom front of the seat - there should be a sticker identifying the path), making sure that it does not twist and is behind, not over or in front of, the **** strap, but in front of the the slots that the bottom of the harness straps go through. Replace the seat cover. Put the carseat where you want it in the car. Look to see that the level lines on the shoulder belt positioning guide are level with the ground. Double check that the top tether is secured underneath the seat. Fasten one latch hook to the anchor in your seat, going from above the anchor, so that the clip part of the hook is on the bottom and the solid side is on top. Repeat on the other side. Kneel in the car seat to push it firmly into the seat while pulling the strap tight through the adjuster. The seat is installed tight enough when you can grab it at the belt path and can not move it more than 1 inch side to side. It is normal to be able to pull the top of the seat towards your car's seat back some. To install it with a seatbelt - (Please note - you can only install with the LATCH system OR the seatbelt - doing both together increases the stress and force on the seat and can damage it!) Recline the seat and secure the top tether as above. Place the seat in the car and make sure that the level lines are level with the ground, as above. Thread the seat belt through the rear facing belt path (again, the holes on the bottom front of the seat...look for the sticker). Thread it under the seat pad. Like above, it should go between the bottom slots for the harness and the **** strap. Buckle the seat belt. Kneel in the seat, pull the seat belt all the way out from it's feeder, and feed it back in, pulling it as tight as you can. Check for tightness as above. While your child is rear-facing, the harness should be in a slot that is even with or below his shoulders. Pull it snug - when it's tight enough, you shouldn't be able to pinch up any slack lengthwise at the shoulders or hips and it should lay in a straight line without any sagging. Make sure the chest clip is even with the baby's armpits, not over the neck or the belly. Good luck!

LATCH Attached?


The latch can be used in the rear facing position.

On mine there was a screw which secured the nylon to the seat.

You need to remove the screw and remove the LATCH belt.

The LATCH belt must then be threaded through the belt location under the child's seat, rather than behind.

Pay attention if there are any arrows on your LATCH belt which point up, so that you thread the belt the right way. Remember that the seat is going to be rear facing! : )

On the side of my seat it shows a picture with the LATCH in use, threaded underneath the child's seat. Maybe your shows this too.

Hope this works for you!
