Need help with putting straps back on

I have seen the phone number and no one naswers I wish someone would just type the steps or a diagram to show how to do it. I am out of state and as everyone else took it apart to wash the cover and straps. My father was the one who disconnected the straps unfortunatly he can't remember how to reassemble and he is an engineer lol. So I am in a quander. I have to leaave and don't want to drive 4 hours back home with out having this seat with properly reattached straps and none of the answers are answers. we got it from the hospital in 2000 and my son lost the manuel from several moves.

I know this is months later, but here you are in case you (or anyone else) needs the info again. First, though, I feel that it wouldn't be responsible to neglect to tell you that if you got the seat in 2000, it is expired and no longer safe to use. Car seats generally expire after 6 years because the plastic degrades over time - in a 10 year old seat, it can look fine but actually be brittle enough that the entire harness can rip out of the seat if it's an accident. For the manual, visit Cosco's website and fill in the product number and date of manufacture. It will bring up a PDF file of the manual that you can download. To rethread the straps, first replace the **** strap. Slide the metal plate down through the slot in the seat, with the buckle facing out. Slide the metal clip under the tab and push it down to lock it in place. Facing the seat, start by threading the end of the harness strap down through the slot of the left side of the bottom (where the child's right hip would be). Under the pad/cover, thread it across the bottom of the seat and up through the matching slot on the right side. Pull it until you have equal lengths on both sides. Thread the buckles onto the the strap (one one each end) and buckle them. Thread the chest buckle onto both ends, making sure that the harness doesn't twist. Buckle it, too. Push the ends through the harness slots. Pull the harness through to the back, making sure that it goes OVER the metal bar, but UNDER the plastic adjuster handle. There is a loop sewn into each end of the harness. The adjuster strap has a splitter plate, kind of shaped like a Y. Slide each loop over the ends of the plate and all of the way into the slot, so that the curved ends of the splitter plate are exposed and the strap is secure in it's slot. Adjust the harness height by squeezing the metal bar on the back of the seat (the one behind the harness) forward and moving it and the plastic adjuster bar up or down to the correct position (at or below the shoulders for rear-facing, at or above the shoulders for forward facing). Do note that the very top slot is NOT for use with the harness - it's only to adjust the headrest when the seat is being used as a seat belt positioning booster and is not reinforced to support the harness in an accident! Adjust the tightness of the straps with the button/extra length on the front of the seat. Properly tightened straps should lay in a straight line without sagging and you should not be able to pinch up any slack (lengthwise going down the harness, not across the width of it) at the shoulders or hips. Adjust the chest buckle to lie in line with your child's armpits, never his neck or belly.

Yes, this car seat is a booster seat rather then a harnessed car seat.

The requirements are 30-100lbs and 34" to 57".

It's generally recommended that boosters are not used until 5-6 years old when the child is able to sit in proper position in the car on both long and short trips after they have outgrown their harnessed seat.

Dont know how to put straps back on car seat correctly Safety first Alpha Omego Elite 22456-BVL need to see owner manual


It very difficult trying to explained to your what go wheres, your about the 5th person but different types of car seat having the same problems putting the strap back together correctly which I try to help. It would be a big safety issue for your child if someone gave you the wrong directions and you dont do it correctly and you think you did. I my self spend almost over an hours with mine when I undo mine to wash it, man what a pain. the best thing to do is to find the store that sell your type of car seats and take your car seat in with you and look at their display and copy it, trust me they wont mind. most of them will be fairly close and the same but you will get an idea. when you do get it back on, take a pictures and also have a friend watch you also, two eyes better than one, undo it and practice couple times eventually you wont have a problems next time.

Someone removed all harness from my Cosco, Summit car seat. I cannot figure out how to get them attached and will not do it without knowing I have done it safely. Help!


My daughter has a car seat just like this one, and I wash it about once a month so I hope I can explain this detailed. First, at the base there is a metal rod that will need removed. When you take this rod out the base and seat will seperate. Set base aside and turn seat upside down. Take your strap and put an end into each slot. Turn seat over and pull your straps even. Put the two black pieces for your latch on (one on each side) then put you chest pieces on and run straps thru slots on back of seat. Turn seat around and make sure the straps go OVER the silver bar in back (this allows you to adjust shoulder height) Secure to the metal piece that runs to front for tightening adjustment. Sey seat back on base and replace rod. Hope this was helpful.
