Re: cannot tighten graco snugride in my toyota sequoia
Does your Pilot or Sequoia have leather seats? It seems its harder to get them to tighten right on leather. If it is leather, trying getting a seat saver from BabysRUs. They will give you more friction when tighting. Also tr!physically kneeling on the base when installing. I know it sounds crazy but if you shift your weight from side to side its much easier to tighten down. Good Luck|!

We have designed many of our car seats to work with more than one base, for your convenience. Please see the chart here for Classic Connect models.
The SnugRide Click Connect 30, 35, 35LX and 40 infant car seat carriers are compatible with any SnugRide Click Connect infant car seat base. Consumers should adhere to the height and weight requirements for the SnugRide Click Connect infant car seat carriers as stated in their owner's manual; however, the SnugRide Click Connect 40 infant car seat carrier is restricted to a height limit of 32 inches when used with a SnugRide Click Connect 30, 35 or 35LX base.
You can use the base or just use the car's seat belts to hold the car seat in place. Make sure it is tight. Download the instructions from Graco or it should be on the side of the car seat on a sticker.
hmm thats easy, theres big hole in the base stream the seatbelt through thsoe and tighetn, if u have ltch., EVEN BETTER! they should already be attached but if not feed through the same holes as regulare seat and tighten (i personally kneel in the base to tighten them up!)
Slide the fabric all the way to one side to expose the center clasp (hook). Then using both hands grasp the clasp like you were putting you hands on handelbar (placing your thumbs under the bottom of the clasp about 1 inch apart). Then push up with your thumbs while pulling down with your fingers (which should be wraped around the outside of the clasp). You will need to push with your thumbs all the way up in order to separate the two pieces (note - it feels like you are going to break it but you wont).
Putting them back to gether is just a matter of aligning the tabs in the slots and pressing the two parts together.
The straps should have a release buckle, just pull it really hard while the carseat is removed. Its a lot easier if you put all your weight on the base like kneeling down on it while pushing the release buckle toward the crease of the seat and alternating weight on the base. Good Luck, and remember, you can always cut and replace the belt if necessary!!:)
HI! I've had 3 babies and alwyas use the Sungride! My presonal trick......First, be sure to roll up a towel (try different sizes for the perfect fit) and push it under by the seat crease (where the back cushion and seat cushion meet). Then, when you are pulling the belt to make it tighter, put your knee in it to add some weight and really get it tightened! I'm sure you'll notice a world of difference! :)
