Re: shield reattachment

OK, I found my manual and have successfully removed the base, shield and harness...oh rah! Here's what the manual says, word for word for REINSTALL: IF YOU DO NOT REATTACH THE SHIELD AND HARNESS CORRECTLY, YOUR CHILD MAY COME OUT OF THE RESTRAINT IN A CRASH, RESULTING IN SERIOUS INJURY OR DEATH. NOTE: It is easier to complete all the following steps if the headrest is in the lowest position. TO REPLACE BASE: Remove bar from base and place shell onto base so it lines up securely. Starting with the rounded end, push bar compeltely through slot until it locks in place. TO REPLACE SHIELD: Lay shield upside down with the shield closest to you. Position arms over holes, align notch over keyhole, and push arms in; rotate shield over to the front of the seat. From inside shell, put locks onto ends of both arms and rotate locks clockwise to secure in place. To replace the pad, see page 15. Thread the harness ends through the slots. The harness MUST go over the metal bar in back. Reattach ends of harness to harness bracket. There were pictures but I'm a lousy artist but you should be able to get the gist of it. The locks are the little round white plastic parts with tabs sticking out to be used to twist them into place. REMOVAL OF SHIELD: TO REMOVE SHIELD: Unlock buckle. Unfasten ends of harness from harness bracket in back of seat. (Harness bracket can be looped over brace on back of car seat for storage). Adjust headrest all the way down. Rotate shield up and over back of car seat. Undo 4 fabric clips, work cover over sholder belt guides and pull cover away from side of shell so you can reach te lock. Push in on white lock, turn counterclockwise and remove. Repeat for other side. Pull arms out of holes and remove shield, pulling harness straps out othrough front of seat. You must save the shield and locks in order to use the shield with the seat in the future. The locks can be saved in the storage compartment in the base. TO REMOVE BASE: Move seat to fully reclined posiion. Push down on tab on right side of base. From the other side, start pushing on bar and pull the bar copletely out. Lift shell off base. You must save the bar in order to use the seat with the base in the future; the easiest way to do so is to replace the bar. Push the rounded end over the tab all the way across the base until it shaps in place. Hope this helps!

Re: shield reattachment

Well, I don't have a solution to getting it back on, but if you could tell me how to get the stupid thing off, I could maybe figure out how to get it back on for you. :) I can't find anything about it via Cosco either. grrrrr!

The PortAbout 5 was last manufactured in 2005, making it very likely the seat has expired. Contact Evenflo (800-233-5921, about the expiration date and reattaching the visor (if the seat has not expired). Please DO NOT use an expired seat!
Manufacturer states that, when installing this rear facing only restraint in an outboard seating position, there should be at least 1.5" of space between the restraint, including the handle, and the
back of the front seat.
Do not remove the harness strap from the adjuster. If the harness is ever mistakenly removed, Evenflo will send a new harness with adjuster.

How do you remove the cover and belts on an evenflo car seat with this number on the side 25801158?

Turn the booster seat around to the back and locate the metal splitter plate that the harness is attached to. Remove both harness straps from the splitter plate. Locate the TensionRight knob located on each side of the seat in the front by the baby’s foot area. Turn the TensionRight knob to the back as far as it will go to take up the slack on the splitter plate strap. Pull both harness straps through the seat back to the front of the seat. Remove the harness strap from both sides of the chest clip and from the buckle tongues. NOTE: Please leave the buckle tongues locked into the **** strap for storage. Remove the harness strap from the seat. NOTE: Reattach the chest clip to the harness strap so they don’t get lost. Turn the booster seat upside down and locate the metal harness anchor. Turn the metal anchor sideways and push it through the slot to the front of the seat.

I can't reattach the shield to my Alpha Omegal car seat 22-180 because I can't figure out how the white clips go onto the springs. I really need a manual.

I hope by now you have figured it out. the clips go on the inside under the seat cover. attached to the part of the arm you inserted and turn to lock. the clips don't go on the springs.

Installing 3rd row seat in a 1996 Tahoe

You will have to install the seat with the seatbelt, as you do not have the LATCH system.

It is highly dependent on the type of car seat , how you will install it, depending on where the holes ont he seat is.

If when you pull the belt, it locks on its own, you do not need a locking clip to ensure the tightness of the install.

Once you get the seat in super tight, pull the belt out, twist the female end of the stalk one time, then reattach seatbelt. Should give a very tight fit.

Best best is to check out the web site and see who is a car seat installer in your area to help you out
Thank you!

Remove the canipy

take a pair of plyers to the clips on the back of the seat and pull the clip out as u clinch the connector pice together to fit it through the hole. doing both sides will release the canopy. then all you have to do is take a butter knife and take off the black things theres a clip on one side youll see it just pry up the black clip and pull down on the white then just pull out the plastic pieces. oh and remember air dry it. other wise youll have a heck of a time threading the plastic rods through

ps even flo car seats blow big time and i still have trouble with the harness adjusters
