FOR LARGER KIDS: If the child is over 35lbs, use the belt and shoulder harness as you would an adult and simply extend the belt over the seat. You do not need to install any of the built in straps.
SMALLER CHILDREN (UNDER 35 lbs): 1) If your child is under 35lbs get the locking clip that came with the seat if you have a seat with a shoulder harness attached. Otherwise, it isn't necessary. Pull the shoulder harness down to the base of the waste strap and then use the locking clip to bind it into place.
2) For a smaller child you will need to install the built in straps like so.
3. Set the seat in place running the waist strap through the back of the seat and clipping it on the other side.
Take the base off if it has one, either clips, screws, or a metal rod holding it on. Take the belts out. They should slide off the clip at the back of the seat, then unthread belts from buckles. The buckle/strap between the legs usually has a metal keeper below the seat. To remove you need to bend/twist the keeper until you can push it UP through the seat and remove the belt/strap. It is now a booster seat for use with a lap/shoulder belt in the car. Store all the parts you removed in a ziploc bag for when your child outgrows it so it can be reused.
below the strap that comes up between childs legs there is a **** in the fabric, stick your finger in & push the top of metal tab..then hold that down while pulling the shoulder straps, pull the straps from the lower half tho, not up high
your child's weight and the lap & shoulder belt hold the seat in place. Run the lap part across your child's lap and the shoulder part should cross your child's chest and not cross his/her neck. There should be some slots on the side near the top to allow some adjustment of the shoulder strap.
Tilt seat back and slacken straps fully. Follow each shoulder strap through back of seat and down towards lower back of seat. There you will find (maybe hiding under a plastic cover) a metal bracket that retains the straps. You can slide the straps out of this, pull out and thread back through at a higher point.
The actual tension adjust ment is usually a metal clip that you push or pull which is located in the centre/ front are of the seat, or front/centre, underneath where the child's feet hang.
Ok. First don't panic, I did the same thing with mine! lol. In the front of the seat where your childs legs hang, there is a velco flap. Lift it up and you'll see a metal button(but it doesn't look like a button). Push it in and at the same time pull one of the shoulder straps. This will loosen the strap. Then adjust accordingly. If you remove the back plastic piece you will see all the straps underneath if you want to eventually replace them. You can also adjust the height from the back if needed. Good Luck!
the above link is for the manual but here are the instructions.
If you have two plastic harness adjusters located on the back of your seat please follow the following steps: On the very bottom of your car seat locate two metal anchors one on each side of the seat, pull the metal anchors out of position and turn them sideways and feed them through to the front of the seat. Release the buckle tongues and chest clip and pull the harness straps to the back of the seat while pushing the chest clips, buckle tongues and harness anchors through to the back of the car seat. NOTE: You may find it easier by pulling down the seat pad when feeding the straps through. All pieces will fit through the harness slots. Choose the appropriate slots for the new harness position. Push the harness anchors, harness straps, buckle tongues and chest clips back through to the front of the seat. Once the straps are completely pulled back through to the front of the seat, make sure the straps are not twisted by clipping the chest clip together and buckling the buckle tongues, then feed the metal anchors through to the bottom of the seat and clip anchors back into place. ********************************************************************* If you have an adjustment strap that is located in between the child?s foot area that allows you to loosen and tighten the straps please follow the following steps: Loosen the harness straps by pressing the harness release button that is located between the child?s legs near the feet area; while pulling on the harness straps from the front of the car seat near the shoulder area. Turn the car seat around and from the back side of the seat follow the straps down to the metal splitter plate, remove the ends of both straps from the metal splitter plate. Once the straps are removed, pull both harness straps completely through to the front of the seat. Choose the appropriate slots for the new harness position and feed both straps through from the front of the seat to the back of the seat. Making sure straps are not twisted; hook each end of the straps back onto the metal splitter plate. Tighten the harness straps by pulling the adjustment strap located on the front the car seat between the child?s legs.

There is a trick to this. All the straps are kinda connected together. The main harness is one piece, a clever clip on each of the lap section. (one on each side) needs to be removed to allow the belt to slide through the seat and cover openings. Once here the strap needs to go through the actual seatbelt buckle. Once the buckles are off you can pull the harness through the shoulder opening. The note to take here is that the harness runs through a loop on the adjuster belt (a narrower belt that runs from the back of the chair under the it to and through the adjusting fastener) Once through the loop you can pull the main harness strap free from the chair. Now the next part, depress the release clip of the adjuster and with the other hand pull this belt free from adjuster. It may require a bit of two handed work as belt nears the end. You should now have a wide belt, a narrow belt, 2x clips and 2x harness buckles. All you need to do now is remove the adjuster which usually requires the manipulation of a metal 'B' buckle which is sewn into the loop to be twisted sideways to allow it to pass through the opening. You are home free now. The cover should be elasticated around the edging and easily removed for washing.(you can also put the straps in too) Now is also a good time to just give the actual seat a good clean too. Refitting is reversal of removal.
However REMEMBER and NOTE the way clips,buckles and which openings the straps went through when removing. There are usually a couple. Mark the items with a marker if you think you'll forget. On refitting you might want to put it to the next one up. (as a child grows ie. the shoulder straps should be above the shoulders when the child is seated, equally important is they must be the same on both sides.) I think there might be a couple of slots for the adjuster strap. You might want to move that one out too. Have your child seated in the chair before you start the reassembly and mark out the openings the staps need to pass through which would be most comfortable for the him/her. Good Luck.
