There is another thread on this.

Basically, locate the ends of the straps on either side of the seat. You can remove the plastic end thingy and take the strap out. Then re-thread the strap. Remember to thread it through the thin grey strap (which adjusts the tension of the main shoulder straps) as well as the little metal guide at the back of the chair.

Your problem may also be that the length-adjuster (thinner grey strap) is too tight. You can loosen it by pressing on the button located just in front of the main buckle and pulling on the shoulder straps. This is also how you tighten the shoulder straps - by pulling on the thinner grey strap.

Generally, the shoulder straps should come out around the childs shoulder level. Higher is ok. Lower is bad because it doesn't secure him in.

The PortAbout 5 was last manufactured in 2005, making it very likely the seat has expired. Contact Evenflo (800-233-5921, www.evenflo.com) 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.

I dissasembled the car seat so I need get manual in order to re-assebly the belts in the correct way , can you help me


I just noticed my car seat had a safety recall back in 2007 and noticed you had the same recall on the 22150. I just ordered a new kit from Cosco (which was free) to replace the faulty parts. Here's the recall notice ans website to go to: http://www.safety1st.com/usa/eng/News/Detail/309-
Click on "Harness Adjustment Strap Inspection" and give your info. to order the kit.
News 8/30/2007 12:00:00 AM
Dorel Juvenile Group Announces a Voluntary Safety Recall of the Harness Adjustment ******** Certain Cosco®, Safety 1st® and Eddie Bauer® Brand Child Restraint Systems
Columbus, IN August 30, 2007- Dorel Juvenile Group (DJG) is issuing a voluntary safety recall for certain Cosco®, Safety 1st® and Eddie Bauer® brand child restraint systems manufactured during November 2003 through December 2005. Although no injuries have been reported, there is a potential for the harness adjustment strap to loosen during use. If this were to occur, the harness may be loose around the child, possibly increasing the risk of injury in a crash. We feel that it is important to replace the harness adjustment strap.

Model numbers affected are:
Cosco®: Alpha Omega®, Alpha Omega EliteTM: 22150, 22155, 22180, 22269; Eddie Bauer®: 3-in-1, Deluxe 3-in-1, Deluxe Convertible: 22740, 22750, 22755, 22756, 22757, 22770; Safety 1st® : Alpha EliteTM, Alpha Omega®, Alpha Omega EliteTM, Alpha SportTM, InteraTM, EnspiraTM: 22151, 22450, 22451, 22452, 22453, 22455, 22460, 22480, 22481

The model number and date of manufacture may be found on a sticker located on the side or back of the child restraint system.

DJG will contact all registered owners and provide them with information on how to obtain a free repair kit to replace the harness adjustment strap. Those consumers who have not registered their product should visit www.djgusa.com or call 800-219-0509 to order a free repair kit. The affected seats should not be returned to the retailer.

DJG encourages parents to obtain and install the repair kit as soon as possible. Parents may continue to use the child restraint system as directed in their instruction manual. Parents should be sure to adjust the harness adjuster strap snugly each time they put their child in the child restraint system. If there is any difficulty adjusting the harness adjustment strap, or it does not remain tight, DJG suggests using a different child restraint system until the repair kit has been installed.

To check for harness slippage:
(1) Fully tighten the harness, (2) pull on the harness straps without pressing or lifting the harness adjustment lever. If movement occurs, the harness is experiencing slippage.

Please confirm correct fitting instrucitons for Babylove child restraint model 620


I am not familiar with this model, but with all child restraints, the nylon belts should come out of the whole that is no more than 1 inch below the childs shoulders. Also when restraining the child, there should be a finger width between the harness and the childs belly or chest area.

Trying to adjust the child seatbelt harness higher in the carseat


I located my instruction manual for this carseat. It instructed me to turn the carseat over & located on the bottom are two metal brackets that lock the seatbelt harness. You just have to detach each metal bracket & pull through the bottom slots of the carseat, readjust each seatbelt to whatever level is necessary & push back through the bottom of the seat to lock securely. Thanks anyway for your help!

I need help putting my childs care seat back together


Bring the straps up through the holes on the bottom of the seat, one on each side. The metal plate on the end should pull in flat and snug against the plastic. Slide the buckle pieces back on, making sure they're facing the right direction to snap in. Slide the chest clip back onto both straps. Place the ends of the straps through the slots you want the harness at (at or below the child's shoulders for rear-facing, at or above the shoulder's for forward facing), making sure that they don't twist. Pull them down low behind the seat. The adjuster part of the strap has a kind of Y shaped metal plate - pull it up to meet the ends of your straps, making sure that it doesn't twist, either. There are loops at the end of the harness straps. Feed the curved part of the Y through the loop of the strap that's on the same side of the seat. Pull it all the way through, so that the fatter part on the ends of the metal plate are exposed and curve around a bit beyond the strap so that it doesn't slip back off. Do the same with the other side. Now adjust the harness to fit your child. When it's tightened properly, you should not be able to pinch up any slack, lengthwise, at the hips or shoulders, and it should lie in a straight line down the front, with no drooping. Also adjust the chest clip - it should lie even with your child's armpits - not up in the neck, and not over the belly, where it can't do it's job properly. (It's job is to hold the straps over the center of the shoulders...if it's over the belly, they're likely to slip down off of the shoulders in an accident or sudden stop and also poses the danger of internal injuries.) If you also took the **** buckle out, it goes back in from the top. Turn it so that you can slip the metal plate through the slot, slide it through, and then pull the plate flat underneath, so that it can't come back through. One other thing - car seat harnesses should never be submerged in water, as it can damage and weaken the webbing. They should only cleaned with a damp rag. If you put your harness in water when you washed the rest of the seat, I'd strongly recommend contacting Cosco (contact info here) to order a replacement harness.

Manual for a car seat


First set the harness together at the chest clip and the **** buckle. Then slide each shoulder strap through at the best height for your child. For a forward facing seat , it should be at or above the shoulders. Once both shoulders are passed through, there is a Tshapped metal flat piece, each belt slides onto that. That is 2 of the 4 ends of the straps squared away. The bottom 2 , you slide through the holes in the car seat, through the holes in the shell of the seat, and then pull to ensure they are in tight. Thank you!

Evenflo front facing car seat


To adjust the height of the hanress you will need to turn the seat around and locate two metal, rectangular plates. These plates are attached to the harness straps and should attached with plastic tabs. you will need to remove the plate in order to change the harness height. To do so, you may need a screwdriver to loosen the tab enough to release the plate. When removed, feed the plates back through the front of the seat through the predetermined slots. Reroute the plates through the appropriate holes in the seat that best fit your child.

https://plweb.evenflo.com/faq_detail.aspx?faqid=4990 Question: How do I care and clean for my PortAbout 3/PortAbout V infant car seat? Answer: To clean pad slide the elastic loops of the seat pad off of the seat shell. Remove the harness system. Cloth pad, canopy, and head support may be machine washed separately cold water, delicate cycle, tumble dry 10-15 minutes, low heat. Wipe straps, buckles, and harness adjusters with warm damp cloth and mild soap. Air dry. NOTE: DO NOT submerge harness assembly in water.
