Combi instruction


It depends on your car seat. Follow your instruction manual for your child seat and your car. Not all seating positions have tether anchors.
"Rear-facing only" seats do not tether (these have a separate base and carrier)
"Rear-facing convertible" seats may tether.
"Forward-facing" seats usually tether (some MUST tether).

How do you install and know if its reclined. my son seems to be sitting too upright, he is only 6 months but already 21 pounds. he is appropriate weight wise. I have a 2006 explorer.


u could use the safety straps on the back. or you could run the seatbelt through the holes at the bottom of the car seat. check your users manual from your explorer to see where the safety hooks are. http://www.eddiebauer.djgusa.com/usa/eng/Instructions?ProductNumber=22790WPR

Latch belt too short


Looked at the owner's manual of my car and realized where I needed to hook the latch belt hook strap. I was trying to hook it to the wrong thing. Car seat works great now!

How to loosen the straps on envenflo tribute carseat?


This is about all I could find for you. Hope it helps.
Had one - its a huge pain in the **** and I always busted my fingernails doing it. The metal clips have to slide over the bumps to get them out. I hated that thing. May I make a suggestion? Return it. lol . I'm figuring you got a combo seat - Evenflo Generations, Bolero, Chase, that is a forward facing only seat to 40lbs, or a convertible seat like Evenflo Tribute that is forward facing to 40lbs. Since I don't know her age its hard to make a suggestion, but for just a little more money (we paid $79 for our Chase) you could get a much better seat. If she needs a convertible that will rear face, get the Evenflo Triumph for $150 or less, The Evenflo Triumph Advance (not the original Triumph, make sure it says Advance) is a great seat. $150 version at Babies R Us has padding similar to Britax seats, top slots of 17", harnesses to 35lbs rear facing, and 50lbs forward facing. $120 Walmart version just has little less plush padding. Wide open belt path, easy to install, though it doesn't have built in lockoffs. The harness adjusts at the front of the car seat, you don't have to take the car seat out of the car just to raise/lower the straps. It's one of only 2 seats that does this (The Britax Boulevard is the other, I believE), and it has infinite harness adjustment so the harness always fits perfectly until its outgrown. No more tugging straps to tighten them either. You tighten and loosen the harness using knobs on the side of the seat. As a major bonus, it can be used in a recline position even in forward facing mode. Awesome for kids who still sleep in the car. I LOVE THIS SEAT! LOL My son, who is too big for every other car seat at Walmart has the same amount of room in this as the Britax Marathon.

If she is forward facing (over 30lbs and over 2years old) then a Graco Nautilus would be a lot easier to use and install, $150. Harnesses to 65lbs and then becomes a booster, will be the last seat you have to buy her. Metal reinforced.

Combo seats are usually a major waste of money, as they only harness to 40lbs, no more than most convertible car seats, so you're really not getting any more use out them then the convertible seat.

Need to adjust restraining straps up to next position cannot get straps through and cannot see how they come out (No instruction Manual when bought) Actual Model not known but on a label has SI 2008 265776


Contact the manufacturer. They ought to email you a manual within minutes. Manuals for car seats are very important, so you'll know when your child outgrows it. In my car seats, the harness is hooked on the back to a metal buckle-looking thing that is attached to a piece of webbing. The webbing goes under the seat and out the front, where you pull on it to adjust the tension. Simply remove the harness straps from the buckle-looking thing, pull out the front, push through the higher harness strap position, and reattach to the buckle-looking thing.

Rear Facing UAS strap can't feed through?


Are you sure you're looking at the UAS/LATCH strap and not the top tether?
Your seats should have a long strap with a hook at each end that goes through the belt path (the UAS strap) and another at the top, for top tethering once you turn them forward facing.
The UAS strap may be hooked onto the sides of the seat or bundled together underneath...take another look at your manual to find out where they store it.
Alternately, install with the seat belt - neither LATCH/UAS or seat belt is "safer" than the other...the LATCH/UAS is just supposed to be more convenient.

Rear seat single latch


The latch that is on the top is called the tether strap. It is only used in the forward facing position.

Garage Sale Car Seat


If you push down on the top of the handle you should then be able to move it. Also, to remove the straps you have to feed the bottom portion of the straps from underneath the seat up through first and then you should be able to feed through the material to remove the pad.
