Re: The Latch Tether difficult to tighten

Pre-tighten the latch strap to where you think it should be and and latch it onto one of the car's anchors between the base and the back of the seat. Then have an adult sit or kneel in the baby seat which will significantly push it down into the car's seat cushions. This will allow you to latch it to the other anchor between the back and the base of the car's seat. When the adult gets out of the baby / toddler seat, the seat should be nice and tight. You may have to make some adjustments as you go.

I hope this helps

Re: The Latch Tether difficult to tighten

Could you use the LATCH belt from the last seat that you used when your child was smaller? All the LATCH belts I have seen look the same.

What does cosco scenera model 22216-llp

You should see a harness strap over each shoulder that goes though the shell, behind the seat, and connects to a metal splitter plate.

The front of the harnesses (2) extend down though the buckle tongues then into the hip area of the seat.

There is a crotch strap that comes out of the shell where the child\'s crotch is. The buckle is attached to this strap.

There will be a LATCH (Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children) strap that goes through one of two belt paths. If used, this strap must go though the proper belt path.

Finally, there is a top tether strap the comes from the back of the seat - near the top - that will attach to the tether anchor in your car (see your car owner\'s manual)

My suggestion to you is to purchase a new seat. The protection of your child is most important.

How do I hook the booster car seat up? What is

The "extra" belt w/ 2 hooks is for cars equipped with "LATCH" system. If your car is 2002 or newer, you should have it. Look for 1/2 inch dots in the seat fabric near the seat belts, feel just below it for a tiedown ring. I know it goes against guy rules, but maybe read the directions that came w/ your car seat. If you got it 2nd hand, go to walmart and read the directions on the floor models.

Need to wash the cover but don't know how to get it off with out causing damage

"I bought this car seat because it was able to go from rear facing to forward facing to a booster, and it looks nice. I spent many minutes trying to figure out how to take the fabric cover off and ended up having to use a screw driver to pop the plastic caps that hold the fabric on the plastic frame! It was a big hassle to take the infant headrest off and extremely difficult to remove the bottom latch! However, it was very easy to adjust the straps and to install."

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.

I haven't seen a video for it, but I'll try to explain it clearly. To install it with the LATCH system, locate the anchors in your car - U shaped metal anchors in the seat, where the back meets the bench part. See your car's owner's manual - many cars don't have LATCH in the middle of the back seat, so you'll have to install it in a side seat or use the seatbelt to install, instead. Recline the carseat all the way - there is a handle under the harness adjuster on the front of the seat. Pull the handle while pushing back on the top of the seat. Tuck the top tether strap under and hook it under the base or the seat - it's only used when forward facing and is dangerous if left flapping. Pull the seat cover off of the front corners of the seat. Thread the black latch belt through the rear facing belt path (the holes on the bottom front of the seat - there should be a sticker identifying the path), making sure that it does not twist and is behind, not over or in front of, the **** strap, but in front of the the slots that the bottom of the harness straps go through. Replace the seat cover. Put the carseat where you want it in the car. Look to see that the level lines on the shoulder belt positioning guide are level with the ground. Double check that the top tether is secured underneath the seat. Fasten one latch hook to the anchor in your seat, going from above the anchor, so that the clip part of the hook is on the bottom and the solid side is on top. Repeat on the other side. Kneel in the car seat to push it firmly into the seat while pulling the strap tight through the adjuster. The seat is installed tight enough when you can grab it at the belt path and can not move it more than 1 inch side to side. It is normal to be able to pull the top of the seat towards your car's seat back some. To install it with a seatbelt - (Please note - you can only install with the LATCH system OR the seatbelt - doing both together increases the stress and force on the seat and can damage it!) Recline the seat and secure the top tether as above. Place the seat in the car and make sure that the level lines are level with the ground, as above. Thread the seat belt through the rear facing belt path (again, the holes on the bottom front of the seat...look for the sticker). Thread it under the seat pad. Like above, it should go between the bottom slots for the harness and the **** strap. Buckle the seat belt. Kneel in the seat, pull the seat belt all the way out from it's feeder, and feed it back in, pulling it as tight as you can. Check for tightness as above. While your child is rear-facing, the harness should be in a slot that is even with or below his shoulders. Pull it snug - when it's tight enough, you shouldn't be able to pinch up any slack lengthwise at the shoulders or hips and it should lay in a straight line without any sagging. Make sure the chest clip is even with the baby's armpits, not over the neck or the belly. Good luck!

Latch when used as booster?

No, boosters are never latched to the car, so when using it as a booster, disregard the latch.

Instruction for installing Evenflo Triumph Car Seat. We are the grandparents and our granson is staying with us for a few days. Our daughter is loanig us their car seat, but won't be there to help instal...

On the back of the car seat you should have a black hook with a safety latch on it connected to a adjustable strap. You will require an anchor point to connect this to in the back of your car, depending on your car (sedan, station wagon,4x4 ect) your anchor point will have a small removable cover over it about 1 inch square or so, if you have not got one already installed make sure you get the anchor as well. This will be a small metal latch with a spacer and bolt with a safety nut the nut goes under the bottom of the parcel shelf if it is a sedan if not you won't need the nut. The the hook will attach to the anchor and then you just loosen the adjustable strap out until it is fairly loose (about 3 or 4 inches of play between the car seat and the baby seat will be fine) now if the baby is small and needs the seat to lay down ie they can't hold there head up or are to small to face forward, have the head end of the baby seat to the front of the car and set the seat belt throught the hole thats horizontal to the car seat. If they can face forward same thing just stand seat upright and feed the seat belt through the horizontal holes. The hole for the seat belt should be about 2 to 3 inches high and about 4 or 5 inches long. Just becareful not to put the seat belt over the childs belts on the baby seat. Then just tighten the adjustable ******** the baby seat until firmly tightened against the car seat and you are done. The baby seat will still move a bit from side to side but if it moves more than 3 inches or so tighten the adjustable strap even more.

LATCH belt storage in rear position

 it definitely is NOT self explanitory as to where the LATCH is supposed to be anchored when not in use. It took some time, but I figured it out. The Top Tether should be hooked on the recline prop/foot/base area - depending on which way you have this positioned - for forward or rear-facing use, the piece to hook the top tether on could either be towards the front (rf mode) or back (ff mode). It's just a simple cut out in the plastic. The Lower Anhcors need to be clipped to a small plastic notch along the back side of the seat shell - you have to lift up the cover to get a good look at them - they are towards the top of the seat on the back and don't really look like much but do secure the lower anchors when attached.
I hope that helps! Please let us know if there is anything else we can assist you with.

Can't Install

You definately should get the rear tether connector to get this car seat in snug. It is the best way and designed to be used rear facing withthe Roundabout. Click the link (or cut and paste into your browser) below to see what I am referring to. When you get it you should connect it to the passenger seat belt track as that is connected to the frame of the car. Richard -
