LATCH Attached? When I tried to install the LATCH belt (rear facing) it won't stretch far enough because it is stitched to a piece of nylon which is rivited to the plastic in the center back of the carseat. The instruction manual does not show the latch belt secured to the carseat at all and I was wondering if it would be ok to cut the belt loose. There is nothing in the manual about the LATCH belt being permanently attached to the carseat. It shows it loose for both the forward and rear facing installations. Thanks, David

    The Latch Belt doesn't reach the hooks in my car when the carseat is rear facing. I'm not sure how to fix the problem?

The latch can be used in the rear facing position.

On mine there was a screw which secured the nylon to the seat.

You need to remove the screw and remove the LATCH belt.

The LATCH belt must then be threaded through the belt location under the child's seat, rather than behind.

Pay attention if there are any arrows on your LATCH belt which point up, so that you thread the belt the right way. Remember that the seat is going to be rear facing! : )

On the side of my seat it shows a picture with the LATCH in use, threaded underneath the child's seat. Maybe your shows this too.

Hope this works for you!

Don't cut it off. If it won't reach and you can't adjust the length of it, just use the lap belt until you child can face forward. I didn't use the LATCH system when my son was younger because my car didn't have it and he was fine. the seat was secure enough with the lap belt only.

Hope this helps.

Elna 2005 I don't have the manual. Which setting is for the stretch stitch?


A special stretch stitch is not required to sew stretchy fabric. All one needs is a zig-zag that is wide enough and close together enough to allow the fabric to stretch without breaking the stitching thread. (Test it on a piece of scrap fabric you are using, give it a good tug and see if the thread breaks.)

NOTE: be sure to use a ball-point needle. A sharp needle will tend to cut the fabric threads and your stretch fabric will eventually develop holes and runs commonly found in knits.

There doesn't appear to be a manual for your machine, however, you can usually find a manual close to your machine model and the instructions will be similar enough to suffice. Perhaps you will find one with instructions for sewing stretch fabric:

I need help with burda 7187


Usually with a wrap dress, you join front triangular pieces to bodice back at shoulders and side seams (often leaving a slit open in one side seam to pull the tie through). Then stay stitch neck and front edges to prevent stretching. Then neaten neck edges turn and stitch, or attach a facing. Probably if this pattern has a facing then you may need to attach skirt to waist and also attach the tie ends to the front edge before facing is attached. So when you turn facing to inside you will have the tie end in position at the point of the bodice/skirt seam on both sides of the dress.

How do I overlock stretch fabrics so the stitches won't break when the fabric stretches?


I suggest also setting the stitch length to about 2 (very close together). When the stitch is shorter, it seems to be able to give a little more. I also use woolly nylon, but I still had the problem (especially when hemming). This is how I solved my problem....

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.

How do you install the car seat for rear facing?


Hey Just posting this for future reference for other people since I see that you posted over a month ago :) ..

To install the car seat in rear facing I used the latch system. (you can use the latch system if your vehicle has latches..they are tiny metal bars in between the seats)

First of all with this dumb car seat I found out that the latch system was not in the proper place so if you find that yours is not where the diagram shows (in the manual) then you'll have to take off the seat cover and manually put them in their place. Then go ahead and clip onto the latches in the rear facing position. If the car seat is too far forward then inline the seat. If the car seat is still not leaning far enough back to be level with the ground (there should be two level marks on the top/side of the car seat) place a rolled towel (or roll a 2x4 in a rolled towel like i did) then clip onto the latches. Hope this helps someone.

Insuficient clearance for caset to install


There is a lock on the door mechanism. Unless the belts are good, the machine will not recycle to move the heads down far enough for the tape to be removed, so the door is interlocked to prevent damage.

Take the case off and push the door release and watch where the release lever hits a small nylon piece. You can pushit down with a pencil or screwdriver and the door will open. This white nylon piece will stay locked down if the blets are good and do not slip. They put the door latch in park allowing the tape to be inserted or removed.

Try to treat the belts with rejuvenator CaiKleen™ RBR Let them sit a while to get rejuvenated enough to not slip and the problem should be solved.

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.

Valco Tri Mode Stroller - car seat adaptor


the car seat goes in so that the baby is facing you if you are pushing. the bar on the adapter goes into the two plastic pieces sticking out of the back of the car seat. the red hook in the graco seat will latch on. it is confusing because the baby is seemingly far from the person pushing.
