The carseat has obviously not been correctly installed using the seatbelt as it cannot be removed without undoing the seatbelt if it has been correctly installed. Contact your retailer for a demonstration on correct fitting.
Hi Normally it's not reccomandable to remove the base ... It's build to last forever and keep the seat sturdy in it's place. This construction gives you the option to change the position into 5 different angles for sitting, resting and sleeping. Just when you want to install the seat or put it into it's "sleeping position" just lift the recline handle under the seat shell and pull it. This way you'll have more space to get the seat-belts through. http://images.owneriq.net/download/images/7/73cb1008-15f7-452b-8191-2a676308c9fb-000001.png Hope this answers your question. Kind regards
Identify the parts. A car seat will likely come with two parts - the base and the actual cradle itself. The base part is what will actually be in the car, while the baby cradle (seat) is removable and portable - the baby cradle can be taken out of the car and easily attaches to most grocery carts (the front part where bigger kids sit) and restaurant high chairs (move the standard restaurant high chair upside down and you will have yourself a cradle holder).
Give it a try. Place the booster flat on the backseat of your car and run the seat belt around it to hold it down - read your instructions and they will have detailed graphs on how the seat belt hurts. Also look at your car manual as they will have special instructions and buckles for car seats
Get confirmation. Move your baby seat cradle on top of the base (remember, it always faces the rear, when your child is old enough you will have to buy a different type of car seat that faces forward towards you). With your hand, sternly move your baby car seat from side to side, if the cradle is easily swaying your car booster is not securely fastened. Remove the cradle and pull the car seat belt as snug as you can and try again
Get double confirmation. Call your local fire department and make an appointment to stop by - they will check and confirm your car seat is installed securely. Remember, this could save your child's life so 10 minutes with your local fire department is only a very small inconvenience!
If the base was installed by someone who put their body weight on it to get it really tight, try to do the following:
If you are able, climb in the car and place your knee in the center of the seat base and put your weight onto it. Then, at the same time, try to pinch the clip end of the latch belt (the strap part that is attached to the car seat base) and push the clip away from you (toward the seat) to remove it from the metal latch loop/ring (the part of the latch system that's actually part of your car).
If this doesn't work, you can try to loosen the strap a little while leaning on the base, and then try to push the clip forward and out of the latch ring.
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.
I still had my manual and it said to unscrew the back; and you do have to take out the top of the straps to get the pad off. I just did this last weekend and then re-install everything. It worked great! The only problem I found was that when the pad is washed, the pad backing gets caught in the velcro and needs to be removed.
Hope that helps!
