Question about Graco ComfortSport 8639 - Grey

Harness is broken

I put my 1yr old in a graco comfortsport and found that the harness tightening belt has come loose. You can pull the straps loose without lifting up on the gray colored loosening strap. If you pull on the shoulder straps, they come completely out from the back of the seat. If the car was in an accident, the baby would not be held into the seat at all. Can this be fixed?

Here is the link for the user instructions for your model; Check page 19 (page 21 of the pdf file) and look at the locking clips in figure c - these may be missing or incorrect. You can buy replacements or any other parts on this link; Hope this helps - contact Graco or post here again if you have any more questions :)

I washed my daughters graco car seat and now i havent a clue of how to put it back together and i need re assemble it fast please help

Proper installation of a car seat is imperative to protectan infant. Accidents do happen and assuring that the instructions forinstallation of the Graco Infant Restraint/Carrier are followed will increasethe chances of preventing injury or death as a result of an accident. Graco carseats are a popular choice among parents due the availability of products atcommon retail stores, affordability and user-friendly baby gear.Graco Car SeatInstallation
Step 1
Plan to secure the infant seat facing the rear inthe middle of the back seat. If a center position is not available, positionthe seat directly behind the driver's side seat. For safety reasons, therestraint should not be placed in a position where there is an air bag. Ensurethat the proper vehicle lap belt system is in place; manually adjusted lapbelts, automatic locking retractor lap belts and lap/shoulder belts withlocking latch plates are all considered safe for use with the Graco InfantCarrier/Restraint.Step 2
Remove the carrier from the Graco car seat baseby squeezing the lever at the rear of the restraint and lifting the seat up.Place the base in the vehicle facing the rear. Thread the vehicle shoulder andlap belts through openings at the end of the base without twisting the belts.Secure the belts by placing plastic tongue over the belts. Tighten the vehiclebelts by pushing down on the base and pulling out any slack.Step 3Install locking clip to secure shoulder and lapbelt together just above the seat belt buckle. Connect the two belts with thelocking clip. Buckle the lap belt system and tighten by pulling out any slack.Ensure that car seat base is secure by pulling and pushing on it; the baseshould not move sideways, forward or backward.Step 4
Place the Graco carrier in the base. Push down onthe restraint until it clicks and locks into the base. Set the infant in therestraint for travel and place harness straps over the baby's shoulders. Clickthe chest place together over the sternum and lock the buckles into placebetween the legs.Tipsand Warnings
  • Contact local police departments, hospitals and fire departments to inquire about child car seat safety checks
  • Graco Infant Restraint/Carrier will not protect against serious injury or death if not installed properly. Always read the Graco owner's manual that comes with product prior to attempting installation and travel with an infant.

How do i install a forward facing carseat

You have two options with this depending on child size. The most common is through the slots in the back behind the cover then tightened. The other option with larger kids or for quick removal is to strap it over the the lap of the carseat.

We took it apart to clean it and are unable to reassemble the harness. How do the straps go and where do the metal peices fit?

I went to the Graco website and got stuck when it didn't recognize the number 8639.
Here is a link to their product instructions web page. You might need to get some information from the car seat. I hope this helps... Good luck!

Yeah its a bit tricky. ON the fron of the car seat there is a strap that goes intot he seat and has a button to lossen it. Press it down to lossen that strap then flip seat over and on the bottom you will find other end of the same strap and it has a brass t-fitting. Take it and pull it up the back side of seat and the shoulder straps fit into the brass fitting then tighten by pulling strap in front of chair.

Car seat straps

I have the same problem with mine. It's an easy fix. Unlock the straps (pull the little gray release tab) and then pull firmly upward on the lap belt opposite the loose strap. To reword: If your left shoulder strap is the loose one, go the right side of the seat, where the LAP belt comes out of the seat, and pull firmly upward on that part of the belt. It will pull the slack out from the other side. I hope that was helpful.

Shoulder straps

There should be metal hooks on the backside that hook onto the loops at the end of the shoulder straps. They will definately be metal so should be easy to spot against the plastic back of the car seat. They usually are sort of rectangular and have one side that has a 'lip' so the straps aren't supposed to just slip off. (Though I can imagine the possiblity of this when the belt is not stretched as it is during use) Refer to your manual if you cannot find them. If you no longer have the manual, you should be able to locate one for downloading or viewing PDF file at the manufacturers website. Hope this helps! :)
