*To convert the car seat into a booster seat, turn the car seat over and remove the pin that holds the base in place. tHEN REMOVE THE BELTS AND THE BUCKLE.
*To remove you need to bend/twist the keeper until you can push it UP through the seat and remove the belt/strap. It is now a booster seat for use with a lap/shoulder belt in the car. Store all the parts you removed in a ziploc bag for when your child outgrows it so it can be reused
Remove the large bar holding the bottom plate. One side will have a plastic retainer which you just move to the side and pull the barr all the way out from that side. There is a rear leg that you can pull down and back which will make the seat sit more upright. Remove the strap (it is one solid strap) and be sure to save all the parts if you plan on giving it to a needy family when your child outgrows it. The center clip is easy to remove, turn the seat upside down and find the metal retainer and pull it up, turn 90 degrees and feed it through the hole and pull on the other side. Now you should have a strap/clip free seat that will be a "seatbelt positioning booster seat".
Take the base off if it has one, either clips, screws, or a metal rod holding it on. Take the belts out. They should slide off the clip at the back of the seat, then unthread belts from buckles. The buckle/strap between the legs usually has a metal keeper below the seat. To remove you need to bend/twist the keeper until you can push it UP through the seat and remove the belt/strap. It is now a booster seat for use with a lap/shoulder belt in the car. Store all the parts you removed in a ziploc bag for when your child outgrows it so it can be reused.
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.
Yes, Im sure you can find it in a department store or online store. Try target.com probably, they are called extension strap like this
