Question about Britax Eclipse Si - Paris Convertible Car Seat

1 Answer

I can't fit my car seat rear facing

This seems like you have to post the baby into the car seat as the seat belt leaves little room between the roof of the car to get the baby in? Rear facing seems quite strange according to the instructions? can you recommend a website with picutres or just really good instructions.

I am not from the U.K. but from personal experience Canada, you can go to your local police department or health unit if you have them there. there is a possibility that the fire dept lads will show you the best way to put the seat in as well.

you could also try here http://www.britax.com/ i did choose the uk site and it's down. be that as it may you can contact them regarding instructions as well.

I have been given a baby go 7 car seat I need it to be rear facing the sticker says forward facing?


There are forward and rear facing baby car seats , the rear facing are the safest , they are not interchangeable , the seats must be fitted to the rear car seat and only to the approved mountings.

Car seat in Rear Facing Position takes up too much room in our car. Any suggestions.


We have 6 car seats for our 3 children; one in each vehicle. I moved the seats around so all three can fit in our CRV; however, if I would not have swapped the carseats, all three would not have fit in the CRV. In other words, be creative. When your child is old enough/big enough for a booster seat, those are smaller. I think I waited until my child was at least 3 for a booster, but they are worth the $30-$60 to save the room you need in the car if your child is big enough.

My rear facing infant car seat tips over. My car is a 2000 Toyota Camry without the lower latch in the seat. The seat belt gives a little but locks in an emergency. The baby is not yet 20 lbs.


if it is an infant seat with a base, and can be used without the base, I suggest using it that way. We had the same problem with our daughter's car seat. sometimes those bases just aren't stable enough. Sits much more secure if you can use it without them.

How to loosen the straps on envenflo tribute carseat?


This is about all I could find for you. Hope it helps.
Had one - its a huge pain in the **** and I always busted my fingernails doing it. The metal clips have to slide over the bumps to get them out. I hated that thing. May I make a suggestion? Return it. lol . I'm figuring you got a combo seat - Evenflo Generations, Bolero, Chase, that is a forward facing only seat to 40lbs, or a convertible seat like Evenflo Tribute that is forward facing to 40lbs. Since I don't know her age its hard to make a suggestion, but for just a little more money (we paid $79 for our Chase) you could get a much better seat. If she needs a convertible that will rear face, get the Evenflo Triumph for $150 or less, The Evenflo Triumph Advance (not the original Triumph, make sure it says Advance) is a great seat. $150 version at Babies R Us has padding similar to Britax seats, top slots of 17", harnesses to 35lbs rear facing, and 50lbs forward facing. $120 Walmart version just has little less plush padding. Wide open belt path, easy to install, though it doesn't have built in lockoffs. The harness adjusts at the front of the car seat, you don't have to take the car seat out of the car just to raise/lower the straps. It's one of only 2 seats that does this (The Britax Boulevard is the other, I believE), and it has infinite harness adjustment so the harness always fits perfectly until its outgrown. No more tugging straps to tighten them either. You tighten and loosen the harness using knobs on the side of the seat. As a major bonus, it can be used in a recline position even in forward facing mode. Awesome for kids who still sleep in the car. I LOVE THIS SEAT! LOL My son, who is too big for every other car seat at Walmart has the same amount of room in this as the Britax Marathon.

If she is forward facing (over 30lbs and over 2years old) then a Graco Nautilus would be a lot easier to use and install, $150. Harnesses to 65lbs and then becomes a booster, will be the last seat you have to buy her. Metal reinforced.

Combo seats are usually a major waste of money, as they only harness to 40lbs, no more than most convertible car seats, so you're really not getting any more use out them then the convertible seat.

Types of car safety seats at a glance
The chart below is a quick guide on where to start your search. However, it’s important to read more about the features and how to use your car safety seat.
Age Type of Seat General Guideline Infants Infant seats and rear-facing convertible seats All infants should always ride rear-facing until they are at least 1 year of age and weigh at least 20 pounds. Toddlers/Preschoolers Convertible seats It is best to ride rear-facing as long as possible. Children 1 year of age and at least 20 pounds can ride forward-facing. School-aged children Booster seats Booster seats are for older children who have outgrown their forward-facing car safety seats.

Older children Seat belts Children who have outgrown their booster seats should ride in a lap and shoulder belt in the back seat until 13 years of age.
