Rear Facing UAS strap can't feed through?

I am trying to install two of these car seats for my twins, and I need it rear facing - however, the UAS strap seems to be attached inside near the top (in between the padding and the shell) by a bolt. I can't find ANYWHERE in the manual that talks about this. It doesn't seem to slide through the rear facing slot near the bottom front with this strap still attached at the top and allow for adjustments. Can anyone help? Do you know what I mean? It's on both of the one I purshased.

She's def looking at the UAS/LATCH strap... mine is the exact same way and I'm also trying to figure out how to unbolt it from the back.

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.

Combi instruction


It depends on your car seat. Follow your instruction manual for your child seat and your car. Not all seating positions have tether anchors.
"Rear-facing only" seats do not tether (these have a separate base and carrier)
"Rear-facing convertible" seats may tether.
"Forward-facing" seats usually tether (some MUST tether).

How do you install and know if its reclined. my son seems to be sitting too upright, he is only 6 months but already 21 pounds. he is appropriate weight wise. I have a 2006 explorer.


u could use the safety straps on the back. or you could run the seatbelt through the holes at the bottom of the car seat. check your users manual from your explorer to see where the safety hooks are. http://www.eddiebauer.djgusa.com/usa/eng/Instructions?ProductNumber=22790WPR

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.

I haven't seen a video for it, but I'll try to explain it clearly. To install it with the LATCH system, locate the anchors in your car - U shaped metal anchors in the seat, where the back meets the bench part. See your car's owner's manual - many cars don't have LATCH in the middle of the back seat, so you'll have to install it in a side seat or use the seatbelt to install, instead. Recline the carseat all the way - there is a handle under the harness adjuster on the front of the seat. Pull the handle while pushing back on the top of the seat. Tuck the top tether strap under and hook it under the base or the seat - it's only used when forward facing and is dangerous if left flapping. Pull the seat cover off of the front corners of the seat. Thread the black latch belt through the rear facing belt path (the holes on the bottom front of the seat - there should be a sticker identifying the path), making sure that it does not twist and is behind, not over or in front of, the **** strap, but in front of the the slots that the bottom of the harness straps go through. Replace the seat cover. Put the carseat where you want it in the car. Look to see that the level lines on the shoulder belt positioning guide are level with the ground. Double check that the top tether is secured underneath the seat. Fasten one latch hook to the anchor in your seat, going from above the anchor, so that the clip part of the hook is on the bottom and the solid side is on top. Repeat on the other side. Kneel in the car seat to push it firmly into the seat while pulling the strap tight through the adjuster. The seat is installed tight enough when you can grab it at the belt path and can not move it more than 1 inch side to side. It is normal to be able to pull the top of the seat towards your car's seat back some. To install it with a seatbelt - (Please note - you can only install with the LATCH system OR the seatbelt - doing both together increases the stress and force on the seat and can damage it!) Recline the seat and secure the top tether as above. Place the seat in the car and make sure that the level lines are level with the ground, as above. Thread the seat belt through the rear facing belt path (again, the holes on the bottom front of the seat...look for the sticker). Thread it under the seat pad. Like above, it should go between the bottom slots for the harness and the **** strap. Buckle the seat belt. Kneel in the seat, pull the seat belt all the way out from it's feeder, and feed it back in, pulling it as tight as you can. Check for tightness as above. While your child is rear-facing, the harness should be in a slot that is even with or below his shoulders. Pull it snug - when it's tight enough, you shouldn't be able to pinch up any slack lengthwise at the shoulders or hips and it should lay in a straight line without any sagging. Make sure the chest clip is even with the baby's armpits, not over the neck or the belly. Good luck!

Rear facing latch problem


I had trouble getting mine tight too and my sister said what she did was kneel in the seat and then pull up on the strap. I tried that and it worked! I think it pushes the seat down more so that you have more strap to pull.

Rear seat single latch


The latch that is on the top is called the tether strap. It is only used in the forward facing position.

Rear Facing Installation


That is the common installation process for a convertible carseat in rear-facing position. It is important that the shoulder/lap seatbelt be as tight as possible. This can best be achieved by putting as much of your own weight as possible on the carseat (without the baby of course), clicking into the seatbelt fastener and then pulling as much slack as possible out of the seatbelt strap. If you have the assistance of another adult, one should provide the weight on the carseat from inside the vehicle while the other pulls on the seatbelt strap from outside to remove as much slack as possible. If you have an I-shaped locking bracket, it should be installed over both straps 1 inch from the seatbelt fastener.

Some, but not all, manufacturers provide a metal locking bracket to be placed on the seat belt after the carseat is installed to prevent excessive slippage. You could contact your manufacturer to see if one should have been provided or you may purchase one at most major baby product retailers.

Be aware, a little movement of the installed carseat is considered normal and acceptable.

One last note, many fire stations, police stations, children's hospitals and even car dealerships offer free carseat safety checks. Call those in your area and ask if they offer this service.
