Question about Baby Gear

1 Answer

My son is too big for the harness part of his graco nautilus car seat and I want to use the seatbelt. The back tethers do not reach the tether hooks (the top one does). I currently have the seatbelt running through the back of it to help hold it. Will he be ok with out the back tethers?

I suggest you check with the supplier and ask them if this methos of attachment is OK.
Some child car seat do use the seat belt to hold the child seat in place.

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).

Please help. I have been handed down a britax ASIs car seat which has isofix. Problem is my car does not have isofix. Can I still use it? And do I need to take isofix off? Thanks


Usually the ISOFIX is simply an easier way to tether the seat to the car. Some believe it is safer than tradional tether methods.
You can simply use you car's seatbelts to hold the car seat in. The car seat has 2 large holes behind the childs lower back and that is where your car seat belts slide thru and then click into their connections.
Here is a link to Britax info on the Isofix and Isofit

I have a 1985 yamaha 80 and want to hook up tether for my son. where do i hook into


Your existing kill switch, when applied, completes a circuit to ground. The tether does the same when the tether is pulled. You can tap it into the kill switch.

Graco nautilus 3 in 1 car seat need help with strap installation


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.

HAve fun ;)

Help with install


Go here to download a copy of the manual.
The straps that are in the area where you'd thread the seatbelt to install are for LATCH installation if you have LATCH anchors in your car - but you can only use seatbelt OR LATCH to install, never both. The strap at the top, with the same hook, is the top tether.
Instructions for using both are in that copy of the manual - the installation instructions for the Regent vary depending on your child's weight, so read it carefully.

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!

Can't figure out how to attach the tether strap to my car seat. It's an Evenflo Traditions


you have to tuck the loop in through the back of the car seat from the bottom to the top and then tuck the length of the tether through the sewn loop in the tether strap. I found it helpful to have a firm, flat surface (like a butter knife or a ruler) to help guide the tether along the molded foam that is not removeable. Plan it out in advance so the hook is the right way up when you are done, to save yourself some grief.
