Question about Britax Roundabout

1 Answer

Can't Install I have a 2004 Honda Accord and need to install the seat rear-facing as my child is 10 months old and 20lbs. When I use the latch system as described in the manual, and have the seat tilted to the correct angle, the seat does not fit snugly - you can take the back of it and tilt the seat forward. I have tried a rolled up towel in the crease of the car and have tried adjusting the angle of the car seat itself with no luck. We do not have a tether anchor on the floor of the car but if so that may work. This a such a popular car model, is there something I am doing wrong as I find it hard to believe the seat will not fit properly. When installed facing forward, it's perfect. Please help!

You definately should get the rear tether connector to get this car seat in snug. It is the best way and designed to be used rear facing withthe Roundabout. Click the link (or cut and paste into your browser) below to see what I am referring to. When you get it you should connect it to the passenger seat belt track as that is connected to the frame of the car.

How do I install an infant carseat in the 2004 mazda mpv


Is it a LATCH type seat? The best location is the middle row. There is an anchor in the rear bottom where you can clip the tether. The rest of the seat is secured by threading the warbler through the rear of the child seat.

I have a new graco cleo car seat. What weight and age does my baby have to be before I shoud face it forward in the car?


Group 0 Until the age of 12 months (13kg/28lbs), your child must always be in a rear-facing position. Group 0+ car seats move from a reclined to a seated position, whilst perfectly supporting your child's back.
Group 0+ Until the age of 12 months (13kg/28lbs), your child must always be in a rear-facing position. Group 0+ car seats move from a reclined to a seated position, while perfectly supporting your child's back.

Group 0+/1 Children are unique and grow at different paces so category 0+/1 seats are highly flexible to reflect this. Babies up to 9kg (19 lbs) can travel safely facing the rear. From 18kg (39lbs) the seat can be adjusted so they face forward, allowing you to spend more time face-to-face with your baby which is an important part of parent-child bonding.
return to top
Group 1/2/3 The car seats in this category grow with your child from 9 months to 12-years old (9-36kg/19-79 lbs) so they can remain comfortable and importantly, develop properly. This flexibility makes it the ideal car seat category for large families and grandparents with grandchildren of different ages.

Group 2/3 A child must have a car seat that is tailored to their weight, height and age until they are 12 years-old, or 36kg (79lbs). The group 2/3 category offers convertible seats for older children aged between 4 and 12 (15-36kg/33-79lbs), this means the car seat grows with your child.


Hope this helps, I have a graco for my 12 week old, this info is from the graco website

How do you remove the rear seat of 2004 honda accord


Release the two latches at the front of the seat cushion (pull back on the latches to release the front of the cushion).

Remove the seat cushion bolt and remove the cushion (it’s roughly in the center. You have to insert a socket extension between the back and bottom seat cushions to take it out, after you find it by pressuring the bottom cushion and looking back in there).

Remove the bolts (each side) securing the seat side bolsters (they are easy to see once the bottom cushion is removed), then remove the side bolters (gently release the clips that hold them in).

Pull the seat forward, then remove the fasteners securing the seat hinge (seat pivot bracket) and remove the seat backs.

Hope this helps you.

1995 Honda Accord Car seat install problem


I can't be of much help, except to indicate what Honda says about the seats, and to give you a URL to look at:
Using a Seat Belt Locking Clip
Always use a seat belt locking clip when you secure a child seat to your car with a lap/shoulder belt. This helps prevent the seat from shifting position or overturning. A locking clip is usually included with the child seat. If you need a clip, contact the seat's manufacturer or a store that sells child restraints.
The URL will take you to a more complete reference to your car manual regarding child restraints.

How do you install the car seat for rear facing?


Hey Just posting this for future reference for other people since I see that you posted over a month ago :) ..

To install the car seat in rear facing I used the latch system. (you can use the latch system if your vehicle has latches..they are tiny metal bars in between the seats)

First of all with this dumb car seat I found out that the latch system was not in the proper place so if you find that yours is not where the diagram shows (in the manual) then you'll have to take off the seat cover and manually put them in their place. Then go ahead and clip onto the latches in the rear facing position. If the car seat is too far forward then inline the seat. If the car seat is still not leaning far enough back to be level with the ground (there should be two level marks on the top/side of the car seat) place a rolled towel (or roll a 2x4 in a rolled towel like i did) then clip onto the latches. Hope this helps someone.

LATCH Attached?


The latch can be used in the rear facing position.

On mine there was a screw which secured the nylon to the seat.

You need to remove the screw and remove the LATCH belt.

The LATCH belt must then be threaded through the belt location under the child's seat, rather than behind.

Pay attention if there are any arrows on your LATCH belt which point up, so that you thread the belt the right way. Remember that the seat is going to be rear facing! : )

On the side of my seat it shows a picture with the LATCH in use, threaded underneath the child's seat. Maybe your shows this too.

Hope this works for you!

Car Seat Installation


It is safe to use, just make sure to put your knee in the seat to compress it down while tightening the seat to make sure it gets a good fit. Most CPSTs prefer the noodles b/c a towel can get compressed too much.

How old is the child? If the child is past 7-9 months and hold their body and head up well already, the seat doesn't need to be at a 45 degree angle anymore. 45 degrees is only for when they can't hold their head up yet. It prevents them from choking when their head rolls forward. Older babies won't have this problem, and often prefer to be a little less reclined. You can have it anywhere between 30-45 degrees, though you have to just eyeball it, without an exact way to measure put the child in and adjust it till he/she looks comfy.

Definitely call your police station and ask about help installing a car seat, they'll direct you to a CPST who can help you install it.

I'm I dropped my necklace inside my 2018 Camry XSE & I finally saw it today a few weeks inside the lining of the drivers seat belt buckle. Can you tell me how to retrieve my necklace? Thanks! Denise My necklace is inside the lining around the "stem?" Of the seat belt buckle down inside a hole. It's a white gold necklace but appeared to me that it's laying on top of something silver? Possibly some type of track inside the assembly. Honestly I have no idea what I'm talking about. I was excited when I saw it since it appeared as though it could be easily retrieved and it doesn't look like it's very far down inside the lining of the buckle either, so since I have tiny hands I thought I might possibly even be able to get it out with only my hand. Sadly I was mistaken. Next I took some thick, heavy craft wire; first thing I thought of bent it over & made a hook on on end? I'm no fisherman but it seemed that logically it should work? I should be able to catch the chain in the hook. With the fabric of the lining being a charcoal color, inside the lining even darker. Inside a dark car with only an over head light, trying to hold a flashlight while necklace fishing in over 100 degree temps, though I'm stubborn and didn't want to. The heat did finally convince me I had no idea what I as doing and the chances of my catching my necklace at that point much less actually reeling it in safely were probably few and far between. So I'm back to searching the internet yet again. Ha! If you're wondering why I'm going to such lengths to retrieve a necklace, I bought it the day my first grand baby was born and it has her name and birth information engraved on it. It's the sentimental value for her DeDe that makes it so special and why I want to get it back so badly. I'm very much appreciative of anything you can advise me to do to help me with this process. Thank you so much, Denise Tallant a/k/a Stella James's DeDe
