I purchased cosco car seat model #22491-AOL and there are no straps/ harness. Am I just suppose to use my car seat belts to restrain the car seat. It does have plastic under head piece to put I guess car...

Yes, this car seat is a booster seat rather then a harnessed car seat.

The requirements are 30-100lbs and 34" to 57".

It's generally recommended that boosters are not used until 5-6 years old when the child is able to sit in proper position in the car on both long and short trips after they have outgrown their harnessed seat.

I dissasembled the car seat so I need get manual in order to re-assebly the belts in the correct way , can you help me

I just noticed my car seat had a safety recall back in 2007 and noticed you had the same recall on the 22150. I just ordered a new kit from Cosco (which was free) to replace the faulty parts. Here's the recall notice ans website to go to:
Click on "Harness Adjustment Strap Inspection" and give your info. to order the kit.

Dorel Juvenile Group Announces a Voluntary Safety Recall of the Harness Adjustment ******** Certain Cosco®, Safety 1st® and Eddie Bauer® Brand Child Restraint Systems
Columbus, IN August 30, 2007- Dorel Juvenile Group (DJG) is issuing a voluntary safety recall for certain Cosco®, Safety 1st® and Eddie Bauer® brand child restraint systems manufactured during November 2003 through December 2005. Although no injuries have been reported, there is a potential for the harness adjustment strap to loosen during use. If this were to occur, the harness may be loose around the child, possibly increasing the risk of injury in a crash. We feel that it is important to replace the harness adjustment strap.

Model numbers affected are:
Cosco®: Alpha Omega®, Alpha Omega EliteTM: 22150, 22155, 22180, 22269; Eddie Bauer®: 3-in-1, Deluxe 3-in-1, Deluxe Convertible: 22740, 22750, 22755, 22756, 22757, 22770; Safety 1st® : Alpha EliteTM, Alpha Omega®, Alpha Omega EliteTM, Alpha SportTM, InteraTM, EnspiraTM: 22151, 22450, 22451, 22452, 22453, 22455, 22460, 22480, 22481

The model number and date of manufacture may be found on a sticker located on the side or back of the child restraint system.

DJG will contact all registered owners and provide them with information on how to obtain a free repair kit to replace the harness adjustment strap. Those consumers who have not registered their product should visit or call 800-219-0509 to order a free repair kit. The affected seats should not be returned to the retailer.

DJG encourages parents to obtain and install the repair kit as soon as possible. Parents may continue to use the child restraint system as directed in their instruction manual. Parents should be sure to adjust the harness adjuster strap snugly each time they put their child in the child restraint system. If there is any difficulty adjusting the harness adjustment strap, or it does not remain tight, DJG suggests using a different child restraint system until the repair kit has been installed.

To check for harness slippage:
(1) Fully tighten the harness, (2) pull on the harness straps without pressing or lifting the harness adjustment lever. If movement occurs, the harness is experiencing slippage.

Converting to a booster do i remove the base

The base is what makes it a booster seat. Some seats the back is removed but if yours is the one in the picture, it looks like you have a belt positioning booster seat (much better than a regular booster). You would remove the harness straps completely and place the automobile's seatbelt through the appropriate slots on the side of the carseat up by the shoulder/head and feed it across your child rather than through the seat. For best use, look in your owner's manual for instructions. If you no longer have it, generally you can download one on-line from the manufacturer at no charge.

Minimum Child weight for booster

Most seat-belt positioning boosters require the child to be at least 30 pounds. Many states say 4 years old and 40 pounds is the minimum.

Maturity is by far the most important thing, though. The child isn't ready to be in a seat-belt only booster until he can be trusted to sit up with his back straight and his bottom back ALL the time - if he moves around, the seat belt will not stay in a proper, safe place.

A seat with a 5 point harness is infinitely safer - in an accident, a child in a seat-belt positioning booster can be thrown forward and around the safety wings of a high back booster or, with a low back booster, be thrown into the sides/seats of the car - both substantially increase the risk of head injury. They can also slip down under the seat belt (called submarining), which can cause major internal injuries.

If you are determined to make the move to a seat-belt positioning seat, though, here's my thoughts on the two we've tried. The Graco Turbobooster is very popular with our friends, is inexpensive, easy to use, etc. Personally, we prefer the Compass B-510. It is more expensive, but it seems a LOT sturdier and has a bigger, nicer headrest/side wings with EPS foam for side-impact protection. The arm rests also flip up, to make it easier for the kid to get in and out and to do the seat belt. It comes in lots of great patterns, oldest son adored his camo print booster and rode in it with no fuss until after he turned 9. He says it is WAY more cushioned and comfortable than the turboboosters.

If I can talk you into staying in a harnessed seat =) .... Most of the less expensive 5 point boosters only harness to 40 pounds, but Graco recently put out the Nautilus, which harnesses to 65 pounds and then converts to a belt positioning booster, so you can get years of use out of it. It's considerably less expensive than most of the other higher harness weight seats (i.e. Britax Regent, Sunshine Kids Radian) - we actually own all three of those varieties, and I like the Nautilus just as much as the Regent and MORE than the Radian.
Another less expensive higher harness weight seat is the Apex 65, but it requires the seat of the CAR to be at least as tall as the child's ears...when the child's ears reach the car's seat back, it's outgrown, because it's headrest isn't reinforced like the others are. Unless you have really tall seat backs, it won't last you nearly as long as the others. It also is supposed to turn into a belt-positioning booster, but I've heard from numerous people that it's really no good as a belt positioning only seat.

Missing harness

For the first one you can go to this link and download the instructions, which at the end will have a parts order list, from which you can order the latch parts and the harness for the second one from there as well. you will need the model number and manufacture date on both to obtain this info and those numbers should be on the back of the seats it appears that all three are cosco car seats and you can obtain the needed parts and manuals needed.

although i will add this disclaimer, i would never never trust a car seat from a rummage sale, because you can not trust the person selling to be honest with you as to whether it was in an accident or not, if it was it may look fine, but it could have small stress fractures invisible to the human eye that could make it fail in an accident, killing or severely injuring your grandchild

also if the child is 5yrs old my better question for you would be is he over 38" tall and over 40lbs??? If so he really is to big for these car seats, you can get a booster seat for him, which would run you from 10 - 50 dollars depending on model, all of which are very safe just make sure if you do not have a head rest in the car where you will be using it, as most cars to not have these in the back seat that you get a high back booster seat (i know the first of the three list in your query works as one of these with out the harness the shoulder strap merely gets fed through the slots on the side of the seat above the child's shoulder to ensure proper alignment
if you do have the head rest you can get by with a backless one as the head rest will provide the necessary head and neck support in an accident.

I would not stake any child's life on a used seat unless from a very very trusted source

If you washed the straps, they will need to be replaced. Lock the harness together, to prevent the straps from being twisted. Feed the top part of the harness through the slots that are AT or ABOVE your hangchilds shoulder if the seat is forward facing. IF the seat is for rearfacing, feed the top part of the harness straps through the shoulder slots at or BELOW the child's shoulder. Once each is through, reach down and attach them to the silver plate that hangs from the **** strap adjuster. Once you silde each of the harness straps, then slide the bottom of the through the hole in the cover, then into the base of the seat, folding the top like a triangle makes it easier to get through the tight holes. Repeat on the other side and you are ready to travel! Thanks!
