    Do you mean that you can pull the top of the carseat towards the seat back of the seat that it's in?

    That's rebounding, and most rearfacing seats are supposed to do so. In a frontal collision (usually the most severe type of crash), the momentum causes everything to move forward until most of the crash energy is absorbed, and then, to a lesser extent, everything is jerked backwards. A rear facing seat that can rebound stays with your baby, cradling his/her body for both motions instead of just the forward motion.



    As long as your seat doesn't move more than 1 inch from side to side at the seat belt path and it is installed at the correct angle, you're in good shape.

Depending on your seatbelts, you have to lean your body weight onto the car seat to make it tight.

I have a 2006 Nissan Frontier and wanted to know how to turn off the passenger front airbag. I have a four year old and need to put a car seat in the passenger side?


You cannot turn airbag off. Options, face child seat backwards or put carseat in rear seat. Sorry, I don't have a better answer for you.

Can i place the car seat facing front?


Hi - If it is an infant carrier Group 0+ carseat it must never be installed facing forwards. It is designed as a rear facing carseat to keep your child safe in the event of an accident. Always install a carseat according to the instructions.

How do you fit the ventura plus car seat onto the silver cross 3d pram?


Hi,

This is a little difficult to explain in text, but here goes..

Recline the seat unit to it's lowest position.
On the arm rests of the pram, there is a piece of fabric covering each arm, these are attached via press studs, undo these and fold them backwards onto the seat area.
This will reveal a plastic hook underneath, these are folded down and need to be raised upwards.
Next, get the Ventura carseat and ensure that the handle is in the carrying postition (i.e facing upwards). On the base of the carseat at the back (directly underneath babys head) there is a distinct cut out shape that will fit snugly onto the bumper bar of the pram, place the carseat on top of the pram (so it is positioned on the seat facing you) and push it down gently. If this is the first time that you have done this, the material may be quite plumped up so you may need to push a little harder.
At the base of the carseat handle either side, there is a button (this is used to adjust the handle position) push these buttons down at the same time and move the handle backwards (away from you) until the handle makes an audible 'click', this means that this has now secured onto the plastic hooks that you first exposed on the arms of the pram.

This should now be securely fastened onto the pram.
I would also suggest that you visit this website as per the link below and download the user manual for the 3D so that you have this is picture format in front of you.

Fixing maxicosi seat to base


Hi,

If you have a Cabrio Fix carseat, underneath the carseat should be two silver metal bars that slot into the base, if these are not on the carseat then you have the Cabrio model which is not compatible with the base.

I hope this helps.

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!

We're having trouble installing the Embrace Infant Car Seat 5391732 - Evenflo Eurotrek Travel System into our Audi sedan. Although we double belted it at the foot end, the base seems to just rock back and...


I had the same problem in my 240sx Nissan, I was told that because of the dip in the seat it was impossible to fasten it down properly so I went to one of those help for car seat classes that the police help you with and they told me just to take a towel and tightly roll it up and put in the dip of the seat, then fasten the base down! Hope this helps you!

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.
