Never submerge the straps fully in water - it can damage the webbing so that they're not as strong and safe.
I don't have that seat, so I can't tell you how to remove them, but car seat harnesses should only ever be cleaned with a damp cloth.

Need to remove the cover from a britax eclipse si..how


Press and hold down the harness release button. With your other hand below the chest pads, pull the shoulder straps forward as far as possible. With the Eclipse Si fully reclined, open the seat-belt guard at the back of the shell. Pull the yoke out from behind the seat and unhook both shoulder straps. Pull the cover from the top of the seat so that you can see the slots in the seat shell. Pull each shoulder strap and chest pad strap forward and towards the centre of the shell, easing the metal tab and straps through the slot. Then thread them through to the front of the cover. Unfasten the buckle and remove the comfort pad. Gently pull the cover off the seat, easing the shoulder straps, chest pads, harness buckle and adjuster strap through the slots in the cover.

I want to wash my covers to my maxi cosi car seat ive manged to take the cover off but im stuck on how to get the cover away from the straps


Found this solution on this website, and works great!

What seems to be a sewn-up loop, is actually easy to unattach, but the trick is not explained in the manual.

Where the end of the strap seems to be holding to the seat's plastic shell, the plastic is not completely connected, there is a break in the plastic. Just move the strap left/right a bit and you will see that you can unattach it there. Then you can unthread the loose end of the strap and completely remove the cover.

Hello, Have used Nania Newfix Solo child seat very satisfacorily for 3 years with harness. Now time to remove harness (leaving back of Childseat in place). Have removed harness as per instructions -...


Right,
After several months of struggle to find written instructions how to attach the central harness adjustment strap (The one with metal anchor at the end) to the red clip (buckle) strap as seems to be shown in instructions. budyn71.jpg
I have found number to temtex uk company that supplies nania products to argos on 01162844910, while emailing them on sales@teamtexuk.com had no result. There's no need to attach the two. Central harness adjuster strap has to be detached and pulled by it's front end as far as it goes. budyn71_0.jpg
While red clip strap threads through the gap between backrest and the base. budyn71_1.jpg
And red clip strap threads through hole (bracket) at the back of the base. budyn71_2.jpg

Can't take off maxi cosi carseat cover, because grey strap at the bottom doesn't come loose.


Slack off the straps as far as possible and recline the seat. Open the strap guard door on the rear of the bit of the seat that reclines (Item 3 on diagram http://www.maxi-cosi.com/media/producthandleidingen/maxicosi/PrioriFix.pdf). The shoulder straps can be released from the metal clasp which is in here.You can now pull the straps through the back of the seatand release the cover.

I am having trouble adjusting shoulder straps


Funny, I was just putting this seat back together after taking it apart to wash it. It is a very difficult process, simply because you have to remember which order to loop the buckles through the stap.

First, I assume you want to switch from the lower holes for the shoulder, to the upper. (If not, then there is no adjustment needed. Unless the strap is caught in the back which will make the straps uneven when you go to tighten them. This has happened to me).

So, first you need to remove the straps. Once the seat is removed from the car, look at the back of the seat and you will see a metal bracket that is holding three straps. The bottom strap is not removable from that bracket. The top two strap are attached to the bracket with loops. Remove the straps by sliding them out (edge of the strap has to come out the hole first, then the rest will slide out very easily), Once out, from the front of the seat, pull the strap through the holes

At this point you must decide whether you simply want to adjust the seat, or wash it too. I highly suggest washing it if you haven't done so recently. If you gone this far, go all the way. But since you only asked to adjust it, and the method for removing the cover is much more complicated, we''ll move on to adjusting

Now that you have the straps pulled through, be sure that the straps are not twisted, and simply push them through the desired holes - upper or lower - and reconnect to the loops brace (remember, edge in first).

If you are having problems with the straps not being even when tightened (one side tight on shoulder, other side loose), remove the seat and look to see if the strap is caught on something.

I'm retiring my seat today after six years and two kids. I could use it up to 80lbs, but it makes it difficult to get to the third row of seats in my car. So now we have two no-back boosters.

I need help putting my childs care seat back together


Bring the straps up through the holes on the bottom of the seat, one on each side. The metal plate on the end should pull in flat and snug against the plastic. Slide the buckle pieces back on, making sure they're facing the right direction to snap in. Slide the chest clip back onto both straps. Place the ends of the straps through the slots you want the harness at (at or below the child's shoulders for rear-facing, at or above the shoulder's for forward facing), making sure that they don't twist. Pull them down low behind the seat. The adjuster part of the strap has a kind of Y shaped metal plate - pull it up to meet the ends of your straps, making sure that it doesn't twist, either. There are loops at the end of the harness straps. Feed the curved part of the Y through the loop of the strap that's on the same side of the seat. Pull it all the way through, so that the fatter part on the ends of the metal plate are exposed and curve around a bit beyond the strap so that it doesn't slip back off. Do the same with the other side. Now adjust the harness to fit your child. When it's tightened properly, you should not be able to pinch up any slack, lengthwise, at the hips or shoulders, and it should lie in a straight line down the front, with no drooping. Also adjust the chest clip - it should lie even with your child's armpits - not up in the neck, and not over the belly, where it can't do it's job properly. (It's job is to hold the straps over the center of the shoulders...if it's over the belly, they're likely to slip down off of the shoulders in an accident or sudden stop and also poses the danger of internal injuries.) If you also took the **** buckle out, it goes back in from the top. Turn it so that you can slip the metal plate through the slot, slide it through, and then pull the plate flat underneath, so that it can't come back through. One other thing - car seat harnesses should never be submerged in water, as it can damage and weaken the webbing. They should only cleaned with a damp rag. If you put your harness in water when you washed the rest of the seat, I'd strongly recommend contacting Cosco (contact info here) to order a replacement harness.

Britax Roundabout car seat thigh strap adjustments


Carseats werent made for all the extra stuff we have to put on our kids. So will have to take your little one in and out of the snow siut in the car. I have an auto start button on my keys so I can warm the car before we go out there, so I can take my little one out of his warm wear in the car. Its just a headache putting them back in it once you get to your destination.

Adjusting the straps so that it will not be so tight when my infant has her coat on


I maybe able to help as I am in the process of installing this seat for the first time and was encountering the same problem of pulling the release handle and no extra strap coming out.

It has to do with the the splitter piece that holds the two straps together at the back of the unit. If it is too far down the back, it gets caught underneath and no matter how hard you pull on the release strap the splitter piece gets caught underneath which does not let extra strap come out.

The only Solution I have figured out so far is to pull the straps from the back out and down while holding down the release to make sure the splitter piece doesn't get caught.

Can't remove carseat cover


There is a trick to this. All the straps are kinda connected together. The main harness is one piece, a clever clip on each of the lap section. (one on each side) needs to be removed to allow the belt to slide through the seat and cover openings. Once here the strap needs to go through the actual seatbelt buckle. Once the buckles are off you can pull the harness through the shoulder opening. The note to take here is that the harness runs through a loop on the adjuster belt (a narrower belt that runs from the back of the chair under the it to and through the adjusting fastener) Once through the loop you can pull the main harness strap free from the chair. Now the next part, depress the release clip of the adjuster and with the other hand pull this belt free from adjuster. It may require a bit of two handed work as belt nears the end. You should now have a wide belt, a narrow belt, 2x clips and 2x harness buckles. All you need to do now is remove the adjuster which usually requires the manipulation of a metal 'B' buckle which is sewn into the loop to be twisted sideways to allow it to pass through the opening. You are home free now. The cover should be elasticated around the edging and easily removed for washing.(you can also put the straps in too) Now is also a good time to just give the actual seat a good clean too. Refitting is reversal of removal. However REMEMBER and NOTE the way clips,buckles and which openings the straps went through when removing. There are usually a couple. Mark the items with a marker if you think you'll forget. On refitting you might want to put it to the next one up. (as a child grows ie. the shoulder straps should be above the shoulders when the child is seated, equally important is they must be the same on both sides.) I think there might be a couple of slots for the adjuster strap. You might want to move that one out too. Have your child seated in the chair before you start the reassembly and mark out the openings the staps need to pass through which would be most comfortable for the him/her. Good Luck.
