Question about Baby Gear

Open Question

We have recently been given a car seat for our daughter to use for her new baby,, we think the base of it is missing, is it still safe to use for the car? Is the base just used for sitting it up at home or on a chair etc? the information on the side is GB1A2 and IC-082 APF it is a 2011 model we believe it is a safety first car seat

https://plweb.evenflo.com/faq_detail.aspx?faqid=4407 the above link is for the manual but here are the instructions. If you have two plastic harness adjusters located on the back of your seat please follow the following steps: On the very bottom of your car seat locate two metal anchors one on each side of the seat, pull the metal anchors out of position and turn them sideways and feed them through to the front of the seat. Release the buckle tongues and chest clip and pull the harness straps to the back of the seat while pushing the chest clips, buckle tongues and harness anchors through to the back of the car seat. NOTE: You may find it easier by pulling down the seat pad when feeding the straps through. All pieces will fit through the harness slots. Choose the appropriate slots for the new harness position. Push the harness anchors, harness straps, buckle tongues and chest clips back through to the front of the seat. Once the straps are completely pulled back through to the front of the seat, make sure the straps are not twisted by clipping the chest clip together and buckling the buckle tongues, then feed the metal anchors through to the bottom of the seat and clip anchors back into place. ********************************************************************* If you have an adjustment strap that is located in between the child?s foot area that allows you to loosen and tighten the straps please follow the following steps: Loosen the harness straps by pressing the harness release button that is located between the child?s legs near the feet area; while pulling on the harness straps from the front of the car seat near the shoulder area. Turn the car seat around and from the back side of the seat follow the straps down to the metal splitter plate, remove the ends of both straps from the metal splitter plate. Once the straps are removed, pull both harness straps completely through to the front of the seat. Choose the appropriate slots for the new harness position and feed both straps through from the front of the seat to the back of the seat.

hi,
i just had the same problem but there seems nothing out there at all, so i had to try myself and just succeeded there.

so a little step by step guide, i hope its clear enough.

1. i found taking the whole thing apart to be the easiest way. so take it apart, you should have two long straps, two metal buckles, and two plastics things you will need at the end.

2. hang the strap with the shoulder pads around your neck, the way it would lie if around your child.

3. note two whole, one on either side of the seat, inside, near where your childs bum would be. imagine the other strap, the long one coming from there(imagine we are starting form the right here), then it goes through the right buckle.

4. next it goes through the right shoulder pad

5. now in real life it would go thorugh the back of the seat, but its easier to leave this last, in case you pull it through lopsided somewhere, so you can fix it, anyhow....

6. the long strap now goes around your neck and through the other , the left, shoulder pad,

7, then it goes through the left hand buckle

8. lastly, it WOULD go through the hole on the inside left of the seat.

before you do that thought, close the buckle and see if everything is straight

9. now pick one end of your work and pull it through one of the holes in the back of the seat, once its thorugh one hole it should go through a thinner grey strap at the back, this is for tightening the whole thing at the fornt once your child sits in the seat, once thats done pull it back out front through the other hole.

10. lastly, pull the long ends of the straps through the two inside holes either side of the seat, they should come out at the bottom, the two plastic green things are then attached to the ends. there is a right and a wrong way here, one way you can pull them in tight, the other you cant

i hope this works for you and i hope i made sense....

We have a cabriofix car seat on a family fix base (purchased new in Dec 2010). The car seat is stuck on the base. One of the clips will not release when the grey handle is pulled. Any ideas why?


Get back to where you bought it for a replacement - these things HAVE to work perfectly to keep your child safe - don't try to "fix" it you could live to regret it.

Hi we have a second hand Britax rock a tot car seat, can you please advise the age group of the infant to be able to use this car seat?


it does not go by age, it is based on height and weight.
Rock A Tot is not a recognized name on their website of current or retired models.
http://www.britaxusa.com/

It is a model from the UK-
Weight/Size Suitability
------------------------- The Rock-a-Tot is a group 0 car seat, suitable from birth up to 13kgs (around 9-12 months). It uses a three point harness. For a newborn this seat is lovely, the head hugger makes the seat very snug and secure around their head. However I did find that as my baby got older the head hugger seemed too confining and we removed it when he was about 4 months old.
The shoulder straps can be adjusted to 3 or 4 height settings allowing a good fitting as you baby grows.

Although this seat is designed to go up to 13kgs I think that most people chose to move their baby out of this seat when he/ she reaches 9kgs and put baby into to a forward facing seat. Adrian was a large baby to start with (9lb 9oz) and also long. By the time he had reached 9kg's (around 7-8 months) his legs had to be bent slightly with his feet touching the back seat which we didn't think would be very safe in an accident (as surely more pressure would be placed on his legs if the car seat moved towards the fixed seat)and he was getting rather squashed in to the seat.

My rear facing infant car seat tips over. My car is a 2000 Toyota Camry without the lower latch in the seat. The seat belt gives a little but locks in an emergency. The baby is not yet 20 lbs.


if it is an infant seat with a base, and can be used without the base, I suggest using it that way. We had the same problem with our daughter's car seat. sometimes those bases just aren't stable enough. Sits much more secure if you can use it without them.

Someone removed all harness from my Cosco, Summit car seat. I cannot figure out how to get them attached and will not do it without knowing I have done it safely. Help!


My daughter has a car seat just like this one, and I wash it about once a month so I hope I can explain this detailed. First, at the base there is a metal rod that will need removed. When you take this rod out the base and seat will seperate. Set base aside and turn seat upside down. Take your strap and put an end into each slot. Turn seat over and pull your straps even. Put the two black pieces for your latch on (one on each side) then put you chest pieces on and run straps thru slots on back of seat. Turn seat around and make sure the straps go OVER the silver bar in back (this allows you to adjust shoulder height) Secure to the metal piece that runs to front for tightening adjustment. Sey seat back on base and replace rod. Hope this was helpful.

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.

Safe Seat stuck to base


Ok. You should be able to put your weight on the base to create some slack in the strap. Then push the release buckle and alternate your weight to pull the strap and loosen. Then you'll have enough room to manipulate the improperly installed latch.
