Re: carseat straps

You can move it by pushing down on the flexible tab part of the seat base just above the box, but you don't need to move it at all in order to adjust the straps.
In order to move the straps I remove the clip side (the opposite side of the box), this removes in the same manner as the black box side, you just push down onthe flexible tab on the base; and run it through backwards, slide it into the next hole up, to make it larger run it back through the holes and click it back into the base in the back of the seat. This can all be done without disabling, The clip in the front of the seat must be unfastened but it will all fit through the holes in the seat to adjust the straps.

How to remove maxi cosi cabrio harness straps


The harness of a carseat should never be removed or replaced by anyone other than a trained engineer due to the safety implications of it being incorrectly replaced.

The carseat fabric should be removed from this carseat and they can be washed - the harness itself should be cleaned in place in the carseat using a solution of stain remover and water and a small scrubbing brush or hard scourering pad to clean the harness. Excess water in the carseat should be dried immediately and thoroughly to prevent any parts rusting. Loose crumbs can be removed using a vacuum cleaner.

Alternatively the carseat can be sent in for the engineers to replace with a new one. Inspection and single repair (replacement of the harness) plus safety checks and courier collection and repair can be booked for 39.99GBP if you're in the UK by calling 01284 413 141 Mon-Thur 8.30-6.30 / Fri 8.30-4.30 (Excluding Bank Holidays)

The car seat for baby has very short harness straps. Where can I order an extantion for harness straps?

There is no such thing as an extension for a carseat harness - it would be unsafe. The carseat harness has ample length for your child but will require extending as per the user manual to fit around the child safely.

How do you raise the shoulder straps up to a higher level on the Britax Marathon carseat?

The straps must be undone from a claw on the underside of the car seat so you have to remove the whole thing from the car. The claw is designed to keep the straps in place and this it does very well but its position on the undercarraige leaves no room for your hands and makes it near impossible to manage.

Cosco car seat

Purchasing used car seats at yard sales etc is illegal! The seat could have been damaged or could easily break because it is used. Goodwill doesnt even sell them because it is against the law. Save a life and buy NEW. The seller was wrong to do this. Never save a dime when it comes to safety! Strollers however are ok to re-sell.
Figuring out those straps are tricky and can cost a life if not done right. If you insist on keeping it, make an appointment with the calif. hwy patrol or police dept in your state and they will install the seat safely and propery for you. Do not do this yourself,please!

Carseat harness straps

You have to unloop the straps from the gold metal bar. This will allow the straps to be free so you can feed them thru the holes and re-feed them into the proper height hold. You will than noticed that there are loops at the very end of the straps which you can loop back onto the gold metal bar.

first the strap goes on the bottom, pull them even and the add the buckle, plastic buckle thing, and the other thing soft thing. then put the strap through the back of the seat (you should have two ends) not the must go OVER the adjusts! now take the metal piece that adjust the length and pull it long enough for it to reach the two straps and hook them up!! haha if this isnt good enough go to a store that carries the alpha omega elite car seats and check it out! GOOD LUCK!!
