Re: CLK 330 seat malfunctions

The solution to your problem is to adjust your leg length instead.

How old or big a baby do you use the Maxi Dozi Insert for?

You can remove the lumbar support pillow when you feel baby needs more space - its needed for a newborn baby to keep them flatter, but once they need more room (normally around 4 months old) you can remove it.
The headhugger should be left in place as long as possible for maximum protection in a side impact - the lumbar support cushion can be removed as demonstrated in the attached image. 63b213ad-9ec6-430e-b5b7-1f46713b6684.jpg

How do you put the footmuff on the maxi cosi carseat?


Open the carseat harness and have the carseat in front of you so you\'re looking at the seat. Slide the shoulder harness pads down the length of the harness and off over the harness clips. Unzip the footmuff and place it into the seat and thread the harness through the holes at shoulder and crotch position. Replace the shoulder harness pads onto the harness. You can now place your baby in, do up the harness + tension correctly, then zip up the footmuff to keep baby cosy.

If you\'re still using the headhugger/lumbar support wedge this can be used underneath the footmuff.

Changing from newborn to three months old. removed head hugger but do i need to put the booster cushion part in?

Good Afternoon

At three months old your baby is not ready to have the headhugger removed. You should remove the lumbar support cushion from the bottom of the headhugger to provide additional space now that baby is 3 months old, but replace the headhugger without the additional lumbar support cushion. The headhugger is designed to protect vulnerable neck and spinal muscle in a side to side collision and should not be removed until baby can confidently sit up unaided - this is normally between 6 and 9 months old.

I have a new graco cleo car seat. What weight and age does my baby have to be before I shoud face it forward in the car?

Group 0 Until the age of 12 months (13kg/28lbs), your child must always be in a rear-facing position. Group 0+ car seats move from a reclined to a seated position, whilst perfectly supporting your child's back.
Group 0+ Until the age of 12 months (13kg/28lbs), your child must always be in a rear-facing position. Group 0+ car seats move from a reclined to a seated position, while perfectly supporting your child's back.

Group 0+/1 Children are unique and grow at different paces so category 0+/1 seats are highly flexible to reflect this. Babies up to 9kg (19 lbs) can travel safely facing the rear. From 18kg (39lbs) the seat can be adjusted so they face forward, allowing you to spend more time face-to-face with your baby which is an important part of parent-child bonding.
return to top
Group 1/2/3 The car seats in this category grow with your child from 9 months to 12-years old (9-36kg/19-79 lbs) so they can remain comfortable and importantly, develop properly. This flexibility makes it the ideal car seat category for large families and grandparents with grandchildren of different ages.

Group 2/3 A child must have a car seat that is tailored to their weight, height and age until they are 12 years-old, or 36kg (79lbs). The group 2/3 category offers convertible seats for older children aged between 4 and 12 (15-36kg/33-79lbs), this means the car seat grows with your child.

Hope this helps, I have a graco for my 12 week old, this info is from the graco website

Bye for now

Which direction does the wedge go in the maxi cosi cabriofix? We got ours second hand and I our boy doesn't seem to be comfortable either way I put the wedge in.

Good Afternoon

The lumbar support wedge should go in the CabrioFix carseat with the thicker part at the back. The idea is that for a very young baby it provides a flatter seat, keeping the spine, hips and neck in more of a straight line than a sitting position. The lumbar support wedge should be used for a newborn baby up until between 4 and 6 months old to provide optimum safety in the event of an impact and to make baby as comfortable as possible while in the carseat.

Need to remove the cover from a britax eclipse

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.

Moving of seat belt to a higher level

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.

Need help with putting straps back on

I know this is months later, but here you are in case you (or anyone else) needs the info again. First, though, I feel that it wouldn't be responsible to neglect to tell you that if you got the seat in 2000, it is expired and no longer safe to use. Car seats generally expire after 6 years because the plastic degrades over time - in a 10 year old seat, it can look fine but actually be brittle enough that the entire harness can rip out of the seat if it's an accident. For the manual, visit Cosco's website and fill in the product number and date of manufacture. It will bring up a PDF file of the manual that you can download. To rethread the straps, first replace the **** strap. Slide the metal plate down through the slot in the seat, with the buckle facing out. Slide the metal clip under the tab and push it down to lock it in place. Facing the seat, start by threading the end of the harness strap down through the slot of the left side of the bottom (where the child's right hip would be). Under the pad/cover, thread it across the bottom of the seat and up through the matching slot on the right side. Pull it until you have equal lengths on both sides. Thread the buckles onto the the strap (one one each end) and buckle them. Thread the chest buckle onto both ends, making sure that the harness doesn't twist. Buckle it, too. Push the ends through the harness slots. Pull the harness through to the back, making sure that it goes OVER the metal bar, but UNDER the plastic adjuster handle. There is a loop sewn into each end of the harness. The adjuster strap has a splitter plate, kind of shaped like a Y. Slide each loop over the ends of the plate and all of the way into the slot, so that the curved ends of the splitter plate are exposed and the strap is secure in it's slot. Adjust the harness height by squeezing the metal bar on the back of the seat (the one behind the harness) forward and moving it and the plastic adjuster bar up or down to the correct position (at or below the shoulders for rear-facing, at or above the shoulders for forward facing). Do note that the very top slot is NOT for use with the harness - it's only to adjust the headrest when the seat is being used as a seat belt positioning booster and is not reinforced to support the harness in an accident! Adjust the tightness of the straps with the button/extra length on the front of the seat. Properly tightened straps should lay in a straight line without sagging and you should not be able to pinch up any slack (lengthwise going down the harness, not across the width of it) at the shoulders or hips. Adjust the chest buckle to lie in line with your child's armpits, never his neck or belly.

Instruction for installing Evenflo Triumph Car Seat. We are the grandparents and our granson is staying with us for a few days. Our daughter is loanig us their car seat, but won't be there to help instal...

On the back of the car seat you should have a black hook with a safety latch on it connected to a adjustable strap. You will require an anchor point to connect this to in the back of your car, depending on your car (sedan, station wagon,4x4 ect) your anchor point will have a small removable cover over it about 1 inch square or so, if you have not got one already installed make sure you get the anchor as well. This will be a small metal latch with a spacer and bolt with a safety nut the nut goes under the bottom of the parcel shelf if it is a sedan if not you won't need the nut. The the hook will attach to the anchor and then you just loosen the adjustable strap out until it is fairly loose (about 3 or 4 inches of play between the car seat and the baby seat will be fine) now if the baby is small and needs the seat to lay down ie they can't hold there head up or are to small to face forward, have the head end of the baby seat to the front of the car and set the seat belt throught the hole thats horizontal to the car seat. If they can face forward same thing just stand seat upright and feed the seat belt through the horizontal holes. The hole for the seat belt should be about 2 to 3 inches high and about 4 or 5 inches long. Just becareful not to put the seat belt over the childs belts on the baby seat. Then just tighten the adjustable ******** the baby seat until firmly tightened against the car seat and you are done. The baby seat will still move a bit from side to side but if it moves more than 3 inches or so tighten the adjustable strap even more.

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.
