SSHOULDER HARNESS SLOT QUESTION FOR REAR FACING IN RADIAN 80

Just wondering if I can move the shoulder harness slot up to the third slot rear facing. So obviously forward facing we should only be using the top three slots, but does it mean I can't use those same slots rear facing? I need more clarification.


The manual states :

Warning: only use top three shoulder harness positions for forward facing child

You can use any slots on the Radians for Rear facing so long as there is still at least an inch of shell above the child's head.

Cosco Alpha Omega Elite can't get straps back on right!


replace harness: 1) take **** harness and place metel bracket through the base of the seat(slot in shell) make sure buckle is facing out and not inwards. slide metal clip under small tab and push down on clip until it snaps in and locks into place... 2) thread harness without latch plate or harness retainer down through slot on one side of shell, under seat and up through slot on other side. 3) thread latch plate(clip that goes into ****clip)harness retainer onto the harness making sure they are correct. 4) thread harness end through other slot 5) make sure the harness goes over the barbut under the plastic bar, then fit loops on harness ends onto the harness bracket that looks like a triangle(kind of) 6) from the front even up harness to fit properly. And there you go the rest is pretty straight forward the base is pretty sraight forward to attach...

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.

I haven't seen a video for it, but I'll try to explain it clearly. To install it with the LATCH system, locate the anchors in your car - U shaped metal anchors in the seat, where the back meets the bench part. See your car's owner's manual - many cars don't have LATCH in the middle of the back seat, so you'll have to install it in a side seat or use the seatbelt to install, instead. Recline the carseat all the way - there is a handle under the harness adjuster on the front of the seat. Pull the handle while pushing back on the top of the seat. Tuck the top tether strap under and hook it under the base or the seat - it's only used when forward facing and is dangerous if left flapping. Pull the seat cover off of the front corners of the seat. Thread the black latch belt through the rear facing belt path (the holes on the bottom front of the seat - there should be a sticker identifying the path), making sure that it does not twist and is behind, not over or in front of, the **** strap, but in front of the the slots that the bottom of the harness straps go through. Replace the seat cover. Put the carseat where you want it in the car. Look to see that the level lines on the shoulder belt positioning guide are level with the ground. Double check that the top tether is secured underneath the seat. Fasten one latch hook to the anchor in your seat, going from above the anchor, so that the clip part of the hook is on the bottom and the solid side is on top. Repeat on the other side. Kneel in the car seat to push it firmly into the seat while pulling the strap tight through the adjuster. The seat is installed tight enough when you can grab it at the belt path and can not move it more than 1 inch side to side. It is normal to be able to pull the top of the seat towards your car's seat back some. To install it with a seatbelt - (Please note - you can only install with the LATCH system OR the seatbelt - doing both together increases the stress and force on the seat and can damage it!) Recline the seat and secure the top tether as above. Place the seat in the car and make sure that the level lines are level with the ground, as above. Thread the seat belt through the rear facing belt path (again, the holes on the bottom front of the seat...look for the sticker). Thread it under the seat pad. Like above, it should go between the bottom slots for the harness and the **** strap. Buckle the seat belt. Kneel in the seat, pull the seat belt all the way out from it's feeder, and feed it back in, pulling it as tight as you can. Check for tightness as above. While your child is rear-facing, the harness should be in a slot that is even with or below his shoulders. Pull it snug - when it's tight enough, you shouldn't be able to pinch up any slack lengthwise at the shoulders or hips and it should lay in a straight line without any sagging. Make sure the chest clip is even with the baby's armpits, not over the neck or the belly. Good luck!

HARNESS FOR FRONT FACING EVENFLO TITAN CHILD RESTRAINT


there is another thread on this.

Basically, locate the ends of the straps on either side of the seat. You can remove the plastic end thingy and take the strap out. Then re-thread the strap. Remember to thread it through the thin grey strap (which adjusts the tension of the main shoulder straps) as well as the little metal guide at the back of the chair.

Your problem may also be that the length-adjuster (thinner grey strap) is too tight. You can loosen it by pressing on the button located just in front of the main buckle and pulling on the shoulder straps. This is also how you tighten the shoulder straps - by pulling on the thinner grey strap.

Generally, the shoulder straps should come out around the childs shoulder level. Higher is ok. Lower is bad because it doesn't secure him in.

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.

I this seat as good and as safe as the more expensive ones?


Yes, it's a great seat. All seats sold in the U.S. have to pass the same safety standards.
This one is easier to install than a lot of others I've used and fits most kids well from babyhood until at least age 3 or 4, when they'll need to move into a 5 point harness booster.
It rear-faces to 33 pounds, which is great, since rear-facing is SO much safer than forward-facing...my LARGE 26 month old can still comfortably rear-face in it.
It's not as padded and fancy as the more expensive seats, but my kids haven't found it any less comfortable than their Britax or Graco seats.

If you washed the straps, they will need to be replaced. Lock the harness together, to prevent the straps from being twisted. Feed the top part of the harness through the slots that are AT or ABOVE your hangchilds shoulder if the seat is forward facing. IF the seat is for rearfacing, feed the top part of the harness straps through the shoulder slots at or BELOW the child's shoulder. Once each is through, reach down and attach them to the silver plate that hangs from the **** strap adjuster. Once you silde each of the harness straps, then slide the bottom of the through the hole in the cover, then into the base of the seat, folding the top like a triangle makes it easier to get through the tight holes. Repeat on the other side and you are ready to travel! Thanks!
