You take the seat belt and put the lap strap thru the back of the carseat and click in in on the oher side pull tight and carseat is secure. the shoulder strap part doesnt effect the safety of the car seat at all

Can you use a lap belt only with this booster seat?


  • Yes you can. The belt goes between the front and rear sets of arms on the booster seat. It is always advised to use a shoulder strap with it but you need a clip to bring the direction of the top of the shoulder strap [seat belt] to avoid neck (throat) impact. If this is not possible at the moment then run the shoulder strap behind the child and the lap belt portion over their lap, between the two sets of arms, as they sit in the seat. Then get a seat belt locking clip soon. You can get them anywhere on the net and at your local department stores as well for $7 or so. Like this one here. http://cheapboostercarseatcheapprice.tk/cheappriceoffer/graco-seatbelt-locking-clip-B0002ADQOU

I purchased cosco car seat model #22491-AOL and there are no straps/ harness. Am I just suppose to use my car seat belts to restrain the car seat. It does have plastic under head piece to put I guess car...


Yes, this car seat is a booster seat rather then a harnessed car seat.

The requirements are 30-100lbs and 34" to 57".

It's generally recommended that boosters are not used until 5-6 years old when the child is able to sit in proper position in the car on both long and short trips after they have outgrown their harnessed seat.

How do you convert it from a car seat to a booster seat?


Take the base off if it has one, either clips, screws, or a metal rod holding it on. Take the belts out. They should slide off the clip at the back of the seat, then unthread belts from buckles. The buckle/strap between the legs usually has a metal keeper below the seat. To remove you need to bend/twist the keeper until you can push it UP through the seat and remove the belt/strap. It is now a booster seat for use with a lap/shoulder belt in the car. Store all the parts you removed in a ziploc bag for when your child outgrows it so it can be reused.

How do we fix front passenger side seat belt retractor on 1999 Ford Taurus? It will not pull out....


you may have to remove the bolt that holds the buckle to the floor. Try to push the belt into the retractor and see if it frees up.

I assume you are saying it is in the locked mode. It has an automatic lock mode for holding a child seat. When the belt is pulled all the way out, it goes into locking mode. You will hear it ratchet when the belt starts going back in.



Section 01-20A: Restraints, Active 1999 Taurus, Sable Workshop Manual
DESCRIPTION AND OPERATION Safety Belt, Lap/Shoulder The dual locking mode retractor on the shoulder belt portion of the combination lap/shoulder safety belt for the front seat passenger and rear seat outboard passengers operates in two ways:
  1. In the vehicle sensitive (emergency locking) mode, the shoulder belt retractor will allow the occupant freedom of movement, locking tight only on hard braking, hard cornering or impacts of approximately 8 km/h (5 mph) or more. The front and rear outboard seat belt retractors can also be made to lock by pulling/jerking on the belt.
  1. In the automatic locking mode, the shoulder belt retractor will be automatically locked and remain locked when the combination lap/shoulder safety belt is buckled and does not allow the occupant freedom of movement. This mode provides tight lap/shoulder belt fit on the occupant and on a child safety seat or infant carrier installation restraint.
  1. When the combination lap/shoulder belt is unbuckled and allowed to retract completely, the retractor will switch to the vehicle sensitive (emergency) locking mode.
sxh~us~en~file=ani_caut.gif~gen~ref.gif WARNING: REAR-FACING INFANT SEATS SHOULD NEVER BE PLACED IN THE FRONT SEATS.
The automatic locking mode must be used when installing a child safety seat on the front passenger seat and rear outboard seats where dual locking retractors are provided

Having trouble with straps in car seat


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.)

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.

Car seat


Dorel Juvenile Group manufactures these car seats for under the Cosco brand. You should check out their web site.
  • Check out the recall notices and make sure your seat is not listed.
  • Register your car seat so that you are informed of any future recalls.
There does not seem to be any Manuals on their website, but they do list a phone number. 1-800-544-1108

When I did this my shoulder pieces were screwed on. I am assuming you mean where the straps go through.
