Re: 2002 xr6 rear seatbelts

One end of the belts are fixed, the other end has a flat tempered spring wound around a spool. on the end furthest against the spool is a tang that hitches into the spool. this is probably broken. take apart the retractor and you'll see what I mean.

Fit toyota starlet

Hi Lisa

The carseat would require a physical fitting from trained staff prior to use to ensure it can be safely installed using the 3 point seatbelt. This is due to the fact there is no standard length for seatbelts or seatbelt webbing so we would always advise a physical fitting from trained staff for any unit being fitted with the seatbelt as it may fit one vehicle but not another of the same make, model and registration.

Will it fit fiat panda 5 door

Good Morning

Any carseat fitted with the 3 point seatbelt in a vehicle requires a physical fitting from a trained member of staff prior to purchase to confirm suitability.

This is due to the fact that there is no standard length for seatbelts and seatbelt webbing and a carseat may be suitably fitted in one vehicle but not another due to lack of seatbelt length.

Please take your vehicle to your nearest authorised retailer and ask for a carseat fitter trained member of staff to provide a physical fitting to establish suitability.

We have installed the child seat rear facing into a 2003 jeep liberty. I would appear from the instructions that only the foot end of the car seat is attached to the car allowing the head to end of the...

Good Evening

The horizontal or lap section of the three point seatbelt should be placed over the foot end of the carseat and held in place under the two blue clips either side of the seat. The diagonal section of the seatbelt should go around the back of the carseat through the blue clip at the back.

Ensure the seatbelt is tensioned fully to prevent excessive movement.

If you're still not satisfied it is fitted correctly do not use it and return it to your retailer with proof of purchase and ask them to show you how to fit it properly.

How do i fit the nania car seat into my car? no instructions??

Nania car seats are rear facing car seats that use the car's seatbelts to keep it in place. The seatbelts slide under the two tabs toward the front of the car seat and are then snapped into the other side of the seatbelt clasp. Most fire stations or hospitals have people that can help you if you are unsure. Some Jr Colleges have people who are public leasons (?) to help too. Good luck and be safe.

I took off the cover to wash and now I'm trying to figure out how to get straps put back on

This will help if you lay out the chest pieces and all the pieces you removed on the table first. If it helps, snap them together. Then, lay out the pieces with metal prongs that lock into the buckle that goes between your child's legs.

1st pull through the belt adjusting piece through the bottom cover ****.

2nd pull the square release buckle through the second ****, on top of the piece that tightens and releases. This is the piece that you push with your thumb to release the seatbelt.

3rd pull both side seatbelts through the respective side right and left and make sure they are flat.

4th slide on the two pieces with metal prongs on one left and one right seatbelt. Before you do this, ensure that you have put the correct piece on the correct side and that they will latch properly into the buckle. Snap them into the buckle to ensure you have it right.

5th attach the two respective chest clips on one right and one left seatbelt. Snap them together to ensure you have it right.

6th pull the top shoulder seatbelt straps through one of the top cover slits. If you have a newborn, then it will be the bottom **** at the top. If your child has grown, then it will be the top two slits. Ensure both seatbelts are pulled either through the same **** on either side.

7th after you have pulled the shoulder straps through the top slits on the cover, pull them through the slits in the plastic carseat frame. Pull them through until you see them at the rear.

8th attach on their respective sides the shoulder strap at the back of the plastic carseat. There is a big brass metal piece with "hooks" at the top. The shoulder strap has a seatbelt "loop" on one end that can be hooked on. Do this on each respective side and make sure it is secure.

How to fit a maxi cosi cabrio car seat - note it is the old style not the new cabriofix


To fit the Cabrio (with seat belts only), follow these steps:
Note that you will have three metallic looking blue seatbelt hooks (made of plastic) on the Cabrio. One is at the back to carseat (directly behind the childs head) and also there is one either side of the child (when seated in the carseat), these hooks are used to slip the seat belt into and therefore secure the seat.
Placing the carseat facing the rear windscreen of the car - if this is in the front seat, then ensure that your airbag is disabled if you have one. If this is not possible, then DO NOT use the front seat.
Ensure that the carseat handle is clicked into the 'carrying' position, upright.
Taking the seatbelt in your hands, slip the lapbelt through the two blue hooks which are either side of baby and then click the seatbelt into the buckle. Pull firmly so it's nice and taut, hold onto the carseat when you are pulling the seatbelt.
Whilst taking the slack with one hand, take the shoulder seatbelt and loop through the third blue hook (located on the back of the carseat) and again pull firmly whilst holding onto the carseat.
When you attempt this, practice without the baby in as this is much easier to do.

Finally, check that the buckle of your seatbelt is not resting too high or on an angle of the cabrios plastic shell, as this is considered dangerous and is called 'buckle crunch', for more information on this, please see the link below, which explains with images:

I hope this helps.

Trying to adjust the child seatbelt harness higher in the carseat

I located my instruction manual for this carseat. It instructed me to turn the carseat over & located on the bottom are two metal brackets that lock the seatbelt harness. You just have to detach each metal bracket & pull through the bottom slots of the carseat, readjust each seatbelt to whatever level is necessary & push back through the bottom of the seat to lock securely. Thanks anyway for your help!

Rear Facing Installation

That is the common installation process for a convertible carseat in rear-facing position. It is important that the shoulder/lap seatbelt be as tight as possible. This can best be achieved by putting as much of your own weight as possible on the carseat (without the baby of course), clicking into the seatbelt fastener and then pulling as much slack as possible out of the seatbelt strap. If you have the assistance of another adult, one should provide the weight on the carseat from inside the vehicle while the other pulls on the seatbelt strap from outside to remove as much slack as possible. If you have an I-shaped locking bracket, it should be installed over both straps 1 inch from the seatbelt fastener.

Some, but not all, manufacturers provide a metal locking bracket to be placed on the seat belt after the carseat is installed to prevent excessive slippage. You could contact your manufacturer to see if one should have been provided or you may purchase one at most major baby product retailers.

Be aware, a little movement of the installed carseat is considered normal and acceptable.

One last note, many fire stations, police stations, children's hospitals and even car dealerships offer free carseat safety checks. Call those in your area and ask if they offer this service.
