Question about Cosco High Back Booster 22-200 /22-207
We just purchased a 2004 Safety 1st model 22-235-DTA off craigslist. Only need it for 5 days when our grand son is visiting. I took it apart to wash it and now need an instruction manual for putting it back together. HELP! THANKS! I'm trying to put the car seat back together after washing
HI, I tried to research for you and find the manual. I typed in the info you provided at the safety1st.com website. This was the reply I got:
Thank you for contacting Dorel Juvenile Group. At this time we do not have your instruction manual available for download. Please contact Consumer Relations by email at firstname.lastname@example.org, by fax at 1-800-207-8182, or by phone at 1-800-544-1108 and your instruction manual will be sent to you. HOpe fully you can get the help you need from the associates there. :)
P.s. As a mother of 4 I feel compelled to mention to you the following, as I am sure you are unaware of it. Please keep in mind I am not trying to be rude at all, just want to help you be aware of some startling facts. I am a big 2nd hand buyer when it comes to most all things baby and kids. You can truely get a bargain on things this way. However, the one definate thing you shouldn't buy is a car seat. And the reasons are due to the 3 yr rule (they always recommend you not use a seat more than 3 yrs old as they are always inventing safer ones) and you simply don't know 100% if this seat has never been involved in an accident! When seats are involved in an accident, it shifts things and makes the seat unreliable in it's security to properly protect your child. They always recommend replacing a seat after you have been involved in an accident yourself due to this. Good luck to you putting the seat back together! They aren't easy that is for sure!! :)

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.
