Lost car seat instructions. How do I install facing rear? It looks easy enough but i want to make sure I'm not missing anything.

If it has a base and you car is equipped with mounting bracket there should be small metal hooks attached to canvas straps. Simply attach the hooks to the mounting points and tighten. If no mounting brackets you will have to remove the seat from the base. Pull the lap/shoulder belt all the way out, and on the base you should see plastic retaining slots. Weave the lap and shoulder belt through both sets of hooks on the base and pull tight. When the seat is mounted back to the base you should have very little movement when you wiggle the seat

Dont know how to fit the seat to the bike

1. Tighten the bolt on the seat-post of your bike's seat if your seat is a bit shaky. You may need to replace this bolt if it is rusted or withered.

2. Adjust the pitch angle of your seat if it is uncomfortable. You can have it level, leaning forward or leaning backward depending upon what is more comfortable for you. Use an Allen wrench (Allen key) to loosen the bolt on the-seat post to adjust the angle.

4. Tighten the tension on the cover of the seat if the seat has one and it is loose. If it has 2 straps underneath the seat attached with a hook, release it from the hook and tighten, then re-hook the straps.

Reattach seat to Evenflo Exersaucer

Match the red arrow on the fabric seat to the middle of the seat back. Use a crochet hook to fish the elastic straps through the slots. Pull the elastic straps to hook on to the tabs on the lower rotator fastener. The key is to pop the fabric seat up into a cone, so that you can see what you're doing.

Cant find the third hook for middle seat belt in the back seat

On rear seat, remove it by lifting it up, then look down there for the missing hook or belt. When replacing the seat, you have to insure all the straps are on the seat before pushing in and down to replace the seat. It just pulls up and pushes down.

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.
