Question about Cosco Summit 22260 - Bouncing Sheep

1 Answer

Bottom fabric attachment

I'm trying to remove my carseat cover to wash it, and I can't figure out how to remove the plastic holds on the seat that the seatbelt slides through. I've managed to manually pull off the top ones on the seat back.

    I have a similar problem, I got the top and sides of the fabric off, the strap holders on the shoulder can be popped off by pulling them when you are facing the carseat (as if you were looking at your child if they were in the seat) and the very front ones where the strap adjuster is also comes off by pulling straight out, but the ones down where their **** sits I cant get them off, Any idea how to remove those?

Ok I just found the website for the instructions
http://www.coscojuvenile.com/instructions/
Your carseat has the Model # and date manufactured on the side or bottom, type in the date & # and you can download the instructions.
It doesnt specifically address the plastic holds but they DO pop out. If you are facing the front of the car seat you can put a screwdriver under the edge of the plastic peice and turn the screwdriver sideways and the peice pops out. I got all four off.. took some muscle though! Good Luck

I need to clean a child's sickness from the base of my Toby. How do I seperate it?


Hi

It isn't recommended that you take apart the plastic shell of the carseat. You can remove the fabric from the carseat to wash it and then clean the shell with warm soapy water but it is not advisable to remove the harness or to take apart the factory seal of the shell.

Have a look at www.maxi-cosi.com and select the country you're in, then choose the Tobi carseat and select the instructions to view directions on how to remove the fabric.

I recently removed the cover of my maxi cosi priori car seat to wash it. Now I cannot work out how to put it back on. Basically I have unhooked both shoulder straps that I think were previously threaded...


Good Afternoon

Go to www.maxi-cosi.com and select the CabrioFix carseat to download a replacement instruction manual for details of how to replace the fabric.

The harness should not have been completely removed from the carseat in order to remove the fabric. If the harness has been completely removed we cannot advise that you re-thread it due to the safety implications of it being incorrectly done. In this instance please contact the customer service department on 01284 413 141 Mon-Fri 8.30-4.30 to discuss the carseat being sent to our engineers for them to re-thread the harness.

Hi i have got a maxi cosi cabriofix car baby car seat and cannot seem to remove the cover at the bottom where the grey circle is how do i do this and can i was the cover in the washing machine once...


Good Morning

The grey tensioner strap appears to be stitched in place but it isn't. Follow it around under the bottom of the carseat and the strap is in a piece of plastic catch shaped like an H on it's side. Wiggle one way then the other to unhook from this catch, and the carseat fabric can be removed (where the grey circle part is the fabric is tucked underneath slightly, once you've unhooked the tensioner strap you'll be able to get the fabric off easily).

Hand washing is recommended, but if you have delicate or handwash cycle on machine this is also suitable. Use a mild detergent and maximum temp 30 degrees for washing. Do not tumble dry: Do not leave in direct sunlight to dry. Ensure fabric is completely dry before putting it back on for use as damp fabrics may result in mould or mildew growth.

Remember never remove the harness straps from the carseat, the fabrics can be completely removed while the harness remains in place!

Hi I have removed the sun canopy from my maxi cosi cabriofix car seat so that it could be washed but I now cant re-attach, can you please advise? Thanks


Good Afternoon

There are two hoops of elastic at either end of the sun canopy - these hook in behind the knuckles of the bar that goes over the carseat (the carry handle/roll bar). Once you've hooked them in (it is fiddly, but possible) you can then tuck the rest of the fabric in between the plastic at the back of the carseat and the carseat fabric.

If you can't do it, pop it into a local retailer and ask them to give you a hand.

I need to clean fabric does it come away from seat


Good Evening

The fabric on all Maxi Cosi carseats can be removed for cleaning purposes.

Instructions for removing the fabric can be found in your user manual. If you no longer have your user manual you can download another copy at www.maxi-cosi.com Select the CabrioFix carseat as your model and you will see a tab over the image to download a copy of the manual it has a step by step guide in here for how to remove the fabrics to clean them.

It is recommended that fabrics are sponge washed by hand and dried naturally. Use a mild detergent suitable for hand washing and ensure it is thoroughly rinsed. To prevent discolouration of the fabric do not leave it to dry in direct sunlight. The fabric should not be tumble dried as this may cause unsightly bobbling.

Need to wash the cover but don't know how to get it off with out causing damage


"I bought this car seat because it was able to go from rear facing to forward facing to a booster, and it looks nice. I spent many minutes trying to figure out how to take the fabric cover off and ended up having to use a screw driver to pop the plastic caps that hold the fabric on the plastic frame! It was a big hassle to take the infant headrest off and extremely difficult to remove the bottom latch! However, it was very easy to adjust the straps and to install."

Washing Carseat Fabric


Hi,
You may have solved this problem already, but I had a similiar situation. If you can remove the round hard plastic fasteners that the straps pass through, it really is not too difficult to take the pad off. They are just clips that push against the hard plastic back of the seat to hold the straps in place. To remove them, I just took a flat head screw driver and placed it against the long side of the fastener and pushed up and toward the center of the fastener. I did this for both sides of the fastener and it popped right out. The straps then just unhook from the back and thread through to the front. Make sure to note how the straps are placed so that they can be replaced correctly. The pad washed up very nicely for me. I used warm water and regular detergent. I let it dry in the sun. Hope that this helps.

REmoving carseat cover to wash


I too have had this problem. I'm not certain that my model is the same as yours. Mine was purchased new in 2002 from Babies are Us and was approx. $250. Though color doesn't matter, mine is a brown houndstooth with a micro fiber faux suede. The way I finally did this..... as the above contributor noted, their are four difficult places to release...all are where the straps go through the fabric. Two are near the seat and two are near the shoulders. The two near the seat are held by plastic casings that should pull up about a 1/4 inch when pressure is applied. This gives you just enough room to work the fabric around these plastic pieces and remove. This is tight, but should not require ripping the fabric. Work from the narrow end first. Slide the fabric as far over as you can and then work on it like you were undoing a very tight button and button hole. The ones near the shoulder do not unbutton this way. Here, I had to litterally pop the casings free. I did this by applying even pressure on the whole cloth unit and pulling away from the actual car seat. The plastic casing pulled free of the unit and allowed me to free the cloth. I washed the cloth in the washing machine and hung to dry and it did very well. I agree that for the price we paid for this chair, it should not be THIS difficult to free to launder.

REMOVING COVER COSCO ALPHA OMEGA ELITE


The straps need to be removed from the metal clip in back, and then the plastic grommets must be pried loose from under the fabric with side pressure and an upward push. Its not easy. Bad design. There are no screws involved, but a standard screwdriver can help with the release. The oblong grommets have ridges that must be compressed to release.
