Question about Baby & Toddler Car Seats

1 Answer

Car seat If I put a spirit level across the drivers seat the bubble dips 15% degrees to one side. This makes for uncomfortable driving (the back and hip joints are out of alignment). Where can I get the seat reupholstered in Kent ? If possible, somewhere that will remove the seat and replace one fixed (carrying the seat from one place to another is not practical - since I won't have a car (Mercedes E Class ). Many thanks.

    The ebay option is unlikely as it is not a standard seat. Levelground - yes!. But thanks for replying.

With the Primo Viaggio car seat, newborns and young infants should be at a 45 degree angle to prevent head slump and best distribute crash forces in case of accidents. Once infants had gained head and neck support a 45 degree angle is no longer needed.

The other type of car seat you are referring to is a car seat bed. They generally only used by very ill or very premature infants. With certain infant seats now being able to accommodate ever smaller infants they are a shrinking market and are not generally available for public purchase or use.

Hi, I have my seat installed in a 2003 Envoy. The level lines on the side show the seat sitting too upright. Also I can not remember what the correct installation is for the top latch belt. This was used...


for a rear facing car seat, put a folded towel under the carseat where the back of the envoy seat meets the bottom cushion, this will bring the level indicators closer to level. Also, you might need to use more than one towel once you tighten the seat down.

I need to put the shlder/lap strap back in


the center of the belt will be under the seat coming up through the holes, place the two clips on the strap followed by the chest clip, then the neck protector pads. Push the ends of the strap through the two top holes. Route it down over the metal but under the plastic (on the back side) and attach both ends to the metal adjuster underneath. The receiver clip, you just turn 90 degrees and push through desired hole until the end catches.

How do I convert my car seat to a boster seat --I have an Eddie Bauer Deluxe 3-in-1 Car Seat


Remove the large bar holding the bottom plate. One side will have a plastic retainer which you just move to the side and pull the barr all the way out from that side. There is a rear leg that you can pull down and back which will make the seat sit more upright. Remove the strap (it is one solid strap) and be sure to save all the parts if you plan on giving it to a needy family when your child outgrows it. The center clip is easy to remove, turn the seat upside down and find the metal retainer and pull it up, turn 90 degrees and feed it through the hole and pull on the other side. Now you should have a strap/clip free seat that will be a "seatbelt positioning booster seat".

Can't get the base off


On the front of the seat, under the harness adjuster, there is a handle to pull to recline the seat. Pull it, while pushing back on the top of the seat to fully recline it.
There is a metal bar going across the base. Facing the front of the car seat, there is a tab that says "press" on the right hand side, under the bar. Press the tab, while pushing the bar through from the left side until you can pull it completely out.
Pull on the recline handle again and lift the seat off of the base.

How do you install the car seat for rear facing?


Hey Just posting this for future reference for other people since I see that you posted over a month ago :) ..

To install the car seat in rear facing I used the latch system. (you can use the latch system if your vehicle has latches..they are tiny metal bars in between the seats)

First of all with this dumb car seat I found out that the latch system was not in the proper place so if you find that yours is not where the diagram shows (in the manual) then you'll have to take off the seat cover and manually put them in their place. Then go ahead and clip onto the latches in the rear facing position. If the car seat is too far forward then inline the seat. If the car seat is still not leaning far enough back to be level with the ground (there should be two level marks on the top/side of the car seat) place a rolled towel (or roll a 2x4 in a rolled towel like i did) then clip onto the latches. Hope this helps someone.

I haven't seen a video for it, but I'll try to explain it clearly. To install it with the LATCH system, locate the anchors in your car - U shaped metal anchors in the seat, where the back meets the bench part. See your car's owner's manual - many cars don't have LATCH in the middle of the back seat, so you'll have to install it in a side seat or use the seatbelt to install, instead. Recline the carseat all the way - there is a handle under the harness adjuster on the front of the seat. Pull the handle while pushing back on the top of the seat. Tuck the top tether strap under and hook it under the base or the seat - it's only used when forward facing and is dangerous if left flapping. Pull the seat cover off of the front corners of the seat. Thread the black latch belt through the rear facing belt path (the holes on the bottom front of the seat - there should be a sticker identifying the path), making sure that it does not twist and is behind, not over or in front of, the **** strap, but in front of the the slots that the bottom of the harness straps go through. Replace the seat cover. Put the carseat where you want it in the car. Look to see that the level lines on the shoulder belt positioning guide are level with the ground. Double check that the top tether is secured underneath the seat. Fasten one latch hook to the anchor in your seat, going from above the anchor, so that the clip part of the hook is on the bottom and the solid side is on top. Repeat on the other side. Kneel in the car seat to push it firmly into the seat while pulling the strap tight through the adjuster. The seat is installed tight enough when you can grab it at the belt path and can not move it more than 1 inch side to side. It is normal to be able to pull the top of the seat towards your car's seat back some. To install it with a seatbelt - (Please note - you can only install with the LATCH system OR the seatbelt - doing both together increases the stress and force on the seat and can damage it!) Recline the seat and secure the top tether as above. Place the seat in the car and make sure that the level lines are level with the ground, as above. Thread the seat belt through the rear facing belt path (again, the holes on the bottom front of the seat...look for the sticker). Thread it under the seat pad. Like above, it should go between the bottom slots for the harness and the **** strap. Buckle the seat belt. Kneel in the seat, pull the seat belt all the way out from it's feeder, and feed it back in, pulling it as tight as you can. Check for tightness as above. While your child is rear-facing, the harness should be in a slot that is even with or below his shoulders. Pull it snug - when it's tight enough, you shouldn't be able to pinch up any slack lengthwise at the shoulders or hips and it should lay in a straight line without any sagging. Make sure the chest clip is even with the baby's armpits, not over the neck or the belly. Good luck!

I had the same problem in my 240sx Nissan, I was told that because of the dip in the seat it was impossible to fasten it down properly so I went to one of those help for car seat classes that the police help you with and they told me just to take a towel and tightly roll it up and put in the dip of the seat, then fasten the base down! Hope this helps you!
