Question about Graco SnugRide - Giselle Infant Car Seat

1 Answer

I have a Graco infant car seat and want to remove the padded seat cover to place in the laundry. There are two elastics on either side of the car seat that help secure it to the sides of the handle. I have removed all the hardware, but for the life of me, I cannot figure out how to remove the elastic sides! Can you please help me?

What model do you have?

You can call graco at: Graco Customer Service is available Monday through Friday, 8am to 5pm Eastern Time.
1-800-345-4109 (US)

Ensure you do NOT wash the straps/harness, as it will make it unsafe and you will need to replace it.


They also have an online manual fi that will assist you. I checked my seat, and it is an older snug ride with no straps.

Thanks
:)

Recall


Graco Snug-Seat

From the Owners' Manual:
STOP USING INFANT RESTRAINT AND BASE AND THROW IT AWAY after the date molded into the back of the infant restraint. "DO NOT use this car seat after December (Year)"
Please cut off the straps and remove the cover from the seat before throwing away (or recycling). This will keep others from trying to reuse or resell the out-of-date seat.

I washed my daughters graco car seat and now i havent a clue of how to put it back together and i need re assemble it fast please help


Proper installation of a car seat is imperative to protectan infant. Accidents do happen and assuring that the instructions forinstallation of the Graco Infant Restraint/Carrier are followed will increasethe chances of preventing injury or death as a result of an accident. Graco carseats are a popular choice among parents due the availability of products atcommon retail stores, affordability and user-friendly baby gear.Graco Car SeatInstallation
Step 1
Plan to secure the infant seat facing the rear inthe middle of the back seat. If a center position is not available, positionthe seat directly behind the driver's side seat. For safety reasons, therestraint should not be placed in a position where there is an air bag. Ensurethat the proper vehicle lap belt system is in place; manually adjusted lapbelts, automatic locking retractor lap belts and lap/shoulder belts withlocking latch plates are all considered safe for use with the Graco InfantCarrier/Restraint.Step 2
Remove the carrier from the Graco car seat baseby squeezing the lever at the rear of the restraint and lifting the seat up.Place the base in the vehicle facing the rear. Thread the vehicle shoulder andlap belts through openings at the end of the base without twisting the belts.Secure the belts by placing plastic tongue over the belts. Tighten the vehiclebelts by pushing down on the base and pulling out any slack.Step 3Install locking clip to secure shoulder and lapbelt together just above the seat belt buckle. Connect the two belts with thelocking clip. Buckle the lap belt system and tighten by pulling out any slack.Ensure that car seat base is secure by pulling and pushing on it; the baseshould not move sideways, forward or backward.Step 4
Place the Graco carrier in the base. Push down onthe restraint until it clicks and locks into the base. Set the infant in therestraint for travel and place harness straps over the baby's shoulders. Clickthe chest place together over the sternum and lock the buckles into placebetween the legs.Tipsand Warnings
  • Contact local police departments, hospitals and fire departments to inquire about child car seat safety checks
  • Graco Infant Restraint/Carrier will not protect against serious injury or death if not installed properly. Always read the Graco owner's manual that comes with product prior to attempting installation and travel with an infant.

Do we have to use the graco car seat fixing base in the car as it doesnt actually fit behind my seats and couldnt we just use the actual car seat on its own as long as it is held in with a seat belt etc,is...


You can use the base or just use the car's seat belts to hold the car seat in place. Make sure it is tight. Download the instructions from Graco or it should be on the side of the car seat on a sticker.

No problem with harness but what about the extras?


I had the same problem. The elastic loops loop forward, under the car seat handle, and attach to the plastic clips. You can get an idea of how it should go from page 13 of Graco's instruction manual (http://www.gracobaby.com/Instruction%20Manuals/ISPC090BB.pdf).

This may not be the instruction manual for your exact model--you can find your model number on a sticker under the base. However, the instruction manual for my model didn't include information about putting the seat cover back on after removing it to wash--the instruction manual I linked to above does.

Dismantleing canopy


If this is for the Graco Snugride (I have the Windsor model from the Quattro Travel System), this will work:


1. Push the Graco canopy to one side, exposing the plastic support bars that hold the canopy in place.

2. The center of the support is where the canopy comes apart. Using both hands, pull the canopy support
bar apart (as if you were playing tug-of-war). It's best to grab the curved ends and pull HARD (and point it away to the side so that you don't hit your face).

3. Once the support bars are apart, remove the old Graco canopy and slip on the new/freshly washed canopy.

4. Secure the support bars by snapping them shut, and then slide the canopy into place.

Graco snug ride car seat model #7270BIA


Best bet is to give Graco a call. 800-345-4109 I have done it before, you just have to gauge that it looks right. Put on the cover, fit the top (head) part first, then make sure the sides are on good then the bottom (feet) then you need to pull the straps through the slits to cover the shoulders, slide on the chest buckle pieces. Do you still have your manual? I would expcet them to have a diagram of this. :)

I need to know how to take the liner out of the baby car seat so I can wash it.


You have to unlatch the shoulder straps from underneath then unscrew the side handle to remove the elastic. Then your able to completely remove the cover. Just pay attention, because getting if off is the easy part, putting it back can proove difficult. Good Luck!

I took the cover off to wash it but now can't figure out how to put it back on. I think it is a 5 point connection system model 8465wsr3


Its a GREAT seat! I have the same one!
Assuming you removed the harness.

The easiest way I have found to do this is , place the seat on the ground and put the cover on the seat. There are some elastic fastners that are loops on some models, that go onto small plastic poles. IF you don't have this, it is ok.


Then clip the harness together at the chest clip, and at the buckle. This helps you not get so twists.

Put each of the top shoulder straps through the hole in the seat cover AND the plastic of the shell of the seat. For this rear facing seat, the straps should be At or BELOW the shoulders of the infant riding in the seat. When both straps are through the plastic shells, you slide them onto the metal flat mushroom shaped piece on the back of the seat that is attached to the adjustor strap.

Pass the middle strap (the buckle) through the hole in the seat cover and shell. Pull to ensure it catches.
NExt, take the small metal cliped bottoms of the harness, and pass them through the seat cover and seat shell in the bottom of the seat, they are in the crease of the side/bottom of the plastic shell. Once they are passed through, give them a good pull to ensure they catch. Repeat for the other side, and you are good to go!



If you washed the harness, in the machine, it needs to be thrown out, call Graco for a replacement.

Answer: To clean pad slide the elastic loops of the seat pad off of the seat shell. Remove the harness system. Cloth pad, canopy, and head support may be machine washed separately cold water, delicate cycle, tumble dry 10-15 minutes, low heat. Wipe straps, buckles, and harness adjusters with warm damp cloth and mild soap. Air dry. NOTE: DO NOT submerge harness assembly in water. To help protect the vehicle upholstery, place a towel beneath and behind the child restraint.
