Having trouble transitioning this booster seat from the harness strap for smaller children to using it as a booster seat with the regular shoulder strap. Can't locate our manual. Would love to be able to download the manual from someplace so I can see how to position this and what the safety guidelines are. Any suggestions?

We have 6 car seats for our 3 children; one in each vehicle. I moved the seats around so all three can fit in our CRV; however, if I would not have swapped the carseats, all three would not have fit in the CRV. In other words, be creative. When your child is old enough/big enough for a booster seat, those are smaller. I think I waited until my child was at least 3 for a booster, but they are worth the $30-$60 to save the room you need in the car if your child is big enough.
On our Edddie Bauer car seats, you have to remove the base from the chair by pulling out the metal rod that goes through both pieces. It only comes out from one side. Then there are several plastic "clips" that the straps run through and hold the fabric in place. Gently pry these clips with a flathead screwdriver by sliding the tool under the clip base and pushing in while lifting up. The arm-rest covers should just be wrapped around and come off easily. Make note of where all the straps go through as it is a little confusing puttting it all back together.
I have an eddie bauer car seat and i have the straps for the seat as i had taken them off when i used it as a booster seat, now i have to use it again and I need to fix the straps. does anyone know how I can insert the straps
Converting the seat to a booster: (Alpha Omega Elite Deluxe 2004 version, Eddie Bauer) After all said and done, the base can probably be left on, it helps to recline the chair when the child is asleep. If you want to leave it out, the manual says the base can be removed for narrow vehicle seats or airline use. Locate the center bar at the bottom of the seat, push the tab at the end of the bar and pull the bar out. The seat can then be separated from the base. The seat has a "kickstand" that can be pulled out to sit the seat upright. Put the bar back in the base so you don't lose it.
To remove the harness, remove the base first. Then from the back of the seat, unfasten the harness from the harness bracket. Store the bracket by looping it behind and around the back spine of the shell. You can unthread the harness from that point and pull it out. From the bottom of the seat, locate the buckle's metal clip. Insert the clip up through the shell and pad, from the front pull the buckle free from the shell. Lock latch plates into buckle for safekeeping.
Once the seat is converted to adult straps don't use the latch system; hook the hooks together to keep it from swinging around, and place the top anchorage strap behind the seat with the anchor hook under the seat.
