Just did it. It took two of us, but only a couple of minutes and no tools (except a table knife) once we'd worked out what the problem was. The reason the strap doesn't thread easily through the slot is that there is a sprung two-part mechanism that needs to be held open. One person threads the strap through while the other keeps the mechanism open.


Person 1:

1) Find the slot under the chair that the strap goes into - turn the seat upside down; it's a thin gap you can feel with your fingertip when you run your finger along the narrow back of the metal strip under the front of the seat (not the base).

2) Remove the metal rod that attaches the grey reclining lever. The rod is about 20 cm long and can be pushed out without tools. Removing this rod seems to make it easier to open the buckle mechanism. When replacing the rod later, you just have to line it up carefully with holes (we used a torch to help us see them)

3) Make sure the strap passes under the metal rod at the bottom of the seat back (you can see how here in a small photo here: http://www.englishforum.ch/attachments/sale-wanted/37565d1327058634-sale-maxi-cosi-tobi-car-seat-9mths-3-yrs-zh-maxi_cosi_tobu_small.jpg)

Person 2

4) Push back buckle as far as it will go (it goes back past vertical easily, then needs another firmer push,

5) Hold the buckle in this backwards position.

6) Insert a table knife (rounded and blunt, not sharp) into the space under the buckle and push back the sprung, hinged plastic part that the knife touches at the back.

7) Person 1 then threads the strap back through the slot, pushing until then end comes out.

8) Tie a knot in the end of the strap so you don't accidentally pull it through again!

9) Replace the metal rod in the reclining mechanism.

10) Done!

Straps wont lentghen on my maxi cosi tobi


Hi
It may be dirt / debris such as crumbs in the tensioner housing unit. Try vacuuming the carseat, paying special attention to the tensioner housing unit (where the tensioner strap comes out of the carseat)
If this does not work, the carseat will need inspection and repair by our engineers.

If you're in the UK and the product is under 2 years old, please contact your retailer with your proof of purchase and they can arrange for it to be sent to our engineers for inspection / repair work required under warranty.

If you're in the UK and the product is over 2 years old or you no longer have proof of purchase please contact the customer care team on 01284 413 141 Mon-Thur 08:30-17:30 / Fri 08:30-16:30 (Excluding Bank Holidays) to discuss booking it in for chargeable inspection / repair work required.

If you're outside the UK please visit www.maxi-cosi.com and select the country you're in, then use the "Contact Us" tab on the right side for your enquiry to be sent through to the customer care team in your country.

Can you re thread straps on maxi cosi tobi?


Hi

Due to the safety implications of this being incorrectly done it should not be attempted at home. The carseat needs to come in for our engineers to re-thread the harness and ensure it is performing as it should be.

Please visit www.maxi-cosi.com and select the country you're in, then use the "Contact Us" tab for your enquiry to go through to the customer care team in your country who can provide further assistance.

Maxi cosi tobi strap has jammed


It's not possible to loosen the belts of your Tobi?In this case you may need a repair of the quick-adjuster (the part where the buckle is attached to) or it may be appropriate to exchange the quick-adjuster.
Because this part is directly affecting the safety of the seat I would advise you not to try to repair it yourself; please visit a Maxi Cosi dealer to have it serviced.
I hope this helps.

Hi, i cannot get my maxi cosi to recline. can you offer any help with ideas?


Hi Lorna - Most commonly this issue is caused by dirt/debris getting caught in the tensioning strap of the harness and gradually pulled into the mechanism of the carseat over time. First recommendation is to remove carseat from the car and remove cover (do not remove harness system from seat) give the carseat fabric and the seat itself a clean and see whether this improves the recline situation. If not, please contact your customer services department - if you're in the UK this is 01284 413 141 Mon-Fri 8.30-4.30

Hi, Make sure that when you go to loosen the shoulder straps that the **** strap is pulled toward you, otherwise you cannot make the shoulder straps loosen, this is a safety feature. Hope this helps.
