Do you know where I can find installation instructions for a Rhoade Gear (by Bell Sports, Inc.) toddler seat? It is a seat to go on the back of my bike. I've been doing google searches and just can't seem to find this info. The seat was made in '01.

hello, your best bet is to call Bell themselves and give them your model (or model number if you can locate it on the seat) and they can provide you with a manual. you will not be able to find the manual online. here is their phone number:Bell Sports Inc 1-800-456-2355
There are bolts underneath the seat (also called "guts") that you will need to loosen with a crescent wrench. You will want to loosen the two bolt on either side underneath the seat. You don't need to completely remove these bolts, just loosen them. Then the seat should just lift off of the seat post. Then just do the same thing to put the seat back on.
Contact the company they have the obligation to send you a manual and let you know if the seat has been recalled. The number for the company should be right on the seat on a sticker, if not look it up online. You can also go to you local fire department and they will show you how to properly install your seat.
Go to the Britax website www.britax.co.uk, find your model of car seat and then you can print the installation instructions off. I just did it for my Britax First Class Plus car seat (which is 6 yrs old) but installation still the same as the newer model. Good luck!
nicole...if you cannot locate the car seat and this is a suggestion for others that have car seats.... even if you have the instructions... stop at the local police station, fire dept or health unit in your area. they are more then happy to help you make sure the car seat is installed properly. i know in my country (canada) that they have four or five baby seat "cliinics" to assist in making sure that car seats are properly installed.

The best instructions I have found (as I have the same car seat!) were on YouTube. These instructions are really clear as they are in video format and they show you how to fit the seat in both the lie fat and rear facing mode.
In terms of the harness, you may or may not be aware that there a number of adjustments that can be made. The first is that you are able to adjust the positioning of the straps within the seat so that the child is not overhanging the seat. In addition the straps themselves lengthen by adjustment with the buckles on the straps.
I think all of these adjustments are in the instruction manual, which is available on line from the manufacturer if you have lost it.
Hope this helps!
