Question about Baby & Toddler Car Seats

2 Answers

Missing harness I bought Model 02-480-Wal at a yard sale. The latch that the harness fits into is broke so the harness will not stay latched. How can this be fixed? I also have Cosco 02-442 and the harness is missing on it. This was given to me for my grandchild (5 yrs old). Can I get a new harness? I WAS GIVEN A CAR SEAT 02-09C-PEP but it did not come with installation instructions. Does anyone know how to get them?

For the first one you can go to this link http://www.coscojuvenile.com/instructions/ and download the instructions, which at the end will have a parts order list, from which you can order the latch parts and the harness for the second one from there as well. you will need the model number and manufacture date on both to obtain this info and those numbers should be on the back of the seats it appears that all three are cosco car seats and you can obtain the needed parts and manuals needed.

although i will add this disclaimer, i would never never trust a car seat from a rummage sale, because you can not trust the person selling to be honest with you as to whether it was in an accident or not, if it was it may look fine, but it could have small stress fractures invisible to the human eye that could make it fail in an accident, killing or severely injuring your grandchild

also if the child is 5yrs old my better question for you would be is he over 38" tall and over 40lbs??? If so he really is to big for these car seats, you can get a booster seat for him, which would run you from 10 - 50 dollars depending on model, all of which are very safe just make sure if you do not have a head rest in the car where you will be using it, as most cars to not have these in the back seat that you get a high back booster seat (i know the first of the three list in your query works as one of these with out the harness the shoulder strap merely gets fed through the slots on the side of the seat above the child's shoulder to ensure proper alignment
if you do have the head rest you can get by with a backless one as the head rest will provide the necessary head and neck support in an accident.

with all said IF YOU DO NOT KNOW AND TRUST THE PEOPLE WHO YOU OBTAINED THESE SEATS FROM YOU CAN NOT KNOW THEY ARE REALLY SAFE AND ACCIDENT FREE
I would not stake any child's life on a used seat unless from a very very trusted source

Cosco Alpha Omega Elite can't get straps back on right!


replace harness: 1) take **** harness and place metel bracket through the base of the seat(slot in shell) make sure buckle is facing out and not inwards. slide metal clip under small tab and push down on clip until it snaps in and locks into place... 2) thread harness without latch plate or harness retainer down through slot on one side of shell, under seat and up through slot on other side. 3) thread latch plate(clip that goes into ****clip)harness retainer onto the harness making sure they are correct. 4) thread harness end through other slot 5) make sure the harness goes over the barbut under the plastic bar, then fit loops on harness ends onto the harness bracket that looks like a triangle(kind of) 6) from the front even up harness to fit properly. And there you go the rest is pretty straight forward the base is pretty sraight forward to attach...

I need to replace the plastic latch on a costco 02-480-WAL car seat. Is there a place to find replacement parts?


I've just had this same issue with an eddie bauer car seat, they are made from the same people. They no longer sell the replacement harness clips in canada for cosco/eddie bauer, you have to contact the company directly. http://www.coscojuvenile.com/can/eng/

Latch when used as booster?


No, boosters are never latched to the car, so when using it as a booster, disregard the latch.
