Uninstall snugride base

Hi,
I installed the snugride base using latches, which obviously is very tight and has no slack. Now I can't figure out how to loosen the latches to un-install the base.

Any help is appreciated.

The straps should have a release buckle, just pull it really hard while the carseat is removed. Its a lot easier if you put all your weight on the base like kneeling down on it while pushing the release buckle toward the crease of the seat and alternating weight on the base. Good Luck, and remember, you can always cut and replace the belt if necessary!!:)

DO GRACO SNUGRIDE INFANT CAR SEAT BASES WORK WITH A DIFFERENT MODEL?


Some do, some don't.

From Graco's web site:

What base will work with my car seat?

We have designed many of our car seats to work with more than one base, for your convenience. Please see the chart here for Classic Connect models.
The SnugRide Click Connect 30, 35, 35LX and 40 infant car seat carriers are compatible with any SnugRide Click Connect infant car seat base. Consumers should adhere to the height and weight requirements for the SnugRide Click Connect infant car seat carriers as stated in their owner's manual; however, the SnugRide Click Connect 40 infant car seat carrier is restricted to a height limit of 32 inches when used with a SnugRide Click Connect 30, 35 or 35LX base.

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.

Trouble removing snugride base from car


If the base was installed by someone who put their body weight on it to get it really tight, try to do the following:

If you are able, climb in the car and place your knee in the center of the seat base and put your weight onto it. Then, at the same time, try to pinch the clip end of the latch belt (the strap part that is attached to the car seat base) and push the clip away from you (toward the seat) to remove it from the metal latch loop/ring (the part of the latch system that's actually part of your car).

If this doesn't work, you can try to loosen the strap a little while leaning on the base, and then try to push the clip forward and out of the latch ring.

Cannot tighten graco snugride in my toyota sequoia


Does your Pilot or Sequoia have leather seats? It seems its harder to get them to tighten right on leather. If it is leather, trying getting a seat saver from BabysRUs. They will give you more friction when tighting. Also tr!physically kneeling on the base when installing. I know it sounds crazy but if you shift your weight from side to side its much easier to tighten down. Good Luck|!

Safe Seat stuck to base


Ok. You should be able to put your weight on the base to create some slack in the strap. Then push the release buckle and alternate your weight to pull the strap and loosen. Then you'll have enough room to manipulate the improperly installed latch.

Graco Snugride Infant Car Seat


HI! I've had 3 babies and alwyas use the Sungride! My presonal trick......First, be sure to roll up a towel (try different sizes for the perfect fit) and push it under by the seat crease (where the back cushion and seat cushion meet). Then, when you are pulling the belt to make it tighter, put your knee in it to add some weight and really get it tightened! I'm sure you'll notice a world of difference! :)

The Latch Tether difficult to tighten


Could you use the LATCH belt from the last seat that you used when your child was smaller? All the LATCH belts I have seen look the same.
