As far as I know this seat is approved by the FAA so you can go on your trip with this car seat and feel safe. If you want to be sure I suggest you drop a visit to the manufacturer site.

How to install a forward facing baby seat in 2005 gmc 2500 pickup truck

If you are able to feed the seat belt through the car seat, latch it then using the weight of your body and your knee in the seat push the car seat down and pull the seat belt out all the way until it stops. Once it starts reeling back in it will make a clicking sound letting you know it is locking. Feed all of the slack back into the reel and the seat will be locked into place.

Hi John

On a carseat the date of manufacture can be found on the safety standard sticker. It depends what country you're in as to what that will look like. Please advise which country you're in so that we can best help.

We'd have to advise you to contact Dorel USA for further assistance. You can e-mail direct to [email protected]

On the back of the carseat shell you will find an orange and white sticker. Take a photo of this sticker and attach it to the e-mail as it will help the customer care advisors to determine which carseat model you have.

I can not find the instruction manual for the carseat. Do you know the height/weight restrictions?

federal regulations state that it should be listed on a sticker on the carseat itself.
