Problems tightening maxi Cosi priori fix car seat harness

Hi,

The harness should be pulled directly out from the carseat - it's easy to pull it up, or to the side, but this will effect how well you can tension the harness.

Its also worth giving the carseat a good vacuuming out, as any crumbs lodged in the tensioning unit can also make using the harness very difficult - regardless of whether your child eats in the seat, somehow there are always crumbs in there!

If none of this helps, the seat should come to our engineers for inspection. If you're in the UK and its under 2 years old, please contact your retailer with proof of purchase: If you're in the UK and its over 2 years old or you no longer have proof of purchase, please contact the customer care team on 01284 413 141 Mon-Thur 8.30-6.30 / Fri 8.30-4.30 (Excluding Bank Holidays) Chargeable inspection starts at 39.99GBP and this does include courier collection & delivery of the unit. If you're not in the UK, please visit www.maxi-cosi.com, select the country you're in and choose the "Contact Us" tab on the right side of the screen to be put in touch with the customer care team in your country.

Ive pushed button and straps on my maxi cosy cabrio car seat will not loosen, help??

Hi

When you press the silver / grey button at the front of the carseat you should pull both harness straps at the same time and it should loosen the harness. If this is not happening the carseat needs to be inspected. Please contact your retailer with proof of purchase if it is under 12 months old. Alternatively please let us know what country you're in and we can put you in touch with the correct customer care team to assist.

My Child is jumping out of the Straps (even it's tight enough)

Children are copy-cats. They watch your every move so closely and repeat it to see what happens when they do it. You're aware of them doing it a lot of the time - many people avoid swearing in front of their children, some people don't like arguing in front of them, you allow them to see you using the loo and brushing your teeth by way of encouragement of what they need to learn.

So what about when they copy the bad stuff? Stuff that we, as parents, need to do, but stuff that they really shouldn't. Stuff like opening the oven, pouring boiling water from the kettle, opening the buckle of their harness on their carseat.

Well, it's down to parental guidance: "Don't touch the oven", "Don't play with the kettle", "Don't undo the carseat harness". Most often than not, you'll follow up that statement with a reason - "Don't touch the oven - it's hot, and it might burn you". It's the same with the carseat harness buckle - you have to provide a reason why it's important for them not to undo it.

There are various pages set up on the internet to help parents with techniques for discouraging children from undoing their carseat harness; Tips such as making it into a game, demonstrating to them how everyone must wear a seatbelt and explaining the importance for it on a level that the child can understand, whether they're a curious toddler or a bored six year old. In addition, distraction techniques can be helpful, and for younger children the Maxi Cosi PlayTray will fit onto all the Group 1 carseats in the range, providing not just entertainment but also making it more difficult to access the red release button.

The Maxi Cosi carseat range requires a pressure of 60 Newtons of force to open it. This is the maximum allowed under UK safety law so we can't make it any harder to undo. To make it more difficult for the child to undo the harness, always ensure that the harness is adjusted to the appropriate height for their shoulders (it should be no more than an inch above or below their shoulder height) and also check before every journey that the harness has been properly tensioned. You should only be able to fit 2 fingers between the childs chest and the harness once it is correctly tensioned as per the user manual. While the child may not like being restrained in the carseat harness, you aren't hurting them by ensuring it's correctly tightened before each journey, and you must remember in the event of an accident you want the harness to be nice and secure to prevent them flopping around in the carseat.
The harness must be completely released by a single, red push button. This is the universally recognised seatbelt and carseat release button, and in the event of an emergency if someone other than yourself needs to get the child out of the carseat quickly they need to be able to do so easily and without specific guidance from yourself on how to do it, so adding things to the harness is not advised and some additional chest clips are in fact not legal for use under UK law.

If you're on a long journey and the child falls asleep, you may find that the harness appears looser on them than it did when you first set off - this is as they've relaxed, and as the harness is not self-retracting like an adult seat belt it may become loose as their posture changes in the seat. In this event, if you were to have an accident at this point, the harness would prevent the child from moving any further forward from the position they were originally in; the carseat harness has not loosened off at all. In the event that you're concerned about the amount of additional gap when the child falls asleep, pull over when it is safe to do so and give the tensioner strap that extra pull to remove the slack. If you're not sure that you are able to fit the carseat and tension the harness correctly, please refer to the website for video demonstrations on fitting the carseat, or ask your local retailer for a refresher lesson in how to correctly fit and tension it.

These sites are worth having a look at if you encounter the issue of your child trying to get out of the harness, whether they are releasing the red button or attempting to slip out of the harness any other way:

If the harness is broken or damaged the carseat should not be used until the harness is replaced.

If you're not in the UK please go to www.quinny.com and select the country you're in, then go to "Contact Us" to be put in touch with your local customer service department.

If you're in the UK and the product is under 2 years old please contact your retailer with proof of purchase and ask them to send the carseat to our engineers to replace the harness under the terms and conditions of the 2 year warranty.

If you're in the UK and the product is over 2 years old or you do not have proof of purchase please contact the customer service department direct on 01284 413 141 Mon-Fri 8.30-4.30 to discuss booking it in and costs.

Broke the plastic button which release's the straps on my cosi maxi can i buy another one - dont want to buy a new car seat??

Good Evening

The red button is not something available as a spare part that can be sent out for customers to replace themselves due to the safety implications of it being incorrectly fitted; to replace this button the carseat needs a new harness, which must be fitted by our engineers. If your carseat is under 2 years old this is still covered by the warranty, please return the carseat to your retailer with your proof of purchase and they will make arrangements for it to be sent to our engineers for full inspection and any repair work required (in this instance, a replacement harness will be fitted). After full safety checks the carseat will be sent back. Alternatively if the carseat is over 2 years old or you do not have your proof of purchase please contact our customer service department on 01284 413141 (Mon - Fri, 8:30 am to 4:30 pm) and the standard charge for repair is £50 which includes courier delivery of the carseat back to your address; in addition to this you would need to make arrangements and cover costs for the carseat to be sent to the engineers. Hope this helps! Thanks :)

Broke the push down button to release the seat belts can i get a new button?

Good Evening

The button itself is not an item which can be replaced; to replace this release button you need to replace the entire harness system. For safety reasons this must be done by our qualified engineers.

If the carseat is under 2 years old please return to your retailer with your proof of purchase and ask them to make arrangements for this repair. Following the repair (in this instance, a replacement harness fitted) the carseat will have full safety checks before being returned.

If the carseat is over 2 years old or you do not have your proof of purchase please contact our customer service department on 01284 413141 (Mon - Fri, 8:30 am to 4:30 pm) to book it in for chargeable repair. Standard charge is £50 and this includes courier delivery of the carseat back to your address. In addition to this you will need to make arrangements and cover costs for courier delivery of the carseat into the engineers.

Trying to adjust the child seatbelt harness higher in the carseat

I located my instruction manual for this carseat. It instructed me to turn the carseat over & located on the bottom are two metal brackets that lock the seatbelt harness. You just have to detach each metal bracket & pull through the bottom slots of the carseat, readjust each seatbelt to whatever level is necessary & push back through the bottom of the seat to lock securely. Thanks anyway for your help!
