Steps on installing a rear-facing car seat with seatbelt

Step 1. Install the seat using a lap and shoulder belt. In order to do this, pull up on the latch plate until it clicks into place in the buckle. 

Step 2. The end of your car’s seat belt should be threaded through both sides of the lower LATCH strap or around each side of the retractable upper tether anchor depending on how you installed it previously.

Step 3. Check for tightness by trying to pinch excess webbing at a diagonal angle between two fingers with all slack removed from within five inches of where you are pinching.

If necessary, adjust as needed so that when closed there is no more than one inch per strap in excess webbing after tightening down securely again .

 

How do you remove a safety first car seat from the base?

You will want to remove the base from your car, but first make sure that you have disconnected all of the parts and pieces. This includes moving any latch straps and attaching them back together in a separate location, like inside of an empty cup holder or behind a seat cushion.

You should also unbuckle each belt strap on both sides as well as detach any infant carrier handlebars. If possible, try to move anything attached with adhesives such as stickers before removing it from its slot (most likely at bottom).

Gently lift up one end while lifting other side off of its hole by pulling outwards until it falls free without force so not to cause damage or break something else.

Now safely set aside somewhere where there is no chance someone can trip on it or where there is no chance of someone tripping over the exposed latch straps.

 

How do you Restrap a Safety 1st car seat?

The safety seat should be securely fastened in the car using a three-point harness and/or LATCH system. Make sure that your child’s feet do not touch the back of the seat or buckle area while they are seated, especially if their legs bend at odd angles when they sit up straight.

If you’re unsure about any aspect of how to properly install your car seat, consult with an expert such as a police officer or firefighter for help on this matter.

Some examples include: consulting online communities like Child Seat Safety (CSS), asking friends who may have some experience, calling local fire stations and reading forums including one from AAA which has several articles regarding proper installation.

When you make use of these resources it is advised that you don’t remove the child safety seat from your car while it is being inspected. And, unless you are speaking to someone in person, make sure to double check all of the information that you receive through these resources.

If an officer tells you something different than what another officer told you previously (or even directions provided by CSS), consult with a third party who has experience or knowledge on this matter before following any advice given.

 

How do you change a safety first car seat to forward-facing?

To change a safety first car seat to forward-facing, you’ll need: A new car seat in the right position. The lap belt and shoulder strap of your child’s current safety first car seat. Your vehicle owner’s manual (optional).

The lap belt should be just above your baby’s hips, not across her tummy or neck.

Step 1. To get started, read over all of the instructions included with your new convertible carseat before installing it into your vehicle. If possible have installation help from another person while doing this process for added convenience and security.

Step 2. Open up both sides of the rear facing tether which is located at either side of the headrest on top where it meets together by pulling outwards on the latch.

Step 3. Be sure to have your child in their current safety first car seat facing backwards with both straps securely around them and buckle them into place, making sure that they are nice and snug so they do not move easily or wiggle out of position while you are doing this process for added security.

Step 4. Tighten the shoulder strap by pulling it upwards along its route until it is pulled tight against your baby’s chest/shoulder area which will help keep him upright during any type of collision movements.

Place the new convertible carseat at a 45° angle pointing towards the rear end of your vehicle which should be located right behind where you need to push down hard on get yourself seated comfortably inside safely before closing and locking up the door and start driving.

Now that your safety first car seat is securely fitted into position, pull outwards on both sides of the rear facing tether located at either side which should be tightened up to secure it in place firmly against the headrest.

Step 5. Connect both ends of each strap from your child’s current safety first car seat by feeding them through their designated openings as you tighten them upwards just slightly above where they were before so they do not rub against their skin or poke through which can cause irritation while moving around for added security and comfortability during any type of collisions occurring during a drive if needed too.

Step 6. Tighten up all four harness straps once again until they are nice and snug but not too tight which can cause discomfort and injury for your child during any type of collisions occurring while driving.

 Check all buckles after you have finished tightening up the harness straps to make sure that they are fitting securely into place firmly against their body as this is where most injuries occur if needed too such as cuts, bruises or even broken bones in some cases depending on the level of collision involved during a drive.

Step 7. Finally, attach both ends of each shoulder strap from your safety first car seat by feeding them through their designated openings until tightened upwards just slightly above where they were before so they do not rub against their skin or poke through which can cause irritation and/or injury during a collision for added security and comfortability once again.

Place your child in their new safety first car seat facing forward which you should be able to do easily now that your tether strap is loosened up.

Step 8. Tighten the shoulder straps by pulling upwards along its route until it is pulled tight against their chest/shoulder area which will help keep them upright during any type of collision movements if needed too.

m) Now buckle your child into place with both buckles securely fitting firmly around them, making sure that they are nice and snug so they cannot move or wiggle out of position while seated inside for added security once again.
