This post is going to teach you how to separate a Graco car seat from the base. How long have you been struggling with this problem, and are sick of being frustrated? It may seem like an easy task, but for some reason, it’s proving more difficult than you expected. This article will help!
How do you Take an infant Car Seat out of the Base?
First, loosen the Velcro straps on both the infant carrier and base. The straps are located in the spots that match where your fingers would be if you were holding them up to look inside of a carrot.
Then take hold of one strap from each side with two hands, gently pull apart in opposite directions until they snap out of their slots, and set it down next to itself so that it stays put when not being used.
Move onto loosening the other strap (be sure to do this after removing any velcro residue near or around the car seat). How easy was that? After all four straps have been removed—one at a time–you can now easily lift your Graco baby car seat right off! And don’t forget to place the base right side up.
Steps on How to Separate a Graco Car Seat from the Base
Step 1. First, remove the car seat from its base. You will need to use both hands for this step.
Step 2. One hand can be used to hold the handle of the Graco car seat that you are removing and one or two fingers on your other hand should push down near where it says “PUSH” to release a lever holding the bar into place. Continue pushing until the lever releases fully.
Step 3. Now pull up on the Graco carseat using both hands as if you were lifting it off of an invisible tabletop with enough force so that it releases completely out of its cradle aka base (note: only do this when there is no baby inside).
Step 4. After successfully separating your Graco Car Seat from its Base, you can now store it away in a closet, behind the seat of your vehicle or anywhere else that is convenient for you.
How do you Disassemble a Graco Toddler car Seat?
One, remove the shoulder strap and slide it out from under the armrests.
Now if your toddler has not yet reached 40 pounds or more (check with manufacturer), then go ahead and take off any harness straps as well.
Next, pull down on both sides of the buckle until they release fully; this will allow you to disengage all four buckles which connect at two points near each corner of where the base meets up against the top part. From there, disconnecting them should be an easy peasy lemon squeezy! You can then use the straps to hang up your Graco Toddler car Seat on a hook or in any other convenient location, like a vehicle or anywhere else that is for you.
If your toddler has reached 40 pounds or more (check with manufacturer), then proceed as follows:
Disengage and remove all four buckles which connect at two points near each corner of where the base meets up against the top part by pulling down on both sides of the buckle until they release fully.

How do you take apart a Graco Click Connect car seat?
There are two ways that this can be done, with the harness straps or without. With your child’s safety in mind, it is always better to use the harness when removing them from their seats so we will go over how to disconnect and reattach the buckle on your back of the seat first.
The upper part of the connector should come off easily if pulled upwards while pulling down at each side near where the base meets up against the top part by pulling down on both sides of the seat.
If this does not work try pulling up on one side of the connector while pushing down from the opposite site and then pulling upwards. This should release it enough to get a grip with your fingers or pliers, depending on what is at hand when removing them.
The lower part may also prove difficult if you are using that method for separating as well so go ahead and pull at each loop connecting both straps until they come apart allowing you access to remove it completely without breaking any plastic pieces off inside.
