Check the car owner’s manual to find out how to use the seat belt in your car.
The car seat will face the front of the car and be upright.
The seat belt will be routed through the forward facing belt path.
Buckle the seat belt and lock the seat belt.
Lock the Seat Belt
Pull the shoulder belt all the way out. You will hear it click when it reaches the end. Let go of it. As the belt shortens, push down on the car seat or base. You can also use your knee to push the car seat into the car. At the same time, pull up on the shoulder belt so that it will lock in place as tightly as possible.
If Your Seat Belt Does Not Lock
Not all seat belts lock. When you pull your seat belt all the way out and let it go, it should shorten, but not lengthen again. If it can be pulled out, it does not lock.
If your car’s seat belts do not lock, you will need to use a locking clip to keep the car seat in place.
Some car seats have belt lock offs on the car seat base – check your car seat instructions for how to use your belt lock offs.
Attach the tether strap to the tether bolt.
Push the car seat into the car with your knee and pull the tether strap tight.
Check to see that the car seat is tight at the spot that it is anchored to the car. Place your hands on each side of the car seat, and try to move the car seat side to side and front to back. The car seat should not move more than one inch (2.5 cm) side to side or front to back. If the car seat moves too much, push down on the car seat harder and pull belt tighter and the tether strap tighter.
If you are using a seat belt do not also use the UAS/Latch system.
