LATCH-compatible carseat:I am not a monkey. I will not blindly follow directions. Oooh! a banana!
Follow the manufacturer's instructions.
Use the appropriate LATCH belt paths; i.e., use the rear-facing LATCH belt path for a rear-facing installation and the forward-facing LATCH belt path for a forward-facing installation.Well duh. Of course you use the rear-facing LATCH belt path for a rear-facing installation. I mean, what kind of idiot... oh mother hugger! I put the base on backwards... Actually it's upside down... how did that.. wait... this isn't even the base... its just the box the car seat came in... ah.. here is the actual base... hhmmm.. which way is this supposed to go again??
Read your vehicle's instruction manual carefully to determine where you may install the carseat. LATCH may not be available in the center.Manuals?!? Don't make me laugh. Ha. ha. ha. Too late! you already did. I am a man. I don't need no stinking manuals! Ok. So not in the middle. It has to be on the left or right. Let's see. The left hand makes the L.
|Uh oh. now I'm confused...|
Snap the hooks down firmly onto the vehicle's LATCH anchors and verify they are correctly connectedOk. First I need to find the LATCH anchors. It says here there are under a button. A button that looks like... a baby going down a slide?!?! That makes no sense.
Pull the belt(s) tight so that the carseat moves less than 1" when you tug on it at the belt path. Press down or put weight on the seat as you pull the belt tight.This is actually the hard part. You need to kneel on the car seat and tug the bejesus out of that strap. It helps if you paint half your face blue and yell out FREEEEEEEEEEEEDOM! as you pull the strap.
