    Default Baby loosening car seat strap

    So I have a problem!!!

    My 8 month old has worked out how to loosen the harness in her car seat. She kicks the harness release button and pushes the straps loose.

    What can I do? I'm scared to drive her any where.

    Please help!

    Do you mean the tether? She's still rearfacing I assume?

    If it is the tether adjuster she's kicking depending on the restraint it may be possible to move the adjuster closer to the restraint to get it away from her reach.

    Default Baby loosening car seat strap

    It's the harness that she's loosening. It's a Britax Safe-n-Sound Platinum Pro SICT. She's still rear facing. There is a button to release the harness where her feet are. And she likes kicking it. I didn't think she would actually loosen the straps until I got her out of the car this morning and they were super loose. She either pulled the straps or strained forward putting pressure on them, while kicking the harness release button.

    Oh wow, sorry I have no idea! There is a child restraints facebook page that has a lot of fitters and educated members who should be able to give you advice though.

    Could it be a faulty seat perhaps?

    She's a super strong baby... It wouldn't surprise me if she could!! She has also gotten out of her pram straps and her zip-up sleeping bag. She's a reincarnation of Houdini.

    It also wouldn't surprise me if there was a fault - it would be just my luck as the previous one I brought was the Maxi-Cosi Euro and it was recalled for doing this very thing 🙄

    I'll have a play around with it tomorrow and see how easy it is to replicate what I think happened.
