Have you noticed that it’s become more common for RF-only car seat instructions to allow European belt routing (aka, Euro-routing) for baseless installations? If a car seat model allows this method, but the vehicle belt appears to be too short, try this technique.
- Route the lap portion of the belt through the CR belt path guides (across the child’s leg area), but don’t buckle the belt yet.
- Wrap the shoulder portion of the belt around the back of the CR (following model-specific instructions, if any, for using a guide on the back of the CR shell).
- Buckle the belt, and then complete installation, as instructed, by setting the CR to the proper angle and tightening the belt.
