    Chicco KeyFit30 overhang of base?

    I can't find my manual... its around here somewhere.....

    I originally had installed my KF with LATCH but I need to use the seatbelt for a few weeks as we have family visiting and with the LATCH install it makes no room for a person to fit between the 2 car seats I have installed.

    With LATCH there was no overhang, but with the seatbelt install (and because I moved the seat base over) a small part of the base is hanging off the seat because the seat is curved.

    Is this OK?





    TIA

    That's fine. 80% of the base needs to be on the seat. You've got much more than that.

    Thanks!! I was 'hoping' that was the case and as you can see its a tiny tiny corner that isn't on the seat!

    Panic attack over!
