    Getting the Cover off the CA to Wash

    Is there a trick to removing those two clips in the bottom of the seat pad? Cause I cannot get those stupid things to even budge!

    Around the sides of the seat there are elastic loops holding the seat pad in place, have you unhooked those yet? That is the only thing I can think of at the moment.

    BTW handwash on that cover is really a must, IMO. I put mine through our portable washing machine thinking it would be okay because the portable isn't as "rough" ( or as effective) as a regular washing machine, and it frayed pretty badly.

    If you flip the seat over, you will see that you need to squeeze the sides in to get them through the shell. Sometimes a flat-head screwdriver or a butter knife will help. But its definitely not easy.

    Not easy for sure I own three of that seat and I feel for you with those. Someone with arthritis would never be able to get those out.
