    My son gets out of the shoulder restraints. What do I do?

    We own a 5 point harness carseat. My son is constantly getting out of the shoulder restraints by sliding down the latching part by the chest enuogh to get his arms out. His lower body is still restrained but the carseat would not work properly in the event of an accident. Does anyone have any idea of what I can do?

    Hi,

    My first thought is that the harness straps are not tight enough. You should only be able to get one finger between the harness strap and the child's collar bone.

    HTH, if not, please post back,
