    Chase- is chest clip replaceable?

    I have someone with a 3 yo 33 pound child in a chase. The chest clip is broken, but the seat is not expired. If she gets a "new" seat it will be a booster. (Dorel voyager I think is what the other cpst sold this lady for her 5 yo.) Can the chest clip be removed and replaced on the chase?

    Not 100% sure but could you get the chest clip off and just use the seat without it if you can't replace it?

    I'm not sure but I think it is removable. I have one that is expired (just expired in Dec) from my nephew that I just put up in the attic yesterday to wait for the BRU trade in event. I can get it down on Monday and check if you would like.
    Would using the buckle off of an expired seat be a bad thing? If not I could send it to you. It was used a few years ago for ds2 for about 6 months and then sat in my closet until last summer when I gave the seat to my BIL for my nephew until he was booster ready.
