    Nextfit fit issues

    Please, I really need some help.
    I just purchased a Nextfit for my 2 1/2 year old son with the hope that he can remain rearfacing for another couple of years. (He just outgrew his Britax Boulevard.)

    I love the seat until I install it and try to use it. I get a nice tight fit in my car and have it reclined on the second RF position. When I sit my son in it I am presented with an either-or situation; either the harness straps are at his shoulders and the top of his head is level with the top of the headrest OR the straps are well above his shoulders and there is sufficient room above his head. I don't know what to do! Am I doing something wrong, or will this seat just not work for my little guy?
    Also, when I tried to tighten the harness, it would not budge. I could not get it to tighten at all! I've read about some people having an issue with that, but they usually say that it's "difficult to tighten," not impossible! What do I need to do differently?

    I want to know if anyone else is having/has had these issues and what they've done to resolve them (or perhaps I'm just doing it all wrong?).
    If this seat won't work for us, what are some other suggestions?

    I'll appreciate any help I can get to figure this all out. He needs a seat ASAP!
    Thanks.
