    SureFit straps

    I have a SureFit for my baby and it seems like the straps are harder to adjust than they should be. It's fine loosening them, but tightening then after my son is in the seat is kind of difficult. Is there a way to fix that? Something to clean or something? It's an older seat, but doesn't expire until December, so it's like to continue using it.

    Re: SureFit straps

    I assume rear facing? I haven't used a Sure Fit but I generally pull the harness tight by grabbing the straps at the back of the seat and pulling them tight, then pulling the harness adjuster strap after. It makes hard seats easier.
