    Anybody wanna trade straps or have some to sell?

    I am in need of different colored straps to go on my MA. I currently have Navy Blue straps with the Navy Hugs. This just will not look right the Cowmoo cover that is on the way~Thx Lisa~! I would like to see if someone would like to trade for a set of tan, grey, or black or if someone had some extras they would like to sell? I can post pics of the the Navy straps if you would like, but they are in excellent condition! Thanks!

    Re: Anybody wanna trade straps or have some for sell?

    You just missed the 'co-op' to order Britax parts. But anyway, just so you know...

    I have a brand new MA with black strap set and wanted to buy/swap a set of beige for my AF and Foofy, but found out that the only way we can replace the adjustor strap is to cut it. And I didn't want to 'waste' a perfectly new adjustor strap, kwim?

    Are you thinking of replacing the adjustor and buckle as well?

    Re: Anybody wanna trade straps or have some for sell?

    Yes, I was wanting to change out the buckle and adjuster strap. I easily removed the old adjuster strap from my Husky to replace it with the new one without cutting it out. Could I not do that with the MA?

    Is it a replaced from the recall adjuster strap? If not the end will be sewn and not removable without cutting

    Re: Anybody wanna trade straps or have some for sell?

    Yes, it was the recall replacement strap that I put on it. I have never changed straps on Britax seats before so any advice would be helpful in what to do about changing the colors. Thanks!

    Re: Anybody wanna trade straps or have some for sell?

    You can buy a new adjuster strap in grey or tan for about $12 I think you have to call though. You'll probably be able to reuse the navy adjuster but someone else won't be able to trade you unless they have a recall replacement one too...does that make sense? The harness and buckles will be easy to swap out though.

    With shipping this could run you $40 ish to replace harness, adj. and hugs if you bought alk new

    Re: Anybody wanna trade straps or have some for sell?

    Ok, Thanks! I looked on Britax's website and seen where the various parts could be ordered. If I can find someone to swap the straps and hugs then all I would need to order is the adjuster and belt clip right?

    Re: Anybody wanna trade straps or have some for sell?

    Ok, checked everything into a cart on Britax that I would need to change the colors and with tax(since I live in NC) it will cost me $53 for everything including shipping. Is that bad?

    Re: Anybody wanna trade straps or have some for sell?

    New straps and a new cover cost about 1/2 what a whole seat will cost during the upcoming sale..aigh! We should buy up whole seats and sell them as parts It's like cars!

    Re: Anybody wanna trade straps or have some for sell?

    The harness straps and the buckle are easily to replace w/o cutting anything. It's the adjustor strap with the thick stitched end that need cutting to be able to thread it through the adjustor mechanism.

    I'm told the replacement strap we buy from Britax would be longer to prevent slippage through the adjustor mechanism. And it has a flat end (no stitches).

    Thanks! Maybe I can find someone who has a set with the buckle, straps, and hugs so all I will need to do is buy a replacement for the adjuster. Hope I get lucky if not I will just try to save up the dough and purchase everything new.

    Re: Anybody wanna trade straps or have some for sell?

    Are you wanting to sell the black strap set? The navy set that is currently on my MA was to the Foofy cover. I sold the cover to buy a boyish one for DS #4. The Foofy was a friend of mine's and she had 2 twin girls. LMK and Thx.

    I had a lady who would swap a beige set for my black but I didn't want to cut the black adjustor strap (and it would be come useless to her and I), so I'll be keeping the black set.

    Figure the black straps and Ashley Floral would be too racy, eh?

    I have this set I bought about 9-10 months ago. I used it a couple of weeks and then it has been sitting in a closet for the rest of the time. I don't have a chest clip: I stole it to put on my radian
