SUPER long belt stalks and AOE Rfing

OK I am trying to help a friend install her to AOE rfing in a old chrysler.

the problem is the belt stalks are super long - even with three twists the locking clip is leaning on the plastic.

there is no latch

does any one have any ideas?

If we don't twist the stalks the locking clip is inside the seat but at least everything is lying flat? is that the better way to go?

The locking clip can be inside the seat as long as it is no more than 1 inch from the buckle and the buckle is not on the edge. So if it goes buckle, edge of belt path (which belt bends over), locking clip-- that's okay.

We also found that if you use three pool noodles in a pyramid shape under the foot area of the carseat, you'll raise up the seat some and hopefully w/that and the three twists, it will pull it out of the belt path.

And it wasn't overreclined? Did you have the base off?

Which brings up a question-- OP, did YOU have the base off?
