How to Remove a Graco Car Seat From Base

November 25, 2023

Graco car seat bases are an excellent way to keep your child safe when they're in the vehicle. They help to keep them secure so that they won't be able to escape during a collision. However, it can be challenging to remove a Graco car seat from the base if you don't know how to do so. This article will help you to understand how to do it safely so that your child can enjoy riding in the car.

First, you need to lift the carrier handle to an upright position. Then, locate the lever button or release handle positioned behind the car seat. Press or pull this with both hands to free the car seat from the base. Make sure that the front locking bar on the base is in alignment with the car seat's base locks.

Once the car seat is loose, you can begin to take off the canopy by undoing any straps or Velcro closures that attach it to the base. Locate the LATCH connectors on the bottom of the car seat and press the release buttons located on both. Then, lift the car seat up and away from the base.

Next, locate the bolts holding the car seat to the base and loosen them with a screwdriver. Once they are loose, you can remove the car seat and put it back on the base. Just be sure to use a screwdriver that is the correct size for your specific model.
