seat belt buckle webbing shortening

Found 29th Aug 2010
We have a car that has long webbing in it.

We are unable to afford a new car or secand hand car

We are stuggling to find a seat that will fit out child who is now 3 years 7 months for when she hits the maximum weight of her current seat.

We have a Demio from Mazda, i have tried emailing mazda but they dont reply....

Has any one got any advice

can u get a isofix base. or a autobase (graco). u will need a compatible chair with it though and need to make sure ur car has isofix points.

we had a look for iso fix points but it dont have them.

I go a funny hook on the back of the chair with a fabric strap that hooks on to its self in the book on the back of the left hand side, not sure what this is for.

Halfords and Mothercare fit seats for free. May be worth popping in to ask.

i did ask but the woman said try some of the fit finders and none of the ones that use the 3 point harness would fit she said as the webbing on the buckle when the belt is pulled tight moves across and gets longer
I don't understand the problem? Are you saying the issue is that your seatbelts are too long?
the description reminds me of DLM's infamous one line per sentence format.

this bit the webbing is to long when the belt gets tightened

basically causes buckle crunch with nearly all seats we have the britax fist class si i think it is, but the it wont be long before she will be out of the seat sooon,

I am a little confused by this but at her age can you not use a booster type seat. As long as she is 15 kg she can have a booster.Surely any type of belt will fit these. I would pop to a Mazda garage if they are not emailing back.

she keeps on stiking her arms in and out of of the seat
She will stop after a short time. Just stop the car everytime she does. Get one with a back on much safer. Or try one of the 1,2,3 ones which have a harness and then can be a booster. Not sure how compatible they are with your seatbelt though
Hi try, they will safely shorten the webbing
I think the britax first class si is suitible until aprox 4 yrs old - so will it not be a group 2 booster seat your looking for now?
