    Corolla and child safety seats

    I have just purchased a 1999 Toyota Corolla. If I
    had only known the trouble I would have getting my
    child's car seat safely positioned in the back seat. I
    have tried everything and now I'm stuck driving around
    with my 2 1/2 yr old daughter sitting in the back seat
    like a ticking time bomb. If I get in an accident she
    won't stand a chance.The center belt is a shoulder/lap
    belt when it should only be a lap belt. What kind of
    engineers design these cars. Do they not have any
    children??? Please someone help me!!!

    • got what you paid for

    • off to see the wizard ,hey scammy

    • Although I own a Previa I believe that the Toyota
      seat belts are similar.

      Although the shoulder
      belt is a pain in the *** if you pull it all the way
      out and then let it retract it will automatically
      lock. That is, it will not extend any more until it is
      released all the way. Second you may need to get one of
      those anoying "H" connectors. Most child seats come
      with them nowadays. You will need to use the connector
      to hold the shoulder and lap belts together. Now, I
      bleieve there is some form of head restraint belt lock
      (no idea what the real name is). It supposed to be an
      anchor point to keep the top of the seat rolling forward
      in a rapid stop (accident).

      the older seats
      may not have the "H" connector for the seat belt, or
      the head strap thingie. Not much you can do about

      I hope this helps. If not, you could always go to a
      state police barracks, and they will be able to help
      you out with ideas, etc.
