Convertible Car Seat

We just purchased a S1 by safety 3 in 1 car seat and so far so good. For some reason it seems like the strap to pull to tighen all of the straps gets stuck and it's hard to pull on. If you have this seat, have you had this issue before?

We also need another convertible for our 08 corolla. This is a smaller car and all of the car seats seem so big to fit.

Anyone have any suggestions for smaller cars? This is the 2nd car, so she isn't in it as much and want something comfortable, but not going to break the bank.

This is an issue with this seat - check to see if the straps got twisted in the back, then see if the metal spiltter plate got hooked up on the adjustment bar.

That's not what I'm asking.

How do you have the S1 installed? FF or RF?

If it's RF, try pulling the straps to tighten them from the back first then pull the center strap near the feet, as Chris pointed out the splitter plate may be getting stuck on the bar
