Carseat help...Graco Myride 65

Posted by on Dec. 14, 2009 at 7:10 PM

How do you intall the Graco Myride 65 FF? I was testing it out to see what it would look like FF and it doesn't fit FF at all in my car cause the backseat slopes so much it doesn't look like its going to fit.

The back of the carseat does not touch the back of the car. There's a huge gap all the way down.

When I pull the carseat up to make the back of it touch the seat of the car, the bottom of it doesn't even touch the seat of the car.

Suggestions anyone?

I do not think when forward facing you use a pool noodle.  The pool noodle is used to get the proper recline when rear facing. 

I will get a tech or someone that knows a bit more about this seat over here.

You can't use pool noodles when FFing but do you have to have the foot on?  I don't have a manual so I dunno

I just helped the OP in safety. So here is what is wrong.

Sometimes when you install seats like the myride that have a recline like the myride does, you have to put all of your weight into the seat and push against the seat so that the back & the bottom are up against the vehicle seat. What the OP did was just sit the seat in without buckling in with the seatbelt or latch. Once she buckled it in and did what I suggested it fixed the problem. :)

OP will you post a new pic for others to see.

The myrides recline is different. It doesn't have the handle for the recline.

Thanks!  I was just going to suggest that and I saw that the seat was just resting on the seat and not belted in.

Thanks mommabunch!

I did want to correct this to clear up any confusion.

Pool noodles should only be used to help the recline when rear facing NEVER forward facing.

I am not being mean or rude but I just wanted to let others know this is not correct.
