Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose), my normal schedule online is around lunch and after dinner past midnight.

Would removing the headrest resolve this concern?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
Nope. Its too tight to slip over even if I got the headrest off

How did you get into this mess?

Would removing the buckle help?

I wrapped it around the headrest for my daughter cause she said it was s too tight but I didn't remove it from headrest before I buckled her

Before IUN buckled hef
Expert:  Chris (aka- Moose) replied 11 months ago.

So now it is unbuckled and just wrapped around the headrest, correct?

It looks like removing the seat belt retractor is the only way to get you some slack, do you agree?

I do not understand why removing the head rest will not free it up?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
my headrest will come off but the the 2 poles that support the headrest and attach it to the seat itself, are perm attached to the seat, not headrest, so i would still need to slip the sea tbelt over the 2 poles and it wont go that high

okay, hold on... let me actuallyTRY it first just to make sure. lol
Customer: replied 11 months ago.
i can find out how to remove on youtube, im assuming...right?'
Expert:  Chris (aka- Moose) replied 11 months ago.

I have all the steps, I am just trying to get all the info I can being I have never seen this predicament.

The headrest bars are part of the head rest, not the seat. There is one button you press with your finger and another you press with a screwdriver on the other pole to allow pulling the headrest up and off. Let me know if that does not resolve the concern.
