Start pulling the seat belt of the vehicle just out of the retractor. Make sure you do it gently. Once it is out, you will listen to a click sound.
Now, it’s time to feed the slack of the belt back into the seat retractor. If you feel that it is not working accordingly, you should refer to the car manual again. Some of the vehicles already have a button for switching between the modes.
Start pulling the seat belt strap in an upward direction and feed it in a way that ultimately turns out as a rigid one. In this way, if your car faces any crash, the belt won’t move from its place. It will enable the car seat to stay at its place firmly through the latch connector.
