Does the Diono Monterey convert to backless easily? And the reverse?
We want to be able to use the back on long trips and when she might sleep, but take it off for general riding around town (like a big girl). This means converting fairly frequently, so we'd like to know how big of a PITA that will be. Thanks.
ATTACHING THE BACKREST 1 Lay backrest on flat surface with front facing down. 2 Hold seat bottom facing down. Align seat bottom pivotbar at 90o angle with backrest hooks. Push in to attach seat bottom to backrest. 3 Rotate seat bottom downwards and under back rest until a ‘click’ is heard and the seat shape is formed. REMOVING THE BACKREST Follow above instructions in reverse. Diono includes the following safety information regarding your Diono Monterey Car Seat: Children who weigh 40 lbs (18 kg) or less are best protected in a 5-point harness restraint. Diono recommends that children remain in a 5-point harness restraint until reaching the maximum weight or height allowed. • If the child will not keep the vehicle shoulder belt properly positioned at all imes, DO NOT use a booster seat. You must use a harnessed child restraint.
