How do I adjust Fllo’s angle when installing it rear-facing?
To increase the recline angle, use the anti-rebound bar to re-position the seat on the vehicle seat so that it is at the correct angle, then press down in the back of the seat area while tightening the vehicle or UAS belt. A gap between the vehicle seat and the recline foot at the vehicle seat crease is permissible. Also, a tightly rolled towel may be placed under the recline foot at the vehicle seat crease if needed to achieve the correct recline angle. Do NOT use pool noodles to adjust the recline angle as this may affect the stability of the installation.
To decrease the recline angle, use the anti-rebound bar to re-position the seat on the vehicle seat so that it is sitting more upright, then press down on the front edge of the seat while tightening the vehicle or UAS belt. Do NOT place anything between the angled portion of the base and the vehicle seat to obtain a more upright installation. The angled portion of the base MUST be in full contact with the vehicle seat without any overhang.
It is preferable to have infants under 22lb more reclined, such that the upper reference line (infants under 22lb) is parallel to the ground. However, providing that the ground level falls within the Upper Reference Line for infants under 22lb (40 degrees from vertical) and lower reference line for children 22lb and over (30 degrees from vertical), you can safely use the seat.
