What am i doing wrong? I dont have latch in my van ( too old), and with both of the carseats when they are installed with the seat belts, they tip to the side that the shoulder belt connects to the wall. Like the strap is pulling too tight, and causing the seat to tip sideways a bit.

Should i not pull the should strap as tight as i am doing? This cant be normal, can it?

Did you watch Maddie's videos about installs?

This is going to sound confusing, but I'll try to explain. When you pull on the shoulder belt, do you pull above the seat (between the car seat and the place where the belt is connected to the car) or do you pull the shoulder belt by pulling up the cover on the car seat? If I pull up the cover on the seat, I pull the shoulder belt from there. It pulls it tight without pulling one side of the seat up. Does that make sense?
