So, you’ve got your favorite baby carrier and it’s been working great, but your webbing’s all twisted and your buckle got turned around. Well, no need to worry. There are a couple of easy ways to fix this problem. The easiest is by simply sliding the buckle up and down the webbing while turning it. Soon enough, it’ll get turned around. Easy-peasy.
The other option is to remove the buckle and re-thread it. It’s easy to remove and replace the buckle on any of the straps. We’ll show you how to thread a buckle on a baby carrier in no time flat.
Here’s how to re-thread a buckle on a baby carrier:
1. Start with your buckle and webbing facing the way you want it to face when you’re done. It might help you to take a look at the other strap to see how it’s threaded for this step.
2. Pull the elastic loop through the large inside slot closest to the buckle. This loop will lead the rest of the webbing through.
3. Pull the rest of the webbing through the buckle slot. You might have to work and wiggle it a bit because the webbing is folded and sewn here, making it thicker. It’s thick on purpose. The thickness keeps the buckle from sliding too far and falling off the strap.
4. And you’re done! See how easy? So easy.
5. Your baby carrier is ready for all your babywearing adventures again. Simply put it on, pop your baby in, and adjust it to your comfort.
There you go, MacGyver. You’re ready to roll. Give yourself a pat on the back for a job well-done!
