You should have clips that attach to the seat belts that clip on the 'bolts' at either end of Matrix.
The big belt type thing with velcro goes through the mattress and fastens around baby.
Should be instructions on the Jane site, will go look now.

personally i would never use that car seat in the lay flat positon.... as in indepandant crash tests it has proven to extreamly unsafe, and the baby is likely to be injured as a result.

Its a very safe seat when used as a normal car seat tho (and can be used from birth) so i would use it like a normal car seat.

Also on evaluation the risk of being in the lie flat seat in an accident is a much worse risk then sitting up to travel like in other normal group 0 seats!

You can see it all in this months which report..... again (was also said in 2006 (or was it 2005?).... anyway they dont recommend using it lieing flat when travelling in a car!
