Thank you for purchasing the Sit’n’Stroll5-in- 1
Combination Car Seat/StrollerTM. The Sit’n’StrolP
is the most advanced car seat/stroller available, and
we believe the simplest, safest and most convenient
way to travel
with an infant.
The most important benefit the Sit’n’StrollTM can provide is increased
protection for your child. Studies have shown the use of a child
restraint system reduces the likelihood of death and injury caused by
the tremendous forces involved in an automobile accident. Please
follow these instructions carefullly to minimize the risk of injury or
death to your child in the event of a sudden stop or collision. No
system can guarantee the safety of your baby, but child restraints
have been proven so effective they are required in all 50 states and
by most industrialized nations in the world.
Child restraints could be recalled for safety reasons. You
must register this restraint to be reached in a recall. Send
your name, address and the restraint’s model number and
manufacturing
date to Safeline Corporation,
1777 South
Bellaire Street, Suite #330, Denver, Colorado 80222 or call
303-757-2400.
For recall information, call the U.S.

Safety Guidelines
Always use good common sense! If you have questions about your Safeline
product, please call us at 800-829-l 625 or 303-757-2400.
Do not place this rear-facing car seat in a vehicle seat with a passenger side
air bag. In the event of a collision or sudden stop, the force of an inflating air
bag can cause serious injury or death. Not following this warning places your
child at serious risk. If your vehicle has a passenger side air bag, consult your
owner’s manual for child restraint installation instructions.
Never leave your child unattended in a car.
Never allow your child to install the Sit’n’StrollTM in the car; an adult should
always install the Sit’n’StrollTM to ensure proper installation.
Never allow your child to unbuckle the vehicle’s seat belt while the car is in
motion. Your child must remain restrained by the Sit’n’StrollTM’s 5point
harness system and the vehicle’s seat belt at all times in order to be securely
restrained.
Not following these instructions could lead to your child impacting with the
vehicle’s interior in a sudden stop or collision.
Do not alter or modify any part of the Sit’n’StrollTM.
Do not place heavy objects on the Sit’n’StrollTM.
Secure loose objects in your car. In the event of a sudden stop or collision,
loose objects will continue to move and may cause serious injury
to passengers.
Diligently read and follow all instructions contained in this manual. Keep your
instruction manual with you whenever you use the Sit’n’StrollTM. The
instruction manual should be stored in the plastic bag and attached in the rear
storage bin with the supplied hook and loop.
This child restraint is designed for use by children who weigh between 5 and
40 pounds (2.3kg to 18.1 kg) and whose height is between 18 and 40 inches
(458cm and 101.6cm). This unit is certified for use by children in the REARFACING position from 5 to 25 pounds (2.3kg to 11.3kg) and in the FORWARDFACING position from 20 to 40 pounds (9.1 kg to 18.1 kg).
If this child restraint is involved in a crash, it must be replaced. The vehicle
seat belt securing the infant restraint must also be replaced. Damage is not
always visible.
The shoulder straps must pass over the infant’s shoulders and between the
legs directly to the buckle. The child’s legs should always straddle the crotch
buckle. The lap straps of the harness should always come over the top of your
child’s legs.
Secure the Sit’n’StrollTM in the car at all
times even when not in use by your
child. In the event of a sudden stop or
collision, an unbelted car seat could
injure other occupants in the car.

Securing your Child in the Sit’n’StrollTM
On hot or sunny days, always check the fabric and
metal buckles before placing your child in the
restraint
to avoid burns or discomfort.
1. To unlock the restraint harness, press the red
buckle release button and pull the two metal Lclips out of the buckle.
2.
Place your child in the Sit’n’StrollTM. Ensure the
harness passes snugly over your child’s shoulders and each leg, and then snaps into the
crotch buckle. Tug on the metal L-clips to ensure
they are securely locked in the crotch buckle.
When using the Sit’n’StroP
in the rearfacing position, use the shoulder
slots at or
below your child’s shoulders.
When using the
Sit’n’StrollTM in the forward-facing
position,
use the shoulder slots at or above your child’s
shoulders.
See “Adjusting the Harness” on page
16 for instructions on how to change the shoulder
slots.
3.
If the restraint is too tight or too loose for your
child, use the adjustment buckle located on your
child’s left shoulder strap to correct the tension.
See “Adjusting the Harness” on page 16 for a
detailed explanation on using the adjustment
buckle. Adjust the harness so there is no more
than two fingers clearance between the child’s
body and the harness straps. After properly
threading the harness back through the
adjustment
slide,
take
any
excess
strap
and
follow the harness back down through the crotch
buckle, tucking the excess under the seat cover.
4.
Snap the two halves of the black chest clip
together. Ensure the chest clip is positioned
directly over the child’s chest area. Ensure the
shoulder straps cannot slip off the infant’s
shoulders. If the chest clip is placed
incorrectly,
you must remove the shoulder
pads in order to ensure proper placement of
the chest clip over the child’s chest.

infants and other small children may require additional head and
posture support when using the Sit’n’StrolP
to avoid injury or
suffocation. Bolsters may assist in supporting the neck and head of a
small child. Retailers of children’s products generally carry bolsters in
their accessory aisles. If you have questions regarding bolsters,
please contact Safeline or the American Academy of Pediatrics.
Installing
the Sit’n’StrollTM
Choosing
in Your Vehicle
an Appropriate
Vehicle Seat
The Sit’n’Stroll was designed to be used in automobiles and airplanes, and should
not be used in boats or on motorcycles. The Sit’n’StrollTM must be positioned in a
seat that faces the front of the vehicle. The Sit’n’StrollTM was not designed to be
used in seats facing the rear or the center of the vehicle, and it is dangerous to
install and use the Sit’n’StrollTM in any such seat. The back seat is the safest
location for children 12 and under.
See the drawings
below
for further
clarification.
Correct Position!
The center rear seating
location is generally the
safest position for your child.
Correct Position!
Always install your
Sit’n’StrollTM in a vehicle seat
that faces the front of the
vehicle.
Danger!
Do not install your
Sit’n’StrollTM in a vehicle seat
that faces the center of the
vehicle.

Do not place this rear-facing car seat in a vehicle
seat with a passenger side air bag. In the event of a
sudden stop or collision, the force of an inflating air
bag can cause serious injury or death to a child. Not
following this warning places your child at serious
risk. Owners of vehicles with passenger side air
bags should refer to their owner’s manual for child
restraint installation instructions.
Determining
the Correct
Seating
Position
Determining the direction you should face your child is one of the most important
decisions regarding the safety of a child in a car seat. Safety experts recommend
your child remain in the rear-facing position until he or she is at least 20 pounds
and at least 1 year of age. The Sit’n’Stroll TMis certified for use by children up to
25 pounds in the rear-facing position and up to 40 pounds in the forward-facing
position. Consider both the weight and age guidelines when determining the
direction in which you should face your child while traveling in a vehicle. A child
under one year of age may not have the physiological development necessary
to
sustain the forces involved in a sudden stop or collision while sitting in a forwardfacing position. Consult with your physician to determine your child’s specific
needs.
+
+
+
Always use the Sit’n’StrollTM rear-facing if your baby weighs less than 20
pounds or is less than 1 year of age (and less than 25lbs), unless otherwise
directed by your child’s physician.
When your child weighs at least 20 pounds, but less than 25 pounds, and the
top of his or her head is below the top of the stitch line, you can still use the
Sit’n’StrollTM in the rear-facing position, However, you may use the
Sit’n’StrollTM in the forward-facing
position.
If your child’s head is higher than the stitch line when he or she is sitting in the
Sit’n’StrollTM or if your child weighs more than 25 pounds, you must use the
Sit’n’StrollTM in the forward-facing
postion.
If your child meets all of the above guidelines for the rear-facing
position, but his or her legs are too long, have him or her sit with his or
her legs crossed. Your child is generally safer remaining in the rearfacing position for as long as the rear-facing guidelines are applicable.
According to accident statistics, children
are safer when properly restrained in the
rear seating positions than in the front
seating positions.

Placing your child in the
or she is over one year old

forward-facing
position, consider both the weight and age
guidelines for the forward-facing
postion. Consult with your
physician to determine the individual needs of your child.
lnsfalling the Sit’n’SfrollrM
in the
Rear-Facing
Position
1.
Thread the vehicle seat belt under the rearfacing tabs on the armrests of the
Sit’n’StrollTM. Secure the vehicle seat belt
on the other side of the Sit’n’StrollTM in the
vehicle seat buckle. Rock the Sit’n’StrollTM
from side to side to ensure the vehicle seat
belt holds the unit firmly in place. If the
vehicle seat belt is loose, press down firmly
on the armrests and tug on the vehicle seat
belt until it retracts and tightens.
2.
With continuous-loop
lap/shoulder belts
that allow the buckle to slide freely up and
down the belt, you must use the metal
locking clip (enclosed). To use the clip, first
install the Sit’n’StrollTM and tighten the
vehicle seat belt by pulling on the shoulder
belt. Grip the shoulder and lap belts
together about M inch from the buckle and
slide the locking clip over both belts (see
picture). Rock the Sit’n’StrollTM from side to
side to ensure the vehicle seat belt holds
the unit firmly in place.
3.
For manually adjusted seat belts that are
not automatically tightened by a retraction
system, adjust the belt until it is tight. Rock
the Sit’n’StrollTM from side to side to
ensure the vehicle seat belt holds the unit
firmly in place.
When using the Sit’n’StrollTM in the rear-facing
position, thread the Sit’n’StrollTM’s
5point
harness system through the shoulder slots at or
below the shoulders
of the child.

If the vehicle seat belt loosens, twist the adjustment buck/e and the
end of the be/t twice before buckling it. This should prevent the
adjustment system from inadvertently loosening.
If the lap belt you are using will not hold the unit firmly
in place or will not reach around the car seat, use
another seating position in the vehicle. If no other
position exists with a lap belt that will remain tight,
contact your auto dealer to have one installed.
Like all
car seats, the Sit’n’StrollrM
must always be anchored
with a lap belt that will remain tight at all times,
For infants, you should install the Sit’n’StrollTM at a 45degree angle.
The Sit’n’StrollTM automatically positions your child at a 45-degree
angle when placed on a f/at surface. Because not a// automobile seats
are flat, the seat may install at an angle less than 45degrees.
To
correct this problem, you can roll a towel and secure it under the front
edge of the Sit’n’StrollTM where the vehicle seat bottom and back
meet. For more information on this subject, please contact the
American Academy of Pediatrics.
Installing the Sit’n’StrollTM in the
Forward-Facing
Position
For your child’s safety, the Sit’n’StrollTM’s patented design provides
double belted protection for your child and is designed to use your
automobile’s seat be/t the way if was originally designed-to
go
across the front of the occupant.
Forward-Facing
Seat Belt Positions
The Sit’n’StrollTM is equipped with two sets of tabs for the forward-facing
seating
postion. The tab postion that is best suited for your child is determined by his or
her height and weight.
+
+
If your child is taller then 33 inches and weighs over 28 pounds, the vehicle
seat belt should be secured in the primary forward-facing
seat belt position
(see diagram on next page).
If your child is under 33 inches and weighs less than 28 pounds, the vehicle
seat belt should be secured in the secondary forward-facing
seat belt position
(see diagram on next page).

Installing
the Sit’n’StrollTM on an Aircraft
Contact the airline prior to taking the child
restraint on board the aircraft.
Install the Sit’n’StrollTM in the airline seat the
same way you would when using it in a car.
You may need to raise the armrests in the
aircraft to allow room for the Sit’n’StrollTM. After
the Sit’n’StrollTM is in place, you can usually
lower the armrest back into place. If you are
seated behind the bulkhead where the armrests don’t raise, you can usually slide the
Sit’n’StrollTM like a tray in between the armrests and the seat cushion.
3.
Regular luggage checking of a Sit’n’StrollTM
may result in damage to the unit. We suggest
you gate check your unit if necessary.
Contact your airline and inquire if they offer special rates for
children traveling in car seats.
In private aircraft, do not install the car seat where it
will block an exit from the aircraft or where it could
block or inhibit the use of flight controls.
Do not place the car seat next to an emergency
exit or
a seat row which contains an emergency
exit.
Converting
the Sit’n’Stroll
TM from Car Seat to Stroller
For your child’s comfort, the Sit’n’StrollTM utilizes an advanced torsional
suspension
system that is active while the unit is in stroller mode. It is
normal for the stroller to flex and have a springy feel just like your car.
The suspension
system aids in ride comfort for your child and prevents
damage to the components. The Sit’n’StrollTM handle incorporates flex
steering which means the “looseness”
you feel is normal and aids in
maneuvering the stroller.

Adjusting
the Harness
For your child’s safety, the Sit’n’StrollJM utilizes a continuous-loop
5point harness system-the
kind most recommended
by safety experts.
Never
use the Sit’n’StrollJM
without
securely buckled.

Generally speaking, the tighter the harness, the more effective it will be in
protecting your child in the event of a sudden stop or collision. However, use
your best judgement and gauge your baby’s comfort when using the
Sit’n’StrollTM. As your child grows you will need to make adjustments to the
harness system.
For minor harness adjustments,
use the adjustment slide
located on your baby’s left shoulder strap.
For major harness adjustments,
move the shoulder straps to a higher placement
on the back of the seat as your baby gets larger. Additionally, use the following
instructions to remove the fabric cover for washing or cleaning.

harness through the bottom of the adjustment
buckle (from back to front) and then through
the top of the adjustment buckle. Flip the
webbing over the top bar of the adjustment
buckle and thread it back down through the
