This infant carrier is designed for use for children whose weight is 13kg or less and
whose heights are 66cm (26 inches) or less.
This infant carrier must only be used in a rear facing position, and must NEVER be
used forward facing. For maximum protection, the centre rear seat position (if it is
fitted with an adult 3-point seat belt) is recommended as the safest position in most
vehicles for installing an infant carrier. (Only use the vehicle’s rear centre seat if the
vehicle seat is fitted with a 3-point adult belt).
Do not use your infant carrier on a vehicle seat with lap belts only.
Your infant carrier should not be purchased or sold as a second hand item.
Remove child out of the car as first priority in an accident.
While travelling it is recommended that any luggage or other objects liable to cause
injuries in the event of a collision shall be properly secured.
Your infant carrier should be securely belted to the vehicle, even when unoccupied
because in a crash an unsecured infant carrier may injure other passengers.
Please take a rest every two hours if you are travelling with a baby in the infant
Please check the infant carrier condition if you are going to travel a long distance
with a child.
Please put all excess luggage into the boot of your car if you are going to travel with
a baby, because loose items may hurt a baby when travelling on unstable roads or
because they move suddenly when braking.
Please always check the infant carrier before you place a baby into it.
Please get in touch with the dealer if anything breaks on the infant carrier. Only the
manufacturer or an authorised agent may do repairs. DO NOT try and fix the infant
carrier by yourself. It might be damaged or cause more damage.
Always check the buckle hole before you buckle up as it may contain crumbs or
obstructions that prevent a secure lock.
Keep your infant carrier out of reach of children when not in use.
Please keep the plastic packaging bag out of the reach of children when
unpacking the infant carrier.
NEVER place the infant carrier on a seat where an air bag is active.
Do not modify the infant carrier.
