Your Child’s Safety Depends on You cont’d
Before You Begin
No child restraint system can guarantee protection from injury in every situation.
However, proper use of the Orbit Toddler Car Seat reduces the risk of serious
injury or death to your child. Your child’s safety depends on you installing and
using this child restraint system correctly every time. This instruction manual
guides you in detail through the following steps:
1. Register your Toddler Car Seat and take note of the Expiration Date.
Orbit Baby will help you keep track of safety updates and product recalls
when you register with us.
2. Learn How to Use the Toddler Car Seat. The Toddler Car Seat can be used
in three configurations:
a) Rear-Facing on the Orbit Base,
b) Rear-Facing with the Braces (without the Orbit Base), or
c) Forward-Facing with the Braces (without the Orbit Base).
The best choice for your child’s safety depends on your child’s weight and
height: review the “Usage Recommendations” section of this manual.
3. Select a seating location in your car. An important overview of vehicle
seating locations is in the “Usage Recommendations” section. There you can
find information about air bags and different types of vehicle seat belts. The
Toddler Car Seat can be installed using either the LATCH System or vehicle
seat belts.
6
Note: According to accident statistics, children have less chance of
injury when properly restrained in rear vehicle seats. In addition, safety
7
technicians recommend keeping children Rear-Facing for as long as
possible. The switch to Forward-Facing will depend on your child’s age and
size. Consult the “Usage Recommendations” section.
4. Install your Toddler Car Seat with your Orbit Base or
with the Braces. Only use your Toddler Car Seat on
an Orbit Base Rear-Facing, and on an Orbit Base with a
Green Circular Seal (shown at right) on its Center Label.
When using the Orbit Base, have the Base manual handy
for instructions about Base installation. (The Orbit Base
manual can also be stored with this one inside the Rear
Access Panel, at the rear of the Toddler Car Seat.)
5. Ensure that the Toddler Car Seat is level. Level Indicators show whether
the Toddler Car Seat is properly reclined. The recline can be adjusted, both
when using the Orbit Base or the Braces. A carseat that is too reclined can
result in injury or ejections, and a carseat that is too upright can result in
breathing difficulties.
Before You Begin
6
6. Check the security of the Toddler Car Seat by pulling in several different
directions after installation. The Toddler Car Seat should not move more than
1 inch (1”) in any direction once installed. ( Note: The Toddler Car Seat must
be locked in Rear-Facing position when using on the Orbit Base.)
7. Secure your child. The sections in “Securing Your Child” provide you with
instructions to secure and adjust the Restraint Harness to the proper fit for

your child. You can also adjust the fit of the crotch belt to ensure safety and
comfort to your child.
Before You Begin
8. Use properly in an aircraft and on the Orbit Stroller. The section titled
“Traveling with your Toddler Car Seat” reviews how you can use the Toddler
Car Seat in aircraft seats and on the Orbit Stroller.
9. Maintenance and Cleaning. The last section provides you with instructions
to clean the Upholstery, as well as explains the limited customer warranty.

You will notice an overlap of the Rear- and Forward-Facing weight ranges. This
is so that you have flexibility to make the transition when your child is over 1
year old and it feels right for your child’s size. Orbit Baby, along with many safety
groups, recommends keeping children in a Rear-Facing position as long as
possible while following the above requirements. However, the child should
switch from Rear- to Forward-Facing if the child is over 1 year of age or they are
uncomfortable in a Rear-Facing position.

Usage Recommendations
Rear-Facing Considerations: When used Rear-Facing, the Toddler Car Seat
can be docked on the Orbit Base or installed by itself with the addition of the
included Braces. Safety technicians recommend keeping children in a RearFacing position for as long as possible.
Important Notice: The Orbit Base has been updated to extend its usage for
the Toddler Car Seat. You can only use your Orbit Base with your Toddler Car
Seat if it has the Green Circular Seal shown below. All Bases manufactured
before 2/2008 must be updated by contacting Orbit Baby or visiting
www.orbitbaby.com/support/upgrade.
1. Choosing a Vehicle Seating Location
You may choose a seating location in your vehicle that has acceptable LATCH
anchors (part of the Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children system) or vehicle
seat belts approved by the vehicle manufacturer. The shape of the seat and
vehicle seat belt type may also affect the installation of the Toddler Car Seat.
According to accident statistics, children have less chance of injury when
properly restrained in rear vehicle seats, rather than front vehicle seats.
In addition, the center rear seating location is considered the best location if
ALL the following conditions are met:
Green

b) LATCH or vehicle seat belt provides a secure installation and remains tightly
adjusted around the carseat
Usage Recommendations
16
c) The seat geometry allows the seat to be properly reclined once installed
Forward-Facing Considerations: In the Forward-Facing orientation, the
Toddler Car Seat can only be used with the included Braces. It is not possible
to dock the Toddler Car Seat into the Orbit Base Forward-Facing.

The Orbit Toddler Car Seat is certified for use in aircraft and is labeled as such.
Most airlines in the U.S. and Canada will allow the use of a carseat that is labeled
as an approved child restraint for aircraft use. Always contact the airline about
their carseat policy before traveling, and follow their guidelines for carseat use.
Note: the Toddler Car Seat can ONLY be used with the included
Braces in aircraft – it cannot be used with the Orbit Base in aircraft.
3. If installing the Toddler Car Seat Rear-Facing, it is important to ensure that the
back of the carseat will not touch the back of the aircraft seat in front of you, both
when the aircraft seat is upright and reclined.
4. Recline the aircraft seat back when installing the seat; then bring it back
upright for an even tighter installation.
You can install the Toddler Car Seat either Rear- or Forward-Facing in an aircraft.
To secure the Toddler Car Seat Rear-Facing in an aircraft seat
Follow the instructions in the blue Rear-Facing section, “Installation with Braces &
Lap Style Seat Belts (without Orbit Base),” on pages 52-54.
Tips For Traveling With Your Toddler in an Aircraft
To secure the Toddler Car Seat Forward-Facing in an aircraft seat
Follow the instructions in the red Forward-Facing section, “Installation with LapStyle Seat Belts (without Orbit Base),” on pages 70-71.
2. Contact the airline in advance to be sure this child restraint complies with their
specific requirements, and to check whether they will provide discounted tickets
for children.
1. You should choose the same orientation (either Rear- or Forward-Facing) for an
aircraft installation as you would use in a car for your child at that time.
96
97
Using in an Aircraft
2. Make sure that the aircraft seat belt can be tightly secured around the Toddler
Car Seat. If the aircraft lap belt is too short, ask your flight attendant for a belt
extender.
1. Reserve a separate aircraft seat for your child and the child restraint.

3. Bulkhead seats or Business Class seats are preferred, as they have more room
in front of them.
4. Install your Toddler Car Seat in a window seat to avoid blocking the row.
5. Take advantage of pre-boarding for families with children. The extra time will
help to get the seat installed tightly.

Metal and Plastic Parts
Crotch Buckle and Buckle Tongues
Metal and plastic parts on the Toddler Car Seat and Base may be wiped
clean with a mild soap and water solution. Towel dry. Do not use household
detergents, such as bleach or abrasive agents. These detergents can weaken
plastic parts.
If a child eats and drinks in the Toddler Car Seat, the Crotch Buckle and Buckle
Tongues should be periodically checked and cleaned of any accumulated
debris or liquids. The Crotch Buckle may be cleaned with a damp cloth or
removed (see page 84) and thoroughly rinsed with warm water. Towel dry. Test
the Crotch Buckle by fastening and unfastening until a positive click is heard
when inserting the Buckle Tongues. If a click is not heard, repeat the cleaning
procedure. Do not use lubricants, solvents, abrasive cleaners, soap or other
household detergents on the Crotch Buckle or Buckle Tongues.
Restraint Harness and Belts
The Restraint Harness and other straps and belts may be spot cleaned with a
mild soap and water solution and towel dried. DO NOT immerse the Restraint
Harness, or other straps and belts, in water - doing so may weaken them. If the
Harness is still heavily soiled after spot cleaning, contact Orbit Baby for further
instructions.
Sunshade
The Sunshade is removable and may be spot cleaned with a damp sponge and
mild soap. Do not machine wash or dry the Sunshade.
Harness Adjuster Strap
SmartHub, Rotational Check Mechanism, & Hub Locks
Periodically check the adjuster area to be sure it is clean and free of food, coins,
dirt, and other objects. If debris is present, it must be removed to prevent
interference with the adjuster mechanism. Brush away loose debris and sponge
clean using warm water and mild soap. Towel dry. Do not use solvents or
abrasive cleaners. Do not disassemble the Restraint Harness.
Keep the entire bottom Hub area, and the Hub Locks specifically, on the Toddler
Car Seat clean and free of foreign material in order for the Toddler Car Seat to
function properly. As well, keep the Base’s SmartHub and Rotational Check
Mechanisms clean and free of foreign material. Do not allow any liquids or
particulate matter (such as sand or soil) to enter any of these areas.
