Notices
1. The child car seat must only be used in vehicles which are fitted with a three point
seatbelt system that has been approved by regulation ECE-16 or similar.

book that the vehicle is capable of accepting a ‘Universal ’child restraint for this
group.
3. The child car seat is a ‘Universal’ child restraint; it conforms to regulation
ECE-R44/04 for general use in vehicles. It will fit most, but not all vehicle seats.
4. This child car seat has been declared ‘Universal’ under more stringent conditions
than those applied to earlier designs, which do not carry the ‘Universal’ mark.

modifications or change of use of the child car seat that have not been authorised
or advised by the manufacturer. 2) Any failure to fit the child car seat in strict
accordance with the instructions.

GETTING STARTED
Read Carefully Before Attempting to Fit the Child Car Seat
Warning: NEVER leave your child unattended – your child’s safety is your responsibility.
Warning: The child car seat must be fitted in accordance with the manufacturer’s
instructions. Incorrect installation could be dangerous.
Warning: This installation must only be performed by a competent adult. Don’t try to
install the seat when intoxicated or drowsy.
Warning: Always ensure that new or occasional users [e.g. grandparents] have read
the instructions or been taught the correct installation by someone who has read and
understood the instructions.
Warning: Always keep this instruction manual with the child car seat, or in the vehicle
in which you are carrying the child car seat. Some models of child car seat have a
pocket to store the instructions.
Before Starting
Warning: Do not fit the child car seat on a side or rear facing vehicle seat.
Warning: Before installing the child car seat ensure that the passenger seat you are
using is locked in the upright position.
Warning: Do not use the child car seat in the home - it has only been designed to be
used in the car.
Warning: Do not leave loose/unsecured objects on the back seat of your car or the
parcel shelf. They may be dangerous to your child if you are forced to brake suddenly.
Which is the safest passenger seat to fit your child car seat to?
THE CENTRE REAR PASSENGER SEAT
If your centre rear passenger seat is fitted with a three point seatbelt system then you
should use it.
If your centre rear passenger seat does not have a three point seatbelt system (i.e. no
seatbelt at all, or only a lap belt):
- then you should use the rear left passenger seat or the rear right passenger seat.
The front passenger seat can only be used if it DOES NOT have an airbag and IS fitted
with a three point seatbelt system.
page 2
EXTREME HAZARD
NEVER USE IN FRONT PASSENGER SEATS EQUIPPED WITH AIRBAGS (SRS)
THIS CAN INCLUDE REAR PASSENGER SEATS THAT ARE EQUIPPED WITH AIRBAGS*
*Consult car manufacturer for suitability. Children’s bodies are not able to withstand the forces
exerted on them by a deploying air-bag
When Using the Child Car Seat
Warning: Make sure that the child car seat is placed somewhere so that rigid items and
plastic parts do not become trapped in doors or movable seat units when the seat is in
everyday use.
Warning: Always use the vehicle’s door child safety lock system, if one is available, to
make it impossible for the child to open the car doors from inside.
Warning: Allow the child a break during long car journeys and make sure they don’t
get out of the car unaided and without supervision.
Warning: The child car seat must be fitted securely to the passenger seat. Ensure that it
is not loose or wobbly after you have fitted it. If it is loose, re-fit it.
Warning: Ensure that the child car seat is secured to the car seat at all times - even
when not in use.
Warning: The child car seat must not be used without its original cover. The original
cover is essential for the safe operation of the child car seat.
Warning: Stop the car at regular intervals to check that the child car seat is in the
correct position and that both the car seatbelt AND the child car seat harness (if fitted)
are still taut and latched.
Warning: If you travel with passengers using both the front and the rear passenger
seats, the lighter occupants should be in the rear and the heavier occupants in the
front.
Warning: If you have no option other than to put your child car seat on a rear
passenger seat next to side airbags:
- Consult with your vehicle manufacturer for side airbag details. It may not be safe.
- Make sure your child does not lean into the area immediately around the airbag.
Warning: Do not place anything under the child car seat (e.g. a towel or cushion) as
this could affect the performance of the seat in an accident.
Warning: Avoid winter clothing bundling - Bulky clothing can lead to incorrect harness
tightening. In an accident, the child can slip right out of the extra padding - and thus
out of the seat. Let the car warm up or cool down prior to placing your child in there if
possible. If your child is cold, place a blanket over the top of the harness.
Warning: In the event of an emergency it is important to be able to release the child
quickly (as defined by British Standards). This means that the seat buckle cannot be
fully tamper proof and you should actively discourage your child from playing with or
using the buckle.
Important: Ensure your child knows the harness is there to keep them safe.
Important: Do not start the engine until you are sure that your child is securely
harnessed in their seat AND that you have also correctly fastened your seatbelt. Ask
your child if everyone is safely belted up and whether it is okay to drive off.

Seatbelt
Warning: NEVER use any load bearing contact points other than those described in
these instructions or marked on the child car seat.
Warning: Ensure that the lap section of the seatbelt or harness is worn low down, so
that the pelvis is firmly engaged.
Warning: Make sure that ALL the passengers in your vehicle have their seatbelts
fastened, as unrestrained people can be very dangerous to the child in an accident.
Warning: NEVER use a seatbelt routing scheme that differs from these instructions.
Warning: The lap and diagonal seatbelt (and harness if fitted) must be used at all times
when your child is in the child car seat.
Warning: Make sure that there are no twists in the seatbelt.
Sunlight/Hot days
Warning: Do not leave your child in the child car seat while parked in direct sunlight or on a
hot day.
Warning: Do not subject the child car seat to prolonged direct sunlight as this may be
dangerous for your child (the metal and plastic fittings could become hot) and may cause
the fabric to fade. You can reduce this problem by covering the child car seat with a
sheet when not in use.
Back of the Seat/Headrest
Warning: Ensure that the child car seat is as close as possible to the backrest of the car
seat.
Warning: REMOVE the head rest of the passenger seat being used if it obstructs the proper
installation of the child car seat. REMEMBER to refit the headrest when the child car seat
has been removed.
Second Hand or Damaged Child Car Seats and Seatbelts
Warning: Never buy a second hand child car seat. It may have unseen damage.
Warning: The manufacturer only guarantees this product when the original owner uses it.
Warning: You MUST replace the child car seat and your vehicles seatbelts if they becomes
badly worn or damaged.
Warning: You MUST replace the child car seat if it is involved in an accident – it may have
unseen damage and may not protect your child as well as they should. At the very least
send the child car seat to the manufacturers for inspection, together with the accident
report.

Positioning the seat
A
The child car seat can only be used with
an automatic 3-point safety belt (A) and
NOT with a 2-point lap belt (B).
B
The child car seat can be secured in
a forward-facing position in the rear
seats of the vehicle by using the existing
seatbelts. However, on some seats, if
the installation is not properly secured,
we suggest you try another seat in your
vehicle.
Although not recommended, the child
car seat can be used on a passenger
side front seat, so long as there is no
active airbag in place.
WARNING: Never use in a seat with an
active airbag.
Four-position seat recline
The child car seat can be used in four
different seat positions, from seated
to a reclined sleeping position. Pull
the recline adjuster handle (A) under
the front of the shell and pull the shell
forwards or backwards, release the
handle on your required position when
hearing a distinct click.

To operate the lock-off device:
Pull down on tab (E) to open the locking device.
Feed the seatbelt into the gap between the tab and the locking device (F).
Pull the diagonal section of seatbelt tight (G).
With your child car seat now buckled in, check it is secure by pulling forward from both
harness straps, there should be little or no movement. Next check that the vehicle’s
seatbelt buckle is NOT resting against the child car seat shell. This is called ‘buckle
crunch’ and could cause the child car seat to work loose or the seatbelt to come
undone in an accident. If you find you are experiencing ‘buckle crunch’ then this child
car seat is not suitable for your vehicle.
WARNING: The child car seat should always be strapped in using the vehicle’s seatbelt,
whether a child is seated in the child car seat or not.
