sopra del marcatore altezza inferiore.
Se le ginocchia non si piegano al limite del sedile del veicolo continuare ad
utilizzare un seggiolino.

• Supervision of children is needed because they may be able to undo the
buckles and/or special features.
• DO NOT LEAVE CHILDREN UNATTENDED IN THE CAR.
• Do not alter or modify this restraint. Use only recommended parts and
accessories.
• Repairs must only be done by the manufacturers or agent.
• Do not allow the restraint to come into contact with polishes, oils, bleach and
other chemicals.
• Destroy the restraint if it has been in a severe crash, even if no damage is
visible.
• DO NOT USE THIS RESTRAINT WITHOUT THE COVER.
• DO NOT USE WITH JUST A LAP BELT. You must use with lap-sash seat belt,

• The lap part of the seat belt must be firmly across the thighs and the sash
straps fitted diagonally across the chest and on the shoulder.
• If used with a child harness, the lap belt must be adjusted firmly first, and
then the harness, so that the lap-belt is not lifted off the child’s lap when the
harness is adjusted.
• Regularly check the restraint components, straps and other fitments for correct
function, cracking & condition. Seek immediate repair.
• IF AN AIRBAG IS FITTED IN THE SEATING POSITION WHERE
THE CHILD RESTRAINT IS TO BE FITTED, FOLLOW THE VEHICLE

10 Instructions for Installation & Use - Series No. 4000/A/2013
IMPORTANT :
• Seatbelt extenders are not recommended to be used if the seatbelt is not long
enough to secure the child restraint. If seatbelts are too short then seek advice
from a child restraint fitter and consider their recommendations before using a
seatbelt extender. If you use a seatbelt extender then ensure that the seatbelt
buckle does not contact the child.
• Do not use in a front seat, unless your child is over 4 years of age or in
accordance with the applicable Road Rules in your region. Research shows
that children under 12 years old are at a greater risk of serious injury when
travelling in the front seat.
• Do not use on any vehicle seat which faces sideways or rearwards.
• Use of aftermarket accessories (i.e. items not provided in the box with the
child restraint), can reduce the safety provided by the child restraint and may
cause injury or death.
• Use a towel or seat protector (messy mat) to protect the vehicle seat.
Protection of both underneath and behind the booster seat may be required.
• Do not store in hot places or underneath heavy objects. The plastic may
distort.
• This child restraint is not approved for use with any connectors that connect to
the car's ISOFIX low anchorages.
• The restraint should not be purchased or sold as a second hand item. It is
recommended not to use child restraints older than 10 years as the protection
in an accident may be reduced.

The SLIDEGUARD™clip crotch strap can be adjusted so that
it fits the seatbelt correctly to the child. The crotch strap length
adjuster can be found under the seat.

that the Lap portion of the seatbelt is positioned on the
child's hips and thighs and the clip prevents the lap belt
rising up onto the abdomen. Ensure the SLIDEGUARD™
clip does not push into your child's thighs as this may
cause discomfort.
CAUTION:

HOW TO USE WITH A CHILD HARNESS
USING THE BOOSTER SEAT WITH A CHILD HARNESS
A child harness MUST be used with this Booster seat if the seating position chosen
has a Lap only seat belt. A child harness can also be used in a position with a
lap-sash seatbelt and is useful if the occupant does not always wear the seat belt
correctly.
When using this Booster Seat with a child harness the Sash guide is not needed
and can be left in the slot in the cover or hanging at the back of the seat.
Before using the Child Harness with a Lap-Sash Seat Belt, you need to convert
the seat belt to a Lap Seat Belt by using a Gated Slide.
The Booster Seat can be used with a child harness in a seating position where a
upper anchorage fitting is fitted in the vehicle. Refer to the car owners manual for
the location of the child restraint upper anchorage fitting and for any precaution
related to airbags in selected seating position. If there is no anchor fitting you
will need to refer to the instruction book for the child harness which will provide
information about fitting an anchor fitting into the car.
This booster seat is suitable for use with either of the following child harnesses:
Safe-n-Sound Protecta PLUS™ harness Series 220/2010 and 220/2013 or
Babylove EzyGo Harness™ Series BL220/2010 and BL220/2013.
CAUTION:
ALWAYS FOLLOW THE CHILD HARNESS INSTRUCTIONS.
If the seating position has a lap only seat belt then no other
preparation is required.
If the seating position has a lap-sash seatbelt then it MUST be
converted into a lap belt by fitting a Gated 3 bar slide.
Only use Gated Slides recommended for this Harness.
When using a curved Gated Slide, the belt route through this
can only go one way as shown.

and the lap belt fits firmly to their hips and

secure the child. If a seat belt extender is used then the buckle must not be in
contact with the child.

HOW TO USE WITH A CHILD HARNESS
CHOOSING METHOD OF INSTALLATION
A Child Harness can be installed using either of the following methods.
METHOD 1 : Using a lap sash seatbelt in conjunction with Gated 3-bar Slide
(provided with the Child Harness) to convert to lap belt plus upper anchorage
strap.
METHOD 2 : Using lap seatbelt plus upper anchorage strap.
Before installing the Child Harness determine which method of installation is
required and follow instructions carefully.
Refer to the child harness instructions.
IMPORTANT :
The SLIDEGUARD™clip MUST ALWAYS be used when the child is using
the booster seat with the child harness as it ensures the lap belt is correctly
positioned on the child's hips and thighs.
A loose or poorly positioned lap belt can allow the lap belt to ride up into the

IN CASE OF ACCIDENT
If your restraint has been involved in a severe crash, you should destroy the
restraint even if no damage is obvious. Some insurance companies offer vehicle
insurance which covers or partially covers the replacement of your child restraint.
Contact your insurance company for further details. Your insurance company
may require you to keep the child restraint for assessment, but do not use the
child restraint after a severe crash. To assist you in making an accident insurance
claim cut the following statement and include it with your claim.
NOTICE TO INSURANCE COMPANY CHILD
RESTRAINT INVOLVED IN AN ACCIDENT
This Britax Safe-n-Sound child restraint is manufactured to Australian/New
Zealand Standard AS/NZS1754-2013 which requires us to advise users of child
restraints to "Destroy the entire restraint if it has been in use in a severe crash,
even if no damage is obvious". The joint Australian/New Zealand Standards
committee CS/085 advise that this statement applies whether a child was in the
child restraint or not. A severe crash, we consider as being one where the main
body structure of the vehicle is distorted.
There is no method of determining if the restraint has been damaged and we
concur with the Australian/New Zealand Standards in recommending destruction
of the child restraint.
This notice is to advise you of the requirements of the Australian/New Zealand
Standards and our obligation in complying with the standards.
Please assist the owner of this restraint in their claim.

IN CASE OF ACCIDENT
CRASH EXCHANGE
We would never want you to experience an accident, but unfortunately accidents
do happen. If you experience an accident you may be eligible for a free
replacement.
The Safe-n-Sound Crash Exchange Program is a voluntary program designed to
ensure that our children are safe and that any seat that may have experienced a
severe crash is taken out of the market.
There is no method of determining if the restraint has been damaged in a severe
crash, so the restraint should be destroyed as the crash may reduce the child
restraints ability to perform.
Since its inception in 2006, the Crash Exchange program has helped 100’s of
families ensure that their children have new restraints and that the restraints are
not sold second hand placing others at risk.
Our Crash Exchange Terms and Application form are accessible on our website.
Please visit www.britax.com.au for further information.
