A-2 Registration and Safety Notices
Thank you for choosing this car seat, referred to throughout
this manual as a child restraint. The DJG family is committed
to creating a child restraint with the most comfort and
convenience available today.
Please complete the postage-paid registration card that
came with your child restraint, and send it to us. Child
restraints could be recalled for safety reasons. You must
register this restraint to be reached in a recall. Send
your name, address, email address if available, and the
restraint’s model number and manufacturing date to:
Remember, parents are a child’s first teachers and examples.
If you always buckle your seat belt, your child will think it is
the natural thing to do. Make it a firm rule that the vehicle
does not go until everyone is buckled up. Make no exceptions.
No one can predict if use of a child restraint will prevent
injury or death in a particular crash. However, combined with
careful driving, proper use of a child restraint can lower a
child’s risk of injury or death in most crashes.
Your child’s safety is worth the time it will take to read and
follow these instructions. After reading, if you still have
questions or have any problems with this child restraint,
please contact our Consumer Relations Department at:
Dorel Juvenile Group, Inc.

D-1 Understanding Your Vehicle
D-2 Vehicle Seating Position
Your vehicle’s features may be considerably different than
those pictured here. Consult your vehicle owner’s manual to
help identify your vehicle’s specific features and locations.
Some seating positions in your vehicle may not be safe for
this child restraint. Some vehicles do not have a seating
position that can be used safely with this child restraint. If
you are not sure where to place the child restraint in your
vehicle, consult your vehicle owner’s manual or contact
Dorel Juvenile Group Consumer Relations Dept.

Vehicle Seat Belts

LATCH Anchors
Located in the seat
bight.
To help protect your vehicle seat’s upholstery from
damage, use a single layered towel underneath and
behind child restraint.
To avoid your child being seriously burned,
take the following precautions:
1. Park in the shade or where sun does not directly
hit the child restraint.
2. Cover the child restraint with a sheet or blanket
when not in use.
3. Check for hot seat and buckles before placing
child in child restraint.
29
Use the child restraint
only on vehicle seats
that face forward. Do not
use on seats that face
the sides or rear of the
vehicle.
Safety Tip:
Children are safer
when properly
restrained in rear
seating positions than
in the front seating positions.
According to National Highway Traffic
Safety Administration information, children
in rear seating positions are statistically
safer, whether you have air bags,
advanced air bags, or no air bags at all.
30
D. General Vehicle Installation
Safety Tip:
Never place a child rear-facing in a
seating position with an active frontal
airbag. This can result in serious injury
or death.
D-3 Choosing LATCH or Vehicle Belts
LATCH Anchor Bars
The LATCH System
LATCH (Lower Anchors and
Tethers for CHildren) is a
universal system for installing
child restraints without using
vehicle seat belts.
The LATCH system can ONLY
be used in vehicles that have
the LATCH anchor bars installed and designated LATCH seating
positions. Most vehicles manufactured after September 2002 are
equipped with LATCH.
Check your vehicle owner’s manual to see which seating
positions may be equipped with the LATCH system.
Vehicle Belts
See next page and check your vehicle’s owner’s manual for
specific instructions.
Do not use both the LATCH belt and vehicle
belt at the same time.
Vehicle Belts
• Automatic/Passive vehicle seat belts
You MUST have a lap belt to install any child restraint. An
automatic (passive) shoulder belt may or may not have a
separate lap belt. Consult your vehicle owner’s manual.
• Vehicle belts in center of the
door or side panel
You must move the child restraint to
another seating location. Consult your
vehicle owner’s manual.
• Vehicle belts that are in front of
the seat bight
You may need to move the child
restraint to another seating location.
Consult your vehicle owner’s manual.
• ELR (Emergency Locking
Retractor) vehicle belts
These lap and shoulder belts only lock in a sudden stop or
crash, and do not properly secure a child restraint alone.
Consult your vehicle owner’s manual.
To learn if you have this type of belt,
gently pull the belt all the way out
of the retractor (spool), let it return
several inches, then pull on it again. If
it moves freely, it is an ELR belt. If it is locked and will not
allow any more belt to come out, it is a switchable retractor.
If you have an ELR lap and shoulder belt, review the “Vehicle
Latch Plate” section to see if you need a locking clip.
D-4 Knowing Your Vehicle Belts
Review your vehicle’s owner manual for vehicle seat belt use
with child restraints. This is your best source for information
concerning your vehicle.
31
ELR lap-only belts MUST NOT be used with
this child restraint.
32
continued on next page.
D. General Vehicle Installation
If LATCH is not an option,
you must use the vehicle
seat belt system to install
the child restraint. There
are some vehicle belts that
will not work with a child
restraint or will require special attention.
Not all vehicle belts will work with this child restraint. This
child restraint must be tightly locked in place at all times,
during travel. You must determine if your vehicles belts are
compatible with this child restraint.
• Switchable retractor
These belts switch from ELR to ALR (Automatic Locking
Retractor). You must have the vehicle belts in the locking
mode to use them. Follow the instructions in the
installation sections.
• ALR (Automatic Locking Retractor)
These belts lock after pulling the webbing out and letting the
belt go back into the retractor an inch or two. Follow the
instructions in the installation sections.
1. Place Child Restraint in
Vehicle Rear-Facing
With child restraint in the
most reclined position,
place child restraint in the
back seat.
Check for proper recline.
NOTE: Store top anchorage
hook (tether) on the base.
See section E-1.
For children between 5-22 lbs (2.3-10 kg), the bottom
level to ground line MUST be level to the ground.
For children 22-35 lbs
(10.1-16 kg) and can sit
up unassisted, rotate the
child restraint between the
2 level to ground lines. Start
by making the bottom level to
ground line level, then rotate
seat up. DO NOT rotate past
the top most upright level to
ground line.
Adjust child restraint if
needed.
You may need to place a
A
large rolled towel(s) or foam
pool noodle(s) (A) under the
front of the child restraint
to help achieve the correct
recline. Check often to be
sure padding is still in place
and the LATCH belt is tight.
