PRE-INSTALLATION
Consult the vehicle owner's handbook for location of anchor fittings or anchorage points and the
possible use of spacers. Some vehicles may have an anchor fitting fitted by the vehicle
manufacturer. If anchorage points cannot be found refer to car manufacturer or local child restraint
fitting station or traffic authority for optimum position of anchorage point and the use of spacers.
UPPER ANCHORAG E STRAP
IMPORTANT WARNING: THE ATTACHMENT CLIP COVER MUST ALWAYS BE USED AS IT PREVENTS
THE RISK OF INCORRECT FITMENT OF THE ATTACHMENT CLIP TO THE ANCHOR FITTING. ALWAYS
ENSURE THAT THE ATTACHMENT CLIP IS CORRECTLY ENGAGED TO THE ANCHOR FITTING AND NOT
HOOKED OR FITTED TO ANY OTHER OBJECT BEFORE EACH USE OF THE RESTRAINT. THIS IS ESPECIALLY
IMPORTANT IN VEHICLES SUCH AS STATION WAGONS, VANS, HATCH BACKS OR VEHICLES WITHOUT A
FIXED PARCEL SHELF, SINCE THE ANCHOR POINT IS USUALLY NOT VISIBLE.
IMPORTANT INSTALLATION NOTE:
In some vehicles the anchor fitting in the rear vertical panel can only be installed in one way. Please refer to vehicle owner's
handbook or a child restraint fitting station for correct method.

HOW TO SET-UP
SETTING UP THE HARNESS
A.
B.
C.
D.
E.
Sit the restraint on a flat ground and supported from behind so that it will not tip over.
Get the child to sit comfortably in position.
Determine the desired shoulder strap position.
Remove the child and adjust the shoulder straps using the following methods.
Repeat steps A-C to confirm the correct set-up of the built-in harness.
ADJUSTING SHOULDER HARNESS STRAPS HEIGHT
Correct fitment of the harness is very important as it restrains
the baby in the restraint. The harness must fit firmly around
upper torso of the baby and be positioned so as to leave the
baby's arms and legs free.
For baby up to 12 kg the shoulder straps must
be in the slots which are nearest to the child’s
shoulders, but not lower than the child’s
shoulders. If your baby weighs more than 12 kg
then the restraint should be converted for child
use. (Refer to Forward Facing section starting
on page 14.)

TO BE USED WITH A LAP-SASH OR LAP ONLY SEAT BELT IN THE FRONT OR BACK OF MOST CARS WITH
FORWARD-FACING SEATS.
The purchaser should check the measurements between the
front of the seat back of the rear seat and all front seats in
the car in which the child restraint is intended to be used, to
ensure that the space is sufficient.
In certain vehicles, where the rear seat is too small, the only
position possible for the restraint is the front seat adjusted
as rearward as possible. When using the restraint in the
front seat, do not use the rear seat. The upper anchorage
strap will need to pass the rear seating position to attach to
an anchorage point.

CARE & MAINTENANCE
REGULAR CARE OF THIS RESTRAINT:
Please check the following items regularly to ensure the safety of your child:
A. Check the webbing for fraying.
B. Check that the buckle clicks and is not sluggish or sticky in operation.
C. Ensure there are no cracks in moulding or the plastic moulding.
D. Check the Harness Adjuster is operating and is clamping the webbing.
