WARNING
To reduce the risk

More children are killed every year as passengers
in car crashes than by any other type of injury. To
reduce the risk of SERIOUS INJURY or DEATH, read this
owner’s manual and your vehicle owner’s manual before installing and using this child restraint. Using a child restraint
makes a big difference. By properly using this child restraint
and following these instructions (and the instructions that
accompany your vehicle), you will greatly reduce the risk of
serious injury or death to your child from a crash. Do not
be misled by the commonly used term “safety seat;” no
restraint system can prevent all injuries in all crashes. Many
properly restrained adults and children are injured in motor
vehicle crashes, including relatively minor crashes. A properly used child restraint is the best way to minimize injuries
to your child and to increase the chances for your child’s
survival in most crashes.

WARNING
Location Warnings
• According to statistics, children are safer when properly restrained in a rear seating position than in the front
seating position. Generally, the center rear position is
safest and should be used if available. Children under
13 should ride in the back seat of the vehicle.
• ONLY use this child restraint on forward-facing vehicle
seats. DO NOT use this restraint with vehicle seats
that face the rear or side.
• ONLY use this child restraint on vehicle seats with
backs that lock into place.
• Some child restraints do not fit all vehicles or all seating locations. There are many thousands of combinations of vehicle makes, models, child restraint configurations, seat belt designs and seat cushion shapes. The
easiest way to determine whether your child restraint
is suitable for a particular seating position is to check
for a tight installation. If the child restraint can not
be properly installed, DO NOT use the child restraint.
Consult vehicle owner’s manual, try a different seating
location or call Evenflo at 1-800-233-5921.
Air Bag Warning
• DO NOT use this restraint in the front seat of a vehicle
equipped with an active air bag. Air bags may cause
serious injury or death to children under 13 years of
age. If your vehicle has an air bag, refer to your vehicle
owner’s manual for child restraint installation.
• If the rear seat of your vehicle is equipped with side air
bags:
Vehicles built prior to the 2002 model year:
DO NOT use this restraint in a vehicle seating position
equipped with a side air bag unless authorized by the
vehicle manufacturer.
Model year 2002 and newer vehicles:
Refer to your vehicle owner’s manual before placing
this restraint in a seating position equipped with a
side air bag. DO NOT place any objects between the
restraint and the side air bag, as an expanding air bag
may cause the items to strike your child.
Premature Infants
• DO NOT use this or any child restraint with a premature infant until after consulting your doctor. Premature infants may have difficulty breathing when in a
sitting position.
2
WARNING
Rear-facing Warnings
• DO NOT use this child restraint rear facing in a vehicle
equipped with lap belts that only lock during a sudden stop or crash (emergency locking retractors). You
must use a seating location with a locking seat belt.
Check your vehicle owner’s manual to see if you have
lap belts with emergency locking retractors.
• When using this restraint rear-facing, DO NOT loosen
the vehicle seat belt to provide more leg room as this
will prevent the child restraint from protecting your
child.
• Fold-down armrests could pose a hazard to a rearfacing child in certain types of collisions. Consult your
vehicle owner’s manual before installing any rearfacing child restraint in front of a fold-down armrest.
• NEVER turn a child restraint forward-facing with an
infant weighing less than 20 lbs (9 kg) or less than one
year of age, crash forces may cause serious injury or
death.
• The headrest on the vehicle seat that the child faces
when sitting in the rear facing mode should be placed
in the lowest position. The vehicle seat back that the
child faces must be fully padded and free of any hard
objects.
Forward-facing Warnings
•If your child weighs more than 50 lbs (22.6 kg) or
their shoulders are above the highest harness level,
you MUST discontinue using this child restraint as it
may no longer adequately protect your child.
Seat Belt Warnings
• DO NOT use this child restraint in a vehicle with doormounted seat belts.
• DO NOT use this child restraint in a vehicle with seat
belts that automatically move along the vehicle frame
when the door is opened. These seat belts will not
hold a child restraint properly.
• Use only with vehicle seat belts that can be pulled
tight and will stay locked.
• DO NOT use this child restraint if it moves more than
1 inch (25 mm) forward or side-to-side at the vehicle
belt path. Serious injury or death may result from poor
installation. If you can not tightly secure the child
restraint, try again or move it to another location.
• If the vehicle seat belts are not routed and fastened
correctly, the child restraint may not protect your child
in a crash.
3
WARNING
• DO NOT allow the seat belt release button to touch
the child restraint. Accidental contact may cause the
seat belt to release. If necessary, turn the seat belt
release button away from the child restraint or move
the child restraint to a different location.
• Failure to adjust the harness or seat belts snugly
around your child may result in your child striking the
vehicle’s interior during a sudden stop or crash.
Serious injury or death may occur.
• Remove locking clip from vehicle seat belt when not
used with a child restraint, or the vehicle seat belt will
not properly restrain an adult or child. Serious injury
could occur.
LATCH Warnings
• ONLY use for securing child restraint to lower LATCH
anchor points.
• ALWAYS read and follow exactly the instructions that
accompany your vehicle and child restraint.
• NEVER attach two hooks to one vehicle lower anchor
point.
• DO NOT use the vehicle seat belts to install a child
restraint when using the LATCH system.
• This LATCH system is intended to be used ONLY as
described in these instructions. Serious injury or death
may result from misuse.
• When not in use, the LATCH harness and hook should
be securely clipped onto the base of the child restraint.
Keep out of reach of children.
• ALWAYS be sure that the LATCH hook is fully engaged onto the LATCH anchor point by pulling hard
on the LATCH harness. If it is not totally engaged, the
LATCH system will not secure your child restraint.
Serious injury or death may result.
• DO NOT use this child restraint if it moves more than
1 inch (25 mm) forward or side-to-side at the vehicle
belt path. Serious injury or death may result from poor
installation. If you can not tightly secure the child
restraint, try again or move it to another location.
• In addition to these instructions, read and follow your
vehicle owner’s manual regarding installation of the
child restraint and LATCH. If there is a discrepancy,
follow your vehicle owner’s manual.
Top Tether Warnings
• When not in use, the Tether Strap and hook should be
securely stored on the back of the child restraint. Keep
out of reach of children.
4
WARNING
• To avoid a strangulation hazard, you MUST tightly roll
or fold excess tether strap and secure with the rubber
band. Attach the tether hook to the storage clip when
not in use. This will keep an unused tether from
hitting someone during a crash.
• The top tether strap MUST be used if your vehicle has
a plain lap belt that only locks during a sudden stop or
crash (emergency locking retractors) AND/OR if your
vehicle has seat belts whose buckles extend from a slot
in the vehicle seat cushion in front of the crease where
the seat and back cushions meet. Otherwise the child
restraint cannot be installed tightly, increasing the risk of
injury to your child. Check your vehicle owner’s manual
to see if your vehicle has emergency locking retractors.
Additional Warnings
• DO NOT use child restraint if it is damaged, broken,
or missing parts.
• DO NOT use this restraint if it has been involved in a
crash. It must be replaced.
• NEVER leave child unattended.
• DO NOT remove back cover.
• In hot or sunny weather, ALWAYS check the seat, the
buckle and LATCH hooks, and adjuster for hot areas
before placing a child into the child restraint. Your
child could be burned. Cover the child restraint with a
light colored blanket when you leave the vehicle.
• This child restraint must be securely belted to the
vehicle at all times. An unsecured child restraint may
injure someone if a crash occurs.
• DO NOT attach additional padding, toys, or other devices not made by Evenflo to the child restraint. Items
not tested with the child restraint could injure the child.
• Failure to follow installation instructions could result in
serious injury or death. These instructions and the instructions in your vehicle owner’s manual must be followed carefully. If there is a conflict between the two,
the vehicle owner’s manual regarding child restraint
installation must be followed.
• In cold weather, DO NOT dress the child in bulky
clothing like snowsuits if the child is riding in a child
restraint. Bulky coats/snowsuits make it difficult to
properly tighten the harness to the child which may
allow the child to be ejected from the restraint during
a crash. If necessary, place a blanket over the
harnessed child without interfering with the child
restraint harness system.
5
Safe Practices
• Everyone rides buckled up or the vehicle does
not go. Make no exceptions for adults or children. If
someone unbuckles, stop the vehicle. Being firm and
consistent from the start will mean fewer discipline
problems as children get older. An unrestrained person
can be thrown into and injure other passengers.
• Many safety advocates and healthcare professionals
recommend that children ride rear facing for as long as
possible. See limitations recommended on rear-facing
use on page 1.
• NEVER try to tend to a crying baby’s needs while
driving. NEVER take a baby out of a child restraint for
comforting while the vehicle is moving.
• DO NOT allow a child in a vehicle to have objects such
as lollipops or ice cream on a stick. The object can injure
the child if the vehicle swerves or hits a bump.
• DO NOT feed an infant who is riding in a child
restraint.
• Put sharp or heavy items in the trunk. Anything loose
can be deadly in a crash.
• For child restraints equipped with leather seat pads,
cover your seat with a blanket in warm weather.
Leather can become very hot in direct sunlight.

Forward-facing Installation Using LATCH
LATCH is a system for attaching the child restraint to
your vehicle seat. It is to be used in place of your
vehicle’s seat belts, and can be used in vehicles with
LATCH anchors. Your vehicle owner’s manual may refer
to this system as ISOFIX.
WARNING
Attach tether hook G to the tether anchor bracket H
in your automobile.
Pull the end of the strap I to tighten. Remove all
slack in the strap.
WARNING
• To avoid a strangulation hazard, you MUST tightly roll
or fold excess tether strap and secure with the strap/
rubber band.
• Attach the tether hook to the storage clip when not in
use. This will keep an unused tether from hitting someone during a crash.
After adjusting the top tether strap, you may have
excess strap; DO NOT cut it off. If you do, it may not
be long enough to use in another vehicle. Instead,
tightly roll up the excess tether strap and place the
rubber band around the bundle.
NOTE: Refer to your vehicle owner’s manual for the
location of the tether anchor bracket in your vehicle.
Older vehicles may not come equipped with anchor
bracket hardware. Check with your vehicle dealer.
If you have questions regarding tether anchors which
are not addressed by the vehicle owner’s manual, or
answered by an authorized dealer/vehicle manufacturer
call Evenflo’s ParentLink at 1-800-233-5921.
• ONLY use for securing child restraint to lower LATCH
anchor points.
• ALWAYS read and follow exactly the instructions that
accompany your vehicle and child restraint.
• NEVER attach two hooks to one vehicle lower
anchor point.
• DO NOT use the vehicle seat belts to install a child
restraint when using the LATCH system.
• This LATCH system is intended to be used ONLY as
described in these instructions. Serious injury or death
may result from misuse.
• When not in use, the LATCH harness and hook should
be securely clipped onto the base of the child restraint.
Keep out of reach of children.
• ALWAYS be sure that the LATCH hook is fully
engaged onto the LATCH anchor point by pulling hard
on the LATCH harness. If it is not totally engaged, the
LATCH system will not secure your child restraint.
Serious injury or death may result.
• In addition to these instructions, read and follow your
vehicle owner’s manual regarding installation of child
restraints and LATCH. If there is a discrepancy, follow
your vehicle owner’s manual.

Adjusting the Crotch Strap
7
As your child grows, you will need to change the crotch
strap position so that it is in the slot closest to your child.
The crotch strap should ALWAYS be as close as possible
to, but NEVER under, the child’s bottom.
Front Position
Rear Position
The harness straps must be snug against the child.
A snug strap should not allow any slack. It lies in a
relatively straight line without sagging. It does not
press on the child’s flesh or push the child’s body into
an unnatural position. Check the harness straps near
the shoulders for slack and adjust as needed.
B

To adjust the crotch strap, grasp the bottom of the
strap A and twist it to align with the length wise
