Seat Features:
The seat on your Dreamer Design stroller is equipped with many features for
parent and child comfort and convenience.
5 Point Harness:
You will want to do a general positioning of the harness before placing your
passenger in the seat. Once your passenger is in the seat, you will want to
do a final harness adjustment.
A. Shoulder Height Adjustment: Push down on the silver center button
located between the passenger's knees. While depressing the button, pull
the webbing completely up through the tunnel that goes up the back of the
seat. This allows you to position the height of the shoulder straps. Shoulder
straps should be placed behind the back at shoulder blade level so the
shoulder straps are wrapping up around the shoulders, not resting just
above the shoulders.
B. Pelvic strap positioning: The pelvic strap slides back and forth on the
seating area. This strap should be positioned slightly under the passenger’s
pelvic area to keep the passenger from sliding out of the harness and seat.
C. Girth Adjustment: Pull the excess webbing from the height adjustment
strap through the shoulder straps by pulling the webbing located by the side
D. Now you are ready to place your passenger in the stroller. Seat your
passenger, place their arms through the shoulder straps, double check
shoulder strap location and make final adjustment. Double check pelvic strap
placement and make final adjustment. Now clip the side buckles into place.
Depress the center buckle and pull down on center strap until the harness is
pulled securely over your passenger. A good fit is reflected in placing 2 fingers
under the shoulder straps with no more room.
This initial adjustment process seems lengthy, but now that it is done only
incremental adjustments will need to be made as your passenger grows or
wears heavier clothing.
WARNING: To avoid serious injury from falling or sliding
out of the stroller, always use the harness. Never leave
your passenger unattended while in the stroller.
Seat Recline:
The amount of recline on the seat is adjusted by holding the black plastic
adjustable clip behind the seat and pulling the strap to make the seat sit
more upright or further back.
WARNING: To avoid serious injury, never use the reclined
position unless firmness panels are in place. Child may
slip into leg opening and get hurt.
