3. Pull the harness over the infant’s head and insert
the metal tongue on the harness,
intothe groove
between
the child’s legs until it snaps. Pull up on
the metal tongue to be certain it is securely
latched.
(Figure A) DO NOT use this product
without fastening
the harness.
4. To release the buckle, push the red button in
front of the latch tongue and the buckle tongue
will pop out of the latch. (Frgure B)
6. The harness must be on the infant’s shoulders
and must be snug against the infant with no more
than two finger-widths
of slack between
the
harness and child. (Figure C) To tighten the
harness,
pull the strap through the adjuster
(Figure D). To loosen the harness,
lift the adjuster
(Figure E) and pull the strap from front of seat.
5. Adjust the plastic harness tie so that it is on the
midpoint of the baby’s chest and holds the shoulder
belts on baby’s shoulders.

If your auto has a three-point
belt system (a lap
and shoulder belt), you can route the shoulder
belt through the belt clip on the back of the child

Note: Support baby’s head. For about the first three
months, a baby’s head needs extra support.
Use a
small rolled towel on each side of baby’s head.
7. When you have your infant securely
belted rnto
the restraint,
place it on your auto seat. (Remember,
the center rear seating position
is the
safest.) The ON MY WAYTM Rear Facing Infant

USING
THE
CONVENIENCE
BASE
In some vehicles, it may be necessary
to place a tightly
rolled towel or small blanket underneath
the front edge
of the base, in order to provide enough
recline for an
infant’s head to lie back comfortably.
(Figure M)
1. Secure the base to your automobile
seat by
routing the vehicle seat belt through the openings
on the sides of the base as shown. (Figure K)
Pull the auto seat belt as tight as possible and check
to be sure the child restraint is secure and stable.
Always test your seat installation
by forcibly tilting it
from side to side. Make sure that the seat belt holds
the seat securely
in place. The child restraint should
not move more than l- 2 inches (2550mm).
If the
belt slips, try turning the adjustable
end of the belt
upside down before buckling it. This procedure
may
defeat the adjustment
mechanism
and prevent the
belt from loosening.
Again, test to make sure that it
is secure.
If your automobile
has a three-point
belt system (a
lap and shoulder
belt) route both belts through the
openings
as shown.
(Figure L)
1
If your auto has a three-point
seat belt with a free
sliding buckle tongue, you must install the locking
clip. See the “Using a Metal Locking Clip” instructions.
IMPORTANT:
Be certain that the release button of
the auto seat belt does not contact a side or edge of
the child restraint.
Otherwise
the auto seat belt may
accldently
release.
If your particular
seat belt allows
the buckle to fall into a questronable
location, turn
the buckle upslde down so the push button faces
away from the child restraint or use another seating
position.
2. Secure the child restraint to the base by placmg
seat into base (Figure N) until it firmly “snaps”
into place. Rotate handle until it locks into place
behind child. (Figure 0)
In some vehicles,
it may be necessary
to place a
tightly rolled towel or small blanket underneath
the
front edge of the child restraint, in order to provide
enough recline for an infant’s head to lie back
comfortably.
(Figure J)
,
Pull the auto seat belt as tight as possible and check
to be sure the base is secure and stable, by moving
the base side to side. It should not move more than
1-2 inches (25~50mm).
If your auto has a lap/ shoulder
belt with a free
sliding buckle tongue, you must install the locking
clip as shown in the “Using a Metal Locking Clip”
instructions.

SAFETY
TIPS
Everyone
rides buckled
up or the car doesn’t
go.
Make no exceptions
for adults or children.
If someone
unbuckles,
stop thecar. Being firm andconsistent
right
from the start will mean fewer discipline
problems
as
children get older. An unrestrained
child or adult can
be thrown into and injure other passengers,
The two upright positions
are for use forward
facing
with toddlers weighing between
20 and 40 Ibs.
(mass 9 and 18 kg). (Figures
B & C)
If your child restraint has a vinyl pad, travel in
sunny weather
could be uncomfortable
for your
baby. Buy or make a fabric cover with holes for
the harness.
Also, cover the seat with a lightcolored blanket when you leave the car. This will
keep the metal parts from getting too hot. Feel
the seat before you put your baby back in it.
l
Never try to tend to a crying baby’s needs while
driving.
Never take a baby out of the child
restraint for comforting
while the car is moving.
l
Don’t allow a child in a car to have anything
like a bottle, lollipop
or ice cream on a stick.
A bump or swerve
could cause these objects
to injure the child.

TIPS
Everyone
rides buckled

go.
Make no exceptions
for adults or children.
If someone
unbuckles,
stop the car. Being firm and consistent

children get older. An unrestrained
child or adult can
be thrown into and injure other passengers.
Never try to tend to a crying baby’s needs while
driving.
Never take a baby out of the child
restraint for comforting
while the car is moving.
Don’t allow a child in a car to have anything
like a lollipop
or ice cream on a stick.
A collision,
bump or swerve
could cause
these objects
to injure the child.
When using this restraint
forward
facing in a
seating
location
that has the seat belt forward
of

If your child restraint has a vinyl pad, travel in
sunny weather could be uncomfortable
for your
baby. Buy or make a fabric cover with holes for
the harness.
Also, cover the seat with a lightcolored blanket when you leave the car. This will
keep the metal parts from getting too hot. Feel
the seat before you put your baby back in it.
3. The harness straps on the -Car
Seat can
be threaded through 3 slots in the backrest.
The
lowest two slots are for infants with the seat in the
rear facing position only. When using the seat rear
facing, the harness straps should be at shoulder
height or lower. The upper
slot must be used
when the seat is in the forward
facing position.
(Figure F)
Never try to tend to a crying baby’s needs while
driving.
Never take a baby out of the child
restraint for comforting
while the car is moving.
Don’t allow a child in a car to have anything
like a bottle, lollipop
or ice cream on a stick.
A bump or swerve
could cause these objects
to injure the child.

Accordin
to accident statistics, children are safer ~~~hcnpr~q~e~-ly
restrainec f in the rear seating positions rather than in the front se,lting
positions.
When usin the Two-in-One u as a booster seat (without the 5-point
harness) ons y use a la /shoulder vehicle belt system to secure the
restraint in a vehicle. f his restraint is certified tor use in motor \rehicles.
When used with the 5-point harness system, the Two-in-One“’ is certified
for use in aircraft. When used ds a booster (without the 5-point i~rnc~ss
system) it is NOT certified for use in aircraft. Belt-posillonm r booster
seats require a shoulder/lap belt system, \vhich is not alv,iila t; le on
aircraft.
If the Two-in-One” is used in a front passenger seat with ‘~11,tirbag, move
the vehicle seat as far back from the airbag as possible. I’lease refer to
your vehicle owner’s manual for child restraint installation instructions.
Some features of vehicle belts and vehicle seats that aid adult comfort
and rotection are not compatible with child restraints. In some vehicles,
a chi 7d restraint may not fit securely in some, or any, seating positions.
This product meets the Society of Automotive Engineers Recommended
Practice (SAE Jl819) for the design of child restraints. Read your vehicle
owner’s manual and check that the vehicle seat is designed to hold a
child restraint and also meets SAE J 1819. If the vehicle scat is not
designed to hold a child restraint, move the restraint to another location.
If the vehicle seat requires additional hardware or attachments
to hold our child restraint securely, call your \tehicle dealer to
obtain t Yje necess~ary attnchm~~nts.

This child restraint conforms to
Canada Motor Vehicle Safety
Standards, Section 213.2.
Do not use this restraint in any
automobile position equipped
with an airbag. Airbags can
seriously injure or kill children
under 13 years of age.
This child restraint must be
securely belted to the vehicle,
even when not occupied. In an
accident an unsecured child
restraint may injure other
occupants.
.
According to accident statistics,
children are safer when properly
restrained in the rear seating

rear is the safest. (WARNING:
Booster must be used with shield
when restrained by a lap belt
only.)
l
To protect your auto upholstery,
use a towel beneath and behind
the booster seat.

When using a “MANUALLY ADJUSTABLE” seat belt (one that does
not automatically tighten), always
test the booster’s installation by
forcibly tilting it from the side. If you
can tilt the booster more than 25-50
mm (l-2 inches), the seat belt is too
loose. If the belt slips, twist the
adjustable end of the belt upside
down before buckling it. This
procedure defeats the adjustment
mechanism and prevents the belt
from loosening. Again, test to make
sure that the booster is secure.
