1 safety warnings

PLEASE READ THOROUGHLY BEFORE COMMENCING INSTALLATION AS AN

INCORRECT INSTALLATION COULD BE DANGEROUS.

DO NOT USE THIS CHILD SEAT IN PASSENGER SEATS EQUIPPED WITH AIRBAGS.

■ This child seat must only be installed in a forward facing position in passenger seats.

Do not use on side facing or rear facing seats.

Never use this child seat without fastening the childs’ harness correctly, and never attempt to use it without fastening it into the car as described in these instructions.

Do not add to or modify the seat in any way.

■ In the event of an emergency it is important that the child can be released quickly. This means that the buckle is not fully tamperproof and so your child must be taught never to play with the buckle.

Do not leave your child unattended in the seat at any time.

■ It is recommended that this car seat should be changed when it has been subjected to violent stresses in an accident or has become badly worn.

Periodically inspect the harness for wear, paying particular attention to the attachment points, stitching and adjusting devices.

■ Ensure that no part of the seat is trapped in a door or folding seat. If your car has a folding rear seat, ensure that it is correctly latched in the upright position.

■ Car interiors can become very hot when in direct sunlight, it is therefore recommended that the child seat is covered when not in use. This prevents components, particularly those attached to the child seat, becoming hot and burning the child.

■ Luggage and other heavy or sharp objects should be secured in the car. Loose objects are liable to cause injury in the event of an accident.

■ The safest seating position for a child car seat is on the rear seat of a vehicle.

9 final checklist

See section 8, fitting your child seat into your car.

3.

Check that your child seat is secure before each journey.
