Safety Warnings
KEEP THIS OWNER’S MANUAL ALWAYS WITH THE CAR SEAT. PROVISIONS
ARE MADE ON THE REAR OF THE SEAT SHELL.
PLEASE READ THOROUGHLY BEFORE COMMENCING INSTALLATION AS
AN INCORRECT INSTALLATION COULD BE DANGEROUS.
DO NOT USE THIS CHILD SEAT IN PASSENGER SEATS EQUIPPED WITH AIR
BAGS.
This child seat must only be installed in the rearward facing position. Do not use on
side facing or rear facing seats.
Never use this child seat without fastening the child’s harness correctly, and never
attempt to use it without fastening it into the car as described in these instructions.
It is most important that the car seat belt is correctly routed with the lap portion of
the belt through the guides marked with light blue arrows and the diagonal belt
through the guide marked with a dark blue arrow. Ensure the belt webbing is not
kinked.
The child seat must be tightened down on the upholstery as tight as possible
to ensure maximum protection – the recommended method is shown in these
instructions.
Do not add to or modify the seat in any way.

Safety Warnings
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.
Do not leave your child unattended in the seat at any time.
The carrying handle must be in the correct raised position when used in the car.
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.
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.
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.

Important Notes
Keep this user guide in a safe place where it can easily be found.
When child seats are not in use, it is recommended that they be fastened
into the car with a seat belt to avoid being thrown about in the event of an
accident.
In an emergency your child can be released quickly by pressing the red
button on the harness buckle.
Do not remove the polystyrene impact pad located between the seat shell
and the cover.
If you travel with passengers using both the front and rear seats, the lighter
occupants should be in the rear seats and the heavier occupants in the front
of the vehicle. When a child seat is in the front seat, the lighter passenger
should be behind the child.
Do not allow the child seat to come into contact with corrosive substances
e.g. battery acid or solvents.

Fitting Your Child Seat Into Your Car
Attached to the side of your child seat is a
level indicator to help properly recline the child
seat on the vehicle seat. It is very important
for your child’s safety that your child seat be
properly reclined. Proper use of the level
indicator requires that your vehicle be parked
on level ground during installation of the child
seat.
Look straight on at the level indicator to check
it. If the level indicator shows only blue, then
the safety seat is properly levelled.
If the seat is too upright or too reclined
showing any orange in the level indicator, shift
the child seat up or down on the ends of seat
until level indicator shows ONLY blue.

Accessories
Your child seat and its cover have been carefully designed, manufactured and tested
to the highest safety standards.
Do not put your child’s safety at risk by using without a seat cover. The seat cover
should not be replaced with any other than the one recommended by Mothercare,
because the cover constitutes an integral part of the restraint performance.
The safety of this seat may be compromised by the use of accessories not approved
by Mothercare.
OPTIONAL CAR SEAT BASE :
For your added convenience, an optional car seat base is available to purchase
separately.
The base makes fitting your car seat into your car much simpler. Once the base
is fitted correctly into the car, the car seat can be simply "clicked" in and out each
time thereafter, minimising disturbance to your baby.
For further details, please contact your nearest Mothercare store.

Final Checklist
However safe a child seat is, however well built it is, your child’s safety depends on
you. Read this final checklist once you have fitted your child seat in your car.
1.
Check that you have adjusted the harness to suit your child. A fitting for winter
clothes will be too loose for a child wearing summer clothes.
2.
Check that you have installed your child seat properly using a 3 point lap and
diagonal belt. – see section 11, Fitting Your Child Seat Into Your Car.
3.
Check that your child seat is secure before each journey.
REMEMBER: Misusing your child seat will reduce the protection and safety
you offer your child.
