notice

series of amendments, for general use in vehicles and it will fit
most, but not all car seats.
2. A correct fit is likely if the vehicle manufacturer has declared that the
vehicle is capable of accepting a ‘Universal’ child restraint for this age
group.
3. This child restraint has been classified as ‘Universal’ under more stringent
conditions than those which applied to earlier designs which do not
carry this notice.
4. If in doubt, consult either the child restraint manufacturer or the retailer.
5. Only suitable if the approved vehicles are fitted with 3 point static or retractor
safety belts approved to UN/ECE Regulation No.16 or other equivalent

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 can be installed in either a forward or rearward facing position in
passenger seats.
Do not use on side facing or rear facing vehicle 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.
■ When using the child seat, it is most important that the car seat belt is correctly
routed. Ensure the belt straps are not kinked or twisted.
■ 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.
■ 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.
■ 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 tamper-proof, 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.
■ The safest seating position for a child car seat is on the rear seat of a vehicle.

Anyone, especially children, travelling in the front seat of a car must be properly

important notes
■ This user guide should be stored in the storage compartment at the rear of the seat.
■ When the child seat is not in use, it is recommended that it is 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.
■ 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 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.

Release the keeper for the

liner and cover.
Re-assemble the harness by threading the keeper
of the shoulder restraint back through the desired
slots in the cover, liner and seat.
IMPORTANT : make sure you thread the keeper
back into the slot below. Use the other harness for
reference. Feed the shoulder strap through the
same slot and re-attach onto the metal retaining
yoke. Then repeat the same procedures for the
shoulder strap and restraint on the other side.
Make sure there are no kinks or twists in the
straps. When completed, replace cover on seat
shell.
Note: when moving the harness to the top slots, you must move the seat into the most upright
position before feeding the keeper through the slot. At the rear of the seat, then push the keeper
down through the gap between base and seat. Then fully recline the seat again to be able to feed
the keeper back through the slot below. Repeat the process to re-attach the shoulder strap onto the
metal yoke.

RECLINED POSITION.

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 you have installed your child seat properly using a 3 point lap belt - see section 8,
fitting your child seat into your car.
3. Check that your child seat is secure before each journey.
4. Make sure that there are no kinks or twists in the car seat belt.
REMEMBER: Misusing your child seat will reduce the protection and safety you offer your
child.

care of your product
removing the fabric cover
■ The fabric cover can be removed from the seat.
■ To remove the harness, follow the procedure set out in section 6 to the stage that both
shoulder straps and restraints are released and passed through the cover. Then pass
the loose ends of the shoulder straps through the buckle connectors.
■ To remove the crotch strap, fully recline the seat, and lift cover of front of the seat. Put
hand below shell to access metal keeper of the crotch strap. Twist and pass metal
keeper through slot in base. Carefully remove the cover from the seat.
■ When putting the cover back on the seat, ensure that you push the edges of the fabric
cover back under the plastic cover of the one pull harness adjuster for a neat finish.
cleaning the seat
■ See sewn in label for washing instructions.
■ The harness and plastic parts can be sponged with a mild detergent and warm water.
Ensure no soap gets into the buckle or adjusters.
Do not use chemical cleaners or bleach on any part of the car seat.
Dry thoroughly before use.

the highest safety standards.

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.
