Information
This instruction manual covers various models under the Model number CS4513 / CS4613.
These child restraints are installed in the rear of the vehicle and can be used either
rearward-facing or forward-facing. They can either be installed in the vehicle using the vehicle
seatbelt & the top tether strap, or if applicable, the flexible Lower Anchorage Connector (LAC)
straps attached to the vehicle’s ISOFIX anchor & top tether strap. This Convertible Car Seat is
designed to be used by children from approximately 0 months of age up to approximately 4
years of age.
Air Cocoon Technology™ - A Protective Embrace
Air Cocoon Technology™ (A.C.T.) enhances protection by
dramatically reducing the impact forces during a crash. A.C.T.
utilises a layer of air held inside the entirety of the child restraint
shell, offering an increased level of protection across the entire
surface area of the restraint. Your child is quite literally cradled in
a cocoon of air, offering a true 180 degrees of protection to your
child's vital organs.
Air Cocoon Technology™ integrated child restraints start their life
as an actual pillow of air. This pillow is moulded into a child
restraint, retaining the pillow-like construction while adding
incredible strength and structural integrity. This manufacturing
process is called blow-moulding. Air Cocoon Technology™
(A.C.T.) is an all encompassing protective ‘cocoon’ around your child.
ISOFIX Compatible
The ISOFIX compatible system for Australia requires an ISOFIX
compatible child restraint that complies with the Australian/New
Zealand Standard 1754, which connects to a vehicle's ISOFIX
low anchorages and top tether anchorage point by using the child
restraint's rigid or flexible lower attachment connectors and top
tether strap.
Note: ISOFIX compatible child restraints that comply with
AS/NZS 1754 will also be suitable for use in seating positions not
fitted with ISOFIX low anchorages. To install the child restraint in
the vehicle it will require the use of the vehicle seatbelt and top
tether strap.
Rigid or flexible connectors are incorporated into the design of
the child restraint at the time of manufacture and both types are
compatible with the vehicle's ISOFIX low anchorages.
No child restraint can guarantee absolute protection from injury in
every crash. However, to ensure that your child gets all the
protection designed into the restraint please read and follow the
instructions exactly and use only InfaSecure recommended parts
and accessories.
InfaSecure is an Australian owned and operated family business,
which can trace it's roots back over 60 years, becoming the
single largest Australian owned and operated child restraint
company in the country. Today, we are still growing, continuing to
innovate and provide high quality products at an affordable price.

THE SUITABILITY OF THE CHILD RESTRAINT TO GROUPS OF CHILDREN
TYPE A2
To be used only in a rearward-facing position until the infant’s shoulders reach the lower
shoulder height marker (approximately 12 months of age).
TYPE B
Then to be used in a forward-facing position until the child’s shoulders reach the upper
shoulder height marker (approximately 4 years of age).
Continue to use this child restraint until the child reaches this limit.
Do not use forward-facing until child’s shoulders are above the lower shoulder height marker.
Infants are at risk of serious injury if they face forward too early.
Children are at risk of serious injury if they move to booster seats too early.
Children who have outgrown this restraint are safest in a larger child restraint with an in-built
harness or a booster seat until their shoulders reach the upper shoulder height marker of the
restraint.
TO BE USED WITH A LAP-SASH/LAP-ONLY SEAT BELT OR ISOFIX LOW ANCHORAGES IN
THE BACK OF MOST CARS WITH FORWARD FACING SEATS.
The use of child restraints in the front seat may be restricted for children of specific ages by
local legislation.
Please check with your local Department of Transport.
!
IMPORTANT
• For a vehicle without a fixed parcel shelf an extension strap(s) may be needed.
If so ring (02) 4728 8090 for nearest supply location (refer to Page 49).
• Seatbelt extenders are not recommended to be used if the seatbelt is not long
enough to secure the child restraint. If seatbelts are too short then advice should be
sought from a child restraint fitter and their recommendation be considered before
using a seatbelt extender.

Set Up
General
The CS4513/CS4613 Child restraint has been designed and tested to meet the joint
Australian/New Zealand Standard with an inbuilt anti rebound feature and does not require
additional anti rebound bars or mechanisms to fulfil these requirements.
The CS4513/CS4613 Child restraint has also been designed to be a compact restraint to
enable multiple restraints to be used in the rear of most vehicles.
!
IMPORTANT
Care and attention should be given to ensure that the baby has adequate ventilation
and shading when in the restraint.
To achieve the necessary distribution of deceleration forces during a vehicle impact,
ensure the child is seated correctly in the child restraint and the harness is fitted and
adjusted as per these instructions.
Ensure the child restraint and child are rearward facing.
There is a real concern about the potential for an infant to be ejected and killed if the
baby is wrapped in a blanket or swaddled. The harness needs to fit the baby firmily and
any blanket or other covering may only be placed over the harness after the harness is
adjusted firmly. The infants legs are not to be bound or wrapped together and the arms
are not to be bound or wrapped together.
If the baby’s neck muscles are unable to support their head,
then the infant should remain rear facing.
630mm
The Purchaser should check the measurement between the
front of the seat back of the rear seat and all front seats in the
car in which the child restraint is intended to be used, to
ensure that the space is sufficient.
!

ISOFIX lower anchorages
Newer vehicles have one or more seating positions
with ISOFIX anchorages. If the vehicle is equipped
with ISOFIX anchorage, the lower anchor points may
be visible at the vehicle seat bight . If not visible, they
may be marked with this symbol.
See your vehicle owner’s manual for exact locations,
anchor identification, and requirements for use with a
child restraint.
Check vehicle owner’s manual for vehicle top tether
anchor locations. They may be identified using one of
the anchor symbols as shown.
!
IMPORTANT
ONLY use flexible LAC straps on the child
restraint in a seating position recommended
by vehicle manufacturer.
This restraint uses Flexible Lower Anchorage
Connector Straps. Flexible connectors: A pair of
flexible straps with connectors are located at the
base of the child restraint which connect to the
vehicle's ISOFIX low anchorages. The flexible
connectors are then adjusted to secure the child
restraint firmly to the vehicle. The top tether strap
must be anchored to the vehicle. The vehicle seatbelt
will not be required when the flexible connectors are
being used.
ISOFIX low anchorages are built in to the vehicle at
the time of manufacture, if the vehicle manufacturer
chooses to provide them. The number of ISOFIX low
anchorages will depend on the design of the vehicle.
Generally, ISOFIX low anchorages are located on the
two outer seating positions in the second row, and
not in the middle seating position.
If you wish to use the middle seating position in the
second row, you may still fit an ISOFIX compatible
child restraint in the middle position by using the
vehicle seatbelt and top tether strap.

THE SUITABILITY OF THE CHILD RESTRAINT TO GROUPS OF CHILDREN
TYPE A2
To be used only in a rearward-facing position until the infant’s shoulders reach the lower
shoulder height marker (approximately 12 months of age).
TYPE B
Then to be used in a forward-facing position until the child’s shoulders reach the upper
shoulder height marker (approximately 4 years of age).
Continue to use this child restraint until the child shoulders reaches this limit.
Do not use forward-facing until child’s shoulders are above the lower shoulder height marker.
Infants are at risk of serious injury if they face forward too early.
Children are at risk of serious injury if they move to booster seats too early.
Children who have outgrown this restraint are safest in a larger child restraint with an in-built
harness or a booster seat until their shoulders reach the upper shoulder height marker of the
restraint.
TO BE USED WITH A LAP-SASH/LAP-ONLY SEAT BELT OR ISOFIX LOW ANCHORAGES IN
THE BACK OF MOST CARS WITH FORWARD FACING SEATS.
The use of child restraints in the front seat may be restricted for children of specific ages by
local legislation.
Please check with your local Department of Transport.
!
IMPORTANT
• For a vehicle without a fixed parcel shelf an extension strap(s) may be needed.
If so ring (02) 4728 8080 for nearest supply location.
• Seatbelt extenders are not recommended to be used if the seatbelt is not long enough to
secure the child restraint. If seatbelts are too short then advice should be sought from a
child restraint fitter and their recommendation be considered before using a seatbelt
extender.

Newer vehicles have one or more seating positions
with ISOFIX anchorages. If the vehicle is equipped
with ISOFIX anchorage, the lower anchor points may
be visible at the vehicle seat bight . If not visible, they
may be marked with this symbol.
See your vehicle owner’s manual for exact locations,
anchor identification, and requirements for use with a
child restraint.
Check vehicle owner’s manual for vehicle top tether
anchor locations. They may be identified using one of
the anchor symbols as shown.
!
IMPORTANT
ONLY use flexible LAC straps on the child
restraint in a seating position recommended
by vehicle manufacturer.
This restraint uses Flexible Lower Anchorage
Connector Straps. Flexible connectors: A pair of
flexible straps with connectors are located at the
base of the child restraint which connect to the
vehicle's ISOFIX low anchorages. The flexible
connectors are then adjusted to secure the child
restraint firmly to the vehicle. The top tether strap
must be anchored to the vehicle. The vehicle seatbelt
will not be required when the flexible connectors are
being used.
ISOFIX low anchorages are built in to the vehicle at
the time of manufacture, if the vehicle manufacturer
chooses to provide them. The number of ISOFIX low
anchorages will depend on the design of the vehicle.
Generally, ISOFIX low anchorages are located on the
two outer seating positions in the second row, and
not in the middle seating position.
If you wish to use the middle seating position in the
second row, you may still fit an ISOFIX compatible
child restraint in the middle position by using the
vehicle seatbelt and top tether strap.

Insurers Information
If your restraint has been involved in a severe crash, you should destroy the
restraint even if no damage is obvious. Some insurance companies offer vehicle
insurance which covers or partially covers the replacement of your child restraint.
Contact your insurance company for further details.
Your insurance company may require you to keep the child restraint for assessment,
but do not use the child restraint after a severe crash. To assist you in making an
accident insurance claim cut the following statement and include it with your claim.
NOTICE TO INSURANCE COMPANY CHILD RESTRAINT INVOLVED
IN AN ACCIDENT
All InfaSecure child restraints are manufactured to Australian/New Zealand
Standards AS/NZS1754 which requires us to advise users of child
restraints to "Destroy the entire restraint if it has been in use in a severe
crash, even if no damage is obvious".
The Australian/New Zealand Standards committee, advise that this
statement applies whether a child was in the child restraint or not. We
consider a "severe crash" as being one where the main body structure of
the vehicle is distorted.
There is no method of determining if the restraint has been damaged and
we concur with the Australian/New Zealand Standards in recommending
destruction of the child restraint.
This notice is to advise you of the requirements of the Australian/New
Zealand Standards and our obligation in complying with the standards.
Please assist the owner of this restraint in their claim.
