More children are killed every year as passengers in
car crashes than by any other type of injury.
To reduce the risk of SERIOUS INJURY or DEATH, read
this owner’s manual and your vehicle owner’s manual
before installing and using this child restraint. Using a child
restraint makes a big difference. By properly using this
child restraint and following these instructions (and the
instructions that accompany your vehicle), you will greatly
reduce the risk of serious injury or death to the child from
a crash. Do not be misled by the commonly used term
“safety seat”; no restraint system can prevent all injuries in
all crashes. Many properly restrained adults and children
are injured in motor vehicle crashes, including relatively
minor crashes. A properly used child restraint is the best
way to minimize injuries to the child and to increase the
chances for the child’s survival in most crashes.
U.S. REGULATORY NOTICE
This child restraint meets all applicable requirements of
Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard 213.
For Canadian Models
CANADIAN REGULATORY NOTICE
This child restraint meets all applicable requirements of
Canadian Motor Vehicle Safety Standard CMVSS 213.2.

information about airbag safety.
• No restraint can guarantee absolute protection from
injury in every crash.
• To use this child restraint properly, children MUST
meet weight/size specifications as follows:
• The child weighs 18 to 49.8 kg (40 to 110 lbs).
• The child is between 110 to 145 cm (43.3 to 57
inches) tall AND the tops of his/her ears are at, or
below, the child restraint headrest.
• Child is four years old or older.
1
WARNING
Air Bag Warnings
• DO NOT use this restraint in the front seat of a vehicle
equipped with an air bag. Air bags may cause serious
injury or death to children 12 and under. If your
vehicle has an air bag, refer to your vehicle owner’s
manual for child restraint installation.
• If the rear seat of your vehicle is equipped with side
air bags, refer to the following information for proper
usage.
Vehicles built prior to the 2002 model year:
DO NOT use this restraint in a vehicle seating position
equipped with a side air bag unless authorized by the
vehicle manufacturer.
Model year 2002 and newer vehicles:
Refer to your vehicle owner’s manual before placing
this restraint in a seating position equipped with a side
air bag.
• DO NOT place any objects between the restraint and
the side air bag, as an expanding air bag may cause
the items to strike the child.
The back seat is the safest place for
children 12 and under.
2
WARNING
General Warnings
• Failure to follow installation instructions can result in
the child striking the vehicle’s interior during a sudden
stop or crash. Serious injury or death may result.
These instructions and the instructions in your vehicle
owner’s manual must be followed carefully. If there
is a conflict between the two, the vehicle owner’s
manual regarding child restraint installation must be
followed.
• NEVER leave child unattended.
• DO NOT use child restraint if it is damaged, broken,
or missing parts.
• DO NOT use this restraint if it has been involved in
a crash. It must be replaced.
• NEVER use this child restraint without the headrest
installed.
• NEVER use this child restraint rear-facing.
Location Warnings
• ALWAYS read and follow exactly the instructions that
accompany your vehicle and child restraint.
• According to statistics, children are safer when
properly restrained in a rear seating position than in
the front seating position. Generally, the center rear
position is safest and should be used, if available.
• Some child restraints do not fit all vehicles or all
seating locations. There are many thousands of
combinations of vehicle makes, models, child restraint
configurations, seat belt designs, and seat cushion
shapes. The easiest way to determine whether the
child restraint is suitable for a particular seating
position is to check for a tight installation. If the child
restraint cannot be properly installed, DO NOT use
the child restraint. Consult vehicle owner’s manual,
try a different seating location, or call Evenflo.
• ONLY use this child restraint on forward-facing
vehicle seats. DO NOT use this restraint with vehicle
seats that face the rear or side.
• ONLY use this child restraint on vehicle seats with
backs that lock into place.

WARNING
WARNING
Forward-facing Position Warnings
Additional Warnings
• Adjust, or remove, the vehicle headrest, in the seat
where the child restraint is to be fastened, so that
the back of the child restraint rests against the vehicle
seat back.
• The headrest on the vehicle seat in front of the child
should be put in its lowest position. The vehicle seat
back that the child faces must be fully padded and
free of any hard objects.
• In hot or sunny weather, ALWAYS check the seat for
hot areas before placing a child into the child restraint.
The child could be burned. Cover the child restraint
with a light colored blanket when you leave the vehicle.
• This child restraint must be securely fastened to the
vehicle, even when unoccupied, using the vehicle
seat belts. An unsecured child restraint may injure
someone if a crash occurs.
• DO NOT use the cup holder to store cans or hard
cups. Only for use with soft cups (such as styrofoam
or paper).
• DO NOT place any cups that contain hot liquids (such
as hot chocolate or tea) in the cup holder.
• DO NOT attach additional items to this child restraint
that are not approved by Evenflo. Items not tested
with the child restraint could injure the child.
• Failure to follow installation instructions could result
in serious injury or death. These instructions and the
instructions in your vehicle owner’s manual must be
followed carefully. If there is a conflict between the
two, the vehicle owner’s manual regarding child
restraint installation must be followed.
Seat Belt Warnings
• DO NOT use this child restraint in a vehicle with
door-mounted seat belts.
• DO NOT use this child restraint in a vehicle with seat
belts that automatically move along the vehicle frame
when the door is opened. These seat belts will not
hold a child restraint properly.
• If the vehicle seat belts are not routed and fastened
correctly, the child restraint may not protect the child
in a crash.
• DO NOT allow the seat belt release button to touch
the child restraint. Accidental contact may cause the
seat belt to release. If necessary, turn the seat belt
release button away from the child restraint or move
the child restraint to a different location.
• Failure to adjust the vehicle seat belts snugly around
the child may result in the child striking the vehicle’s
interior during a sudden stop or crash. Serious injury
or death may occur.
• When using this booster seat, NEVER use a lap belt
only. You MUST use vehicle seat belts that have a
lap/shoulder combination.
• The shoulder belt MUST be routed properly (p. 14).
• DO NOT use this booster seat if the child’s ears are
above the back of the booster seat headrest.
• The shoulder belt MUST NOT cross the child’s neck
or fall off the child’s shoulder. If you cannot adjust
the shoulder belt to properly lay midway between
the child’s shoulder and neck AND at or above the
shoulder, try another seating location or do not use
the booster seat.

Safe Practices
• Everyone rides buckled up or the vehicle does
not go. Make no exceptions for adults or children.
If someone unbuckles, stop the vehicle. Being firm
and consistent from the start will mean fewer discipline
problems as children get older. An unrestrained person
can be thrown into and injure other passengers.
• NEVER try to tend to a crying child’s needs while
driving. NEVER take a child out of a child restraint for
comforting while the vehicle is moving.
• DO NOT allow a child in a vehicle to have objects
such as lollipops or ice cream on a stick. The object
can injure the child if the vehicle swerves or hits a
bump.
• DO NOT feed a child who is riding in a child restraint.
• Put sharp or heavy items in the trunk. Anything loose
can be deadly in a crash.
Motor Vehicle/Aircraft Usage

When to Put Your Child
in a Booster Seat
Booster seats raise the child up and help to position the
vehicle lap and shoulder belt correctly. When the child is
properly restrained in a booster seat, their risk of injury
in all types of crashes is reduced, as the lap and shoulder
belt provides excellent restraint of both the upper and lower
torsos.
It is important for the child to sit properly within the
vehicle seat belts. When the vehicle seat belt is buckled,
the lap belt should be low on the hips, just touching the
thighs, and the shoulder belt should lie across the middle of
the shoulder. If the child leans out or moves the belt behind
the back or places it under the arm, it will not provide the
intended restraint.
There are a number of things to consider when deciding
whether the child is ready to sit in a booster seat, including:
the weight and height ratings on their current child seat,
the child’s own weight and height, their maturity, and the
seating positions available in your vehicle.
How can you tell if your child is ready to transition
to a booster seat?
You should consider using a booster seat if the following
conditions apply:
• The child is mature enough to sit in the booster seat and
not put the belts under their arm or behind their back.
• The child is approaching the weight or height limit of the
child restraint they are currently using.
• If you have a vehicle that does not have a tether anchorage but has lap/shoulder belts available in the back seat,
a booster seat may provide better protection than an
internal harness seat without the tether.
The shoulder belt MUST
be routed properly.
See page 14.
The shoulder belt
MUST cross midway
between child’s
shoulder and neck.
How is a booster seat used?
Using a booster seat is very similar to buckling yourself into
the vehicle:
• Read the instruction manuals for both the booster seat
and the vehicle before you start.
• Put the booster in the back seat in a location with a lap
and shoulder belt. Never use a booster with only a
lap belt, as this could cause serious injuries.
• After the child is in the booster, pull the lap and shoulder
belt across him/her and buckle it.
• Check that the shoulder belt lies across the middle of the
shoulder and that the lap belt is low on the hips, just
touching the thighs.
The lap belt is
stretched low and
snug across the
child’s hips.
IMPORTANT

Always secure the booster seat with the vehicle seat belt
when not occupied. An unsecured booster seat can fly into
and injure other occupants in the event of a crash.

aThe shoulder belt MUST be routed properly (p. 14).
aMake sure the shoulder and lap belts are threaded
under the red lap belt guide.
4. Check your work.
The shoulder belt MUST
cross midway between
child’s shoulder and neck.
The lap belt is stretched
low and snug across the
child’s hips.
Make sure the lap belt is stretched low and snug
across the child’s hips, within the belt guides, and
fastened into the buckle. The shoulder belt must cross
the child midway between his/her shoulder and neck.
WARNING
• The shoulder belt MUST NOT cross the child’s neck or fall
off the child’s shoulder. If you cannot adjust the shoulder
belt to properly lay midway between the child’s shoulder
and neck AND at or above the shoulder, try another
seating location or do not use the booster seat.

Shoulder belt routing while in booster
mode
While the seat is used in booster
mode the shoulder belt must be
routed over the child’s shoulder.
General Information
Installing the Cup Holders
The belt must pass under the
head rest, between the head rest
and the seat as long as the child’s
shoulders are at or below the
opening betweeen the head rest
and shell.
Screw
If the child’s shoulders
are high enough that
routing the shoulder
belt under the head
rest causes the belt to
be pulled down the
back side of the child’s
shoulder (before passing
through the head rest),
the belt should not be
routed between the seat
and the headrest.
Place each cup holder
onto the seat, then
turn the seat over
and secure each cup
holder with a screw, as shown. Make sure each cup
holder is attached securely in place.
Note: Do not overtighten the screw or use a power tool
to install.
Removing Seat Pad
Disconnect six J-clips
and two retaining
strips. Remove the
seat pad.
If the shoulder height causes the
belt to route behind the back
and the top of the ears are still
at or below the top of the head
rest, the shoulder belt should be
routed on top of the head rest.
