I have read and discussed these important safety
instructions with my child.
•
Remove any
twists in the
seat belt when
you CHECK.
• Position the
shoulder-height
adjuster at or just
above the shoulder.
The belt should not
cross the face or
neck.
UNBUCKLING
1.
2.
Push the red button on the buckle and
remove the latch plate from the buckle.
Allow the shoulder belt to retract into
the upper seatback.
3. As a courtesy to the next passenger, move the shoulder-height adjuster up to its highest position.
IMPROPER LAP-SHOULDER BELT USE
NEVER place the shoulder
belt behind your back and
wear only the lap belt.
NEVER place the shoulder
belt under your arm.
NEVER wear the shoulder belt
or lap belt loosely.
NEVER allow the webbing to
be twisted. It should lay flat
against your body.
NEVER insert the latch plate
of your shoulder belt into the
buckle for the seat beside
you. Be sure to use your own
buckle.
NEVER wear your backpack
when you are seated in the
bus. Place it on the floor in
front of your feet.
NEVER sit on the front or side
edge of your seat.
