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 FRONT AIRBAGS.
• Save this instruction manual in the storage compartment behind the seat cover for future reference.
• Make yourself familiar with these instructions and look carefully at the illustrations in the manual.
• The car safety seat offers maximum protection and is only safe when used in accordance with the
instructions.
• For the safety of your child it is of crucial importance that the car seatbelt is threaded correctly.
Follow the bright blue routing labels on the front belt hooks and ensure that the shoulder belt is
also secured behind the bright blue belt hook at the rear of the seat.
• The Car safety seat is approved in accordance with European safety standard (ECE R44/03) and is
suitable for children from birth - 13 kg (from birth to approximately 12-15 months old).
• The Car safety seat may be used on the front or rear passenger seat, but always in a rearward facing
position. DO NOT use a child safety seat where the vehicle is equipped with a front airbag. This can
be dangerous. This does not apply to so-called side airbags. When using the Car safety seat on a
collapsible rear seat, always check to make sure the rear seat is locked securely before installing the
car seat.
• The Car safety seat must only be used on a forward facing seat fitted with an automatic 3-point seat
belt, which is approved according to ECE R16 or an equivalent standard.
• Before purchasing the seat we recommend you to check if the car safety seat is compatible for use
in your car.
• A baby can be very active. Do not be caught unawares by unexpected movements, and ALWAYS
secure your baby with the harness belt, also when using the car safety seat out of the car. Do not
allow yourself to be distracted by your child while driving.
• We strongly advise you not to use a second-hand product, as you are never sure if the seat has
been involved in an accident or whether it has been otherwise damaged.
• After an accident your car safety seat should be replaced. Although it may appear undamaged, if
you were to have another accident it would not protect your child as well as it should.
• It is advisable not to use car safety seats longer than 5 years after the date of purchase. Due to the
ageing process of the plastic for instance, the quality of the product may be unnoticeably
deteriorated.
• Do not place the car safety seat on high surfaces, such as tables, worktops, beds, etc., due to the
risk of falling.
• Under no circumstances may the moving parts of the car safety seat be oiled or greased.
• Ensure that all luggage/objects, on the parcel shelf for instance, likely to cause injury in the event
of an accident are properly secured.
• Never leave your child unattended in the seat, either in or out of the car.
• When using the car safety seat on the front passenger seat, the car passenger seat must always be
placed in the rearmost position. The backrest of the car seat must be placed in an upright position.

Safety Warnings (cont)
• The seat must always be secured with a seat belt, even when not in use.
• Ensure that the seat is not damaged by wedging it between or underneath heavy luggage,
adjustable seats or slamming the car door, etc.
• No alterations may be made to the car safety seat, as this could effect part or the overall safety of
the seat.
• The car safety seat must not be used without the cover. Always use an ORIGINAL car safety seat
cover, as the cover contributes to the safety of the seat. The energy absorbing foam in the shell is
essential for the safety and must not be removed.
• Do not remove the logo and the airbag warning label.

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 - see section 9,
Installation.
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.
11
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.
