Safety Warnings
PLEASE READ THOROUGHLY BEFORE COMMENCING INSTALLATION, AND
FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS CLOSELY AS AN INCORRECT INSTALLATION COULD
BE HIGHLY DANGEROUS.
• Do not use this child seat in passenger seats equipped with airbags.
• This child seat must only be installed in the rearward facing position. 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 specified in these instructions.
• It is most important that the seat belt is correctly routed with the lap portion of the belt
through the side guides and the diagonal belt going through the guides on the back of the
child seat. Ensure the belt straps are not 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.
2
• Do not add to or modify the seat in any way. This could render the seat unsafe.
• It is recommended that this car seat should be replaced 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.
• Never leave your child unattended in the seat.
• The carrying handle must be in the correct position when used in the car.
• 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 and so your child must be taught
never to play with the buckle. The buckle should always be easily accessible.
3
• 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.

• This child seat is for children from birth to 13kg / 29lbs (12-15 months approx) using a
3-point lap and diagonal seat belt in the rearward facing position only.
• Keep this user guide in a safe place where it can easily be found. A holder is provided on
the inside of the padded cover at the head of the child seat.
• When not in use, the child seat should be fastened into the car with a seat belt to avoid it
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.
• Never remove the polystyrene impact absorbent pads between the seat shell and the
cover.
• If you travel with passengers using both front and rear seats, the lighter occupants should
be in the back and heavier occupants in the front of the vehicle.

• Do not allow the seat to contact corrosive substances e.g. battery acid, or solvents.

Before tightening the harness, ensure the
shoulder straps sit comfortably on the
child’s shoulders, and that the straps are
not twisted.
The shoulder pads should be positioned so
they sit on top of your child’s shoulders, not
just on the chest.
To tighten the harness, pull on the ‘one-pull’
adjuster strap as shown.
It is recommended that there is just enough
room to insert two fingers between the
shoulder straps and the child’s chest.
To loosen the harness press on the button
at the top of the ‘one-pull’ adjuster strap and
pull gently on the harness.

The Harness (Height selection)

Your child seat comes with the shoulder straps
through the lowest shoulder slots in the seat
back.
As your child grows you will need to move the
straps to the next slots. The correct slots are
those at, or just below your child’s shoulders.
If the slots are too far from the shoulders there
will be too much slack.
Diagram 3 shows a correct shoulder strap
position.
Diagrams 4 and 5 show incorrect positions.

Positioning the head hugger
A head hugger (not supplied) is used to
give added support to your child’s head.
It has a pair of slots that the shoulder
straps of the car seat fit through.
The head hugger should fit your child’s
head snugly.

Using the Apron
The Apron is designed to keep your child
warm when they are seated in the car seat
and is for use when the Car Seat is
attached to a pushchair or being used as a
rocker.
The apron must not be used when the Car
Seat is fitted into a car as it obscures the
buckle release.

Using the seat level indicator

SEAT LEVEL
INDICATOR
Your car seat is fitted with a seat level
indicator. This is designed to help you
ensure that the seat is positioned at the
correct angle.
The arrow should point directly at the top of
the star as shown below.
If it does not then your car seat is not
correctly fitted and is not providing the best
protection for your child.
CAUTION: Always check the level indicator
before and after fitting the seat belts.

Fitting the child seat with standard seat belts
However safe a child seat is, however well
built it is, your child’s safety depends on
you.
Read this section thoroughly before fitting
your child seat in your car.
REMEMBER: Misusing your child seat will
reduce the protection and safety you offer
your child.
• Ensure the harness is adjusted to suit
your child. A fitting for winter clothes will
be too loose for a child wearing summer
clothes.
• Install the child seat carefully using the
3- point lap and diagonal belt, as
described in this section.
• Check that your child seat is secure
before each journey.

Step 1
Pull the seat belt across the top of the seat.
DO NOT fasten the seat belt into the buckle
at this stage.
Note: When fitting in a vehicle front seat it
may be necessary to slide the vehicle seat
to its furthest back position to give sufficient
webbing to secure the child seat.

Checking the security of the seat
When fitted, the security of the child seat
can be tested by pressing firmly into the
backrest as shown.
The seat should feel very firm and move
only slightly.
If the seat does not feel secure, go back to
section 11 and follow the fitting instructions
closely.
Only once the seat is secure is it ready for
use.

Care of your child seat
• To clean the harness and plastics, sponge
with warm water and allow to dry.
• The cover and accessories are removable
for cleaning (follow the wash care
instructions on the label on the cover).
• The canopy can be removed by simply
pulling the frame out of the fixings.
• If food or drink finds it’s way inside the
buckle, remove it from the seat and rinse
with mild hand soap and warm water.
When dry, check that it functions properly,
then refit carefully.
27
• Do not use solvents, chemical cleaners or
lubricants on any part of the seat and
never attempt to bleach or dye the
webbing.
• Allow all parts to dry naturally.
