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 AIRBAGS.
This child seat must only be installed in a forward facing position in passenger
seats.
Do not use on side facing or rear facing seats.
Never use this child seat without fastening the childs’ harness correctly, and never
attempt to use it without fastening it into the car as described in these instructions.
When using the child seat, it is most important that the car seat belt is correctly
routed. Ensure the belt straps are not kinked or 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.
Do not add to or modify the seat in any way.
It is recommended that this car seat should be changed 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.
Do not leave your child unattended in the seat at any time.
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, so your child must be taught
never to play with the buckle.
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.
The safest seating position for a child car seat is on the rear seat of a vehicle.

lap and diagonal seat belt, approved to UN/ECE Regulation No.16 or other equivalent

front seat
Anyone, especially children, travelling in the front seat of a car must be properly restrained. Children under three years must use a suitable approved restraint designed
for their weight.

All adults and children must use seat belts or child restraints where they are fitted in the
rear of a car and are available for use.
If the appropriate restraint is not available, children from 3 years must wear an adult
seat belt if available.

important notes
This user guide should be stored behind the cover,
above the shoulder straps.
When the child seat is not in use, it is recommended
that it is fastened into the car with a seat belt to avoid
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.
If you travel with passengers using both the front
and rear seats, the lighter occupants should be in
the rear seats and the heavier occupants in the front
of the vehicle. When a child is in the front seat, the
lighter passenger should be behind the child.
Do not allow the child seat to come into contact with
corrosive substances e.g. battery acid.

Push the harness ends into the hole in the buckle
at the top of the crotch strap. You will hear and feel

both straps, while at the same time, pressing the
tab through the hole in the seat cover.

Re-assemble the harness by threading the keeper
of the shoulder restraint back through the desired
slots in the cover and seat shell.
IMPORTANT : make sure you thread the keeper
back into the slot below. Use the other harness

upright position before feeding the keeper through the slot. At the rear of the seat,
then push the keeper down through the gap between base and seat. Then fully recline

fitting your child seat into your car
Make sure that the lap section passes through the
two guides located below the red lock-off clips.

Then route the diagonal section of the car seat
belt through the open lock-off clip and diagonally
across the seat back.

and tighten both sections of the seat belt by pulling the belt in the direction shown.
Close the lock-off across the diagonal belt and
lock the clip using the red lever, making sure you

is no slack.
Check that there are no kinks or twists in the vehicle seat belt.

reclining your child seat
Your child car seat can be reclined in a choice
of five positions to make it comfortable for your
child.
To do this, lift and then pull the lever under the
front of the seat. This releases the lock, enabling
the seat shell to recline or move back to the desired position.
Release the lever to lock the child seat in the chosen position.

final checklist
However safe a child seat is, however well built it is, your childs’ 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 and diagonal
belt. See section 9, fitting your child seat into your car.
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: mis-using your child seat will reduce the protection and safety you offer
your child.
IF YOU ARE UNSURE ABOUT THE FIT OF YOUR CHILD SEAT, PLEASE VISIT YOUR LOCAL
MOTHERCARE STORE FOR ADVICE.
