Safety
NOTICES
1. The child car seat must only be used in vehicles which are fitted with a three point
seatbelt system that has been approved by regulation ECE-16 or similar.
2. A correct fit is likely if the vehicle manufacturer has declared in the vehicle hand book
that the vehicle is capable of accepting a ‘Universal ’child restraint for this group.
3. The child car seat is a ‘Universal’ child restraint; it conforms to regulation ECE-R44/04 for
general use in vehicles. It will fit most, but not all vehicle seats.
4. This child car seat has been declared ‘Universal’ under more stringent conditions than
those applied to earlier designs, which do not carry the ‘Universal’ mark.
5. Child car seats can mark vehicle seat upholstery. The manufacturer cannot be held
responsible for damage or marking to vehicle seats.
6. The following situations could be illegal and will invalidate the warranty:
a) Any modifications or change of use of the child car seat that have not been authorised or
advised by the manufacturer.
b) Any failure to fit the child car seat in strict accordance with the instructions.
The manufacturer accepts no liability for issues arising from unauthorised modifications,
uses or fitting.
7. Please keep this manual safe for any possible queries you may have in the future.
8. You will need to keep your proof of purchase. We recommend you keep them together.
Getting started
Read carefully before attempting to fit the child car seat
WARNING: NEVER leave your child unattended – your child’s safety is your responsibility.
WARNING: The child car seat must be fitted in accordance with the manufacturer’s
instructions. Incorrect installation could be dangerous.
WARNING: This installation must only be performed by a competent adult. Don’t try to install
the seat when intoxicated or drowsy.
WARNING: Always ensure that new or occasional users [e.g. Grandparents] have read the
instructions or been taught the correct installation by someone who has read and understood
the instructions.
WARNING: Always keep this instruction manual with the child car seat, or in the vehicle in
which you are carrying the child car seat. Some models of child car seat have a pocket to
store the instructions.
Before starting
WARNING: Do not fit the child car seat on a side or rear facing vehicle seat.
WARNING: Before installing the child car seat ensure that the passenger seat you are using is
locked in the upright position.
WARNING: Do not use the child car seat in the home - it has only been designed to be used
in the car.
WARNING: Do not leave loose/unsecured objects on the back seat of your car or the parcel
shelf. They may be dangerous to your child if you are forced to brake suddenly.

Which is the safest passenger seat for the child seat?
If your centre rear passenger seat is fitted with a three point seatbelt system then you should
use it.
If your centre rear passenger seat does not have a three point seatbelt system (i.e. No
seatbelt at all, or only a lap belt)
- Then you should use the rear left passenger seat or the rear right passenger seat.
The front passenger seat can only be used if it DOES NOT have an airbag and IS fitted with a
three point seatbelt system.
EXTREME HAZARD
NEVER USE IN FRONT PASSENGER SEATS EQUIPPED WITH
AIRBAGS (SRS). THIS CAN INCLUDE REAR PASSENGER SEATS
THAT ARE EQUIPPED WITH AIRBAGS*
*Consult car manufacturer for suitability. Children’s bodies are not able to
withstand the forces exerted on them by a deploying air-bag
When using the child car seat
WARNING: Make sure that the child car seat is placed somewhere so that rigid items and
plastic parts do not become trapped in doors or movable seat units when the seat is in
everyday use.
WARNING: Always use the vehicle’s door child safety lock system, if one is available, to make
it impossible for the child to open the car doors from inside.
WARNING: Allow the child a break during long car journeys and make sure they don’t get out
of the car unaided and without supervision.
WARNING: The child car seat must be fitted securely to the passenger seat. Ensure that it is
not loose or wobbly after you have fitted it. If it is loose, re-fit it.
WARNING: The child car seat must not be used without its original cover. The original cover is
essential for the safe operation of the child car seat.
WARNING: Stop the car at regular intervals to check that the child car seat is in the correct
position and that both the car seatbelt (if used) AND the child car seat harness are still taut
and latched.
WARNING: Ensure that no part of the child car seat is trapped in a door or folding seat.
WARNING: In the event of an emergency it is important to be able to release the child quickly
(as defined by British Standards). This means that the seat buckle cannot be fully tamper
proof and you should actively discourage your child from playing with or using the buckle.
WARNING: If you travel with passengers using both the front and the rear passenger seats,
the lighter occupants should be in the rear and the heavier occupants in the front.
WARNING: If you have no option other than to put your child car seat on a rear passenger seat
next to side airbags:
- Consult with your vehicle manufacturer for side airbag details. It may not be safe.
- Make sure your child does not lean into the area immediately around the airbag.
WARNING: Do not place anything under the child car seat (e.g. A towel or cushion) as this
could affect the performance of the seat in an accident.
4
When using the child car seat (continued)
WARNING: Avoid winter clothing bundling - bulky clothing can lead to incorrect harness
tightening. In an accident, the child can slip right out of the extra padding - and thus out of the
seat. Let the car warm up or cool down prior to placing your child in there if possible. If your
child is cold, place a blanket over the top of the harness.
Seatbelt
WARNING: Never use any load bearing contact points other than those described in these
instructions or marked on the child car seat.
WARNING: Ensure that the lap section of the harness is worn low down, so that the pelvis is
firmly engaged.
WARNING: Make sure that ALL the passengers in your vehicle have their seatbelts fastened,
as unrestrained people can be very dangerous to the child in an accident.
WARNING: NEVER use a seatbelt routing scheme that differs from these instructions.
WARNING: The harness must be used at all times when your child is in the child car seat.
WARNING: If you are installing the child car seat using a seatbelt ensure there are no twists
in the seatbelt.
Sunlight/hot days
WARNING: Don’t leave your child in the child car seat while parked in direct sunlight or on a
hot day.
WARNING: Do not subject the child car seat to prolonged direct sunlight as this may be
dangerous for your child (the metal and plastic fittings could become hot) and may cause the
fabric to fade. You can reduce this problem by covering the child car seat with a sheet when
not in use.
Back of the seat/headrest
WARNING: Ensure that the child car seat is as close as possible to the backrest of the car
seat.
WARNING: REMOVE the headrest of the passenger seat being used if it obstructs the proper
installation of the child car seat. REMEMBER to refit the headrest when the child car seat has
been removed.
Second hand or damaged child car seats and seatbelts
WARNING: NEVER buy a second hand child car seat. It may have unseen damage.
WARNING: The manufacturer only guarantees this product when the original owner uses it.
WARNING: You MUST replace the child car seat and your vehicles seatbelts if they becomes
badly worn or damaged.
WARNING: You MUST replace the child car seat if it is involved in an accident – it may have
unseen damage and may not protect your child as well as they should. At the very least send
the child car seat to the manufacturers for inspection, together with the accident report.

Installing the seat - rearward facing
For use with group 0 [0-10kg]
WARNING! Do not try to fit the child seat using any part of the child seat that is not
specifically designed to hold it in place. The instructions and the fitting picture (on the
side of the child seat) specify the correct parts of the child seat to attach fitting devices
(e.g car seats and ISOFIX points). Do not attempt to use any other part of the child
seat to hold it in place, and always ensure that you use the exact fitting method that is
specified.
ATTENTION! Rear facing car seats are 300% safer than forward facing car seats.
Only consider changing the child seat to a forward facing child seat when the child
has completely outgrown the rear facing mode. Your child has outgrown the rear facing
mode when they are over 10kg or too big to fit in the seat when it is rear facing.
It will soon be a legal requirement for all children to be kept in a rear facing child seat
until they are 15months old. We strongly advise that you keep your child in a rear
facing child seat until they are at least 15months old.
