The Infant Sling must be properly installed to professional
standards. Follow the instructions on correct attachment
in the section “Installing the Infant Sling to the Croozer Kid

death.

Read and observe this manual
This manual contains information that is extremely important for the safe transport of your infant. Therefore,
it is essential that you read the entire manual carefully
and follow the instructions closely. If you should experience difficulties understanding any of the information or
instructions, please contact your Croozer dealer. Keep this
manual handy at all times for future reference. If you loan
or sell your Infant Sling, pass on this manual to the new
user. It is also vitally important that you read and observe
the instructions provided in the manual of the child trailer.
BabysitzKidPlus15-ENG-11-14
Never leave your child in the Infant Sling unattended, not
even briefly! In your absence, hazardous, unforeseen situations could arise, including accidents with serious injury
or death. It is the adult’s responsibility to ensure that the
ventilation and temperature in the trailer is comfortable for
the passengers at all times. Check on your infant frequently to make sure he or she is safe and comfortable in the
Infant Sling.
Suitable accessories
Use only accessories that have been recommended and
approved by Zwei plus zwei GmbH. These are the only accessories that can be used safely with the Infant Sling and
the Croozer Kid Plus. When in doubt, consult a Croozer
dealer. Zwei plus zwei GmbH cannot be held responsible
for any damage resulting from the use of non-approved
accessories.
Folding the Croozer Kid Plus
For transport, the Croozer Kid Plus can be folded to a
compact size with the Infant Sling installed. After unfolding,
check all attachment sites of the Infant Sling and all locking mechanisms of the Croozer Kid Plus. An improperly
installed Infant Sling could become loose or fall off while
riding, resulting in accidents with serious injury or death.
Never attempt to fold the Croozer Kid Plus with an infant in
the Infant Sling. As a result, the infant could suffer serious
injuries.

The Infant Sling must be properly installed to professional standards! An improperly installed Infant Sling
could cause accidents with serious injury or death. If you
should experience difficulties understanding or performing the installation, please contact your Croozer dealer.
Before using the Infant Sling to transport an infant between
one and ten months of age in the Croozer Kid Plus, the
Infant Sling must be properly installed. This accessory is
specially designed for use with the 2015 models of the
Croozer Kid Plus for 1 and Croozer Kid Plus for 2. With the
lap-belt adapters (included), the Infant Sling can also be
used with 2014 models.The Infant Sling has seven attachment points. It is mounted in four steps.
•Step A: Preparing the seat of the Croozer Kid Plus for
the attachment of the Infant Sling
•Step B: Attaching the Infant Sling to the seat of the
Croozer Kid Plus
•Step C: Attaching the Infant Sling to the top of the
seatback
•Step D: Attaching the Infant Sling to the front of the
frame
4
On the top of its frame, the Croozer Kid Plus for 1 has two
attachment points for the installation of an Infant Sling. The
Croozer Kid Plus for 2 has four attachment points on the
top of its frame so that an individual Infant Sling can be
mounted to the right or left side. It is also possible to install
two Infant Slings side by side in the Croozer Kid Plus for 2,
e.g. for transporting twins.
The infant is buckled into the Infant Sling using an integrated crotch strap with adjustable chest pad, together
with the shoulder straps and parts of the lap belts (2015
model) from the seat of the Croozer Kid Plus. The lap-belt
adapters (included) must be used with 2014 models of the
Croozer Kid Plus because the lap belts of these models
cannot be detached from the other harnesses. The removable components of the Croozer Kid Plus safety-harness
system – the head pad, padding of the shoulder straps
and lap belts – must be removed and stored for later use.
The permanently attached parts of the lap belts and crotch
strap are not required and remain in the trailer.

Adjusting the safety harness
1. Make sure that the harnesses are unbuckled; then
place the infant in the Infant Sling.
2. Fasten the harness as described on page 10.
3. If you notice that the shoulder harnesses are too far
above or below the top of the infant’s shoulders, then
reinsert the straps through the appropriate slots in the
Infant Sling. (See Step C, page 7).
4. Adjust the lengths of the shoulder straps using the
Ladderloc adjusters (2).
5. Shorten the lap belts by pulling on the ends (5) of the
lap belts. Lengthen them by pushing on the side of the
clip (6) and pulling on the respective lap belt (7).

Tip:

The harness should be snug, with just barely
enough room for your open, flat hand between the
straps and the child.
The shoulder straps must fit comfortably yet snugly over
the infant’s shoulders to ensure that the infant is held
securely in the Infant Sling. If the straps are too loose, the
safety harness may not be able to hold the infant securely, and in the event of an accident the infant could slip
out, resulting in serious injury or death. Straps that are
too tight can cause discomfort to the infant’s shoulders.
Failure to adjust the straps of the safety harness properly
or to fasten the buckles correctly could result in accidents
with serious injury or death.

Tips: Riding with Your Infant
Tips: Riding with Your Infant
Warranty Conditions
Be cautious, patient and attentive when riding with your
infant. The first few trips should be short and easy, to give
your infant time to get used to riding in the Infant Sling.
The statutory warranty in the country or state of purchase
has unlimited application to the above-mentioned products.
This warranty only applies to defects inherent to the material supplied and does not cover damage due to improper
use, use of force or normal wear and tear. The period of
statutory warranty depends on the law of the country in
question.
Dress passengers appropriately and check frequently
to make sure they are comfortable in the trailer, with
adequate ventilation. Under the rain cover, the passenger compartment can become warm more quickly than
otherwise, especially in direct sunlight. However, in colder Servicing Information

atures dress children in warm clothing or use a blanket.
For such cases, be sure to keep your original sales receipt.
You can also use the Baby Winter Bunting Bag that is
available as a Croozer accessory.
Keep your passengers’ needs and well-being in mind:
always take along small toys so that your infant does not
get bored. And when planning longer trips, keep in mind
that your infant will require frequent breaks. Be attentive to
your child at all times, especially when riding over bumpy
surfaces. In these situations, ride slowly and cautiously.
After the infant is able to sit upright unassisted and no
longer fits in the Infant Sling, you can use the Croozer
Baby Supporter, which is available as an accessory from
Croozer dealers.
Cleaning, Storage and Disposal
The Infant Sling is easy to clean and maintain. No special
care or maintenance is required. A cloth or sponge can be
used with a soap solution or a mild household detergent
to remove light soiling. For cases of heavy soiling, remove
the Infant Sling and wash it by hand in lukewarm water.
Never wash the Infant Sling in a washing machine, and
never use solvents or mineral spirits on the Infant Sling.
Store the Infant Sling in a dry and well-ventilated area in
order to prevent mildew and mould growth. If you will not
be using your Infant Sling for an extended period of time,
then store it dry and enclosed in packaging.
The Infant Sling is extremely durable. However, it will eventually reach the end of its service life. If the Infant Sling has
been involved in an accident, its further use is prohibited.
Be sure to dispose of the Infant Sling properly.
