General Information
More children are killed every year as passengers in
car crashes than by any other type of injury.
To reduce the risk of SERIOUS INJURY or DEATH, read
this owner’s manual and your vehicle owner’s manual
before installing and using this child restraint. Using a
child restraint makes a big difference. By properly using
this child restraint and following these instructions (and
the instructions that accompany your vehicle), you will
greatly reduce the risk of serious injury or death to your
child from a crash. Do not be misled by the commonly
used term “safety seat”; no restraint system can prevent
all injuries in all crashes. Many properly restrained
adults and children are injured in motor vehicle crashes,
including relatively minor crashes. A properly used
child restraint is the best way to minimize injuries to
your child and to increase the chances for your child’s
survival.

Air Bag Warnings
WARNING
General Warnings
Rear-facing and Forward-facing Use
Rear-facing and Forward-facing Use
• DO NOT use this child restraint in the front seat of a
vehicle equipped with an air bag, unless the air bag
has been deactivated. Interaction between a rearfacing restraint and air bags may cause serious injury
or death. Air bags may cause serious injury or death to
children 12 and under. If your vehicle has an air bag,
refer to your vehicle owner’s manual for child restraint
installation.
• If the rear seat of your vehicle is equipped with side
air bags, refer to the following information for proper
usage.
Vehicles built prior to the 2002 model year:
DO NOT use this restraint in a vehicle seating position
equipped with a side air bag unless authorized by the
vehicle manufacturer.
Model year 2002 and newer vehicles:
Refer to your vehicle owner’s manual before placing this
restraint in a seating position equipped with a side air bag.
DO NOT place any objects between the restraint and
the side air bag, as an expanding air bag may cause
the items to strike the child.
• Failure to follow installation instructions can result in
the child striking the vehicle’s interior during a sudden
stop or crash. Serious injury or death may result.
These instructions and the instructions in your vehicle
owner’s manual must be followed carefully. If there
is a conflict between the two, the vehicle owner’s
manual regarding child restraint installation must
be followed.
• NEVER leave child unattended.
• Children have STRANGLED in loose or partially
buckled harness straps. Fully restrain the child.
Important Information
WARNING
WARNING
Children have STRANGLED
in loose or partially buckled
harness straps. Fully restrain
the child.
• DO NOT use child restraint if it is damaged, broken,
or missing parts.
• DO NOT use this restraint if it has been involved in a
crash. It must be replaced.
• DO NOT remove back cover.
Location Warnings
Rear-facing and Forward-facing Use
NO coloque el asiento infantil orientado
hacia atrás en el asiento delantero con
bolsa de aire.
Puede causar MUERTE o LESIONES
GRAVES. El asiento trasero es el lugar más
seguro para los niños de 12 años de edad y
2
• ALWAYS read and follow exactly the instructions that
accompany your vehicle and child restraint.
• According to statistics, children are safer when properly
restrained in a rear seating position than in the front
seating position. Generally, the center rear position is
safest and should be used if available.
• Some child restraints do not fit all vehicles or all seating
locations. There are many thousands of combinations of
vehicle makes, models, child restraint configurations,
vehicle seat belt designs, and seat cushion shapes. The
easiest way to determine whether your child restraint is
suitable for a particular seating position is to check for
a tight installation.

WARNING
Location Warnings – continued
Rear-facing Position Warnings – continued
Rear-facing and Forward-facing Use
If the child restraint cannot be properly installed, DO
NOT use the child restraint. Consult the vehicle owner’s
manual, try a different seating location, or call Evenflo.
• ONLY use this child restraint on forward-facing
vehicle seats. DO NOT use this restraint with vehicle
seats that face the rear or side.
• ONLY use this child restraint on vehicle seats with
backs that lock into place.
• The headrest on the vehicle seat that the child faces
when sitting in the rear-facing mode should be placed
in the lowest position. The vehicle seat back that the
child faces must be fully padded and free of any hard
objects.
Premature Infants
Rear-facing and Forward-facing Use
• DO NOT use this or any child restraint with a
premature infant until after consulting your doctor.
Also, some infants may have difficulty breathing when
in a seated or semi-reclined position. Using additional
padding or pillows behind the infant’s head or failing
to properly recline the child restraint may increase the
child’s risk of serious injury or death.
Rear-facing Position Warnings
• DO NOT use this child restraint rear-facing in a vehicle
equipped with seat belts that only lock during a
sudden stop or crash (emergency locking retractor –
ELR). You must use a seating location with a locking
seat belt. Check your vehicle owner’s manual to see if
you have seat belts with ELRs.
• When using this restraint rear-facing, DO NOT loosen the
vehicle seat belt to provide more leg room, as this will
prevent the child restraint from protecting the child.
• Fold-down armrests could pose a hazard to a rearfacing child in certain types of collisions. Consult your
vehicle owner’s manual before installing any rearfacing child restraint in front of a fold-down armrest.
• NEVER turn a child restraint forward-facing with an
infant who weighs less than 10 kg (22 lbs) or is less than
one year of age. Crash forces may cause serious injury or
death.
• NEVER use Recline Position #2 or Recline Position #3
when using this child restraint rear-facing. Use ONLY
Recline Position #1.
• DO NOT use the tether strap when the child restraint
is in the rear-facing position.
4
Forward-facing Position Warnings
• When securing a child who weighs more than 18 kg
(40 lbs), NEVER place the child restraint in Recline
Position #2. Use ONLY Recline Position #3.
• If the child weighs more than 29.4 kg (65 lbs) OR
their shoulders are above the highest harness level,
you cannot use this child restraint. You MUST use a
booster seat.
• DO NOT use the lower anchors of the child restraint
anchorage system (LATCH system) to attach this child
restraint when restraining a child weighing more than
22.6 kg (50 lbs) with the internal harnesses of the
child restraint.
• Adjust, or remove, the vehicle headrest, in the seat
where the child restraint is to be installed, so that
the back of the child restraint rests against the vehicle
seat back.
• The headrest on the vehicle seat in front of the child
should be put in its lowest position. The vehicle seat
back that the child faces must be fully padded and
free of any hard objects.
Important Information
WARNING
Seat Belt Warnings
Rear-facing and Forward-facing Use
• DO NOT use this child restraint if it moves more than
25 mm (1 inch) side to side or front to back at either
the rear-facing or forward-facing belt path on the
child restraint. Serious injury or death may result from
poor installation. If you cannot tightly secure the child
restraint, try again or move it to another location.
• DO NOT use this child restraint in a seating position
with door-mounted seat belts.
5
Seat Belt Warnings – continued
Rear-facing and Forward-facing Use
• DO NOT use this child restraint in a vehicle with seat
belts that automatically move along the vehicle frame
when the door is opened. These seat belts will not
hold a child restraint properly.
• If the vehicle seat belts are not routed and fastened
correctly, the child restraint may not protect the child
in a crash.
• DO NOT allow the vehicle seat belt release button to
touch the child restraint. Accidental contact may cause
the seat belt to release. If necessary, turn the seat belt
release button away from the child restraint or move
the child restraint to a different location.
• Failure to adjust the harness or vehicle seat belts
snugly around the child may result in the child striking
the vehicle’s interior during a sudden stop or crash.
Serious injury or death may occur.
LATCH Warnings
• The LATCH system is intended to be used ONLY as
described in these instructions. Serious injury or death
may result from misuse. LATCH (Lower Anchors and
Tethers for CHildren) is a system for attaching the
child restraint to your vehicle seat. It can be used in
place of the seat belts in vehicles with vehicle lower
anchor bars. Refer to your vehicle owner’s manual for
the locations of the vehicle lower anchor bars.
Note: Your vehicle owner’s manual may refer to this
system as “Universal Anchorage System,” “Lower
Universal Anchorage System,”or ”ISOFIX.”
• In addition to these instructions, read and follow your
vehicle owner’s manual regarding installation of the
child restraint and LATCH. If there is a discrepancy,
follow your vehicle owner’s manual.
• ONLY use for securing child restraint to vehicle lower
anchor bars.
• NEVER attach two lower anchor connectors to one
vehicle lower anchor bar.
• NEVER use the vehicle seat belts when using the lower
anchor connector assembly. Using both together can
cause slack in a sudden stop or crash.
6
WARNING
• When not in use, the lower anchor connectors should
be securely attached to the D-rings on the child
restraint’s seat pad. Keep out of reach of children.
• ALWAYS be sure that the lower anchor connectors are
attached to the vehicle lower anchor bars by pulling
hard on the lower anchor connectors. If they are not
attached, the lower anchor connector assembly will
not secure your child restraint. Serious injury or death
may result.
• DO NOT use this child restraint if it moves more than
25 mm (1 inch) side-to-side or front to back at either
the rear-facing or forward-facing belt path on the
child restraint. Serious injury or death may result from
poor installation. If you cannot tightly secure the child
restraint, try again or move it to another location.
Important Information
WARNING
Tether Strap Warnings
Forward-facing Use Only
• To avoid a strangulation hazard, you MUST tightly roll
or fold excess or unused tether strap and secure with
a rubber band. Attach the tether hook to the storage
clip when not in use (p. 13). This will keep an unused
tether from hitting someone during a crash.
Additional Warnings
Rear-facing and Forward-facing Use
• In hot or sunny weather, ALWAYS check the areas of
the child restraint that may contact your child (e.g.,
buckle, buckle tongues, etc.) for hot areas before
placing him/her into the child restraint. The child
could be burned. Cover the child restraint with a light
colored blanket when you leave the vehicle.
• This child restraint must be securely fastened to the
vehicle, even when unoccupied, using the vehicle
seat belts or lower anchor connectors. An unsecured
child restraint may injure someone if a crash occurs.
• DO NOT use the cup holder to store cans or hard
cups. Only for use with soft cups (such as styrofoam
or paper).
• DO NOT place any cups that contain hot liquids in the
cup holder.
7
Additional Warnings – continued
Rear-facing and Forward-facing Use
• DO NOT attach additional padding, toys, or other
devices not made by Evenflo or described in these
instructions to the child restraint. Items not tested with
the child restraint could injure the child. Additional
pads or pillows may interfere with the function of the
harness system, or cause breathing problems if the
child’s head falls forward, increasing the risk of serious
injury or death.
• Failure to follow installation instructions could result
in serious injury or death. These instructions and the
instructions in your vehicle owner’s manual must be
followed carefully. If there is a conflict between the
two, the vehicle owner’s manual regarding child
restraint installation must be followed.
• In cold weather, DO NOT dress the child in bulky
clothing like snowsuits if the child is riding in a child
restraint. Bulky coats/snowsuits make it difficult to
properly tighten the harness on the child, which may
allow the child to be ejected from the restraint during
a crash. If necessary, place a blanket over the
harnessed child without interfering with the child
restraint harness system.
8
Safe Practices
• Everyone rides buckled up or the vehicle does
not go. Make no exceptions for adults or children.
If someone unbuckles, stop the vehicle. Being firm
and consistent from the start will mean fewer
discipline problems as children get older.
An unrestrained person can be thrown into and injure
other passengers.
• Many safety advocates and healthcare
professionals recommend that children ride
rear facing for as long as possible. See limitations
recommended on rear-facing use on the inside
front cover.
• NEVER try to tend to a crying baby’s needs while
driving. NEVER take a baby out of a child restraint for
comforting while the vehicle is moving.
• DO NOT allow a child in a vehicle to have objects
such as lollipops or ice cream on a stick. The object
can injure the child if the vehicle swerves or hits a
bump.
• DO NOT feed an infant who is riding in a child
restraint.
• Put sharp or heavy items in the trunk. Anything loose
can be deadly in a crash.

Securing Your Child Restraint in Aircraft
The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) recommends
that you secure your child for air travel in an appropriate
child restraint based on your child’s weight and size.
Turbulence can happen with little or no warning. When
turbulence occurs, the safest place for your child is
in a properly installed child restraint, not in an
adult’s lap or on the aircraft seat with its seat
belt. Keeping your child in a child restraint during the
flight will help ensure your family arrives safely at your
destination.
The FAA recommends that a child weighing:
• more than 18 kg (40 lbs) use an aircraft seat belt;
• less than 9 kg (20 lbs) use a rear-facing child restraint;
and
• from 9 to 18 kg (20 to 40 lbs) use a forward-facing
child restraint.
Please note that these FAA recommendations
may vary from those applicable to the use of
your child restraint in a motor vehicle.
IMPORTANT
IMPORTANT:
• The head pillow should lie flat against the seat back,
as shown. Be sure to cut off and discard the plastic
attachment between the head support and the seat pad.
Small parts may be a choking hazard.
• Support the child’s head. Infants may have difficulty
breathing when in a sitting position. Using additional
padding or pillows behind the infant’s head or failing
to properly recline the child restraint could increase the
child’s risk of serious injury or death.
