Improper installation can lead to failure of an infant or
• Improper installation can lead to failure of
an infant or child restraint. It could come
loose in a collision. The child could be
badly injured or killed. Follow the manufacturer’s directions exactly when installing an
infant or child restraint.
• A rearward-facing child restraint should
only be used in a rear seat. A rearwardfacing child restraint in the front seat may
be struck by a deploying passenger air bag
which may cause severe or fatal injury to
the infant.
Here are some tips on getting the most out
of your child restraint:
• Before buying any restraint system, make
sure that it has a label certifying that it meets
all applicable Safety Standards. Chrysler
Group LLC also recommends that you make
sure that you can install the child restraint in
the vehicle where you will use it, before you
buy it.
• The restraint must be appropriate for your
child’s weight and height. Check the label on
the restraint for weight and height limits.
• Carefully follow the instructions that come
with the restraint. If you install the restraint
improperly, it may not work when you need it.
• Passenger seat belts are equipped with an
Automatic Locking Retractor (ALR) designed to keep the lap portion tight around
the child restraint so that it is not necessary
to use a locking clip. In seating positions that
are equipped with an ALR retractor, it will
make a ratcheting noise after all the webbing
is extracted and allowed to return back. For
additional information, refer to “Automatic
Locking Mode”.
• In the rear seat, you may have trouble tightening the lap/shoulder belt on the child restraint because the buckle or latch plate is
too close to the belt path opening on the
restraint. Disconnect the latch plate from the
buckle and twist the short buckle end of the
belt several times to shorten it. Insert the
latch plate into the buckle with the release
button facing out.
• If the belt still can’t be tightened, or if pulling
and pushing on the restraint loosens the belt,
disconnect the latch plate from the buckle,
turn the buckle around, and insert the latch
plate into the buckle again. If you still can’t
make the child restraint secure, try a different
seating position.
• Buckle the child into the seat according to
the child restraint manufacturer’s directions.
When your child restraint is not in use, secure
it in the vehicle with the seat belt or remove it
from the vehicle. Do not leave it loose in the
vehicle. In a sudden stop or accident, it could
strike the occupants or seatbacks and cause
serious personal injury.
