this child restraint around your child. If
straps are not snugly adjusted, child may
be ejected from seat in the event of an
accident.
A snug strap should not allow any slack.
It lies in a relatively straight line without

PIPA instructions
Vehicle Compatibility
You MUST read and understand ALL child restraint
related instructions and warnings in your vehicle
owner’s manual to correctly and safely use this
child restraint in your vehicle.
This child restraint can ONLY be installed on
vehicle seats that face forward. DO NOT install in
seats that face to the sides or rear of the vehicle.
NEVER install this child restraint rear facing in a
vehicle seating position with a frontal air bag unless
it is turned off. Airbags inflate with great force and
can cause severe injury to a child’s neck and spine.
If your vehicle is equipped with passenger side air
bags, check your vehicle owner’s manual for child
restraint installation instructions.
According to accident statistics, children are
safer when properly restrained in the rear seating
positions than in the front seating positions.
Refer to your vehicle owner’s manual to determine
if the belts in your vehicle lock by switching the
seat belt’s retractor OR if they have a locking latch
plate that locks the vehicle’s seat belt so they will
hold the child restraint tightly without loosening.
