WARNINGS

IMPORTANT: RETAIN FOR FUTURE REFERENCE

THESE INSTRUCTIONS DETAIL THE SAFE USE, FITMENT AND MAINTENANCE

OF THE SEAT.

PLEASE READ THESE INSTRUCTIONS CAREFULLY AND ENSURE THAT THEY

ARE FOLLOWED AT ALL TIMES.

NO SAFETY SEAT CAN GUARANTEE PROTECTION FROM INJURY HOWEVER,

PROPER USE OF THIS SEAT REDUCES THE RISK OF SERIOUS INJURY OR

DEATH TO YOUR CHILD.

THIS RESTRAINT MUST BE ATTACHED TO A CHILD RESTRAINT UPPER

ANCHORAGE POINT IN THE CAR. REFER TO CAR OWNER’S HANDBOOK FOR

LOCATION OF UPPER ANCHORAGE POINTS. REFER TO A CHILD RESTRAINT

FITTING STATION IF NO UPPER ANCHORAGE POINTS ARE IN THE MOTOR

CAR.

Follow the manufacturer’s instructions at all times.

To be used in a forward-facing position with built-in harness by a child whose shoulders are above the lower shoulder height marker (approximately 6 months of age) until their shoulders reach the middle shoulder height marker (approximately 4 years of age).

Then to be used with a lap-sash seatbelt until the child’s shoulders reach the upper shoulder height marker (approximately 6 to 8 years of age).

Continue to use this child restraint until the child reaches this limit. Children are safest in a booster seat until their shoulders reach the upper shoulder height marker of the booster seat.

Do not use this child restraint until child’s shoulders are above the lower shoulder height marker.

THIS RESTRAINT MUST BE USED IN CARS WITH FORWARD-FACING SEATS

WITH A LAP-SASH SEATBELT. THIS BOOSTER SEAT IS NOT SUITABLE FOR

USE WITH A CHILD HARNESS.

If the knees do not bend in front of the vehicle seat cushion continue to use a booster seat.

Warnings

WARNINGS

Just using a seatbelt is not recommended for children that have outgrown this seat. Use a larger booster seat.

Use the restraint exactly as shown in the instructions.

Supervision of children is needed because they may be able to undo the buckles.

DO NOT LEAVE CHILDREN UNATTENDED IN THE CAR.

Do not alter or modify this restraint.

Repairs must only be done by the manufacturers or agent.

Do not allow the restraint to come into contact with polishes, oils, bleach and other chemicals.

Destroy the restraint if it has been in a severe crash, even if no damage is visible.

DO NOT USE THIS RESTRAINT WITHOUT THE COVER.

DO NOT USE WITH JUST A LAP BELT. You must use with a lap-sash seatbelt.

The lap part of the seatbelt must be firmly across the thighs and the sash belt fitted diagonally across the chest and on the shoulder.

Fit the restraint firmly to the car seat.

Fit the harness firmly to the child.

A loose restraint or harness is dangerous.

Always secure the loose end of the top tether strap. Do not use the child restraint where this strap may fall into a split in the seat back or off the side of the seat.

ALWAYS ATTACH HOOK AND REMOVE SLACK.

Seatbelt extenders are not recommended to be used if the seatbelt is not long enough to secure the child restraint. If seatbelts are too short then advice should be sought from a child restraint fitter and their recommendation be considered before using a seatbelt extender.

This child restraint is not approved for use with any connectors that connect to the car’s ISOFIX low anchorages.

The use of child restraints in the front seat may be restricted for children of specific ages by local legislation. Please check with your local legislation regarding any restriction for child restraint.

Care and attention should always be given to ventilation and shading of the occupant.

Use of aftermarket accessories (i.e. items not provided in the box with the child restraint), can reduce the safety provided by child restraint and may cause injury or death. For approved aftermarket accessories please refer to page 13.

Ensure the belt webbing is not twisted.

TO BE USED WITH A LAP-SASH SEATBELT IN THE FRONT/BACK OF MOST

CARS WITH FORWARD FACING SEATS.

Next seat for your child

When your child has outgrown the seat, you can either use:

A booster seat suitable for children up to 4-10 years of age until their shoulders reach the upper height marker of the booster seat.

NOTE: This illustration is representative only.

Or, follow the steps below to see if your child is ready to use a vehicle seat belt.

10

If your child is transitioning out of a booster, try this simple three point test. You may find that your child is not yet ready to use an adult seatbelt without the booster.

3 POINT TEST

1.

Does the sash part of the seatbelt sit on the middle of the shoulder and not touch the neck or face?

2.

3.

Does the lap part of the seatbelt sit low down on the hips and not on the abdomen?

When you sit the child on the seat with their bottom all the way back, are their thighs long enough for their knees to bend allowing the legs to hang over the front of the seat?

If you answered “no” to any of these questions, your child needs to be in a booster seat to make both the sash and the lap part of the seatbelt fit right to ensure maximum crash protection.
