IMPORTANT. KEEP FOR FUTURE REFERENCE
introduction
IMPORTANT: Read these instructions carefully before use and keep them for future
reference. Your child’s safety may be affected if you do not follow these instructions.
1. This is a "Universal" child restraint; it is approved to ECE Regulation 44.04 for general
use in vehicles and will fit most, but not all, vehicle seats.
2. A correct fit is likely if the vehicle manufacturer has declared in the vehicle handbook
that the vehicle is capable of accepting a "Universal" child restraint for this group.
3. This child restraint has been declared "Universal" under more stringent conditions than
those applied to earlier designs which do not carry this notice.
4. If in doubt, consult either the child restraint manufacturer or the retailer.
The car safety seat must only be used in a forward facing seat fitted with 3-point static,
3-point retractor safety belts, approved to UN/ECE Regulation No. 16 or other equivalent
standards.
EXTREME HAZARD
DO NOT USE IN PASSENGER SEATS EQUIPPED WITH AIRBAGS (SRS)
The correct use and maintenance of your car seat will ensure it gives long and trouble
free use. When somebody else is using your car seat, ensure they also know how to use
it, especially the correct way to adjust it. The safety of your child is your responsibility.

PLEASE READ THOROUGHLY BEFORE COMMENCING INSTALLATION, AS AN
INCORRECT INSTALLATION COULD BE DANGEROUS.
PARENTS SHOULD NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES USE THIS CHILD
RESTRAINT ON A PASSENGER SEAT EQUIPPED WITH AN AIRBAG.
Make yourself familiar with these instructions and look carefully at the
illustrations in this user guide.
The car safety seat offers maximum protection and is only safe when used in
accordance with the instructions.
For the safety of your child it is of crucial importance that the car seatbelt is threaded
correctly. Follow the blue routing labels on the front belt hooks and ensure that the
shoulder belt is also secured behind the belt hook at the rear of the seat indicated
by the blue routing label.
The car safety seat is approved in accordance with European safety standard
(ECE R44/03) and is suitable for children from birth to 13kg (from birth to
approximately 12-15 months old).
The car safety seat may be used on the front or rear passenger seat, but always
in a rearward facing position. DO NOT use a child safety seat where the vehicle
is equipped with a front airbag. This can be dangerous. This does not apply to
so-called side airbags. When using the car safety seat on a collapsible rear
seat, always check to make sure the rear seat is locked securely before installing
the seat.
Never use the child seat without fastening the child's harness correctly, and
never attempt to use it without fastening it into the car as described in these
fitting instructions.
It is most important that the seat belt is correctly routed and the child seat
tightened down on the upholstery as firmly as possible to ensure maximum
protection - a recommended method is shown in these instructions.
Do not add to or modify this product in any way.
Never use this product if it has been in an accident, or if it has become badly
worn. Periodically inspect the harness for wear, paying particular attention to
attachment points, stitching and adjusting devices.
Do not leave a child in the seat unattended at any time.
We strongly advise you do not use a second-hand product, as you are never
sure if the seat has been involved in an accident or whether it has been
otherwise damaged.
Ensure that no part of the seat or seat belt is trapped in a door or a folding
seat. If your car has a folding rear seat, ensure that it is correctly latched in its
upright position.
Car interiors can become very hot when left standing in direct sunlight - it is
therefore recommended that the child seat, when not in use, is covered by a
towel etc. This prevents components, particularly those attached to the child
seat, becoming hot and burning the child.
Luggage and other heavy objects should be secured in the car. Loose objects
are liable to cause injury in the event of an accident.
The child seat must not be used without the cover.
Never place your child seat on a table or work surface.
This seat can be used for children of 0-13kg in weight (approximately birth to
13/15 months of age) and is used in conjunction with a 3-point lap and
diagonal safety belt in the rear-facing position only.
When the child seat is not in use, it is recommended that it is
fastened into the car with a seat belt to avoid it being thrown about in the
event of an accident.
In an emergency your child can be released quickly by pressing the red
button on the harness buckle.
Store this child seat in a safe place when it is not being used. Avoid
placing heavy objects on top of it.
If you travel with passengers using both the front and rear passenger
seats, the lighter occupants should be in the rear and the heavier
occupants in the front of the vehicle.
Do not allow your child seat to come into contact with corrosive
substances e.g. battery acid.

checklist
However safe a child seat is, however well built it is, your child's safety depends on you.
Read this final checklist once you have fitted your child seat in your car.
1.
Check that you have adjusted the harness to suit your child. A fitting for winter clothes
will be too loose for a child wearing summer clothes.
2.
Check you have installed your child seat properly using a 3 point lap - see above
installation.
3.
Check that your child seat is secure before each journey.
4.
Make sure that there are no kinks or twists in the car seat belt.
REMEMBER; Misusing your child seat will reduce the protection and safety you offer
your child.
