Useful notes
The child safety seat has been designed, tested and certified according to
the requirements of the European Standard for Child Safety Equipment (ECE
R 44/03). The seal of approval E (in a circle) and the approval number are
located on the orange approval label (sticker on the child safety seat).
DANGER! This approval will be invalidated if you make any modifications
to the child safety seat. Only the manufacturer is permitted to
make modifications to the child safety seat.
WARNING! Use the KID XP exclusively for securing your child in your
vehicle. It is in no way suitable as a seat or toy in the home.
DANGER! Never secure your child or the child safety seat with a 2-point
belt. If you secure your child in the child seat with only a
2-point belt, then in the event of an accident this may cause
serious injuries to your child, possibly resulting in death.

7. SAFETY NOTES
Please take the time to read these instructions carefully and keep
them to hand in the intended storage compartment 06 on the child
safety seat at all times! The instructions must be with the child safety
seat if the latter is passed on to a third party.
DANGER! For the protection of your child:
• In the event of an accident with a collision speed of more than 10 km/h, the
child safety seat may be damaged without the damage becoming immediately visible. In this case the child safety seat must be replaced. Please
dispose of it properly.
• Have your child safety seat checked as a rule if it was damaged (e.g if it
falls to the ground).
• Regularly check all important parts for damage. Ensure that all mechanical
parts, in particular, are fully functional.
• Never lubricate or oil parts of the child seat.
• Never leave your child unattended in the child seat in the vehicle.
• Let your child in and out of the vehicle from the pavement side as a rule.
• Protect the child safety seat against intensive direct sun radiation,
as long as it is not in use. The child safety seat can become very hot
under direct sun radiation. Child skin is sensitive and could thereby
be injured.
• The more snugly the harness fits over your child's body, the better your will be
protected. Therefore avoid putting thick clothes on your child under the belt.
• Take regular breaks on long journeys in order to give your child the opportunity to play around.
• Use on the rear seat: Push the front seat forwards sufficiently so that the
feet of your child do cannot hit the backrest of the front seat (to avoid the
risk of injury).
