7. SAFETY NOTES
Please take the time to read these instructions carefully and keep
them to hand in the intended storage compartment 13 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.
‡ As a rule, have your child safety seat checked if it was damaged (e.g if it
falls on 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.
‡ Only allow your child to enter and exit the vehicle on the pavement side.
‡ Protect the child safety seat from intensive direct sunlight when it is not in
use. The child safety seat can get very hot in direct sunshine. Child skin is
sensitive and could thereby be harmed.
‡ The more snugly the belt ¿ts over your child's body, the better they 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: Move the front seat forward far enough that you
child's feet cannot hit the backrest of the front seat (to prevent risk of
injury).
DANGER! For the protection of all vehicle occupants:
In the case of an emergency stop or an accident, unsecured persons or
objects may cause injury to other vehicle occupants. Please always check
that...
‡ the backrests of the vehicle seats are locked (i.e. that any foldable rear
seat bench latch is engaged).
‡ all heavy or sharp-edged objects in the vehicle (e.g. on the parcel shelf)
are secured.
‡ all persons in the vehicle have their seatbelts fastened.
‡ the child safety seat is always secured when it is in the vehicle, even if no
child is being transported.
WARNING! For your protection when handling the child seat:
‡ Never use the child safety seat free-standing, not even for test sitting.
‡ :hen swivelling up the backrest 16 , nothing must come between the
backrest 16 and the seat cushion 10 . You or your child could pinch your
¿ngers, injuring them.
‡ To avoid damage, ensure that the child safety seat is not jammed in between
hard objects (car door, seat rails, etc.).
‡ Keep the child safety seat in a safe place when it is not in use. Do not place
any heavy objects on the seat and do not store it directly next to sources of
heat or in direct sunlight.

9. INSTALLATION
CAUTION! To protect your vehicle:
‡ Certain car seat covers made from more sensitive materials (e.g. velour, leather, etc.) may sustain signs of wear and tear when using child safety seats. For
optimum protection of your car seat covers, we recommend using the BRITAX
RÖMER car seat protector from our range of accessories.
A correctly set headrest 14 ensures that the diagonal seat belt section 18 is
optimally positioned, and gives your child optimum protection.
The headrest 14 must be adjusted so that there is a space two ¿ngers wide
between the headrest 14 and your child's shoulders.
To adMust the height of the headrest to ¿t your
child:
15 14
1. Grip the adjustment handle 15 on the back of the
headrest 14 and pull it upwards.
This unlocks the headrest.
2. You can now move the unlocked headrest 14 to
the desired height. As soon as you release the
adjustment handle 15 , the headrest 14 will lock
into place.
14
3. Place the child safety seat on the vehicle seat.
4. Have your child sit down in the child safety seat and
check the height. Repeat the procedure until the
headrest 14 has the correct height.
Press the SICT 03 into both SICT fastening points on
the side of the child seat nearest the vehicle door 05
and clip in the SICT 03 .
CAUTION! Make sure that there is a gap of approximately 5 mm between the SICT
and the vehicle door in order to avoid
pressure marks and other damage to
the door trim.
6. Guide the diagonal seat belt section 18 into the dark
red belt holder 09 of the headrest 14 until it lies
completely in the belt holder 09 and is not twisted.
Tip! If the backrest 16 conceals the belt holder 09 ,
you can adjust the headrest 14 upwards. The diagonal
seat belt section 18 can now be easily inserted. Now
return the headrest 14 to the proper height.
7. Make sure that the diagonal belt 18 runs over your
child's shoulder, and not in front of his or her neck.
Tip! You can still adjust the height of the headrest
14 again here in the vehicle.
DANGER! The diagonal seat belt section 18 must
run diagonally backward. You can
adjust the course of the belt with your
vehicle's adjustable belt deÀector.
DANGER! The diagonal belt 18 must never be directed forwards to the belt deÀector on
the vehicle. In this case, use the child
safety seat on the back seat only.
8. Tighten the vehicle seat belt by pulling on the diagonal seat belt section 18 .
