RECLINE MECHANISM
TO BE USED WITH A LAP SASH OR LAP ONLY SEAT BELT IN
THE BACK OF MOST CARS WITH FORWARD-FACING SEATS.
To be used only in a rearward-facing position until the
child's shoulders reach the lower shoulder height marker
(approximately 12 months of age). Then to be used in

615mm
Continue to use this restraint in this rear facing mode until the
child's shoulders reach the limit of the lower shoulder height
marker before turning the seat to face forward. A baby's neck
muscles may be unable to support their head thus the baby
should remain rear facing until the neck muscles become
stronger.
The purchaser should check the measurements between the
front of the seat back of the rear seat and all front seats in
the car in which the child restraint is intended to be used, to
ensure that the space is sufficient. If you have the restraint
check it fits in your car.
Regional Road Rules may prohibit the use of this restraint
in the front seat until the child is 4 years of age. Check your
Regional Road Rules for exemptions.

Important: If using an Extension Strap, positioning the Attachment Clip above the baby may lead to
injury in an accident therefore make sure that the Attachment Clip is not positioned in front of the
vehicle seat. Use a shorter extension strap or no extension strap.
ANGULAR ADJUSTMENT OF RESTRAINT
Some vehicle seats have more rearward slope than others. If the angle of the seat causes the baby to
be too upright for comfort, the angle may be altered by placing a firm packing between the seat and
the underside of the base. Packing can be a firmly rolled up towel or nappy.
Do not remove all of the rearward slope by over packing. Always leave a rearward slope angle of
approximately 10 to 15 degrees as shown

ADJUSTING HARNESS STRAP HEIGHT & HEADREST:
FOR BABY USE REARWARD-FACING
Correct fitment of the harness is very important as it restrains the baby in the restraint. The headrest
must be in the correct position and the harness must fit firmly around upper torso of the baby and be
positioned so as to leave the baby's arms and legs free.
For babies in rear facing mode the headrest must be in the position where the top of the shoulder strap
slots are nearest to the child’s shoulders, but not lower than the child’s shoulders. Instructions for
adjusting the headrest is on the next page. If your baby has reached the lower shoulder height marker
then the restraint should be converted for “child use” (Refer to Forward Facing section starting on
page 29).
Lower shoulder
height marker.
1. The shoulder straps must be in the slots which are nearest to the child's shoulders, but not lower
than the child's shoulders. There is only one set of slots so the seat will always have the shoulder
straps in place.
2. Use the Infant Safety Cushion Insert when rear facing for smaller babies until their shoulders reach
the Lower Shoulder Height Marker. Remove the Infant Safety Cushion for longer use whilst still in rear
facing.
3. Discontinue the use of the Infant Safety Cushion Insert if there is insufficient room for the baby or
shoulders reach the Lower Shoulder Height Marker.

discomfort.
A. Ensure the headrest and shoulder straps are adjusted to the
correct height for your child (see page 6 and 7).
B. Slacken the Upper Anchorage Strap and allow the straps to fall to
the sides of the restraint for easy access to the baby.

ADJUSTING HARNESS
STRAP HEIGHT AND
HEADREST: FOR CHILD USE
FORWARD-FACING
Correct fitment of the harness is very
important as it restrains the child in the
restraint. The harness must fit firmly
around the upper torso of the child and
be positioned so as to leave the child's
arms and legs free.
The headrest must be in the position
where the top of the shoulder slots are
nearest to the child’s shoulders, but
not more than 25mm below the child’s
shoulders. If the headrest is in the top
position and the shoulders are above the
upper shoulder height marker then the
child is too tall for the restraint and the
restraint should not be used; move to
next type of restraint (see pages 8 and 9).

B. You do not need to remove the restraint from the
vehicle to adjust the harness or headrest positions.
Small adjustments maybe done with the child the
seat, the child will need to lean forward to allow the
headrest to be pulled forward.
C. To adjust the headrest, gently pull the top of
the headrest forward and then pull up or push
down so that the shoulder strap slots are level
with or slightly above your child’s shoulders. If
the headrest is just above the shoulders then the
harness level will be correct.

NOTE: For comfort ensure the bottom edges of the
headrest are not contacting the child’s shoulders.
The shoulder straps must be in the slots which are nearest to the child's shoulders, but not more than
25mm below the child's shoulders.
D. Release headrest so that it moves back and
locks into position. Ensure that it has locked in
position by gently pushing down on it.
Note: This child restraint does not require the strap to be disconnected to adjust their height, only the
headrest needs to be moved to adjust the shoulder strap position.
E. Ensure there are no twists in the harness strap
and the buckle tongues face the correct way.
F. If the headrest is moved up, then down with
the child in the seat, before use, check that the
headrest cover has not bunched up behind child’s

TO CLEAN HARNESS BUCKLE:
If sticky liquids such as baby formula, fruit juice, etc. get inside
your Harness Buckle, it may become sluggish. An indication of
a sluggish Harness Buckle is that you cannot hear a click when
engaging the Harness Tongues. To restore the Harness Buckle
to good working order it needs to be cleaned as follows:
COVER (STYLE MAY VARY)

Drying the Infant Safety Cushion Insert will take additional time as the impact foam will absorb
moisture. Before washing re-engage the hook and loop on the cover and Seat Pad to prevent the 'hook'
damaging the fabric.
The cover has been designed to protect your child when seated in the restraint. Care should be taken if
children either eat or drink while in the restraint as some food or drink products may cause damage or
marking to the cover. Wash or clean immediately.
Do not pull sticky items from covers as the cover may be damaged - soak in water and gently remove.
C. Engage and disengage the Harness Tongues and Buckles
several times until a strong audible click is heard when inserting
the last tongue.
D. If you still cannot hear a strong audible click after engaging
the Harness Tongues and Buckle, then repeat cleaning several
times. If the Harness Buckle cannot be returned to its original
working condition then contact Britax Childcare Customer
Service.

TRAVELLING TIPS
TRAVELLING TIPS
SAFETY
FEEDING
Never hold a baby in arms when riding in a motor vehicle. In this position the baby could be thrown
against the dashboard, windscreen or other occupant and suffer serious injury or death.
Never breast feed a baby while car is in motion. Babies will require extra feeding if travelling in the
heat. For bottle fed babies, make up the bottles and refrigerate before leaving home for a day trip. Place
in a cool bag and reheat as needed with hot water from a thermos.
When riding in a motor vehicle never nurse a baby and use the same seat belt for both of you. In this
position the baby or child could be crushed.
Children must be secured in appropriate restraints at all times when the car is in motion. Children
travelling unrestrained and standing up in the car are in danger of serious injury or death. Traffic
regulations in all states require children to be secured in child restraints or adult seat belts where
available.
Alternatively, bring boiled water in a thermos and pre-measured amounts of baby formula in small
containers. Use the water from the thermos to mix with the formula when required. Regardless which
method is used, it is always a good plan to carry some boiled water in a sterile container or bottle.
Do not attempt to carry warm milk because germs multiply rapidly in warm milk.
Plan your trip with frequent comfort stops to reduce stress on babies, young children and driver. Keep
the car well ventilated to reduce heat stress. Two car windows should be kept open to maintain a good
flow of fresh air if air conditioning is not used.
Never leave babies or toddlers in a stationary car in the sun because of the risk of heat exhaustion.
Ensure babies and toddlers are adequately shaded from direct sunlight through side or rear windows.
Be on guard against carbon monoxide poisoning which can occur through only a slight leak in the
exhaust system while travelling in a closed car.
Securely stow all heavy objects, feeding bottles, etc. that could become missiles during an accident
and cause injury to any occupant.
CLOTHING
Take several changes of clothing and bibs for possible car sickness. Disposable nappies and liners are
very handy while travelling. Since it is often warmer in the car, dress the baby in light clothing. When
cooler, it is easier to place a blanket over the baby than it is to remove the baby from the restraint and
change clothes.

the parcel shelf/floor/roof, etc. and install anchor bolt and
fitting as shown in Fig 1. CAUTION: DO NOT OVERTIGHTEN ANCHOR BOLT.
OVERTIGHTENING MAY FRACTURE OR BREAK BOLT.
MAXIMUM TORQUE IS 20 N.M. (14.75 ft.lb.)
Note: Minimum of five full turns of anchor bolt is required
before tightening force is applied.
IF THE CAR IS NOT FITTED WITH CHILD
RESTRAINT ANCHORAGE POINTS
For Sedans only - Drill 9mm diameter hole in the parcel shelf
on the centre line of the seating position as shown in Fig 3.
Before drilling the hole, check the underside for accessibility.
Install the anchor bolt as shown in Fig 2.
For vehicles other than Sedans - In Australia, consult your
nearest child restraint fitting station or traffic authority for
vehicle inspection to find the best, correct position for
the placement of the anchorage point, and for the correct
attachment bolt length and use of spacers. In New Zealand,
consult the agent for the vehicle.
Note to Queensland purchasers: The installation of
anchorage points must be approved by authorised officers
appointed by Queensland Transport. Authorised officers can
be sourced from all Queensland Transport Customer Service
and Queensland Ambulance Service Centres.

All Safe-n-Sound child restraints are manufactured to Australian/New Zealand Standards AS/NZS1754-2010
which requires us to advise users of child restraints to "Destroy the entire restraint if it has been in use in a
severe crash, even if no damage is obvious". The joint Australian/New Zealand Standards committee CS/85,
advise that this statement applies whether a child was in the child restraint or not. We consider a "server crash"
as being one where the main body structure of the vehicle is distorted.
There is no method of determining if the restraint has been damaged and we concur with the Australian/New

IN CASE OF ACCIDENT
NOTES
CRASH EXCHANGE
We would never want you to experience an accident, but unfortunately accidents do happen.
If you experience an accident you may be eligible for a free replacement.
The Safe-n-Sound Crash Exchange Program is a voluntary program designed to ensure that our
children are safe and that any seat that may have experienced a severe crash is taken out of the
market.
There is no method of determining if the restraint has been damaged in a severe crash, so the restraint
should be destroyed as the crash may reduce the child restraints ability to perform.
Since its inception in 2006, the Crash Exchange program has helped 100’s of families ensure that their
children have new restraints and that the restraints are not sold second hand placing others at risk.
Our Crash Exchange Terms and Application form are accessible on our website. Please visit
www.britax.com.au for further information.
