IMPORTANT !
• The American Academy of Pediatricians (AAP) recommends that children ride rear-facing until
the age of 2 or until they reach the maximum rear-facing height or weight rating for their seat,
and when forward-facing, children should use the built-in harness system for as long as possible
until they reach the maximum forward-facing weight or height for their car seat. After reaching
the maximum forward-facing weight or height, they also recommend that children 4 feet 9 inches
(145 cm) tall or under should ride in a belt-positioning booster seat.
• Secure this child restraint with the vehicle’s child restraint anchorage system (LATCH) if available
or with a vehicle belt.
• Do not use both the vehicle seat belt and LATCH strap at the same time when using the car seat
with the 5-point harness.
• Always secure car seat with LATCH or a vehicle seat belt, even when unoccupied. In a crash, an
unsecured car seat can injure passengers.
• ALWAYS store the LATCH connectors when they are not being used for installation.
•N

by the vehicle manufacturer.
• DO NOT remove LATCH system from car seat. If using vehicle seat belt to secure car seat, LATCH
connectors must be stored.
• DO NOT allow children to play with or around this child restraint.
• If car seat is in a crash, it must be replaced. DO NOT use it again! A crash can cause unseen damage and using it again could result in serious injury or death.

LATCH SYSTEM
CHOOSING LATCH OR SEAT BELTS
This car seat can be installed in your vehicle using either the vehicle seat belt OR the LATCH system, both are
equally safe to use. You can use both vehicle seat belt and LATCH system ONLY in the booster mode and if
the LATCH connectors DO NOT interfere with any vehicle seat belts or buckles.
For seating positions equipped with LATCH, experts recommend trying the LATCH installation first and only
using the seat belt in that seating position if LATCH, for some reason, results in a looser fit. If you want to
use the center rear seat and LATCH is not available in that position (check the vehicle owner’s manual), try
the seat belt to be sure you can get a tight installation. If you cannot, try using LATCH in a different seating
position. Remember to only use LATCH in seating positions recommended by your vehicle manufacturer.
Do not use the lower anchors of the child restraint anchorage system (LATCH system) to attach this child
restraint when restraining a child weighing more than 45 lb (20 kg) with the internal harnesses of the child
restraint.
HOW TO REMOVE LATCH AND TOP TETHER
LATCH
To remove the LATCH connectors from the lower
anchors, push in on the red buttons and pull them off.
Top Tether Strap
To remove, lift up on the tether lock to release the tension.
Press in on the hook’s spring. Push tether hook in, then lift
up and pull away from tether anchor.
9
IMPORTANT !
LATCH stands for Lower Anchors and Tethers for CHildren. LATCH consists of
lower anchors and top tether anchors, which are built-in to your vehicle,
and connecting hooks that are built-in to your car seat. Lower anchors
are used INSTEAD of the vehicle’s seat belt to secure the child seat to
the vehicle. Top tethers are used IN ADDITION to the lower anchors OR
the vehicle’s seat belt to secure a forward-facing car seat to the vehicle.
The LATCH system can make installation easier without using the vehicle’s seat
belts. LATCH is a way to secure your child restraint to your vehicle by using the
LATCH connectors on your child restraint. These connectors attach to the lower
anchors in certain vehicle seating positions. Refer to your vehicle owner’s manual
for LATCH locations.
The child restraint’s lower anchors are designed to be used at the standard LATCH spacing of 11” (28 cm)
from the center of one anchor point to the center of another anchor point. Please refer to your vehicle owner’s
manual for information about using LATCH in certain seating positions.
If your vehicle does not have lower anchor points, you can still safely install your child restraint with the
vehicle’s belt system.
VEHICLE INFORMATION
CHOOSING VEHICLE SEAT LOCATION
WARNING!
• DO NOT place rear-facing child seat on front seat with airbag. DEATH or
SERIOUS INJURY can occur.
• Failure to place the child restraint in the correct seating positions increases
the risk of serious injury or death.
• The back seat is the safest place for children 12 and under. Owners of
vehicles with airbags should refer to their owner’s manual for child restraint
installation instructions.
•The VEHICLE seat must face forward.
• Some vehicles have specific requirements for where the car seat can be
installed, so be sure to check your vehicle owner’s manual for available
seating positions, if any. For example, sometimes the center rear seat has
a lap only vehicle seat belt, which cannot be used when this car seat is in
Booster mode.
•NEVER place the child restraint on any vehicle seat that does not lock.
Folding seats can fall forward and could cause serious injury to your child
in a vehicle crash.
•Never install this car seat in booster mode with vehicle lap only seat belt.
In the event there is no available back seat and / or you have no other option than to place a child other than
an infant in a rear-facing car seat in a front passenger seating position, the National Highway Traffic Safety
Administration (NHTSA) recommends that you take the following steps:
• Ensure the child is properly restrained according to their age and size.
• Move the seat as far back as possible.
• Make sure the child is not leaning out of position, such as leaning forward into the deployment path of
the air bag.
• Set the air bag ON-OFF switch, if available, to the OFF position.

VEHICLE INFORMATION
LAP/SHOULDER SEAT BELT INSTALLATION - HARNESS MODE
Always review your vehicle owner’s manual for specific information about your vehicle seat belts.
There are three types of retractors: ELR (Emergency Locking Retractor), ALR (Automatic
Locking Retractor) , and Switchable (ELR switch to ALR). To determine your type of
retractor, follow these steps:
1. Slowly pull the belt out about halfway and stop.
2. Let the belt retract back several inches.
3. Try to slowly pull the belt out more. If the belt cannot be pulled any
further, it is ALR. If it can be pulled further, go to the next step.
4. Slowly pull the belt all the way out, and then allow it
to retract several inches.
5. Try to pull the belt all the way out again. If it cannot be pulled out, it is
Switchable. If it can still be pulled out freely, it is ELR.
Note: Most vehicles manufactured after 1996 will have Switchable retractors in the back
seat. If you have any questions about your retractor type, consult your vehicle owner’s
manual or call Baby Jogger for assistance.

HOW TO LOCK YOUR LAP/SHOULDER VEHICLE SEAT BELT
A latchplate that slides freely on the belt webbing
and cannot, by itself, hold the belt snug around a car
seat.
When installing the car seat, route the vehicle seat
belt through the proper belt path and buckle it in.
Slowly pull the shoulder belt all the way out to
switch it to locking mode. Then, as you pull the
vehicle seat belt tight, feed all the slack back into the
retractor.
Grab the sides of the seat at the belt path and slide
the seat side to side and front to back. The seat
should not move more than 1” (2.5 cm).
Note: With the vehicle seat belt in this locking mode, all the tension is upwards in the
shoulder belt. This may start to tilt your car seat sideways. If this happens, use a locking clip
instead of switching the retractor. See Sliding Latch Plate and ELR Retractor.
Locking Latchplate and ELR Retractor
A latchplate that holds the lap belt snug after it
has been adjusted; contains a metal bar on the
underside of the hardware that “locks” the belt in
position.

belt through the proper belt path and buckle it in.
Then, pull upwards on the shoulder belt so that the
lap belt gets tight around the car seat.
