Warning
WARNING!
DEATH Title
or SERIOUS INJURY can occur:
Section
• Use only in a rear-facing position when using it with an infant
weighing less than 20 lbs (9.1 kg).
• Use only with children who weigh between 5 and 70 lbs
(2.3 – 31.8 kg) and whose height is 49 in. (124.5 cm) or
less. Use rear-facing for children who weigh between 5 and
40 lbs (2.3 – 18.1 kg). Use forward-facing for children who
weigh between 20 and 70 lbs (9.1 – 31.8 kg).
• Snugly adjust the belts provided with this child restraint
around your child. A snug strap should not allow any slack.
It lies in a relatively straight line without sagging. It does not
press into the child’s flesh or push the child’s body into an
unnatural position.
• Secure the top anchorage strap provided with this child seat.
• Secure this child restraint with the vehicle’s child restraint
anchorage system if available, or with a vehicle seat belt.
• Follow all instructions on this child restraint and in the written
instructions located in the pocket behind the cover.
• Register your child restraint with the manufacturer.
• This child seat must be reclined to position 3 when installed
rear-facing (see page 15).
• Use the inner buckle slot when installed rear-facing.
• Use the outer buckle slot when installing the child seat
forward-facing with a child weighing 30 lbs (13.6 kg) and
above or if the buckle is under the child in the inner position.
• When installing in forward-facing mode this child seat must be
in position 1 or position 2 (see page 15).
• HUGS™ chest pads must be used in forward-facing mode.
Removal of HUGS is optional only for rear-facing mode.
• To prevent injury due to deterioration or hidden damage,
discontinue use of this child seat if it is older than seven years
or has been in a moderate or severe crash (see page 3). See
Serial Number and Manufactured Date Label on child seat
(page 11).
• This child seat must not be used in the home, in boats, or
other non-certified applications.
• Based on crash statistics, the National Highway Traffic Safety
Administration (NHTSA) recommends that parents select the
back seat as the safest location for a properly installed child
seat. Please study Vehicle Seating Positions on page 9 to
ensure your child’s safety and consult your vehicle owner’s
manual.
• Secure this child seat even when it is not occupied. In a
crash, an unsecured child seat may injure vehicle occupants.
• When using in a vehicle with air bags, refer to your vehicle
owner’s manual for child seat installation instructions and
precautions.
• Never use the harness adjuster strap to lift or carry this child
seat. Doing so could cause damage to harness adjuster and
webbing. Always carry this child seat by its shell or tether
straps.
2
• The primary protection for occupants of a vehicle in a collision
is the body of the vehicle itself; a child seat will not protect a
child when a vehicle is seriously impacted. However, correctly
installed, a child seat will substantially improve chances for
survival in most crashes. Make sure all users fully understand
the correct ways to use this child seat in a vehicle.
• Refer to your vehicle owner’s manual or contact the vehicle
manufacturer for the maximum weight rating for their lower
anchors. Use vehicle seat belt (not lower connectors) for
installations with children who weigh more than the vehicle
lower anchor limit. Unless specified otherwise by the vehicle
manufacturer, assume a 40 lb (18.1 kg) child is the vehicle
lower anchor limit.
• The use of non-Britax Child Safety, Inc., covers, inserts,
toys, accessories, or tightening devices is not approved by
Britax. Their use could cause this child seat not to perform as
intended in a crash.
Important Notes
• Verify that the child seat is securely installed and the harness is
properly adjusted around the child each time the child seat is used.
• Discontinue use of this child seat if it has been in a moderate
or severe crash. It is not necessary to replace a car seat after a
minor crash defined by the US National Highway Traffic Safety
Administration (NHTSA) as:
* The vehicle is driveable from the crash site; and
* The vehicle door nearest the child seat was not damaged; and
* No vehicle occupants were injured; and
* There is no visible damage to the child seat; and
* The airbags (if present) did not deploy.
• Adjust the harness to fit the clothes the child is wearing. Remove
bulky coats and/or jackets before putting the child in child seat.
• Cover the child seat when the vehicle is parked in direct sunlight.
Metal parts of child seat could become hot enough to burn a child.
• Store the child seat in a safe place when it is not being used. Avoid
placing heavy objects on top of it.
• Do not leave children alone in a vehicle, even for a short time.
• Do not, except as described in this booklet, attempt to disassemble
any part of the child seat or change the way the harness or vehicle’s
seat belts are used.
• Do not leave loose objects, e.g. books, bags, etc., in the back of
a vehicle. In the event of a sudden stop, loose objects will keep
moving, potentially causing serious injuries.
• Do not leave folding vehicle seats unsecured or unlatched. In the
event of a sudden stop, a loose seat back could cause the child seat
not to perform as intended.
• Do not allow children to play with this child seat.
• Do not use anything to raise the child seat off vehicle seat except as
described in these instructions. Their use could cause the child seat
not to perform as intended in a crash.

Important Child Seat Usage Information
Rear-Facing: 5 – 40 lbs (2.3 – 18.1 kg)
American Academy of Pediatrics recommends: All infants and
toddlers should ride in a Rear Facing Car Seat until they are
2 years of age or until they reach the highest weight or height
allowed by their car safety seat’s manufacturer.
Britax strongly recommends that children ride rear-facing to the
highest weight or height specified.
WARNING! REAR-FACING use of this child seat is
ONLY for children who meet ALL of the following requirements.
If the child cannot be secured within these requirements
because they are too small, use of the infant positioning insert
or selection of a different child seat (such as an infant car seat)
may be required. If the child cannot be secured within these
requirements because the child is too large, review the forwardfacing guidelines on page 5.

Safety Information
An infant positioning insert may be necessary for small infants
to achieve a snug fit if the child is under 12 lbs (5.4 kg) and the
lowest harness slots fall above the infants shoulders. The infant
positioning insert is sold separately at select retailers and on www.
britaxusa.com.
Use rear-facing with children:
• who weigh 5 – 40 lbs
(2.3 – 18.1 kg) and
• when the top of the child’s head is at
least 1 in. (2.5 cm) below the top of the
child seat shell (Fig. A) and
• when the harness straps are at or slightly
below the child’s shoulders (Fig. A).

Rear-Facing
When installed in the rear-facing position, the child
seat should be reclined at least 30˚ from vertical for
children and up to 45˚ from vertical for infants unable
to maintain head and neck control (not to exceed
45˚) when the car is parked on a level surface. When
installing the seat in rear-facing mode, recline the
seat to position 3 and use the guide line on the child
seat to help achieve an acceptable recline angle for
rear-facing installations.
Forward-Facing
IMPORTANT: In forward-facing installations, it is important that the base of
the child seat rests completely flat on the vehicle seat. As illustrated below,
it is permissible to allow up to 20% or 3 in. (7.6 cm) of the base to hang
over the edge of the vehicle seat. Some vehicle seats do not allow enough
of the child seat base to contact the vehicle seat. If this is the case, adjust
the recline angle to a more upright position. Not doing so could cause the
child seat not to perform as intended.

Child Seat Functions
WARNING! In some cases, the vehicle
head restraint can prevent the child seat head pad
from being raised high enough to properly adjust
the harness for the fit of your child when using a
forward facing reclined position. DO NOT force the
child seat head pad past the vehicle head restraint.
Doing so could cause the child seat not to perform
as intended. If the location of the vehicle head
restraint interferes with the child seat head pad,
raise or remove the vehicle head restraint. If the vehicle head restraint
cannot be removed, move the child seat to the upright position or try a
different seating location.
Using the Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children
(LATCH)
The Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children or LATCH, is a system
available on this child seat that offers an alternative to vehicle seat belt
installation methods. See pages 10 and 11 for LATCH components on this
child seat.

down in the slots.
Using the Versa-Tether®
WARNING! Failure to follow the guidelines below may
cause the child seat not to perform as intended:
• You MUST always use the Versa-Tether when using the
child seat forward-facing. Using the tether will improve the
stability of your child seat and reduce the risk of injury.
• Attach the Versa-Tether only to tether anchors identified by
your vehicle manufacturer as tether anchorage points. Only
use the designated tether anchor for each seating position.
• If your vehicle does not currently have a tether anchor
attachment, refer to your vehicle owner’s manual or contact
your vehicle manufacturer for assistance. DO NOT modify
your vehicle without advice from your vehicle manufacturer.
• Store the Versa-Tether in the pouch on the back of the child
seat when not in use. DO NOT install the child seat with the
Versa-Tether attached to the carry clip.
17
Child Seat Functions
Tether anchor locations vary from vehicle to
vehicle. Check your vehicle owner’s manual
and look for the tether anchor symbol shown
in the diagram to help identify where the
top tether anchor points are located in your
vehicle. Britax recommends that the tether be
used at all times when installing the child seat.
Using the tether will improve the stability of
your child seat and reduce the risk of injury.

replacement of the child seat is
necessary.
Figure 1 shows a tether acceptable
for continued use (provided the child
seat has not been involved in a
crash). The colored stitching will be
intact and not visible from the back of
the seat.
Figures 2 and 3 show examples of
when the tether has been damaged
and is unacceptable for continued use.
If one or both of the loops have pulled
through the back of the shell and/or
any of the colored stitching has ripped,
the child seat is no longer acceptable
for use.
IMPORTANT: Discontinue use of
child seat if it has been involved in a
moderate or severe crash, regardless
of whether the loops have pulled
through the back side of the shell and
the colored stitching has been ripped.

Rear-Facing Installation
LATCH Installation
Before You Begin:
• Check that your vehicle has lower anchors.
* Refer to your vehicle owner’s manual or contact the vehicle
manufacturer for the maximum weight rating for their lower
anchors. Use vehicle belt (not lower connectors) for installations
with children who weigh more than the vehicle lower anchor limit.
Unless specified otherwise by the vehicle manufacturer, assume
a 40 lb (18.1 kg) child is the vehicle lower anchor limit.
• Remove the lower connectors from the storage slots in the
base. Press the adjuster release button and pull the strap to full
length. Repeat for the second strap.
• Recline this child seat to position 3 and place rear-facing on the
vehicle seat (see page 15).
* When properly installed in the rear-facing
position, the back angle of the child seat
should be at least 30˚ for children and up
to 45˚ from vertical for infants unable to
maintain head and neck control (not to
exceed 45˚) when the car is parked on a
level surface. Use the blue line as a guide
to achieve the proper recline angle for rearfacing installations. The blue line will be parallel to the ground
when the child seat angle is at the center of the angle range
(30 – 45˚). If necessary, the proper recline angle can be achieved
by placing a rolled towel or pool noodle in the vehicle seat bight.
• Britax recommends that the Versa-Tether is used at all times.
Using the tether will improve the stability of the child seat and
reduce the risk of injury. Check your vehicle owner’s manual
for tether anchor locations. See page 18 for possible rear-facing
tether configurations.
Install with the LATCH as shown above.

Lap-Shoulder Belt Installation
Before You Begin:
• Check that your vehicle belt is compatible for use with child
seats. See pages 6 – 8 for more information.
* If your vehicle seat belt system includes a locking feature,
use of the lock-offs is not required as long as the vehicle seat
belt system is locked. Check your vehicle owner’s manual to
determine how to lock your vehicle seat belt system when
installing a child restraint.
• Recline this child seat to position 3 and place rear-facing on the
vehicle seat (see page 15).
* When properly installed in the rear-facing
position, the back angle of the child seat
should be at least 30˚ for children and up
to 45˚ from vertical for infants unable to
maintain head and neck control (not to
exceed 45˚) when the car is parked on a
level surface. Use the blue line as a guide
to achieve the proper recline angle for rearfacing installations. The blue line will be
parallel to the ground when the child seat angle is at the center
of the angle range (30 – 45˚). If necessary, the proper recline
angle can be achieved by placing a rolled towel or pool noodle
in the vehicle seat bight.
• Britax recommends that the Versa-Tether is used at all times.
Using the tether will improve the stability of the child seat and
reduce the risk of injury. Check your vehicle owner’s manual
for tether anchor locations. See page 18 for possible rear-facing
tether configurations.
Install with the lap-shoulder belt as shown above.
IMPORTANT:
• The harness buckle strap should lie toward the back of the
child seat during installation.
• The buckle should be in the inner slot for rear-facing
installation.

Before You Begin:
• Check that your vehicle has lower anchors.
* Refer to your vehicle owner’s manual or contact the vehicle
manufacturer for the maximum weight rating for their lower
anchors. Use vehicle belt (not lower connectors) for installations
with children who weigh more than the vehicle lower anchor limit.
Unless specified otherwise by the vehicle manufacturer, assume a
40 lb (18.1 kg) child is the vehicle lower anchor limit.
• Remove the lower connectors from the storage slots in the base.
Press the adjuster release button and pull the lower connector
strap to full length. Repeat for the second strap.
• Remove the Versa-Tether from the pouch and place it up and over
the child seat back.
* Britax recommends that the Versa-Tether is used at all times. Using
the tether will improve the stability of the child seat and reduce
the risk of injury. Check your vehicle owner’s manual for tether
anchor locations. Only attach the Versa-Tether to anchor points
designated to the chosen seating position as indicated by your
vehicle owner’s manual.
• Adjust this child seat to position 1 or 2 and place forward-facing
on the vehicle seat (see page 15).
* Ensure that no more than 20% or 3 in. (7.6 cm) of the base hangs
over the edge of the vehicle seat.
Install with the LATCH as shown above.
WARNING!
• Your child seat may not perform as intended if the base of the child
seat is not flat on the vehicle seat.
• Some vehicle head restraints may obstruct
the harness adjuster from reaching the
highest position. If this is the case, you may
need to raise or remove the vehicle head
restraint. DO NOT force the child seat head
pad past the vehicle head restraint. Doing so

Tips and Troubleshooting
Troubleshooting
Problem: The harness cannot be adjusted to its full height.
Possible Solution: Check the seating position where the child seat
is installed. The vehicle head restraint may obstruct the path of the
child seat harness height adjuster. Remove or raise the vehicle head
restraint and try adjusting the harness height again.
Problem: The harness is hard to adjust.
Possible Solution: The yoke may be caught on the Versa-Tether®
webbing or other component of the child seat. Remove the obstruction
and try adjusting the harness again. Always store the Versa-Tether in
the pouch provided when not in use. When the Versa-Tether is in use,
always secure excess webbing in the elastic strap. See pages 17 – 19.
Possible Solution: The vehicle seat back may hinder harness
adjustment. Ensure the child seat base is flat on the vehicle seat.
Possible Solution: The harness may be at maximum or minimum
height, the harness may be too tight to adjust, or the child’s weight
may be pressing against the head pad. Check for and correct all of the
above where necessary and try adjusting the harness again.
Problem: The adjuster strap is fraying at the sides.
Possible Solution: Pull the harness adjuster strap up and away from
the child seat to tighten. Do not pull sideways. Doing so may cause the
harness adjuster strap to fray at the sides. See page 33.
Problem: The buckle will not fasten with a click after each tongue
is inserted.
Possible solution: There may be debris in the buckle mechanism.
Clean the buckle as shown on page 38 and try fastening the buckle
again.
