SAFETY INFORMATION
3.1 About your child
• This Safety Seat is designed and tested to accommodate a
child of a specific range of HEIGHT and WEIGHT. Using the
Safety Seat for a child whose weight or height is outside of
these limits will increase the risk of death or serious injury
in the event of a crash. Please see the Warning label on
the Safety Seat located on the child’s right side for weight
and height limits for your model. Also noted on manual
cover.
• Special needs children, such as pre-term babies, may suffer
difficulties in using this Safety Seat. The angle of recline in this
Safety Seat may not be appropriate for Special Needs babies.
If your child has special needs or any breathing difficulties,
please discuss vehicle Safety Seats with your pediatrician, or
other competent health care provider, to ensure the safety of
your child.
• Use only car seat accessories manufactured by Baby Trend.
Accessories can affect your child’s safety in a sudden stop or
crash.
3.0 Safety
3.2 About your vehicle
• Proper installation of the Safety Seat in your vehicle and proper
securing of your child in the Safety Seat are essential to ensure
the safety of your child. Quick turns, sudden stops, or other
maneuvers in avoiding a crash, as well as a crash, can injure
your child if not properly secured in the seat or if the seat is not
properly installed in the vehicle.
• There are many different types of vehicles, seat belt systems,
or other occupant restraint systems in use today. Accordingly,
this manual can only give guidelines for proper installation in
your vehicle. In addition to this manual, you must also read
and understand the vehicle owner’s manual, which should
address use of child restraints. If your vehicle owner’s manual
does not address the installation of child restraints, please
contact your local vehicle dealer, or the vehicle’s manufacturer,
to obtain this information before using this Safety Seat.
• Some vehicles do not have any safe location for this Safety
Seat to be installed. In addition, many vehicles do not have
seat belt systems that will adequately hold this Safety
Seat in the required position. Please refer to both this manual
and your vehicle owner’s manual for complete information for
proper safe installation of this Safety Seat.
• DO NOT modify or attach any toys, padding, or other items
to this Safety Seat. Untested modifications or padding could
result in injury in a crash.
• Never combine this Safety Seat or Base with any other Safety
Seat or Base from any other manufacturer. If you are in need
of an additional Base, please contact your local dealer or Baby
Trend, Inc. to obtain one.
• Do Not Dress your child in bulky clothing or other garments that
will hinder the harness from being snug around your child and
properly latched between your child’s legs.

• This Car Seat is certified for use in Motor Vehicles and Aircraft
and conforms to all applicable Canadian Motor Vehicle Safety
standards (213 and 213.1).

3.0 Safety
3.3 About Active Air Bags
3.5 About this Safety Seat
NEVER PLACE THIS SAFETY SEAT IN A VEHICLE SEATING
LOCATION THAT HAS AN ACTIVE AIR BAG. If an Active
Air bag inflates, it can hit the safety seat with great force and
cause death or serious injury to your child. Refer to your vehicle
owner’s manual for additional information and warnings about
Active Air bags, and supplemental restraints, and their proper use
with Safety Seats.
• This Safety Seat is constructed of plastic that can deform over
time if left with any object in the seat while stored. DO NOT
leave heavy objects in the seat while not in use. DO NOT store
the seat in the trunk of your car with heavy objects on it or with
pressure on the seat from the trunk lid.
3.4 About an unoccupied Safety Seat
• Never leave the Safety Seat or Base unsecured in your
vehicle. An unsecured seat or base can fly through the vehicle
in the event of a crash, sudden stop or sharp turn and cause
serious injury to the driver, who may then loose control of the
vehicle, or to passengers. When not in use, either remove the
seat and or base from the vehicle or make sure that both are
securely belted to the vehicle according to these instructions.
• The Safety Seat may become very hot if left in direct sunlight.
Your child may suffer burns from hot plastic components.
Always check the seat for hot surfaces that may come into
contact with your child before placing your child in the seat.
We suggest that you cover the seat with a blanket or towel if
it will be subject to direct sunlight while you are away from the
vehicle.
7
3.0 Safety
• Replace the Safety Seat and Base after an accident of
any kind. An accident, even a minor accident, can cause
undetectable damage to the Safety Seat or Base that may
cause the Seat or Base to fail in a subsequent accident. DO
NOT use the safety seat if it is damaged or broken.
• Discontinue use of the Safety Seat and Base after six (6) years
from the date of manufacture. The date of manufacture can
be found on the label located on the underside of the Safety
Seat or Base. When discarding an out of date seat, please
ensure that someone finding the seat will be unable to use it.
We suggest that you disable the seat by removing the pad and
harness and discarding the pieces at different times.

3.0 Safety
3.6 About use as a carrier
Never Leave Your Child Unattended, even if they are asleep.
Very often when you arrive at your destination you will find
that your child has fallen asleep in the Seat. Do not leave the
child unattended, even for a minute. Your child can tip or move
the carrier by their movements, kicking or grabbing on to their
surroundings. If the carrier tips over, your child can suffocate
from the surface that the seat is on as well as from the pressure
on their chest from the safety harness. In addition, if the carrier
is placed too upright, the child’s head can fall forward and cause
the child to have difficulty breathing. To avoid death or serious
injury from suffocation, falls and other hazards:
• Always place the carrier on a firm and level surface. Never
place the carrier on soft or plush surfaces such as a bed,
comforter, couch, sofa, chair, etc. The carrier has a very
high possibility of tipping over if placed on a soft or plush
surface.
• Fall hazard: Child’s movements can slide carrier. Never place
the carrier near the edge of high surfaces such as tables,
counter tops, shelves, or other elevated surfaces. To prevent
falls, stay within arm’s reach whenever the carrier is not on the
floor or ground.
• Child can strangle in loose safety harness straps. Never leave
child in carrier when straps are loose or undone. Always use
the safety harness as instructed in this manual when the child
is in the carrier.
9
3.0 Safety
• Before lifting the carrier with the handle, check that the handle
is firmly locked into position. The carrier will pivot about an
unlocked handle and can result in injury to your child.
• Strings and cords can cause strangulation:
- DO NOT place items with string around a child’s neck, such
as hood strings, pacifier cords, etc.
- DO NOT suspend strings on or over carrier.
- DO NOT attach strings to toys.
- DO NOT place the carrier near a window where cords from
blinds or drapes can strangle a child.
WARNING
• Never leave child unattended.
• SUFFOCATION HAZARD: Infant carrier can roll over on soft
surfaces and suffocate child, NEVER place carrier on beds,
sofas, or other soft surfaces.
• STRANGULATION HAZARD:
- Child can strangle in loose restraint straps. Never leave child in
carrier when straps are loose or undone.
- Children have STRANGLED in loose or
partially buckled harness straps. Fully
restrain the child even when carrier is used
outside the vehicle.
• FALL HAZARD: Child’s activity can move
carrier. Never place carrier on counter tops,
tables, or other elevated surface.

SELECTING THE BEST LOCATION FOR
THE SAFETY SEAT
WARNING
Not every location within an automobile may be safe for the
installation of this Safety Seat. In fact, some automobiles have
no seating position that is safe for the installation of a safety
seat. Improper placement of this Safety Seat within a vehicle
will increase the risk of death or serious injury.
Please follow the instructions in this manual and in your
vehicle owner’s manual carefully to ensure proper location and
installation of this Safety Seat. If you are uncertain about the
proper location of the Safety Seat within the vehicle, contact
your vehicle manufacturer directly, or through their dealer
before using this seat. You are also invited to call Baby Trend
at1-800-328-7363 for additional information or assistance.
4.1 Overall Considerations in Selecting a Location
• The rear seating positions have been shown to be statistically
safer for children than the front seating position.
11
• We recommend that you use the center rear seat position as
the safest location for the Safety Seat. In addition, whenever
possible, have an adult ride in the rear with the child in order to
monitor the child.
4.0 Location
• If the driver is the only adult in the vehicle and the child
requires constant monitoring, then the forward seating position
may be used if there is no passenger side Active Air bag and
all of the following requirements are met for this location.
4.2 Check that the Vehicle Seat Meets the Following
Requirements
WARNING
DO NOT place rear-facing child
seaton front seat with air bag.
DEATH OR SERIOUS INJURY can
occur.The back seat is the safest
placefor children 12 and under.
• Never place this Safety Seat in a vehicle seating location
that has an Active Air Bag! Active Air Bags inflate with great
force! An inflating active Air Bag can strike a Safety Seat
with enough force to cause death or serious injury to your
child. If your v ehicle is equipped with a front passenger side
Active Air bag, please refer to the vehicle’s owner’s manual for
additional information about Active Air bags and child safety
seat installation.

4.0 Location
4.0 Location
• DO NOT place this Safety Seat in any vehicle
seat that faces to the rear or to either side of
the vehicle (Fig. 13-1 & 13-2).
• DO NOT use this Safety Seat in a vehicle
that has a vehicle seat back that does not
lock into place. A seat back that folds forward
must have a latch or locking mechanism to
prevent it from flying forward and striking the
child in a sudden stop or accident.
• Please review your vehicle owner’s manual
to determine the best location for the Safety
Seat or to determine if any locations are
unsafe for safety seat installation. If you
do not have the vehicle owner’s manual
or the owner’s manual does not address
child safety seat installation, please contact
the vehicle manufacturer to obtain this
information before using the safety seat.

Seat. These systems may look safe but their method of
operation precludes their use with the Safety Seat. If you are
unsure if the vehicle seat belt is safe for use with the Safety
Seat, please contact the vehicle manufacturer for additional
information.
Fig. 13-1
Fig. 13-2
4.3 Check that the Vehicle Seat Belt is Safe to Use
The Safety Seat is designed to be tightly installed at all
times. The vehicle seat belt must be capable of maintaining
tight installation at all times. A variety of vehicle seat belt
systems have been installed on vehicles that are not safe
for use with the Safety Seat. Even newer vehicles can have
13
WARNING
Carefully analyze the operation of the vehicle safety belts
before using the Safety Seat. Being able to thread the vehicle
seat belt through the Safety Seat or Base is not an indication
that the vehicle seat belt is safe to use. Carefully read this
section on seat belt systems, review your vehicle owner’s
manual in detail, and heed any and all warning labels on your
vehicle’s seat belt. Your vehicle may require a modification
or special seat belt in order to be safely used with this Safety
Seat. Please see your vehicle dealer for this service.
Seat belt systems that are NOT safe for use with the Safety Seat:
DO NOT use the following types of seat belt systems with the
Safety Seat. These belt systems will not hold the Safety Seat
securely in place at all times. In addition, the locking clip provided
with this product will not make these belt systems safe to use.
14
4.0 Location
• DO NOT use a lap belt that stays loose after
installed and locks only in a crash or sudden
stop. These lap belts utilize an Emergency
Locking Retractor and are often found in
combination with motorized shoulder belts.
Because these belts will allow the Safety
Seat to move about on the seat, the chance
of the Safety Seat being out of the proper
position in a crash is very high. Accordingly,
do not use the Safety Seat with this type of
Seat Belt system. Please see your vehicle’s
dealer or owner’s manual for information on
converting this seat belt system to one that
is acceptable for use with a Safety Seat
(Fig. 15-1).
• DO NOT use a lap/shoulder belt system if
the lap belt and shoulder belt each have
retractors at one end. This type of seat
belt system will not adequately restrain the
Safety Seat (Fig. 15-2).
• DO NOT use a seat belt that is connected
to the door in any way. These types of seat
belts are designed to automatically
surround the occupant when the door is
closed. This type of seat belt will NOT
adequately restrain the Safety Seat.
(Fig. 15-3).
15
4.0 Location
• DO NOT use a seat belt that is anchored on
the seat more than 2 inches forward of the
crease between the seat bottom and the
seat back. This type of seat belt anchors
the Safety Seat too far forward and the
Safety Seat will not be safely restrained in
the vehicle (Fig. 16-1).
Fig. 15-1
Fig. 15-2
Fig. 15-3
• DO NOT use a shoulder belt that moves
along a track. These systems typically
move to surround the occupant when the
door is closed. This type of belt system will
NOT adequately restrain the Safety Seat.
(Fig. 16-2).
If you have any of the above seat belt
systems, DO NOT use it to secure the Safety
Seat in the vehicle. Look in the vehicle for a
location that has a more suitable seat belt
system as described in the section following.
You may a
lso contact your vehicle’s
manufacturer to inquire about installing a
seat belt system that is adequate to restrain
a Safety Seat.

Seat belt systems that are Adequate for use with the Safety
Seat:
The following seat belt systems can be used with the Safety Seat
provided, that all of the other requirements prescribed in these
instructions, including seat position, and all instructions provided
by your vehicle’s owner’s manual are followed.
• A lap belt that is manually adjusted and will
remain tight while the vehicle is in motion is
suitable for use with the Safety Seat. Pulling
the belt through the buckle after the buckle is
fastened tightens this type of seat belt. The
center rear seat belt is most often this type of
seat belt (Fig. 17-1).
• A lap belt that cannot be lengthened once
it is fastened is suitable for use with the
Safety Seat. These seat belts often have
an automatic locking retractor that will
allow the belt to be lengthened but once
fastened, must be unbuckled and allowed
to retract fully before allowing the belt to be
lengthened again (Fig. 17-2).
• A lap/shoulder combination seat belt with a
latch plate that locks the lap belt into position
is suitable for use with the Safety Seat. Once
this type of seat belt is fastened, the latch
plate prevents the lap belt from loosening.
17
Fig. 17-1
This combination seat belt does not require a
locking clip (Fig. 18-1).
• A lap/shoulder combination belt system
with a latch plate that can slide freely along
the belt is suitable for use with the Safety
Seat if it includes a lockable retractor or if
a locking clip is used to secure the lap belt
into position and prevent loosening. Use the
locking clip provided with the Safety Seat as
instructed on page 43. Please refer to your
vehicle’s owner’s manual for additional
information on locking this style of seat
belt. This style of belt must be locked to
prevent movement of the Safety Seat
(Fig. 18-2 & 18-3).

5.8 Adjustment of the Shoulder Straps
4. Loosen the harness straps by
depressing the Harness Adjuster Button
located below the flap just ahead of
the Harness Buckle and pulling on the
harness straps.
The Safety Seat features three height
adjustments for the harness shoulder
straps. The harness straps must be used
in the slots that position the straps to
be even with or just below your child’s
shoulders (Fig. 29-1). The harness straps
are adjusted as follows:
1. Remove the Safety Seat from the Base
and rotate the Carry Handle to the back
position. Place your child in the Safety
Seat such that your child’s bottom is all
the way to the rear and bottom of the
seat.
5. Turn the seat over. Locate the Belt
Adjuster Plate near the bottom of the seat
(Fig. 29-2). Remove both Harness Straps
from the Belt Adjuster Plate. From the
front of the seat, pull the Harness Straps
through the shoulder area slots and seat
pad. Never remove adjuster from Belt
Adjuster Plate (Fig. 30-1).
Fig. 29-1
2. Determine which pair of slots will
position the harness straps even with
or just below your child’s shoulders. DO
NOT use harness slots that will position
the harness straps above your child’s
shoulders as the harness straps in this
position will not restrain a small child in a
sharp turn, sudden stop or crash.
29
3. If the Harness Straps require
adjustment, remove your child from the
Safety Seat. Rotate the handle to the
upright carry position.
6. Using the included Belt Threading Tool,
insert the Harness Straps through the Slots
selected in step 2 above, in the seat pad
and the seat shell, respectively
(Fig. 30-2).
7. From the rear of the Safety Seat, pull the
Harness Straps through the Slots until
you have enough strap to reach the Belt
Adjuster Plate.
Fig. 29-2
8. Reassemble the Harness Straps to the Belt
Adjuster Plate. Do the left Harness Strap
first, followed by the right Harness Strap.
Check that Harness Straps are completely
within the Belt Adjuster Plate loop
(Fig. 30-3).

You have three adjustment positions on the
harness. Use Position A for a smaller child, and
Position B or C for a larger child.
If using Position A, loop B and C must be
on top of the Belt Adjuster Plate (Fig. 31-1).
5.9 Low Birth Weight Adjustment
9. Inspect the Harness Straps from the front and
rear to ensure that they are not twisted. Twisted
straps can prevent proper tightening of the
Harness and thus may not adequately restrain
your child in a sharp turn, sudden stop or crash.
10. Before using the Safety Seat, please pull on the
Harness Straps from the front to ensure that
they are securely reattached.
Fig. 31-1
11. When your harness is set at the correct childs position, attach the
excess harness straps with the hook and loop on the rear side
(Fig. 31-2). NEVER route webbing over the release bar (Fig. 31-3).
The Crotch Shortening clip is only to
be used with children whose weight is
between 1.8 to 4.5 kg (4 to 10 lbs) if the
gap between the buckle and thigh is not
between 1/2” and 1”. The crotch strap
length should be adjusted such that a
gap of 1/2” to 1” is present between the
ears of the buckle, and the top of the
child’s thigh, disregarding any clothing
or diaper (Fig. 32-1). Your child will grow
very quickly so always check that the
buckle is the proper height whenever
placing your child in the Safety Seat.
The crotch strap length is adjusted as
follows:
1a. Stored Shortening Clip: The
shortening clip is stored on the back of
the carrier (Fig. 32-2). To thread and
unthread as needed see the diagram
(Fig. 32-3).

(Fig. 33-1) - (Fig. 33-2).
3. View from underside. Pull slack as
needed (Fig. 33-3).
4. Thread the sewn anchor stamping
from the bottom of shell thru the
middle slot for storage. This storage
is so that the sewn anchor will not
interfere with function or cause a
mis-latch with shell and base when
the “low birth weight” positioner
stamping is used (Fig. 33-4).

6.1 Securing your Child in the Safety Seat / Carrier
USING INFANT RESTRAINT
Your child must meet ALL these requirements:
• Weight between 1.8 and 15.8 kg (4 and 35 lbs).
• Height is 81.3 cm (32 inches) or less.
• The Harness Straps must be at or just
BELOW child’s shoulders when in highest
adjustment position.
WARNING
Children have STRANGLED in
loose or partially buckled harness
straps. Fully restrain the child
even when carrier is used outside
the vehicle.
Failure to properly secure your child in the Safety Seat /
Carrier increases the risk of death or serious injury from
suffocation or falls, or in the event of a sharp turn, sudden
stop or crash.

INFANT RESTRAINT
In a crash, the safety seat provides no protection for
your child unless the Harness Straps are properly
installed according to these instructions. Make sure
that the harness straps are properly adjusted and
secured whenever using the Safety Seat, even when
using as a carrier.
Please follow these instructions carefully to properly
secure your child.
1. Check that the Harness Straps are installed in
the proper slots or adjusted to the proper height
as described in section 5.8, Adjustment of the
Shoulder Straps, preceding.
2. The clothing you dress your child
in will affect the proper use of the
Safety Seat. Please dress your
child in clothing that will:
• Allow the Harness Straps to securely latch between
your child’s legs.
• Keep the shoulder straps properly located on your
child’s shoulders.

• From the front of the Safety Seat, pull outward on the Harness
Adjuster Strap to tighten the Harness Straps. Make sure
that both Harness Straps are flat and snug on your child’s
shoulders. A snug strap should not allow any slack. It lies in a
relatively straight line without sagging. It does not press on the
child’s flesh or push the child’s body into an unnatural position.
• Fasten the Harness Chest Clips together. Position the
Harness Chest Clip, by sliding the Clip either up or down on
the Harness Straps, so that it is level with the child’s armpits.

WARNING:
Toys or other objects
attached to carry handle can cause injury in a crash. Never
attach toys or other objects to handle when in vehicle.
SECURING THE SAFETY SEAT OR BASE
IN THE VEHICLE
Please read carefully section 4.3, Check that the Vehicle Seat
Belt is Safe to Use, before proceeding with the installation of
the Safety Seat. Please understand that due to the extremely
large number of vehicles in use today, and the correspondingly
large number of safety belt systems, this section can only provide
guidance, as to the proper installation of the Safety Seat, that
must be combined with the information provided by your vehicle
manufacturer in order to obtain a proper and safe installation.
WARNING
Failure to properly install and secure the Safety Seat in a rear
facing position within the vehicle increases the child’s risk of
death or serious injury in the event of a sharp turn, sudden stop
or crash. Carefully follow these instructions, and the instructions
provided by your vehicle manufacturer for the installation of child
safety seats, to ensure that the Safety Seat is properly located,
positioned and held tightly installed at all times.

Securing Car Seat in Your Vehicle
7.1 Preparation
1. Park your vehicle on a level surface so that
the level indicator located on the left side of
the Safety Seat will properly indicate the
proper angle of recline of the seat.
2. Make sure you have selected an acceptable
location for the safety seat as instructed in
section Selecting the Best Location for the
Safety Seat on page 11.
3. Check again for any Active Air bags. DO NOT
use any location that has an active air bag or
is adjacent to an Active Air bag such that, when
deployed, the Active Air bag may come into
contact with the Safety Seat. Many passenger
side Active Air bags are designed to deploy
to protect the passenger side as well as the
center front seating position. Please see the
Active Air bag warnings in your vehicle owner’s
manual to help determine unsafe locations
in the vehicle.
4. If the front seat position is used, slide the
vehicle seat as far to the rear as possible to
prevent the safety seat from striking the dash
in a crash. If the rear seat position is used,
slide the vehicle seat directly in front of the
Safety Seat forward enough to prevent the
Safety Seat from striking the vehicle seat back
in a crash.
5. Check that the vehicle seat back is locked in
the upright position and will not fold forward
onto the Safety Seat (Fig. 40-1).

7.9.6 Installation of the Base using UAS
51
Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children (UAS) System is
designed to make installation of child safety seats easier
by requiring child safety seats to be installed without using the
vehicle’s seat belt system. By September 1, 2002, two rear seating
positions of all cars, mini vans and light trucks will come equipped
with lower child safety seat anchor points located between a
vehicle’s seat cushion and seat back. Also by September 1, 2002,
all child safety seats will have two attachments which will connect
to the vehicle’s lower anchor points. Together, the lower anchors
and upper tethers make up the UAS system. Rear-facing infant
seats do not make use of the upper tether.
