Seat reclining lock SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS Adjusting the harnesses PLEASE READ THESE INSTRUCTIONS CAREFULLY BEFORE BEGINNING THE INSTALLATION. IF THE SEAT IS NOT INSTALLED CORRECTLY, YOUR CHILD’S SAFETY MAY BE AT RISK. DO NOT USE THIS CHILD SEAT ON A PASSENGER SEAT FITTED WITH AN AIR BAG! The seat may be installed in a front-facing or rear-facing position with a 3-point safety belt to UN/ECE No.16 standard or equivalent. Do not use it on side-facing or rear-facing seats. Always remember to fasten and correctly adjust the child’s harness and never start the car without first checking that the seat is properly fixed to the passenger seat as shown in these instructions. Do not use weight-bearing contact points other than those described in the instructions and indicated on the restraint system. It is important to check that the straps of the seat belt are fully tightened and that the harness lap strap is positioned as low as possible to support your child’s pelvis. Check that the seat belt and harness straps are not twisted. For maximum protection, there must be no slack between the car seat and the passenger seat. Please refer to the method recommended in these instructions. The seat must not be modified in any way and no elements should be added. It is recommended that you replace this car seat if it has been subjected to a severe impact following an accident or in case of wear. You should regularly check that the harness is not showing signs of wear; check in particular the harness points, the seams and the adjustment devices. Never leave your child unattended in the seat. Check that no part of the seat is trapped in the door or in a fold-down passenger seat. If your car has a fold-down rear seat, check that it is correctly locked in the vertical position. Direct exposure to the sun increases the temperature inside vehicles. For this reason, you are advised to cover the child’s car seat when not in use in order to prevent the elements, in particular the fixations, from getting hot and burning the child. Do not use your car seat without its cover and only replace it with a cover that has been recommended by the manufacturer. In an emergency, the child must be able to be freed quickly. The buckle, which can be easily opened, must therefore not be covered. Teach your child not to play with the buckle. Always remember to check that there are no scraps of food or other remains in either the harness buckle or the central adjuster. Luggage and other heavy or sharp objects must be fixed down in the car. Objects that are not attached may injure a child in the event of an accident. In winter, make sure that the child is not wearing over-bulky clothes.

The harnesses can be adjusted to 4 different heights and must be positioned as close as possible to your child’s shoulders (2). • The two lower positions are ONLY intended for use in group 0, for a child weighing from 0 to 10 kg in a rear-facing position.
