• The harness straps must always be locked when the child is
in the seat.
• The harness straps must be tightened without slack and not twisted.
• The seat cover contains magnets in the areas with the

• We recommend to use the seat as long as possible in the
rearward-facing installation.
• We recommend that this seat is used only for children who
can sit upright, so not younger than 6 months.
• For children under 1 year and/or under 10 kg weight, we
recommend that the most reclined sitting position and the
body hugger and seat cushion are used.
• When the child weighs over 18 kg or the shoulder height
grows above the highest position of the shoulder straps, the
child must change to a group 2/3 seat.
• After an accident, the seat must be replaced. Although it
may look undamaged, if you were to have another accident,
the seat may not be able to protect your child as well as it should.
• Prevent the seat from becoming trapped or weighed down
by luggage, seats and/or slamming doors.
• Before every use, make sure the harness is not damaged or twisted.
• Make sure you can fit no more than one finger between the
harness and your baby (1cm).
• If in doubt, consult either the child restraint manufacturer or
the retailer.

fixing points of the rails of the front seat of
the vehicle.

underneath the rail on the vehicle seat
chassis. Reassemble the fixing bolts
and tighten firmly (3).
c- Thread the belt loop of the anchor belt
through the opening of the attachment
fitting. Then bring the anchor belt

Practical Advice
If the seat is standing too upright: Push the front seat forward,
follow the described installation, by pulling the anchor belts as
much as possible before you lock the height of the foot support,
the car seat cushion will be compressed and you will achieve a
more reclined position for your child. Finally lock the foot support.

Important advice
Guarantee
• DO NOT attempt to dismantle, modify or add any part to the
seat. Warranty will expire if non-original parts or accessories
are used.
• DO NOT use anything, such as a cushion, to raise the child
seat off the passenger seat of the vehicle. In an accident the
seat will not be able to protect your child in the right way.
• Never leave your child unattended in the seat.
• Make sure all passengers are informed about how to release
your child in case of emergency. • An unoccupied child seat should always be fastened in the vehicle.
• Make sure luggage or other objects are properly secured.
Unsecured luggage may cause severe injuries to children and
adults in case of accidents. • Never use the seat without the cover. The cover is a safety
feature and may only be replaced by an original BeSafe cover.
• Under the fabric cover we use EPS foam. Do not push or pull
too hard against the foam, since you might damage the foam.
• Do not use any aggressive cleaning products; these may harm
the construction material of the seat.
• BeSafe advises that child seats should not be bought or sold
second-hand.
• KEEP this user manual for later use with the seat.

defects are caused by wrong and improper use, when
defects are caused by abuse, misuse or negligence.
Practical advice
When the child seat is mounted in the car check all the areas
where the child seat might touch the interior. We recommend
using a (BeSafe) protection cover in these places to avoid cuts,
marks or discolouration on the interior of the vehicle, especially
in vehicles with leather or wooden interior.
