Contents © 1 x Backrest 9 1 x Booster Seat 9 1 x Reversible Cushion Q 1 x Safety Belt Buckle (detachable) Assembly Before Use To set up your car seat, remove all packaging and set down on a flat surface. Your child seat consists of 2 parts, the booster seat and back rest. Ensure that both pieces are lying flat and facing upwards before assembly (Fig A) Place the 2 hooks that are located at the bottom of the backrest over the bars that are located on the booster seat section. Ensure they are correctly aligned. With one hand placed over the joint where the hooks are placed in the gaps, use your free hand to push the backrest up along the path of the arrows, until it is in the upright position and the hooks are engaged. WARNING: Do NOT force the backrest into the upright position until it is aligned correctly. Note: The car seat will stand upright when it is placed into the car as intended i.e. the backrest will be supported by the back of the car’s own seat. Therefore it will not have an audible click when pushed up. O f N Your Lane car seat is now ready for use. Group 1 (9 - 18kgs) 1. To fit your Lane car seat on the rear passenger seat with the cars 3-point safety belt system, ensure that the seat is upright and as close to the passenger seat cushion as possible. 2. Thread the diagonal vehicle seatbelt through the fabric seat belt slot (marked by a red arrow) and the lap strap under the ‘arm’ of the booster seat. 3. Pass the seat belt through the back of the seat (underneath the harness straps), and through the parallel seatbelt slot. 4. Hook the seatbelt over the parallel ‘arm’ of the booster seat, and click the seat belt in place. 5. Ensure that the seatbelt is not twisted. 6. Tighten the seat belt until your car seat feels secure by threading as much of it back into the car's seatbelt slot and pull the seatbelt firmly to lock it into position. To secure the harness Manoeuvre the left and right shoulder straps over your childs shoulders, and bring the two metal prongs together. Click the joined ‘prong’ into the waist buckle. Adjusting the harness In the centre of the booster seat, underneath the Kiddu logo, you will find a small button. Pressing this will release the harness and allow you to manoeuvre the harness into a position that best fits your child. As your child grows, remove the support pad and adjust the harness by removing the shoulder straps individually from the metal slider plate at the back of the seat, and inserting them through the higher slots. Group 2 (15-25kgs) 1. When your child is between 15-18kgs, and ready for Group 2, remove the harness altogether. 2. Thread the car's 3 point lap belt under both armrests and over the lap of your child, and position the diagonal belt through the headrest (marked by red arrows) and insert the belt into the buckle as normal. It is very important that the seatbelt is threaded correctly through the headrest. 3. Ensure that the car seat is secure. Make sure that the seatbelt is not twisted. The headrest is manoeuvrable, and should be adjusted as your child grows. Adjust the height by gently pulling the headrest upwards until it ‘clicks’ into place. The top of the headrest must never be below the eyeline of your child. у J — 7) J ZÑ — A > NT y M 2 — 7 ©  \ h / y Group 3 (22-36kgs) Ensure that all harnesses and pads have been removed. Remove the back cushion by placing the base on a flat surface, and pushing the backrest down until the seat is completely flat. You should then be able to lift the backrest off the booster seat. Place the booster seat onto the rear passenger seat in a forward facing position. Once your child is seated on the cushion, thread the cars safety belt under both armrests and over your childs lap, making sure that the seatbelt is not twisted. Thread the diagonal belt above the armrest, then fix the belt into the buckle as normal. Harness Threading Guide 1. Thread the strap with the metal plate hanger through the spring metal button in the top side of the front edge of the booster seat. The metal hanger plate should come out from underneath the seat, and the other end comes out through the front of the booster seat to use as the one pull adjustment end. 2. Take the strap with the shoulder pads attached at either end, and thread one pad through the harness slot for the required shoulder height you need, through the seat pad, seat cover and the slots in the shell. And thread the other shoulder pad in through the back so the front and back appear like in the images. 3. Next you take the long strap, pass this through one of the 2 gaps in the booster seat and back up through the gap on other side. Then take the 2 ends, thread them through the shoulder pads and then through the same holes you have passed the shoulder pads and they should hang down the back like the 3rd image above. 4. Insert these harness ends into the metal hanger plate at the back which comes out from the bottom of the booster seat. Ensure they are locked into position and test by pulling. 5. The buckle has a metal retaining plate attached which threads through the slot near the front of the booster seat (through the cover and the shell) as illustrated. Buckle up the harness as normal and check it all works and holds as it should do. © © © © © © Safety Warnings Please read thoroughly before commencing installation, as an incorrect installation could be dangerous. Parents should not under any circumstances use this child restraint on a passenger seat equipped with an airbag. The child seat must only be installed in the forward facing position. It is most important that the seat belt is correctly routed and the child seat tightened down on the upholstery as firmly as possible to ensure maximum protection. It is dangerous to make any alterations or additions to the car seat without the approval of Kiddu, and it is dangerous not to follow the installation instructions provided by Kiddu. Kiddu recommends that this car seat must not be used when it has been subjected to the violent stresses in a motor vehicle accident. Do not leave the child in their child restraint unattended. Ensure that no part of the seat or seat belt is trapped in a door or a folding seat. If your car has a folding rear seat, ensure that it is correctly latched in its upright position. This car seat is provided with a fabric cover. It should be kept away from sunlight as it may become too hot at times for the childs skin QO The safety belt buckle is not fully tamper proof and therefore your child should be persuaded to never play with it. It is important to ensure that the lap strap is worn low down as this secures the pelvis. The rigid items and plastic parts of a child restraint must be located and installed so that they are not liable, during everyday use of the vehicle, to become trapped by a movable seat or in a door of the vehicle. Only suitable if the approved vehicles are fitted with 3 point safety belts approved to UN/ECE R16 or other equivalent standards. The child restraint must not be used without the cover. The seat cover, should not be replaced with anything other than the one recommended by the manufacturer as the cover constitutes an integral part of the restraint perfor- mance. Kiddu can only guarantee the seat when the original owner uses it. Remove the headrest of the passenger seat being used if it causes an obstruction for proper installation of the seat, but do not forget to refit the headrest after use. When the child seat is not in use, it is recommended that it is fastened into the car with a seat belt to avoid it being thrown in the event of an accident. Q In an emergency your child can be released quickly by pressing the red button on the seat belt buckle. © Store this child seat in a safe place when it is not being used. Avoid placing objects on top of it. © If you travel with passengers using both the front and rear passenger seats, the lighter occupants should be in the rear and the heavier occupants in the front of the vehicle. 9 Do not allow your child seat to come into contact with corrosive substances e.g. battery acid.
