that proper installation is not possible. In
this case, try another seat.
Vehicle seat travelling advice
In order to maximise the protection that
the child car seat can give your child,
please adjust the harness so that it fits
snugly and make sure that the child car
seat is fitted correctly.
Research shows that correct installation
is the most important factor in child car
seat safety.
Please take the time to read the

This child car seat is designed for
use for children whose weight is
13kg or less and whose heights are
66cm (26 inches) or less.
This child car seat must only be
used in a rear facing position,
and must NEVER be used forward
facing. For maximum protection,
the centre rear seat position (if
it is fitted with an adult 3-point
seatbelt) is recommended as the
safest position in most vehicles for
installing an child car seat. (Only
use the vehicle’s rear centre seat
if the vehicle seat is fitted with a
3-point adult belt).
Do not use your child car seat on a
vehicle seat with lap belts only.
Your child car seat should not be
purchased or sold as a second

Remove child out of the car as first
priority in an accident.
While travelling it is recommended
that any luggage or other objects
liable to cause injuries in the event
of a collision shall be properly
Your child car seat should be
securely belted to the vehicle,

in a crash an unsecured child car
seat may injure other passengers.
Please take a rest every two hours

the child car seat.
Please check the child car seat
condition if you are going to travel
a long distance with a child.
Please put all excess luggage
into the boot of your car if you
are going to travel with a baby,
because loose items may hurt a
baby when travelling on unstable
roads or because they move
suddenly when braking.
Please always check the child car
seat before you place a baby
into it.
Please get in touch with the dealer
if anything breaks on the child
car seat. Only the manufacturer
or an authorised agent may do
repairs. DO NOT try and fix the
child car seat by yourself. It might
be damaged or cause more
Safety comes first

when unpacking the child car
NEVER place the child car seat on
a seat where an air bag is active.
Do not modify the child car seat.
