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.

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. 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. 3.0 Safety 3.5 About this Safety Seat • This Safety Seat is constructed of plastic that can deform over time if left with any object in the seat while stored.

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.

****** Page 6 ****** 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. 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 carrien – DO NOT attach strings to toys. – DO NOT place the carrier near a window where cords from blinds or drapes can strangle a child. A 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. o
****** Page 7 ****** 4.0 Location SELECTING THE BEST LOCATION FOR THE SAFETY SEAT A 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 atl -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. • 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 A WARNING DO NOT place rear-facing child seat on front seat with air bag. DEATH OR SERIOUS INJURY can occur. The back seat is the safest place for 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 vehicle 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.
****** Page 8 ****** 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 fomard 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. O o 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 4.0 Location seat belts systems that are not safe for use with the Safety 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. A 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.
****** Page 9 ****** 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 O Fig. o Fig. 15 2 Fig. 15-3 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). • 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 Fig. 16-1 Fig. 16-2 location that has a more suitable seat belt system as described in the section following. You may also contact your vehicle’s manufacturer to inquire about installing a seat belt system that is adequate to restrain a Safety Seat.
****** Page 10 ****** 4.0 Location 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. • Alap 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). Fig. 17 1 • Alap 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). 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 4.0 Location 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). Fig. 18-1 Fig. 18-2 Fig. 18-3
