6.1 Positioning Harness Straps
FAILURE TO PROPERLY ADJUST THE HARNESS STRAPS
FOR YOUR CHILD INCREASES THE RISK OF SERIOUS
INJURY OR DEATH IN THE EVENT OF A SHARP TURN,
SUDDEN STOP OR CRASH.
The harness straps must be properly
adjusted to fit your child according to the following instructions.
1. Remove infant restraint from base and rotate handle down to
sitting position. See “3.3 Removing and Attaching Base” and
“3.4 Adjusting Handle”, p. 13.
2. Place child in infant restraint as shown
3. Determine which pair of harness slots are even
with or just below your child’s shoulders
DO NOT use upper harness slots if they
are above your child’s shoulders. They
will not hold a small child securely in a
sudden stop or crash.
4. If the harness straps must be adjusted:
remove child from infant restraint and follow
directions for your type of harness system:
6.1.1 3-Point Harness - p. 28
6.1.2 5-Point Harness - p. 29
Use harness slots
even with or just below
