|Evaluation of Labels||
Belt path labeling is not directly next to its corresponding path. There is not a picture of a child properly restrained in the CRS on the labeling. Additional sizing information is not shown in an illustration and is given in text form only. Labels do not explain the use of LATCH. No illustration is given on the labels to show the caregiver how to prepare LATCH attachments for use. The labels do not remind the caregiver to tighten the LATCH belt. No instructions are given on the labels for the use of the tether.
|Evaluation of Instructions||
In the manual, additional sizing information is given in text only. The instruction manual storage is difficult to find and/or use while the child restraint is installed. The warning that the safest place for children is the rear seat is located among other unrelated warnings in a bulleted list. The section describing vehicle seat belt types is incomplete and may be missing important information. The user must read text to route the LATCH belt properly.
|Securing the Child||
The harness clip is not labeled with placement instructions. Multiple actions are required to convert the seat to this mode of use; the caregiver must read the instructions.
The belt path may not comfortably accommodate a larger hand. Interference is possible between a seat component and the seat belt/LATCH belt. The child restraint is equipped with push-button LATCH connectors. The LATCH attachment and/or tether storage area is not clearly labeled.
