|Evaluation of Labels||
Sizing information is not directly next to the illustration on the label. There is no chest harness clip in the illustration on the label. Labels do not explain the use of LATCH. Labels were already peeling when the restraint was removed from the box.
|Evaluation of Instructions||
The frontal airbag warning is buried within text and is not prominently displayed separate from other warnings. In the manual, the section which details vehicle seat belt types does not provide complete information. The user must read text to route seatbelts correctly. The LATCH attachments arrive stored, and the owner's manual does not describe how to remove them from storage prior to first use.
|Securing the Child||
The restraint was not set for the smallest possible occupant. The harness clip is not labeled to indicate its correct placement. There are no pictures on the labels to describe how to convert this restraint to rear-facing mode. Multiple actions are required to convert the seat to the rear-facing mode; these must be followed in the manual.
It may be uncomfortable for larger hands to route the seat belt or LATCH belt through the belt path. Interference is possible between a seat component and the belt routing path. There are not three levels of built-in recline available. Push-button-style connectors are used as LATCH attachments. The LATCH storage area is not labeled.
