|Evaluation of Labels||
On the labels, the tether is shown but not labeled with each mode of installation. There is not a picture of a child properly restrained in the CRS on the labeling. No additional sizing information is given on the label. No indication of correct harness height is given. The belt path is labeled on one side only. 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.
|Evaluation of Instructions||
In the instructions, the tether is shown but not labeled with each mode of installation. The instruction manual storage is difficult to find and/or use while the child restraint is installed. No full picture exists of a properly restrained child in the child restraint in the owner's manual. 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.
|Securing the Child||
The restraint did not arrive fully assembled. The harness height may be difficult to adjust. Multiple actions are required to convert the seat to this mode of use; the caregiver must read the instructions. The harness must be taken out and rethreaded to disassemble the seat for cleaning. Hand tools are required to disassemble the seat for cleaning. When disassembled for cleaning, mandatory parts of the restraint become detached and could be misplaced.
The restraint is equipped with hook-like LATCH attachments which may require twisting to remove from the vehicle. No storage area exists for the LATCH attachments and/or the tether.
