The restraint did not arrive fully assembled. The restraint did not arrive prepared for the smallest occupant. A head hugger or body pillow covers the harness slots. The harness must be rethreaded to adjust height for the child's growth. 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. When disassembled for cleaning, mandatory parts of the restraint become detached and could be misplaced.
