|Evaluation of Labels||
Labels do not illustrate how to prepare LATCH attachments for use. LATCH illustrations are unclear.
|Evaluation of Instructions||
The manual was attached to the restraint in a hard-to-find location when the restraint was removed from its packaging. The manual storage is difficult to find and use. In the manual, there is no illustration of the child in the restraint. Additional sizing information is not provided in the manual. 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||
There is a head hugger or body pillow blocking the harness slots from being easily visible. The harness must be rethread for child's growth. When disassembling for cleaning, mandatory pieces to the restraint must be removed and could be misplaced.
It may be possible for the caregiver to mistakenly think that the seat is secured to the base. The carrier may appear to be securely installed to the base when it is not. There is no angle feedback device available. Push-button-style connectors are used as LATCH attachments. There is no labeling to indicate which position the carrier handle should be in while the vehicle is in motion.
