|Evaluation of Labels||
Harness slots are not labeled to indicate which may be used in the rear-facing mode and which may be used in the forward-facing mode.
|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.
|Securing the Child||
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. When disassembled for cleaning, mandatory parts of the restraint become detached and could be misplaced.
Interference is possible between a seat component and the seat belt/LATCH belt. 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.
