|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. No illustration is given on the labels to show the caregiver how to prepare LATCH attachments for use.
|Evaluation of Instructions||
In the instructions, the tether is shown but not labeled with each mode of installation. In the manual, there are no instructions describing how to remove LATCH attachments from storage. 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.
|Securing the Child||
The harness clip is not labeled with placement instructions. 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.
