Illustration of the child in the car seat is not located directly next to the sizing information. The warning on the label does not explicitly state that a lap-only belt may not be used.
|Evaluation of Instructions||
No full picture exists of a properly restrained child in the car seat in the owner's manual. No additional sizing information is given in the owner's manual.
|Securing the Child||
Harness slots in the pad and in the shell are misaligned or small. The harness must be rethreaded to adjust height for the child's growth. The LATCH belt must be rerouted to convert the car seat to this mode of use from another mode. The harness must be taken out and rethreaded when cleaning the car seat. When disassembled for cleaning, mandatory parts of the car seat become detached and could be misplaced.
A printed/molded line is present on the car seat that must be leveled to the ground. There are not three levels of built-in recline available. The car seat is equipped with hook-style LATCH attachments which may require twisting to remove from the lower anchors in the vehicle. The LATCH storage area is not clearly labeled.
