The harness clip is not labeled to indicate its correct placement. There is a head hugger or body pillow blocking the harness slots in the shell from being easily visible. The harness must be rethreaded to adjust height for the child's growth. The harness must be taken out and rethreaded when cleaning the car seat.
The car seat is equipped with hook-style LATCH attachments which may require twisting to remove from the lower anchors in the vehicle. There is no labeling to indicate which position the carrier handle should be in while the vehicle is in motion. The belt positioning feature is simple to use, but the caregiver should refer to the owner's manual.
