|Manufacturer / Model Name||Safety 1st Chart Air 65|
|Model Number / Manufacture Date||CC076-BMR / Mar 21, 2012|
|Weight / Height||22lb - 65lb / 34" - 52"|
|Evaluation of Labels||
There is not a picture of a child properly restrained in the CRS on the labeling. The tether is not labeled in the illustrations depicting acceptable modes of installation. No indication of correct harness height is given on the labels. Labels do not illustrate how to remove and prepare LATCH attachments for use.
|Evaluation of Instructions||
The manual cannot be accessed while the restraint is installed in this mode. The instruction manual storage may be difficult to find. No full picture exists of a properly restrained child in the restraint in the owner's manual. The LATCH attachments and tether 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 in the shell from being easily visible. The harness must be rethreaded to adjust height for the child's growth. Multiple actions are required to convert the seat to this mode of use, but the operations are simple. The LATCH belt must be rerouted to convert the restraint to this mode of use from another mode. The harness must be taken out and rethreaded when cleaning the restraint. When disassembled for cleaning, mandatory parts of the restraint become detached and could be misplaced.
The restraint is equipped with hook-style LATCH attachments which may require twisting to remove from the vehicle. The LATCH attachment and/or tether storage area is not clearly labeled.
