|Evaluation of Labels||
Labels do not explain the use of LATCH.
|Evaluation of Instructions||
The manual was not attached to the car seat and was found loose in the packaging. The instruction manual storage may be difficult to find.
|Securing the Child||
The harness clip is not labeled with placement instructions. The LATCH belt must be rerouted to convert the car seat to this mode of use from forward-facing mode. When disassembled for cleaning, mandatory parts of the car seat may 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. LATCH attachments have buttons to depress for removal. When either the vehicle belt or LATCH belt is routed through the rear-facing belt path, it may interfere with the crotch strap.
