|Securing the Child||
The car seat was not set for the smallest possible occupant. There are no illustrations on the car seat showing how to convert this car seat to this mode of use. 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, and loose parts may be generated during the process.
It may be uncomfortable for larger hands to route the seat belt or LATCH belt through the belt path. The user may have to move the padding to properly route the seat belt. Interference is possible between a seat component and the belt path. A printed/molded line is present on the car seat that must be leveled to the ground. There are less than 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. There is no dedicated area in which to store LATCH attachments.
