|Evaluation of Labels||
Additional sizing information is not shown in an illustration and is given in text form only. No illustration is given on the labels to show the caregiver how to prepare LATCH attachments for use. The labels do not remind the caregiver to tighten the LATCH belt. Labels do not show how to remove the tether. The caregiver must read text to properly use the tether. No instructions are given on the labels for the use of the tether.
|Evaluation of Instructions||
In the instructions, the tether is shown but not labeled with each mode of installation. The instruction manual storage is difficult to find and/or use while the child restraint is installed. Additional sizing information is given in text only in the owner's manual.
|Securing the Child||
The harness clip is not labeled with placement instructions. The restraint uses a 'puzzle buckle' that does not come with an intermediate method of holding the shoulder portions of the buckle tongues together. A head hugger or body pillow covers the harness slots. The harness must be rethread to adjust height for the child's growth. Multiple actions are required to convert the seat to this mode of use; the caregiver must read the instructions. The harness must be taken out and rethreaded to disassemble the seat for cleaning. When disassembled for cleaning, mandatory parts of the restraint become detached and could be misplaced.
Interference is possible between a seat component and the seat belt/LATCH belt. The restraint is equipped with hook-like LATCH attachments which may require twisting to remove from the vehicle. The LATCH attachment and/or tether storage area is not clearly labeled.
