Safety information

Warning If the upper retaining strap is incorrectly used for the child restraint system, the protective effect can be reduced. There is a risk of injury.

Make sure that the upper retaining strap does not run over sharp edges and is not twisted as it passes the upper anchor.

Warning If the rear backrest is not locked, the protective effect of the child restraint system is limited or there is none. In certain situations, for instance braking maneuvers or in case of an accident, the rear backrest can fold forward. There is a risk of injuries or danger to life. Make sure that the rear backrests are locked.
