How to Install a Child Seat

FOR LARGER KIDS: If the child is over 35lbs, use the belt and shoulder harness as you would an adult and simply extend the belt over the seat. You do not need to install any of the built in straps.


SMALLER CHILDREN (UNDER 35 lbs):
1) If your child is under 35lbs get the locking clip that came with the seat if you have a seat with a shoulder harness attached. Otherwise, it isn't necessary. Pull the shoulder harness down to the base of the waste strap and then use the locking clip to bind it into place.

2) For a smaller child you will need to install the built in straps like so.




3. Set the seat in place running the waist strap through the back of the seat and clipping it on the other side.

You should see a harness strap over each shoulder that goes though the shell, behind the seat, and connects to a metal splitter plate.



The front of the harnesses (2) extend down though the buckle tongues then into the hip area of the seat.



There is a crotch strap that comes out of the shell where the child\'s crotch is. The buckle is attached to this strap.



There will be a LATCH (Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children) strap that goes through one of two belt paths. If used, this strap must go though the proper belt path.



Finally, there is a top tether strap the comes from the back of the seat - near the top - that will attach to the tether anchor in your car (see your car owner\'s manual)





My suggestion to you is to purchase a new seat. The protection of your child is most important.
