Safety information

Warning
If the upper retaining strap is incorrectly used for the child restraint system, the protective effect is 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 injury or danger to life. Make sure that the rear backrests are locked.

Warning
The attachment points for child restraint systems in the vehicle are intended for attaching child restraint systems only. When other objects are mounted, the attachment points can be damaged. There is a risk of injury or risk of damage to property. Attach only child restraint systems at the corresponding attachment points.
