On the labels, the tether is shown but not labeled with each mode of installation. Labels do not explain the use of LATCH. No instructions are given on the labels for the use of the tether.
Evaluation of Instructions 5 stars
The manual storage location may be difficult to find. In the manual, the user may need to read the text in order to route the LATCH belt.
Securing the Child 2 stars
The harness clip is not labeled to indicate its correct placement. The harness must be rethreaded to adjust height for the child's growth. Multiple actions are required to convert the seat to this mode of use; these must be followed in the manual. When disassembled for cleaning, mandatory parts of the restraint may become detached and could be misplaced.
Installation Features 3 stars
Interference is possible between a seat component and the belt routing system. The belt positioning feature is simple to use, but the caregiver may need to consult the owner's manual for more information. LATCH attachments have buttons to depress for removal.
