There is not a full picture of a child properly restrained in the child seat directly next to sizing information on the labeling. The belt routing path is not completely labeled. The warning against using a lap belt only is in text only (not illustrated) on the labels.
Evaluation of Instructions 2 stars
The instruction manual was attached in a hard-to-find location when the car seat was removed from the packaging. The instruction manual storage may be difficult to use and cannot be accessed while the child is in the seat. No full picture exists of a properly restrained child next to sizing information in the instruction manual. The indication that the safest place in the vehicle for children is the rear seat is buried within a bulleted list. There is no warning against using a lap-only belt in the belt routing section of the instruction manual.
Securing the Child 5 stars
Installation Features 4 stars
The shoulder belt positioning device requires the use of two hands, but the action of positioning is simple.
Overall Ease of Use Rating 3 stars
