    Tether Strap Information

    Your vehicle owners manual will provide you with thetether strap anchorage information and location.Forolder vehicles with no tether anchorage informationplease contact your dealer or the vehicle manufacturerfor location of anchor brackets and installation.

    Universal Anchorage System (UAS)

    Information

    As of September 1, 2002,Universal Anchorage Systemswere required to be installed on child restraint systems.Vehicles built after this date are required to have anchorbrackets/bars built into the vehicle seat.The UASallowsfor easier installation of child restraint systems as thevehicle seat belt does not have to be used.

    In the United States the term LATCH is used insteadof UAS.UASand LATCH mean the same thing.

    Your vehicle owners manual provides information onthe UASbrackets installed in the vehicle.The manualalso provides additional information to help youcorrectly install a restraint system that has UAS.

    If your vehicle is not equipped with UAS, installing thechild restraint with the seat belt is just as secure.

    Note: UASbrackets cannot be installed in oldervehicles.

    Storing Your Child Restraint andBooster Seat

    To protect your child restraint and booster seat, storein the house,not in the garage or attic. The hot andcold temperatures can harm the plastic shell and/or theharness system if stored for a long period of time.

    Vehicle Seat Belt

    A child restraint and booster seat must be securelyattached in a vehicle.

    Most passenger vehicles,vans and trucks have seat beltsthat firmly lock around the child restraint system.

    Some vehicle seat belts require a locking clip to attachthe child restraint securely.

    Your vehicle owners manual best describes the use of achild restraint and booster seat with the vehicles seatbelt.

    Check the vehicle owners manual for the correct use ofyour seat belt with a child restraint and booster seat.

    WARNINGIn very few vehicles, the child restraint cannot

    be properly installed because of the type ofseat belt system,air bag system and/or lack oflocation to anchor the tether strap. Alwaysread and follow the vehicle owners manualinstructions for child restraint use.

    !

    General Use

    To help protect your vehicle seats upholstery fromdamage,use a car seat mat or a towel underneath andbehind child restraint.
