Do not place any padding, noodles or other objects behind or
under the child safety seat.
Thick padding must NOT be put under or behind the child.
- Be sure to
place the safety belt or LATCH strap through the correct
belt path. The forward-facing belt path is usually found
near the back of the child safety seat. Review the
instruction manual for further information.
NOTE: ALWAYS read and follow the child safety seat
instructions and the vehicle owner’s manual.
Seat Options For Forward-Facing Children
NOTE: Most toddlers and pre-schoolers (up to age 4) are not big enough or old enough for a belt-positioning booster seat. They need a full harness for upper body protection and to hold them in their seats. A full harness should be used as long as possible. Follow the instruction manual on harness weight limits.
For children 40 pounds or more, who are too young or too active to sit still in a booster seat, or if a vehicle has lap only safety belts, use child restraints labeled for use over 40 pounds.
The back seat is the SAFEST place in the vehicle to install child safety seats.
