Important special steps when installing a child restraint with LATCH/UCRA lower universal anchorages or with the vehicle safety belt.

You must take special precautions when installing a child restraint with the vehicle safety belt or with LATCH/UCRA lower universal anchorages behind the front passenger seat or behind the driver seat. Always route the unused center seat safety belt and the unused safety belt for the seating position where the LATCH/UCRA child restraint is being installed around the rear head restraint behind the child restraint to help prevent a child from playing with the unused belt and becoming entangled in it ⇒ Fig. 74 .

When a child safety seat is secured on the rear bench, adjust the position of the front seat to provide the child with sufficient space. Therefore, adjust the front seat to the size of the child safety seat and the child. Consider the proper seating position of the passenger ⇒ Adjusting the seating position .

Secure unused safety belts on the rear seat!

If a child safety seat is used on the rear bench, especially with LATCH/UCRA universal anchorages, the unused safety belts must be secured so that the child in the child restraint cannot reach them ⇒ .

  • Guide the safety belt webbing behind the head restraint of the adjacent seat ⇒ Fig. 74 . When doing so, do not engage the switchable locking feature! You should not hear a clicking sound when winding up the safety belt.
  • Let the belt retractor wind up the safety belt webbing.

Warning

A child in a child restraint installed with the LATCH/UCRA lower universal anchorages or with the standard safety belt on the rear seat may play with unused rear seat safety belts and become entangled resulting in serious personal injury and even death.
  • Always secure unused rear seat safety belts out of the reach of children in child seats such as by properly routing them around the head restraint for the seating position where the child restraint is installed.
  • Never activate the switchable locking retractor when routing the safety belts around the head restraints.
  • Never let anyone sit at the center rear seating position if the center rear safety belt has been routed around a rear head restraint.
  • Always secure unused lockable safety belts on the rear bench.

Note

  • Be careful not to activate the switchable locking retractor when routing the center safety belt around the head restraint. Only pull the unused center safety belt out far enough to allow you to route the belt around the head restraint.
  • When installing a child restraint, be careful not to get the belt caught in the structure of the child seat and become damaged, especially when the switchable locking feature has been activated.
