PLACING CHILD IN CHILD RESTRAINT
(continued)
1. Place child in child restraint with child’s
back flat against back of child restraint.
2. Place harness straps over child’s
shoulders and insert tongue(s) into
buckle.
Pull up on tongue(s) to be sure they are
locked.
3. Close chest clip:
Position chest clip at arm pit level.
4. Adjust harness straps to be snug. A
snug strap should not allow any slack. It
lies in a relatively straight line without
sagging. It does not press on the child’s
flesh or push the child’s body into an
unnatural position. (fig. a)
Check that harness straps on chest and
thighs are snug.
5. A rolled towel can be used on each side
to support small children (fig. b). Be
sure towels do not interfere with harness
system. Towels should NOT be placed
under child.
