Precautions on booster seats

If a booster seat and seat belt are not used WARNING

► Make sure the shoulder belt is not behind the child or under the childs arm.
► A booster seat must only be installed in a seating position that has a lap/ shoulder belt.

If the seatback is lower than the center of the childs ears, a high back booster seat 2 should be used.
