Thank you for choosing the Fisher-Price

Futura 20/60 Car Seat... Before you use this car seat, please take time to read and under- stand this manual completely... DO NOT allow others to use this car seat until they understand these instructions for proper use... Your childs safety depends on you! To reduce injuries in a crash, stricter Federal safety regulations require all forward-facing car seats, such as this one, to meet certain standards to minimize forward motion... Most other car seats require a tether strap to meet these standards, but the Futura 20/60 Car Seat meets these standards without an added tether strap... No one can predict when the use of a car seat will prevent injury or death... When this car seat is used properly, it will reduce the risk of injury in a sudden stop or crash...

Selecting a Vehicle Seating Location for Your Car Seat

Accident statistics show that children are safer when restrained properly in rear vehicle seating locations than in front seating locations... Only use the front seat when no acceptable rear seating location is avail- able... If the front seating location is equipped with an airbag but must be used, adjust the vehicle seat as far back from the dashboard as possible... Please refer to your vehicle owners manual regarding front seat child restraint use...
