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...

ALWAYS secure this car seat with your vehicle belt system exactly as described in this manual... Refer also to your vehicle owners manual for specific information on your vehicle belt system and specific instructions on how to install a car seat in your vehicle... NEVER leave an unsecured car seat in your vehicle... If left unsecured, even when not occupied, the car seat could injure other occupants in a sudden stop or crash...

Page 7

NEVER dress your child in clothing that interferes with posi- tioning the crotch strap between your childs legs... If the crotch strap is not positioned between your childs legs, your child could eject from the car seat in a crash... NEVER allow the shoulder straps to be loose around your child... If the shoulder straps are not snug against your child, your child will not be properly restrained... NEVER use the car seat after it is involved in a crash... A crash can cause damage to the car seat that you cannot see...

Page 8

Adult assembly is required to attach the pad, plastic grommets and retainers to the car seat shell... A hammer and screwdriver, or other blunt ended tool (not included) are needed for assembly... Please refer to page 16 for assembly instructions...

Page 9

Fisher-Price recommends that child restraints be replaced after eight years to provide the best assurance that the child restraint is: in reliable working condition; well-suited for use in constantly changing automobile interior designs; and reasonably current in relation to Federal regulations... When you replace your car seat for any reason, make sure that it can no longer be used by another child by disposing of it properly...

Page 10

The safety features of this Fisher-Price car seat will reduce the risk of injury to your child in a crash; however, no car seat can prevent serious injury or death in all crashes...

Four-Point Restraint: This up-front harness adjuster is easily accessible, with four anchorage points to safely restrain your child in the car seat... Harness is used all the way up to 60 lbs...

Built-In Tray & Cup Holder: Remove the front overhead shield pad to reveal a tray! Cup holder snaps onto either side of the overhead shield... (Cup not included... ) Can also be used in vehicles that have only lap belts: A vehicle shoulder belt is not required to properly secure this car seat for children up to 60 lbs... This allows you to put your child in the center rear seating location...

Page 12

The illustrations on pages 12 and 13 show vehicle belt systems that can never be used with this car seat and vehicle belt systems that are acceptable for use... If you do not have a seating location with a usable vehicle belt system, DO NOT use this car seat... Contact your vehicle manufacturer... The vehicle manufacturer may be able to install a vehicle belt system that can restrain your child properly in this car seat... NEVER alter your vehicle belt system yourself...

Accident statistics show that children are safer when restrained properly in rear vehicle seating locations than in front seating locations...

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...
