WARNING

(1) Before putting the child in the restraint, be absolutely sure to make the conversion of the retractor from the ELR mode to the ALR mode. By doing so, the child restraint system is always tightly secured to the seat by the automatic lock. If the conversion to ALR is not made, the child restraint system could move forward in the event of sudden braking or an accident, seriously injuring the child or other occupants.
(2) If a person wearing the seat belt moves one’s upper body significantly such that the belt completely unwinds, the retractor may switch to its ALR mode and lock, thus preventing further movement. If this happens, the person should switch the retractor back to its ELR mode by taking off the seat belt and fully rewinding it. The person should then wear the seat belt again.
