Children up to about 12 years of age weighing between 15 and 36 kg but less than 1.5 metres tall are best protected by a child safety seat in conjunction with the three-point seat belts ⇒ fig. 228 and ⇒ fig. 229.
Follow the manufacturer's instructions and observe any statutory requirements when installing and using child restraints, “Important safety notes for using child safety seats”.
The diagonal part of the belt should be positioned roughly over the centre of the shoulder and fit closely against the upper part of the body. It must never be allowed to run across the neck. The lap part of the belt should fit closely over the hips. It must not be positioned over the stomach. Pull the belt tight if necessary to take up any slack.
We recommend that you fit child safety seats with backrests.
