Subaru Forester: Child restraint systems / Installing a booster seat

Subaru Forester. Installing a booster seat

  1. If the booster seat makes contact with the head restraint of the rear seating position where the booster seat is to be installed, raise the head restraint to the extended position. If the booster seat still makes contact, remove the head restraint. For details, refer to “Head restraints”.
  2. For models with rear seat reclining mechanism, adjust the seatback to the upright position.

    CAUTION

    Store the head restraint that has been removed in the cargo area. Do not place the head restraint in the passenger compartment to prevent it from being thrown around in the passenger compartment in a sudden stop or a sharp turn.

  3. Place the booster seat in the rear seating position and sit the child on it. The child should sit well back on the booster seat.
  4. Run the lap and shoulder belt through or around the booster seat and the child following the instructions provided by its manufacturer.
  5. Insert the tongue plate into the buckle until you hear a click. Take care not to twist the seatbelt.

    Make sure the shoulder belt is positioned across the center of child’s shoulder and that the lap belt is positioned as low as possible on the child’s hips.

  6. To remove the booster seat, press the release button on the seatbelt buckle and allow the belt to retract.

WARNING

  • Never use a belt that is twisted or reversed. In an accident, this can increase the risk or severity of injury to the child.
  • Never place the shoulder belt under the child’s arm or behind the child’s back. If an accident occurs, this can increase the risk or severity of injury to the child.
  • The seatbelt should fit snugly in order to provide full restraint. Loose fitting belts are not as effective in preventing or reducing injury.
  • Place the lap belt as low as possible on the child’s hips. High-positioned lap belt will increase the risk of sliding under the lap belt and of the lap belt sliding up over the abdomen, and both can result in serious internal injury or death.
  • Make sure the shoulder belt is positioned across the center of child’s shoulder. Placing the shoulder belt over the neck may result in neck injury during sudden braking or in a collision.
