If a child using the fit inlay and is experiencing discomfort around his/her legs due to the harness being too tight or it is difficult to buckle the harness, the fit inlay can be removed as long as the following requirements are met. Please remove the fit inlay back cushion/side wings first and assess before removing the inlay completely.
- The child is in the rear-facing position and weighs under 25 lbs
- The active support headrest and integrated harness can be positioned at the child’s shoulder to ensure proper fit of the harness. (The headrest can lightly touch the shoulder and allow, at most, a fingertip of space between the child’s shoulders and headrest.)
- The harness can be tightened properly. We recommend conducting the ‘pinch test’ at the child’s shoulders. To do this, pinch harness webbing at the child’s shoulders (under harness pads). If you can pinch webbing, then the harness is too loose and should be tightened.
- Remove the harness pads to allow for a tight installation of the harness.
