Important safety information

WARNING
Observe "Important safety notes"

WARNING
Always lock the rear seat backrests in their upright position when the rear seats are occupied by passengers. Lock the rear seat backrests in their upright position before installing the Top Tether straps or when the cargo compartment is not in use. Make sure that rear seat backrests are secured properly by pushing and pulling on the seat backrests.

If the seat backrest is not locked properly, the seat backrest could fold forward. The child restraint system is no longer supported properly or held in position and can no longer fulfill its function. This could cause serious or even fatal injuries.

Top Tether facilitates an additional attachment point between the LATCH-type (ISOFIX) child seat mount child restraint system and the rear bench seat. This can further reduce the risk of injury.
