kiddy discovery pro – Operation Manual
1. Introduction
We’re happy that you have decided on the kiddy discovery pro as your
choice for a child restraint system.
The kiddy discovery pro is the latest innovative product in our Pro product
line. Our especially energy-absorbent honeycomb© material offers the
greatest possible safety in the event of frontal as well as side impact.
To gain the most comprehensive protection for your child, the kiddy
discovery pro must be used exactly as described in this manual.
2. Suitability
The kiddy discovery pro has been tested and licensed according to the latest
version of the ECE44-04 licensing specifications and possesses the design
certification for the “universal” class of products. This means that the kiddy
discovery pro is suitable for use in all types of vehicles in any seat with a
three-point restraint compliant with ECE 16 or comparable specifications.
The kiddy discovery pro child restraint system is suitable for weight classes
II to III, i.e. for children weighing between 15 and 36 kg (approximately 4
years to 12 years of age) or up to height of 150 cm.
For use in your vehicle, please follow manufacturer recommendations in your
owners manual, or contact your dealership.

3. General safety tips
Please thoroughly read the entire instruction manual before installing
the child restraint system for the first time. Improper installation can
endanger the life of your child.
Most injuries, caused by mere thoughtlessness, are
easily avoided.
Use the child restraint system only for weight classes II to III
(from 15 kg up to 36 kg maximum).
Check to make sure the child restraint system is properly adjusted to
the size of your child prior to travel. Do not attempt to make
adjustments during travel.
Make sure that all parts are properly locked in place.
Always secure the child restraint system with your vehicle’s own
three-point restraint system.
Make sure that none of the child restraint system’s parts are caught
in doors or reclining seats.
In vans and minivans it is particularly important to ensure that the
child restraint system is installed in an easily accessible seat in the
event that third-party rescue is required.
The seatbelt should never be loose. During an accident strain on the
body from a loose seatbelt is significantly higher than from a tight
seatbelt. Make sure the seat belt buckle is properly fastened.
Never leave your child unattended in the child restraint system.

Do not place any heavy items on the rear window shelf; these can
become dangerous projectiles in an accident.
Even when transporting the child restraint system in your car
unoccupied, always secure it in the prescribed fashion with your
vehicle’s three-point restraint.
Making any modifications to the child restraint system is not
permitted. Doing so nullifies or impairs its effectiveness in protection.
If difficulties arise, please consult your dealer or the manufacturer.
Keep the child restraint system out of direct sunlight to prevent
uncomfortable heating of the surface.
The child restraint system may be used only in seats with three-point
restraints compliant with ECE 16 or comparable specifications.
Permit your child to take breaks during longer trips, and be sure that
she does not step out of the vehicle into traffic unattended. Always
use the child safety locks in your vehicles passenger doors, if
available.
Make sure that the child safety system was installed in the vehicle
according to this manual.
Do not use the child restraint system any further if parts have been
damaged or loosened after an accident (with an impact speed greater
than 10 km/h) or through other causes.
Use only the seatbelt configuration prescribed by the manufacturer.

4. Seating position and adjustment
Please familiarise yourself thoroughly with the use of child restraint systems
as described in your vehicle’s owners manual.
The kiddy discovery pro child restraint system can be installed in vehicles in
any seat that uses a three-point restraint system.
The kiddy discovery pro can also be used in rear-facing car seats that are
equipped with a three-point restraint system.
If installation is prevented by a headrest, it must be set at the highest
position or removed.
The kiddy discovery pro’s adjustable seatback ensures that it can rest
securely against the car seatback.
Position the vehicle’s reclining seatbacks accordingly.
5. Adjustments
5.1 Adjusting the head and shoulder support
The kiddy discovery pro provides optimum adaptation to the size of your
child by means of its innovative adjustment system. The headrest and shoul-
der supports are adjusted in one movement.
The correct headrest setting is achieved when the head of your child lies at
the midline of the headrest.

To adjust the head and shoulder supports,
grasp the yellow height adjustment handle on
the back of the headrest and pull it out
gently, while simultaneously raising or
lowering the headrest to the desired height
(Fig. 1).
The shoulder supports automatically move
with the headrest in the desired direction.
After adjusting the height, lock the headrest
again in the nearest available position.
You can check to see that the headrest is firmly locked in place by gently
pressing down on it.
5.2 Adjusting the seat bottom (thigh support)
You can achieve significantly better seating comfort for your child by
adjusting the thigh support, which can be set in four positions (Fig. 2).
Step 1: Lift up gently on the thigh support
extension.
Step 2: Pull the extension out to the desired
position and lock it into place.

5.3 Adjustment and use of the recline position
In order to adjsut the recline position, unlock
the belt system and fold back the support
bracket until it lies evenly against the seat
back of the car seat. Secure your child now
(Point 6).
The recline position may be used
only for children with a weight up to
18kg.
6. In-vehicle installation for Age Groups II & III
Position your kiddy in your vehicle seat as
described in Section 4.
Check to see whether your kiddy is adjusted
to the size of your child (Section 5).
Open the belt guide on the side across from
the belt buckle by pressing the hook back
(step 1) and then down to open (step 2).
Pull the seatbelt out.
Thread the shoulder belt between the
headrest and the shoulder support, and place
it in the belt guide.

Now close the belt guide by pressing it up into
the lock (step 1).
Check to see that whether the belt guide is
properly closed (locked in place).
Place the lap belt on side across from the belt
buckle under the seat’s armrest (step 1).
Then pull the buckle tongue under the
armrest on the belt buckle side and fasten it
with a noticeable "click."
Make sure that the belts are not twisted and
lie snugly along the body of your child. Also
check that the belt buckle is correctly
positioned.
Now tighten lap belt (step 1) and then the
diagonal belt (step 2) in the direction of the
automatic belt ratchet.

Monitor the belts periodically.
For safety reasons, the belt guide cannot be opened in the lowest
headrest positions. If your child is relatively small and heavier than 15 kg, set
the headrest in one of the higher positions for buckling, then readjust it to the
size of your child (be sure to observe Section 5.1). Don’t forget to tighten the
belt system.
7. Removing and replacing the covers
Never use your kiddy without its original covers. The covers are part
of the safety concept.
7.1 Removing the headrest and seatback cover
The headrest and seatback cover are sewn together as a single unit.
Slide the adjustable headrest up to the highest position.
Free the cover around the yellow height adjustment handle. Pull the cover off
the headrest from the back toward the front.
7.2 Removing the shoulder support covers
Slide the adjustable headrest down to the lowest position. Unsnap the
buttons on the back sides of the shoulder supports. Now you can pull the
covers off the shoulder supports from the bottom to the top.

7.3 Removing the seat covers
The cover for the thigh support is fastened with an elastic band. You can
remove it by pulling up on it carefully.
To be able to remove the seat cover, open the lock on the underside of the
seat. Then undo the ties and Velcro fasteners under the thigh support.
Pull the straps between the seatback and seat up. Now the seat cover can
be removed.
7.4 Replacing the covers
To replace the covers, follow the steps for removing the covers in reverse
order (see Sections 7.1 – 7.3).
8. Instructions for care
8.1 Cleaning the covers
The covers are an essential component of the safety concept. Therefore, you
should use only original covers from the manufacturer. If you require
replacement covers, you can order them from the manufacturer. The cover
is machine washable warm in the delicates cycle. Do not spin or put into the
dryer.
8.2 Cleaning plastic parts
The plastic parts can be cleaned with a mild cleanser or with a damp cloth.
Never use stringent cleansing agents (e.g. solvents).

9. Steps to take after an accident
After an accident with an impact speed greater than 10 km/h, the child
restraint system must be sent back to the manufacturer without fail, to be
checked for possible damages and replaced at no charge if deemed
necessary.
10. Warranty
For the kiddy discovery pro we extend a warranty against defects in
materials and workmanship for up to two years. The warranty period begins
