kiddy energy pro user manual
1. Introduction
We are pleased that you have decided on the kiddy energy pro as your
choice for a child restraint system (A).
The kiddy energy pro is another innovative product in our pro range. Our
special energy-absorbent materials provide the greatest possible safety in
the event of a lateral impact. Your kiddy has been fitted with the original
impact shield for extensive protection in case of frontal impact.
To gain the most comprehensive protection for your child, the kiddy
energy pro must be used exactly as described in this manual.
The kiddy energy pro parts are indicated by a letter in brackets in this user
manual and are explained at the beginning under the point with the same
descriptor.
2. Suitability
The kiddy energy pro has been tested and licensed according to the latest
version of the ECE-R44/04 licensing specifications. It received the design
certification for the “universal” class of products. This means that the kiddy
energy 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 energy pro child restraint system is suitable for weight class I, i.e.
for children weighting between 9 and 18kg (approximately 9 months to
4 years of age).

3. General safety instructions
Please read the entire user manual thoroughly before installing the
child restraint system for the first time. Improper installation and use
can endanger the life of your child.
Most injuries, caused by mere thoughtlessness, are easily
avoided.
The child restraint system (A) must always be used with the impact
shield (O) belonging to it.
Use the seat cushions (F) belonging to it for children with a body
weight of approximately 9 - 13kg. Otherwise the seating position
(protection) would deteriorate in the event of an accident or collision.
Check to make sure the child restraint system (A) is properly adjusted
to the size of your child prior to each trip. Do not attempt to make
adjustments during travel.
Make sure that all parts are always properly locked in place.
Always secure the child restraint system (A) with your vehicle’s own
three-point restraint system.
Make sure that none of the child restraint system’s (A) parts are
caught in doors or reclining seats.
In vans and minivans it is particularly important to ensure that the
child restraint system (A) is installed in an easily accessible seat in
the event that third-party rescue is required.
Use the child restraint system (A) only for weight class I up to a
maximum of 18kg.

The seatbelt should never fit the impact shield (O) loosely. 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 (A).
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 (A) in your car
unoccupied, always secure it in the prescribed fashion with your vehi-
cle’s three-point restraint.
Making any modifications to the child restraint system (A) 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 (A) out of direct sunlight to prevent
uncomfortable heating of the surface.
Permit your child to take breaks during longer trips, and be sure that
he or she does not step out of the vehicle into traffic unattended.
Always use the child safety locks in your vehicle’s passenger doors,
if available.
Do not use the child restraint system (A) 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.
The child restraint system (A) may only be used in seats with
three-point restraints compliant with ECE 16 or comparable
specifications.

Use only the seatbelt configuration prescribed by the manufacturer.
4. Adjustments
4.1 Adjusting the seat cushion height
The kiddy energy pro is fitted with a seat cushion (F) that provides for size
adjustment between approximately 9- and 18-month-old children (9-18kg) by
changing the seat height.
The seat cushion (F) can be adjusted to several positions to the 7size of your
child.
Level A: 9 – 11 kg (approx. 9 - 13 months); seat cushion folded
(Fig. 1 + 2)
Level B: 11 – 13 kg (approx. 13 - 18 months); seat cushion unfolded
(Fig. 3 + 4)
Level C: from 13 kg (approx. 18 months to approx. 4 years);
without seat cushion (Fig. 5 + 6)
The seat cushion (F) must always be attached; feed the mounting strap (L)
through the ventilation openings (M) on the backrest (C) (Fig. 7) and close
both fixing buttons (N).
To achieve the correct seating position setting through the seat
cushion (F), the adjustable headrests (B) must always be correctly
positioned.

4.2 Headrest adjustment
The kiddy energy pro makes individual adjustment to the size of the child
possible by means of its height-adjustable headrests (B).
The headrests (B) are capable of multi-stage adjustment to the size of the
child.
The correct headrest setting is achieved when the head of your child lies in
the narrowest position of the headrest (B) (Fig. 9).
The head support (B) is adjusted by pulling the height adjuster (J) at the rear
of the headrest (B) slightly outwards and subsequently pulling the headrest
(B) upwards or downwards, depending on the required height (Fig 10).
4.3 Adjusting the reclined position
The kiddy energy pro is equipped with a reclined position that ensures
comfortable and safe seating particularly on longer trips.
To set the reclined position, first unfasten your vehicle’s own restraint
system if necessary.
Pull the kiddy energy pro forward far enough so that the sleeping clamp (D)
found on the back of the child seat can be unfolded (Fig. 11).
Then slide your kiddy back against your vehicle’s backrest.
The sleeping clamp (D) must rest against the backrest of the vehicle’s seat
in its unfolded position.
This prevents the seat from sliding backwards (Fig. 12).
ENG

The kiddy energy pro’s backrest (C) is then automatically lowered into the
reclined position. The reclined position is reached when the headrest (B) of
the child seat rests against the backrest of the vehicle (Fig. 12).
Do not attempt to adjust the reclined position during travel. Always
bring your vehicle to a complete stop to do this. Unfasten the vehicle
restraint, change the position of the sleeping clamp (D) and the
backrest (C), and then secure your child (the child restraint system)
again.
To secure your child in the reclined position, proceed as described in Section
5.2.
5. In-vehicle installation
5.1 Seat selection and adjustment
Please familiarise yourself thoroughly with the use of child
restraint systems (A) as described in your vehicle’s owner’s
manual.
The child restraint system (A) kiddy energy pro can be installed in vehicles
on any seat with a three-point restraint system (lap and shoulder restraint)
(Fig. 13).
The kiddy energy pro can also be used in rear-facing car seats that are
equipped with a three-point restraint system (Fig. 13).
If the motor-car manufacturer allows child restraint systems on
the passenger seat, the seat should be moved to the position
furthest back.

5.2 Secure the child in the seated/reclined position
Position your kiddy on the vehicle seat as described in Section 5.1.
Check to see whether the seat cushions (F) and headrests (B) are adjusted
to the size or body weight of your child (Section 4).
The kiddy energy pro is secured with the three-point vehicle restraint using
the belt guide on the impact shield (Q) (Fig. 14).
Place your child in the seat and ensure that the child’s buttocks press against
the backrest (C).
Push the impact shield (O) into the impact shield guides (G) on the seat
section (Fig. 15).
Slide the impact shield (O) back so that it rests right on your child's tummy.
Then pull your vehicle’s three-point restraint out far enough so that it goes
around your kiddy and can be directly fastened in your vehicle's own
seatbelt lock (Fig. 16).
Make sure that the seatbelt tongue locks securely in place with a noticeable
“click”.
If your original kiddy impact shield (O) comes with toy figurines, these should
be placed over the impact shield (O) for easier belt fastening (Fig. 17).
Next, feed the lap belt through the red impact shield belt guides (Q) of the
impact shield.
ENG
Page: 27
Then pull the lap belt tight (Fig. 18). The impact shield must rest firmly on
your child’s tummy.
Next, feed the shoulder belt through the impact shield belt guides (Q) (Fig.
19).
Make sure that all belts lie flat and are not twisted over each other.
Then tighten the shoulder belt (Fig. 19).
Prior to the trip, check to see that lap and shoulder belts are correctly
positioned on the impact shield (O), snug and not twisted. The belts must lie
flat over the belt guide area on the impact shield (Fig. 19 + 20).
Regularly examine the belt distribution.
6. Removing the cover
Never use your kiddy without its original cover. The cover forms part
of the safety concept.
6.1 Removing the headrest cover
Loosen both straps at the rear of the headrest cover and fold forward. Now
loosen the cover around the height adjuster (J) at the rear of the headrest.
Pull the headrest cover in a forward movement from the headrest (B).
6.2 Removing the backrest cover
Release the cover straps at the rear of the backrest. Then slide the
adjustable headrest (B) to the uppermost position. Pull the cover in a forward
movement from the shoulder rests.

6.3 Removing the seat cover
Release both clasps at the bottom of the seat (E). Pull the strap upwards
between the backrest (C) and the seat (E). Now pull the seat cover from the
Velcro strips in the impact shield guides (G) and remove the seat cover.
6.4 Impact shield cover / toy figurines
The impact shield cover may not be removed. Please consult your dealer or
manufacturer if the impact shield (O) or its cover is damaged. The toy
figurines can be removed by releasing the press studs of the attachment
cord.
6.5 Replacing the cover
To replace the cover, follow the steps for removing the cover in reverse order
(see Sections 6.1 – 6.3).
7. Instructions for care
7.1 Cleaning the cover
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 and removable retainer strap for the toy figures are machine
washable at 30ºC in the delicates cycle. Do not spin or put into the dryer.

7.2 Cleaning plastic parts
The plastic parts can be cleaned with a mild cleanser or with a damp cloth.
Never use aggressive cleansing agents (e.g. solvents).
8. 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.
9. Warranty
For the kiddy energy pro we extend a warranty against defects in
materials and workmanship for up to two years. The warranty period begins
on the date of purchase.
A receipt is required for all claims.
The warranty covers child restraint systems that have been handled
properly and are returned in a clean and orderly condition.
The warranty does not cover:
- Normal wear and tear and damage due to unreasonable use
- Damages due to improper or inordinate usage.
Fabrics: All of our fabrics meet the highest standards regarding
colourfastness against UV radiation. Nevertheless, all fabrics fade when
exposed to UV radiation. This is not due to defective material but to normal
wear and tear, which is not covered by the warranty. Please contact your
specialist dealer immediately in the event of warranty claim.
The kiddy team wish you and your child a good and safe trip at
all times.
