kiddy guardianfix pro – operating manual
1. Introduction
We’re happy that you have decided on the kiddy guardianfix pro as your
choice for a child restraint system (A).
The kiddy guardianfix 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 child safety car seat is also equipped with
kiddy shock absorbers (F) and with the k-fix fastening system for extensive
protection during frontal impact.
To gain the most comprehensive protection for your child, the kiddy
guardianfix pro must be used exactly as described in this manual.
The kiddy guardianfix 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 guardianfix pro has been tested and licensed according to the
latest version of the ECE-R44/04 licensing specifications. It received design
certification for the “universal” and “semi-universal” class of products.
“Universal” means that it is suitable for use in all types of vehicles
in any seat providing a three-point restraint compliant
with ECE 16 or comparable specifications.
“Semi-universal” means that the child restraint system can additionally
be secured to the ISOFIX anchor points of the vehicle.
If this is the case, the child restraint system only may be
installed in cars listed in the included list of approved
vehicles. The list of approved cars is updated regularly.
For the latest version, see

The kiddy guardianfix pro child restraint system is suitable for weight classes
I to III, i.e. for children weighing between 9 and 36kg (approximately 9
months to 12 years of age) or up to a height of 150cm.
Age Groups (Weight Classes): AG I: 9 kg – 18 kg
AG II: 15 kg – 25 kg
AG III: 22 kg – 36 kg
For children weighing 9-18kg (corresponding to ages of approximately 9
months to 4 years), the appropriate impact shield (M) must be used. Please
observe the proper use of the seat cushion (K) (see Section 4.1).
For use in your vehicle, please follow the manufacturer’s
recommendations in your owner’s manual, or contact your
dealership.
3. General safety instructions
Please read the entire instruction manual thoroughly 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.
For children weighing 9 - 18 kg, the child restraint system must
always be used with the appropriate impact shield (M) and seat
cushion (K).
Use the child restraint system only for weight classes I to III (from
9 kg up to 36 kg maximum).
Check to make sure the child restraint system (A) is properly adjusted
to the size of your child prior to the trip. Do not attempt to make
adjustments during travel.
Make sure that all parts are properly locked in place.
ENG
Page: 27
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.
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 (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
vehicle’s three-point restraint (Section 7) or with the k-fix connectors
(E) to the ISOFIX anchor points of the vehicle (Section 6).
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.
The child restraint system (A) may be used only in seats with three-
point restraints compliant with ECE 16 or comparable specifications.
Ensure that the child restraint system (A) was installed in the vehicle
in accordance with this manual.
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 vehicle’s passenger doors, if
available.

ENG

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.
Use only the seatbelt configuration prescribed by the manufacturer.
4. Adjustments
4.1 Adjusting the seat cushion height
The kiddy guardianfix pro must be used for children from 9 to 18kg
with the impact shield (M) and the correctly adjusted seat cushion (K)
(Fig. 1).
The kiddy guardianfix pro is fitted with a seat cushion (K) that ensures the
size adjustment between the approximately 9-month-old child and the
approximately 4-year-old (9-18kg) by changing the seat height.
The seat cushion’s (K) two-way adjustment to the size of your child offers
considerably improved seating comfort for smaller children.
Adjust the seat cushion for your child as follows:
Level A: 9-13kg (approx. 9-18 months); seat cushion folded
(Fig. 2+3)
Level B: 13-18kg (approx. 18 months – 4 years); seat cushion unfolded
(Fig. 4+5)
The seat cushion (K) should always be fastened to the seat; feed the straps
under the seat’s armrests (D), and fasten the buttons on the outside of the
seat cover (Fig. 6).
You must always correctly position the adjustable headrest (G) in
order to achieve the proper seating with the seat cushion (K). Use the
seat cushion (K) only in combination with the impact shield.
ENG
Page: 29
4.2 Adjusting the head and shoulder rest
The innovative adjustment system of the kiddy guardianfix pro provides the
optimal adjustment to the size of your child by adjusting the headrests (G)
and shoulder rests (H) in one movement.
The correct headrest setting is achieved when the head of your child lies in
the narrowest position of the headrest (G) (Fig. 7+8).
To adjust the head (G) and shoulder rests (H), grasp the height adjustment
handle (Q) on the back of the headrest (G) and pull it out gently, while
simultaneously raising or lowering the headrest (G) to the desired height
(Fig. 9).
Check to see that the headrest (G) is firmly locked in place by gently
pressing down on it.
4.3 Adjustment of leg extension (AG II-III, 15-36kg)
Your child can enjoy substantially better seating comfort by adjusting the leg
extension (L). The leg extension (L) can be adjusted to 4 positions.
Pull or push the leg extension (L) into the required position (Fig. 10).
4.4 Adjusting the reclined position (AG I, 9-18kg, only)
Never put the seat in the reclining or upright position while driving. To do that,
stop your vehicle, unfasten the seat belt and take your child out of the child
seat.
The reclining position may only be used for children of the age
group I (9 – 18 kg) together with the impact shield and in case of
semi-universal fixation with the k-fix connectors.
To adjust the reclining position keep the release button (S) pressed (Fig. 11;
Point 1) and at the same time pull the seat (I) away from the backrest of the
vehicle (Fig. 11, Point 2). The more you pull the child safety seat forward the
7
ENG
Page: 30
bigger the reclining angle gets.
The backrest (C) of the kiddy guardianfix pro automatically tilts into the
reclining position. The reclining position is reached when the headrest (G) of
the child safety seat touches the backrest of the vehicle seat (Fig. 12).
The maximum reclining position is reached when the seat (I) cannot
be pulled forward any further.
The maximal angle of the reclining position depends on the position of the
Isofix anchorage points in the vehicle.
5. Seat selection and adjustment
5.1 Adjusting the car seat
Please familiarise yourself thoroughly with the use of child
restraint systems (A) as described in your vehicle’s owner
manual.
If installation is prevented by a headrest, it must be set at the highest
position or removed (Fig. 13).
The kiddy guardianfix pro’s adjustable backrest (C) ensures that it can rest
securely against the backrest of the car seat.
Position the vehicle’s reclining backrests accordingly.
5.2 Seat for universal installation
The child restraint system (A) kiddy guardianfix pro can be installed in
vehicles on any seat with a three-point restraint system (Fig. 14).
The kiddy guardianfix pro can also be used in rear-facing car seats that are
equipped with a three-point restraint system (Fig. 14).
If the car manufacturer allows child restraint systems on the passenger
seat, the seat should be moved to the position furthest back.

The connectors (E) must be retracted when the kiddy guardianfix pro
is installed universal (without k-fix).
5.3 Seat for semi-universal installation
Semi-universal installation of the child restraint system is only possible on
car seats fitted with ISOFIX anchors. With the aid of the k-fix connectors, the
kiddy guardianfix can be securely fastened to the body of the vehicle by
using these ISOFIX anchor points.
The child restraint system (A) kiddy guardianfix pro can be installed in cars
and on seats that are mentioned in the list of approved vehicles.
This list is updated regularly, for the latest version, see
http://www.kiddy.de/content/files/guardianfix.pdf
The manufacturer recommends, if possible, semi-universal installation of the
child restraint system (A) with the k-fix connectors.
6. Semi-universal installation in vehicle with k-fix
Stick both guide funnels (U) onto the ISOFIX anchor fittings between the seat
and backrest of the vehicle seat (Fig. 15).
Now press the release button (S) in the front under the leg extension (L)
(Fig. 16; Point 1).
The k-fix connectors (E) will now automatically extend from the back of the
seat (I).
Test whether the connector hooks are opened by pushing the two release
mechanisms (V) forward (Fig. 17).
When the lock indicators (W) do not show "green", the connector hooks are
open (Fig. 17).
ENG
Page: 32
10
Place the kiddy guardianfix on a car seat that allows for
semi-universal installation (Section 5.3) and adjust the car seat if
necessary as described in Section 5.1.
Now push both k-fix connectors (E) onto the metal brackets (ISOFIX anchor
points) and press firmly against it so that the connectors (E) lock in place
(Fig. 18).
The correct locking will be confirmed by the "green" k-fix lock indicator (W)
(Fig 19).
Test whether the k-fix connectors (E) are closed by jerking on the
seat (I) and check the left and right k-fix connector whether the lock
indicator (W) shows "green"!
Now you have fixed the kiddy guardianfix pro in the vehicle in the
(maximum) reclining position. The reclining position may only be
used for the age group I (9 – 18 kg) together with the impact shield.
If you want to use the child restraint system for the age group I in the sitting
position or for children of the age groups II and III (15 – 36 kg; without impact
shield) you have to push the seat (I) towards the backrest of the vehicle.
Keep the release button (S) pressed in (Fig. 20; Point 1) while at the same
time pushing the seat (I) toward the backrest (Fig. 20; Point 2).
To secure your child in the seat fixed with k-fix, please proceed as described
in Section 7.
7. Securing the child
Semi-universal: If you want to use the car seat with the k-fix
mounting, make sure it is secured in the vehicle as described in
Section 6!
Universal: If you want to use the child safety car seat without the
k-fix mounting, the k-fix connectors must be retracted into the seat (I)!
ENG
Page: 33

7.1 Securing the child in the age group I (9 – 18 kg)
Position your kiddy child safety seat on the car seat as described in section
5.1 – 5.2 respectively 5.1 + 5.3.
If you want to use it semi-universally (fixed with k-fix) please follow the
instructions from section 6.
Check to see whether your kiddy is adjusted to the size or body weight of
your child (Section 4).
The kiddy guardianfix pro is secured with the three-point vehicle restraint
using the belt guide on the impact shield (N) (Fig. 21).
Your kiddy guardianfix pro may only be used for Age Group I with the
impact shield (M) and seat cushion (K) belonging to it.
Place your child in the seat and ensure that the child’s buttocks press against
the backrest (C).
Push the impact shield (M) into the guide slots on the seat section (Fig. 22).
Slide the impact shield 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. 23).
Make sure that the seatbelt tongue locks securely in place with a noticeable
“click.”
If your Original kiddy impact shield (M) comes with toy figures, these should
be placed over the impact shield for easier belt fastening (Fig. 24).
Next, feed the lap belt through the red belt guides (N) on the impact shield,
and then tighten the belt (Fig. 25).
The impact shield must rest firmly on your child’s tummy.
Next, feed the shoulder belt through the impact shield belt guides (Fig. 26).
ENG
Page: 34
12
Make sure that all belts lie flat and are not twisted over each other.
Then tighten the shoulder belt (Fig. 26).
Prior to the trip, check to see that lap and shoulder belts are correctly
positioned on the impact shield (M), snug and not twisted. The belts must lie
flat over the belt guide area of the impact shield (Fig. 26+27). Examine the
belts periodically.
7.2 Securing the child in the age groups II – III (15 – 36 kg)
Use without an impact shield (M) is only allowed for children with a
body weight of at least 15kg (or from approx 4 years of age).
However, we recommend using the impact shield (M) until your child
weighs 18kg.
Always remove the seat cushion (K) for use without the impact shield (M).
Position your kiddy child safety seat on the car seat as described in section
5.1 – 5.2 respectively 5.1 + 5.3.
If you want to use it semi-universally (fixed with k-fix) please follow the
instructions from section 6.
Place the child in the seat and make sure that your kiddy has been adjusted
according to the child's body size (Section 4).
Take the following steps to secure your child with the vehicle’s own 3-point
belt:
Pull out the vehicle restraint and place the lap belt under both armrests (D)
of the seat (I) (Fig. 28).
Now close the belt buckle. Check to see whether the belt buckle is properly
locked in place (Fig. 28).
Tighten the lap belt and place the diagonal belt on the side of the belt
buckle under the armrests (D) (Fig. 29).
ENG
Page: 35
Take the diagonal belt and feed it in between the red diagonal belt guide (B)
and the headrest (G) (Fig. 30; Point 1). Now pull the belt to the inside toward
the child's neck (Fig. 30; Point 2).
Please ensure that the diagonal belt guide (B) opposite the belt
buckle is used (Fig. 32).
Make sure that the belt lies in the diagonal belt guide (B) and is not jammed
at the front of the hook (Fig. 31).
Make sure that the belts are not twisted and do not run too close to the child’s
body. Also check that the belt buckle is correctly positioned.
Now pull the belt system tight (Fig. 32).
Examine the belt distribution regularly during longer trips.
8. Opening the diagonal belt guide
To open the diagonal belt guide (B), press it downward (Fig. 33; Point 1) and
then take the belt out to the side (Fig. 33; Point 2).
9. Dismantling the k-fix after semi-universal use
Keep the release button (S) pressed in (Fig. 34; Point 1) while at the same
time pushing the seat (I) away from the backrest (Fig. 34; Point 2).
Open the left and right k-fix connectors (E) by pressing the release mecha-
nisms (V) towards the front (past the "green" lock indicator (W) (Fig. 35).
When the connectors (E) are open, the kiddy guardianfix is decoupled from
the body of the car.
Finally the k-fix connectors (E) must be retracted into the seat (I).
Keep the release button (S) pressed in (Fig. 36; Point 1) while pulling on the
retraction tab (T) (Fig. 36; Point 2) until the connectors (E) are completely
inside the seat (I).
13
ENG
Page: 36
Now let go of the release button (S) and then the retraction tab (T).
10. Removing and replacing the cover
Never use your kiddy without its original cover. The cover forms part
of the safety concept.
10.1 Removing the headrest and backrest cover
The headrest and backrest cover are sewn together as a single unit.
Slide the adjustable headrest (G) up to the highest position.
Free the cover around the height adjustment handle (Q) at the back of the
headrest (G) and below both diagonal belt guides (B). Pull the cover off the
headrest (G) from the back toward the front.
10.2 Removing the shoulder rest covers
Slide the adjustable headrest (G) down to the lowest position. Unsnap the
buttons on the rears of the shoulder rests. Now you can pull the covers off
the shoulder rests (H) from the bottom to the top.
10.3 Removing the seat cover
The leg extension cover is fastened with a rubber band. You can carefully
pull the cover off in an upward motion.
Afterwards open the poppers respectively Velcro® underneath the leg exten-
sion (L) and at the bottom, in the back and on the side of the child safety seat.
Remove the strap from the backrest (C) and pull the cover off in an upward
motion.

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.
11.2 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).
12. Steps to take after an accident
