kiddy guardian pro – operating manual
1. Introduction
We’re happy that you have decided on the kiddy guardian pro as your
choice for a child restraint system (A).
The kiddy guardian pro is the latest innovative product in our Pro product
line. 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), which provide extensive protection
during frontal impact.
To gain the most comprehensive protection for your child, the kiddy
guardian pro must be used exactly as described in this manual.
The kiddy guardian 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 guardian 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
guardian 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 guardian 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
ENG
Page: 24
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 5.1).
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 9-18kg, 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 9kg
up to 36kg 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.
Always secure the child restraint system (A) with your vehicle’s own
three-point restraint system.

ENG
Page: 25

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 vehi-
cle’s three-point restraint.
Making any modifications to the child restraint system (A) is not per-
mitted. 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.
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 (See Section 10).
Use only the seatbelt configuration prescribed by the manufacturer.
4. 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 guardian pro can be installed in vehicles
on any seat with a three-point restraint system (Fig. 1).
The kiddy guardian pro can also be used in rear-facing car seats that are
equipped with a three-point restraint system (Fig. 1).
If the motor manufacturer allows child restraint systems on the passenger
seat, the seat should be moved to the position furthest back.
If installation is prevented by a headrest, it must be set at the highest
position or removed (Fig. 2).
The kiddy guardian 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. Adjustments
5.1 Adjusting the seat cushion height
The kiddy guardian pro must be used for children from 9 to 18kg with
the impact shield (M) and the correctly adjusted seat cushion (K)
(Fig. 3).
The kiddy guardian 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. 4+5)
Level B: 13-18kg (approx. 18 months – 4 years); seat cushion unfolded
(Fig. 6+7)
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. 8).
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.
5.2 Adjusting the head and shoulder rest
The innovative adjustment system of the kiddy guardian pro provides the
optimal adjustment to the size of your child by adjusting the headrests (G)
and shoulder rests (H) in one movement.
7
ENG
Page: 28
The correct headrest setting is achieved when the head of your child lies in
the narrowest position of the headrest (G) (Fig. 10).
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. 11).
Check to see that the headrest (G) is firmly locked in place by gently
pressing down on it.
5.3 Adjusting the reclined position (AG I, 9-18kg, only)
The kiddy guardian pro is equipped with a reclined position that ensures
comfortable and safe seating particularly on longer trips.
The reclined position may be used only for children in Age Group I
(9-18kg) in conjunction with the impact shield.
To set the reclined position, first unfasten your vehicle’s own restraint system
if necessary.
Pull the kiddy guardian pro forward far enough so that the sleeping clamp (E)
found on the back of the child seat can be unfolded (Fig. 12).
Then slide your kiddy back against your vehicle’s backrest.
The sleeping clamp (E) must rest against the backrest of the vehicle’s seat
in its unfolded position.
This prevents the seat from sliding backwards (Fig. 13).
The kiddy guardian pro’s backrest (C) can then be lowered to the reclined
position. The reclined position is reached when the headrest (G) of the child
seat rests against the backrest of the vehicle (Fig. 13).
8
ENG
Page: 29

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 (E) 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
6.
6. In-vehicle installation for Age Group I (9-18kg)
Position your kiddy on the vehicle seat as described in Section 4.
Check to see whether your kiddy is adjusted to the size or body weight of
your child (Section 5).
The kiddy guardian pro is secured with the three-point vehicle restraint using
the belt guide on the impact shield (N) (Fig. 14).
Your kiddy guardian 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 (N) into the guide slots on the seat section (Fig. 15).
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. 16).
Make sure that the seatbelt tongue locks securely in place with a noticeable
“click.”
ENG

If your Original kiddy impact shield (M) comes with toy figures, these should
be placed over the impact shield for easier belt fastening (Fig. 17).
Next, feed the lap belt through the red belt guides (N) on the impact shield,
and then tighten the belt (Fig. 15).
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 (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 (M), snug and not twisted. The belts must lie
flat over the belt guide area of the impact shield (Fig. 19+20).
Examine the belts periodically.
7. In-vehicle installation for Age Groups II & III (15-36kg)
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).

7.1 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. 21).
7.2 In-vehicle installation (AG II-III, 15-36kg)
Position your kiddy on the vehicle seat as described in Section 4.
Place the child in the seat and satisfy yourself that your kiddy has been
adjusted according to the child's body size (Section 5).
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.
Now close the belt buckle. Check to see whether the belt buckle is properly
locked in place (Fig. 22).
Tighten the lap belt and place the diagonal belt on the side of the belt
buckle under the armrests (D) (Fig. 23).
Take the diagonal belt and feed it in from the front over the hooks of the red
diagonal belt guide (B) on the headrest (Fig. 24). You can also open the
hooks by hand by pressing downwards (Fig. 27).
Please ensure that the belt guide opposite the belt buckle is used (Fig. 24).
Make sure that the diagonal belt lies in the belt guide and is not jammed at
the front of the hook (Fig. 25).

ENG
Page: 32
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. 26).
Examine the belt distribution regularly during longer trips.
7.3 Opening the diagonal belt guide
To open the diagonal belt guide (B), push the hook downwards (Fig. 27) and
then remove the belt to the front.
8. Removing and replacing the cover
Never use your kiddy without its original cover. The cover forms part
of the safety concept.
8.1 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.
8.2 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.

8.3 Removing the seat cover
The leg support (L) cover is fastened with a rubber band. You can carefully
pull off the cover upwards.
In order to take off the seat cover, open the fastener at the bottom of the seat
(I). Then open the press studs or Velcro® fasteners underneath the leg
extension (L) and at the bottom of the seat (I). Remove the retaining belt from
the backrest (C) and pull the cover forward from under the two lap belt
guides (J).
Now the seat cover can be removed.
8.4 Impact shield cover
The impact shield cover may not be removed or washed.
Please consult your dealer or manufacturer if the impact shield or its cover is
damaged.
8.5 Replacing the cover
To replace the cover, follow the steps for removing the cover in reverse order
(see Sections 8.1 – 8.3).
9. Instructions for care
9.1 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.

9.2 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).
10. 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.
11. Warranty
For the kiddy guardian 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.
