User’s manual kiddy nest
1. Using the kiddy nest baby car seat
The kiddy nest has been tested and approved in accordance with the latest
version of Safety Standard ECE 44-04. The approved model was categori-
sed in the class “universal”. This means that it can be used on all seats with
three-point seatbelts in every type of vehicle.
Please be absolutely certain that the kiddy nest is
never used on seats with active front airbags!
The kiddy nest can be used on all vehicle seats that meet the following cri-
teria:
There is no active front airbag.
There is a 3-point seatbelt that has been approved according to
ECE 16 or comparable standards.
Studies by the Berlin Technical University have demonstrated that side air-
bags do not represent a significant danger to baby car seats.
Please follow the recommendations made in the user’s manual provided by
the vehicle’s manufacturer when using the baby car seat in your vehicle!
The kiddy nest can be used for babies that weight up to 13 kg or are no older
than approx. 15 months.

2. General safety instructions
Please take a few minutes to read through the user’s manual for the
sake of your child’s safety.
Many injuries are the result of easily avoidable thoughtlessness.
Please read the instructions for use carfully before using the baby
seat for the first time. Using it incorrectly could pose a risk to the life
of your child.
Do not make any changes to the kiddy nest, the strap system or any
other components of the baby car seat.
Regularly check the parts of the kiddy nest, above all the strap
system, for any signs of wear or other damage.
Make sure that no parts of the kiddy nest or the straps get caught in
doors or adjustable seats. Set adjustable backrests so that they come
into contact with the holder of the baby car seat.
Protect the kiddy nest against direct rays from the sun. It could beco-
me uncomfortably warm.
Make sure, above all with vans, that the kiddy nest is used in an easi-
ly accessible place so that it can be reached in cases of emergen-
cies.
Always secure your luggage and other heavy objects properly in
your vehicle. Loose objects can cause serious injuries to passengers
in the event of an accident. The dashboard is not a place for trans-
porting objects.

3.2 Sunroof
The sunroof can be adjusted to protect the kiddy nest against direct rays

You can assemble and disassemble the sunroof in the following manner:
1.) Slide the sunroof’s frame through the loop in the fabric. The rounded end
of the holder must face the fabric.
2.) Press the fastening pins at the end of the sunroof’s frame into the holes
intended for them on the kiddy nest. These are located close to the rota-
tion point of the holder on the side of the kiddy nest.
3.) When removing the sunroof, tilt the holder towards the child’s feet and
push the fastening pins at the end of the frame out of the (fastening) ho-
les.

3.3 Removing the cover
Never use the kiddy nest without its original cover. The cover is part
of the safety concept.
The fabric cover can be easily taken off for washing. Remove the strap sys-
tem by pulling the strap ends through their respective openings on the cover.
You can then take the cover off the seat.
When you put the cover back on, please make sure that the straps
are not twisted in the fabric when you thread them back through the
openings.
4. Installation in vehicle
4.1 Selecting place
The kiddy nest is not suited for seats that are equipped with acti-
ve front airbags.
Some car manufacturers however offer to shut off the front airbag in the
manufacturer’s workshop. Please consult the manufacturer’s workshop.
Please use the operating handbook in your vehicle to inform yourself about
the basics concerning children’s seats in vehicles!
The kiddy nest is not suited for seats that are only equipped with a 2-point
seatbelt for your waist. Please use the kiddy nest only on seats that have a
3 - point seatbelt.
We recommend using the kiddy nest on the back seat of cars and
on the easiest seat to reach in cases of emergencies in vans.

4.2 Installation facing backwards
After you have consulted the operating handbook for the vehicle, you can
install the kiddy nest on the appropriate seat (see 4.1) as follows:
Fig 1. - Make sure that the kiddy nest faces backwards on the car seat
(please observe the instructions in section 4.1) and place the
holder in the position for driving (see 3.1).
Fig 2. - Slide the lap belt of the vehicle’s 3 - point seatbelt through both
pelvic guides. Let the tongue plate snap in the belt lock with a
clearly audible “click”. Check to make sure it is locked by pulling
on the belt.
Fig 3. - Now slide the shoulder belt of the vehicle’s own 3-point seatbelt
around the back of the kiddy nest’s headrest. Insert the shoulder
strap in the guide intended for it on the kiddy nest.

Fig 4 - Tighten the vehicle’s own 3 - point seatbelt by pulling hard on the
positions showed in fig. 3 and fig. 4.
Some vehicles have so - called retractor locks. This deactivates
the automatic unrolling of the vehicle’s own seatbelt system, so
that the kiddy nest seat can be firmly installed. Consult the opera-
ting instructions in your vehicle or in the manufacturer’s workshop.
5. Securing your baby in the kiddy nest
5.1 Setting the height of the straps
The kiddy nest has integrated shoulder straps with 3 different settings for the
height so that your growing baby is always held in an ideal position in the
kiddy nest.
Please set the straps in accordance with the following illustrations:
incorrect, too low incorrect, too high correct

o adjust the shoulder straps, pull them from the
back of the kiddy nest through the shoulder
pads, the cover and through the baby seat. Set
the shoulder strap to the desired height.
Please make sure that the straps are never twi-
sted and that both shoulder straps are threaded
through the baby’s seat at the same height.
5.2 Using the straps
Please make sure that your baby is always buckled into the kiddy
nest. This includes when he or she is not in the vehicle.
The straps on the kiddy nest are to be used as follows:

ENG
Fig 1: After you have made sure that the shoulder straps are set to the
right height (see 5.1), pull both shoulder straps over your baby’s
shoulders.
Fig 2: Bring the ends of the shoulder straps together in the belt’s lock.
The lock is engaged when you hear a clear “click”. If the shoul-
der straps are too short, please proceed as described in Fig. 5.
Fig 3: Check to make sure your baby is securely buckled in by simulta-
neously pulling on both shoulder straps and on the strap’s lock.
Fig 4: Tense the strap’s lock by pulling on the central strap adjuster.
The strap system should lie as close as possible to the body of
your baby without pinching him or her. Please be extra sure to
check the tightness of the straps with thick clothing (in winter).
Fig 5: The shoulder straps can be loosened once again by pressing the
central belt adjuster (“Press” button highlighted in red) and simul-
taneously pulling the shoulder straps.
To remove your baby, simply open the lock and remove your
baby from the kiddy nest.
When you lay the shoulder straps over the back of the baby seat,
they will not be in your way when you put your baby back in the
kiddy nest.
6. Cleaning instructions

ENG
6.2 Cleaning the strap system
The strap system can be cleaned with a moist towel. Please do not wash the
straps in a washing machine or with chemical detergents.
Please make sure to avoid getting dirt on or in the strap’s lock so that it
retains its ability to function. If however dirt compromises its ability to
function, you can soak the lock in a mild soap bath and then rinse it off with
lots of warm water.
If you still have concerns about the locks ability to function, we would be glad
to send you a replacement.
6.3 Cleaning the baby seat
The plastic baby seat and the holder can be cleaned with a moist towel.

We provide a 2 year guarantee for manufacturing or material defects on this
baby car seat. The guarantee period begins on the date of its purchase.
Basis for complaints is the receipt. The guarantee is limited to children’s car
seats that were handled appropriately and were returned in a clean and
orderly state.
The guarantee does not cover:
- natural wear and damage from excessive use
- damage from unsuitable or improper use
Fabric: All of our fabrics comply with the high requirements governing
durability against UV rays. Nevertheless, the colour of all fabrics recedes
when they are exposed to UV rays. This is not a matter of errors in the fabric;
rather it is a normal sign of wear for which we cannot assume liability.
Lock: If problems with the functioning of the lock arise, these are generally a
result of dirt getting into it. The dirt in these cases can be washed out. Please
proceed in accordance with your instructions for use.
Please contact your retailer immediately in the event of a guarantee claim.
