•The additional weight of a child may alter the riding characteristics of the bicycle,
requiring additional caution while steering and braking.

from just below the knees to the soles of the feet.
This measurement should be used to adjust the seat,
by measuring from the seat to the bottom of the foot rest.
The foot rest should be positioned at exactly this height.

Be sure to release both sides of the buckle.
• (2) Move the harness straps out of the way and place the child in the seat.

so that the harness passes
over the child’s shoulders.

into the buckle until an audible click is heard indicating the buckle is secured.
• (5) The tops of the shoulder straps should be parallel to or higher than the shoulders of the child.
If they are not,remove the shoulder strap from the anchor strap and refasten the anchor strap
in the proper position.
CAUTION!
• (6) If the child is too large for the straps to be adjusted properly, do not use the Progeny carrier.
Make sure both shoulder straps are the same length for maximum comfort and security of the child.
