If a child eats and drinks in the car seat, the crotch buckle and buckle tongues should be periodically checked and cleaned of any accumulated debris or liquids. The crotch buckle may be cleaned with a damp cloth or removed and thoroughly rinsed with warm water and towel dried.
Test the crotch buckle by fastening and unfastening until a positive click is heard when inserting the buckle tongues. If a click is not heard, repeat the cleaning procedure. DO NOT use lubricants, solvents, abrasive cleaners, soap or other household detergents on the crotch buckle or buckle tongues.
