Nissan Murano 2015-2022 Owners Manual / Safety—Seats, seat belts and supplemental restraint system / Child restraints / Precautions on child restraints

WARNING

Failure to follow the warnings and instructions for proper use and installation of child restraints could result in serious injury or death of a child or other passengers in a sudden stop or collision:

  • The child restraint must be used and installed properly. Always follow all of the child restraint manufacturer’s instructions for installation and use.
  • Infants and children should never be held on anyone’s lap. Even the strongest adult cannot resist the forces of a collision.

    Nissan Murano. Precautions on child restraints

  • Do not put a seat belt around both a child and another passenger.
  • NISSAN recommends that all child restraints be installed in the rear seat. Studies show that children are safer when properly restrained in the rear seat than in the front seat. If you must install a forwardfacing child restraint in the front seat, refer to “Forward-facing child restraint installation using the seat belts” in this section.
  • Even with the NISSAN Advanced Air Bag System, never install a rearfacing child restraint in the front seat. An inflating air bag could seriously injure or kill a child. A rearfacing child restraint must only be used in the rear seat.

    Nissan Murano. Precautions on child restraints

  • Be sure to purchase a child restraint that will fit the child and vehicle. Some child restraints may not fit properly in your vehicle.
  • Child restraint anchorages are designed to withstand only those loads imposed by correctly fitted child restraints. Under no circumstances are they to be used to attach adult seat belts, or other items or equipment to the vehicle. Doing so could damage the child restraint anchorages. The child restraint will not be properly installed using the damaged anchorage,and a child could be seriously injured or killed in a collision.
  • Never use the anchor points for adult seat belts, or other items.
  • A child restraint with a top tether strap should not be used in the front passenger seat.
  • Keep seatbacks as upright as possible after fitting the child restraint.
  • Infants and children should always be placed in an appropriate child restraint while in the vehicle.

When the child restraint is not in use, keep it secured with the LATCHsystem or a seat belt. In a sudden stop or collision, loose objects can injure occupants or damage the vehicle.

CAUTION

A child restraint in a closed vehicle can become very hot. Check the seating surface and buckles before placing a child in the child restraint.

This vehicle is equipped with a universal child restraint anchor system, referred to as the LATCH (Lower Anchors and Tethers for CHildren) system. Some child restraints include rigid or webbing-mounted attachments that can be connected to these anchors. For additional information, refer to “LATCH (Lower Anchors and Tethers for CHildren) system” in this section.

If you do not have a LATCH compatible child restraint, the vehicle seat belts can be used.

Several manufacturers offer child restraints for infants and children of various sizes. When selecting any child restraint, keep the following points in mind:

  • Choose only a restraint with a label certifying that it complies with Federal MotorVehicle Safety Standard or Canadian Motor Vehicle Safety Standard.
  • Check the child restraint in your vehicle to be sure it is compatible with the vehicle’s seat and seat belt system.
  • If the child restraint is compatible with your vehicle, place your child in the child restraint and check the various adjustments to be sure the child restraint is compatible with your child. Choose a child restraint that is designed for your child’s height and weight. Always follow all recommended procedures.
  • If the combined weight of the child and child restraint is less than 65 lbs. (29.5 kg), you may use either the LATCH anchors or the seat belt to install the child restraint (not both at the same time).
  • If the combined weight of the child and child restraint is greater than 65 lbs. (29.5 kg), use the vehicle’s seat belt (not the lower anchors) to install the child restraint.
  • Be sure to follow the child restraint manufacturer’s instructions for installation.

All U.S. states and Canadian provinces or territories require that infants and small children be restrained in an approved child restraint at all times while the vehicle is being operated. Canadian law requires the top tether strap on forwardfacing child restraints be secured to the designated anchor point on the vehicle.
