Your manual is located in a pouch sewn into the seat cover on the back of the seat on the left hand side about half way up the backrest underneath the seat cover. Here is a video that shows you here.

Yes, your Radian® 3R® is entirely suitable for a newborn. We recommend rear-facing from 2.3 kg to 22.7 kg as this is the safest way for a young child to travel. Learn more here.

When installing your Radian® 3R® rear-facing in some vehicles, the space-saving Angle Adjuster® can make more space available behind the front seat. Check out the video here.

Only use Diono® approved and crash-tested accessories with your Radian® 3R®. The accessories you can use are here.

Diono® is the only car seat manufacturer to offer a folding convertible car seat. This makes it the perfect travel seat as it is so compact and folds into a handy car seat travel backpack. Saving space for trunk or home storage.

129.5 cm is the minimum vehicle seat width needed between the vehicle's interior structures to fit your Radian® 3R®. The Radian® fits 3-across in most mid-sized Sedans up. Learn more here.

Your Radian® 3R® can be used rear-facing up to 22.7 kg or 112 cm height. We encourage rear-facing as long as possible since it is the safest way for children to travel!

You can use your Radian® 3R® until 29.5 kg forward-facing with the 5-point harness and then until 54 kg as a high back booster.

Your Radian® 3R® uses 76-91.4 cm between the vehicle's backseat and front seat back, depending on the vehicle's seat shape and contour. Fitting in most vehicles' rear-facing, use our space-saving Angle Adjuster® if more space is needed.

No. Always follow our guidelines regarding use of items not included with the car seat. We only recommend the use of accessories and spare parts from Diono® as all of these have been tested for use with your Radian® 3R®.

No, the Radian® 3R® does not come with a cup holder, but you can purchase them separately here.

At Diono's Headquarters, a team of engineers continually work on improvements to our car seats. SafePlus™ engineering is the latest advancement in materials and rear and side impact protection, thoroughly tested and built into many of our car seats.

The SafePlus™ side impact pod is a safety feature that can be installed on the car seat side closest to the car door. It works by redirecting side impact crash force energy away from the seat and the child.

Our car seat fabrics are tested to ensure they do not contain any legally restricted harmful flame retardants. In order to meet Federal and Canadian Motor Vehicle Safety Standards for flammability, our car seat fabrics do contain flame retardants.

Safety is paramount. Diono® ensures compliance with US Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (FMVSS), US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), and Canadian Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (CMVSS), regularly testing all car seats.

All Diono® convertible car seats have a life span of 10 years, starting from when you purchase your seat. If the date of purchase cannot be determined then we use the date of manufacture.

Each Radian® is hand built by our manufacturing partners overseen by our highly trained quality control team.

Your Radian® is heavy as our engineers will never compromise on the intergity of the famous Diono Steel core. Since launch our reinforced automotive grade high strength steel core is the heart of our Radian, protecting generations of kids everyday.

Your Radian® 3R® has a low seat base because as your child grows, they will want to get in and out of your car themselves. This low height makes it very easy for them to get into their seat before you harness them up.

The seat sides on the base expand as your child grows. Parents and kids really love this feature on the Radian® 3R® as it makes travel so much easier
