How to fit SnoozeShade Car Seat Canopy (pre-2021 version)
These are the instructions for the pre-2021 version of the SnoozeShade Car Seat Canopy. If you have the current version with a grey trim, you'll find the instructions here.
SnoozeShade Car Seat Canopy attaches quickly and easily to all Group 0 and Group 0+ car seats with a rigid carry handle. Below you’ll find a short demonstration video, which shows you how to fit it. Before you dive into the demo, check out our top tips:
1. If your car seat has an integrated hood, push it all the way back.
2. Make sure the handle is in the upright position and wrap the two top straps around it, securing with the Velcro pads.
3. Pull the elasticated edges of the SnoozeShade over the front and back of your car seat.

- Do not iron.
SnoozeShade was invented by a British mum, Cara Sayer, who needed a solution to help her baby daughter sleep soundly in her pram. Our scientifically tested fabric is free from chemicals and completely air permeable (which means air passes through it freely), and all our products are designed to exceed UK, European and US standards. Every component is safe enough for a newborn, including our zips and straps.
The following information will help ensure you use your SnoozeShade Car Seat Canopy safely. Please read it carefully:
