Safety systems

Systems of safety of passengers

Seat belts with natyazhitel of seat belts and devices of restriction of forces of a tension of a seat belt, a safety cushion, and also the safety control of children are independent systems of safety of the passengers which protective functions are coordinated with each other.

In many countries the rules of law regulating instructions for use by seat belts and devices of deduction of children operate. Irrespective of it all passengers without fail should use seat belts or devices of deduction of children.

Devices of deduction of children

For protection in case of failure children growth are lower than 150 cm and age 12 years are more younger need suitable devices of deduction as in their case it is impossible to provide the correct prileganiye of seat belts.

Children are recommended to sit during car movement on back seats as there it provided big safety.

Children by no means cannot sit on a lap at other passengers. In case of failure they are not protected by the device of deduction of children, and the heaviest traumas can be put to them, up to deadly, with the person fastened together in them or a safety cushion of the forward passenger.

On a seat of the forward passenger it is impossible to use the devices of deduction turned back. The exception makes a special children's seat in a combination to system of an automatic identification of existence of a children's seat.

At use of the device of the deduction turned back, without system of an automatic identification of existence of a children's seat near a safety cushion exit the heaviest traumas can be put to the child, up to the deadly.

If on a seat near the driver the device of deduction turned forward is used, it is necessary to establish a seat in extreme back situation.

Use only recommended “MB” of the device of deduction.

The reference on this matter can be received on any HUNDRED "Mercedes-Benzs".

For safety of passengers at installation of the device of deduction of children surely observe an erection manual of the manufacturer.

Do not leave children in the car without supervision as well in case they are protected by the device of deduction of children.

System of an automatic identification of existence of a children's seat

For system of an automatic identification of existence of a children's seat on a seat of the forward passenger the special children's seat is required. Such children's seat can be got on any HUNDRED "Mercedes-Benzs".

At application of such special children's seat on a seat of the forward passenger the safety cushion of the forward passenger is disconnected. The control lamp on the average console burns constantly until on a seat of the forward passenger this special children's seat is mounted.

Fastening of a children's seat of ISOFIX

On models with ISOFIX on the left and right parties of back seats the fastening system for the corresponding children's seats is mounted.
For installation of the corresponding children's seats fixing brackets (1) should be cast away outside before fixing.

This system of fastening is intended for children in weight no more than 22 kg.

Before installation of children's seats check, whether fixing brackets (1) are fixed.

At installation of a children's seat without fail strictly observe requirements of an erection manual of the manufacturer.

Incorrectly mounted children's seat at failure can be unhooked.

Fastening of children's seats and the children's seats which were damaged or being exposed to big loading during failure, it is necessary to replace new.

After removal of children's seats for release of fixing brackets press a key (2). Fixing brackets turn inside before fixing.

Seat belts

Each seat is equipped with a seat belt.

The pulling of a tape of a seat belt is blocked when braking and car delay in all directions and at a tape pulling by breakthrough.

(Cleaning and care of tapes of seat belts — are considered in Head the Suspension bracket and a steering).

Apply only allowed «MB» seat belts.

Do not make change to the device of seat belts. It can negatively affect efficiency of belts.

Pristegivaniye of seat belts
