Automatic locking mode is a feature that keeps the seat belts from having any slack. This feature should always be used when attaching a child restraint system. To set the system, follow these steps: 1. Buckle the seat belt. 2. Pull the shoulder strap downward until the entire belt is extracted from the retractor. If the belt is an inflatable belt, then instead of this step, pull the lap belt upward until the entire belt is extracted. 3. Release the belt and allow it to retract. 4. Try and move the belt to make sure that it is locked.
