There isn’t any recline option built into the Pico, simply ensure that the seat bottom is folded forward and clicked into place, then place the Pico on a vehicle seat that’s in the upright position and follow the installation steps in the Pico owner’s manual.

Make sure that your child meets all of the size requirements to use the Pico: at least 1 year old (recommended age 2+), weighing at least 22 pounds, and at least 30" tall. 

Once you have properly installed the Pico, open and loosen the harness system, and adjust the headrest upward to its "Lowest Use Position" (headrest above seat back).

Place your child in the seat, place the harness straps over their arms and shoulders and buckle each buckle tongue into the buckle. Pull all of the slack downward, towards the buckle, and tighten each harness strap at the hips.

Ensure that there is NO slack in the harness system (check by assuring you can not pinch the harness webbing vertically), then clip the chest clip together and adjust it at armpit level. Raise or lower the headrest (as needed) so that the tops of the child’s ears are below the top of the headrest, and then check to make sure that the child’s shoulders are below the top of the harness system to assure proper fit. Please don't hesitate to contact us for help.

All little travelers get a bit of road dust! Pico is easy to spot clean and air dry thanks to its mesh design.

To clean fabric pads (seat pad, buckle pad and harness pads): spot clean using warm water with mild, wool-safe detergent. Air-dry completely before re-use or storage. Dry away from direct sunlight.

DO NOT bleach, iron, or machine wash. Harness Straps: Spot clean using cold water with mild detergent. Air dry completely before re-use or storage.

DO NOT bleach or dry clean. Aluminum: Spot clean using warm water. Towel dry completely before re-use or storage.

DO NOT remove labels from car seat as they are meant to remind you and others of important safety information. Buckle and Lower Anchor Connector hardware: buckle should fasten with a "click." If not, rinse under warm water.

DO NOT use detergents or lubricants.

The Pico meets all U. S. federal safety standards and crash test requirements for forward-facing harnessed safety seats for use in passenger vehicles, and the FAA requirements for use on commercial airplanes.
To keep Pico in top travel shape, we recommend spot cleaning and not removing the fabric pads. If necessary, all fabric pads for the seat bottom, seat back and headrest can be removed using the Pico's velcro attachments on the backside of each pad. Please follow our care instructions on our support page to properly hand wash, air dry, and re-assemble your Pico to get your seat pads back to the correct tension.

The Pico's tether strap is built to reach almost any tether anchor locations, but if Pico's tether hook does not reach your tether anchor please reach out directly to WAYB at [email protected] so we can send you a free tether strap extender for your Pico. It will be shipped via FedEx Ground to the same shipping address as your original order.

We highly recommend you take your Pico with you on the plane as a carry on, even if you're not planning on using it on the flight. We made sure to make it compact enough that it fits nicely in the overhead bin! If you check the Pico, it could run the risk of being damaged by the baggage handling process.

Co-founders Tio and I.S. Jung noticed parents struggling to lug bulky car seats through the airport. Traveling with small kids seemed hard enough without adding a big, heavy car seat to the mix.

They realized that families had two not-so-great choices when traveling with little ones: deal with the hassle of bringing a cumbersome car seat, or skip the seat, taking a safety risk. The Jungs wanted to create a light, portable car seat that would pass all safety requirements and still fold up small so families could roam with it. After many months of development and testing, the Pico travel car seat is now available for preorder!.

The Pico is ultralight, thanks to its strong and slim aluminum frame. Its narrow design means it fits in an airline seat, or three-across in the backseat of a car, while still passing federal safety testing for planes and motor vehicles. 
Our firstborn is the WAYB Pico (patent pending), the on-the-go car seat that’s tested to federal safety standards for use in cars and planes.
The safest position in any passenger vehicle for the Pico is one in which you can correctly and properly install the Pico according to the instructions in both the Pico and your vehicle owner’s manuals.
The Pico is not allowed the be installed with seat belts that are inflatable. If possible, install the Pico with the LATCH system, or move it to a different seating position not equipped with an inflatable seat belt to install it.
