Symphony65™ All-in-One Car Seat Offers Safety for Infants to Toddlers
Miamisburg, Ohio (October 2, 2009) – More than 41 million Americans will take to the road this holiday season, but how safe are the passengers? A recent study published by The American Academy of Pediatrics cited that children who were aged 4 to 8 and using a belt-positioning booster seat were 45 percent less likely to sustain injuries than similar aged children who were using the vehicle seat belt in the event of a crash. Parents can now rest easy thanks to Evenflo’s Symphony65™ All-in-One Car Seat; accommodating children from infant to 100 pounds, secures easily to the vehicle using SureLATCH™, and includes an easy-to-adjust Infinite Slide™ Harness Adjustment system providing a secure fit for the child.
It is important for parents to be familiar with their car seat to ensure it’s installed properly. A car seat should fit the child’s size and weight, can be installed correctly in your car, and one that is used every time you drive. According to a study released by Safe Kids Worldwide, four out of five car seats are installed incorrectly. The Symphony™ 65 All-in-One features SureLatch technology, providing the best possible child car seat safety. SureLatch is a new technology exclusive to Evenflo that makes installing the car seat even easier than using LATCH, (Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children). With a quick “Click, Click, Push” moms and dads are able to install the car seat correctly every time in as little as 3 steps.
“Due to the increased number of vehicles on the road during the holiday season, it is extremely important for parents to take necessary precautions in order to keep their family safe,” said Debbie Meyers, brand manager, car seat at Evenflo. “Safety is a top priority for us and our new SureLatch technology provides parents the assurance that their car seat will be properly installed every time they get in the car.”
The Symphony65™ also features the Infinite Slide™ harness system, which features an increased 65 pound harness weight that can accommodate children from 5 to 100 pounds, making this car seat the only seat your child will need. The Pediatrics study also reported a 68 percent reduction in injuries for near-side impacts and an 82 percent reduction for far-side impacts for children who were restrained in a booster seat. The Symphony’s weight limit of 100 pounds meets the AAP recommended use of a booster seat for children through the age of eight, which means children are kept safer for longer.
Accommodating the growth of the child, the Symphony™ 65 also features an adjustable head rest to meet a range of children’s heights and a multi-position recline adjusting for rear or front facing positioning.
