Leading consumer magazine rates Evenflo triumph #1 for performance and price.
Miamisburg, OH (PRWEB) November 19, 2009 -- The experience of buying a car seat can be a daunting, particularly for first-time parents. Different types of seats, different features and different car seat installation methods complicate things further. But considering how often we transport our children in vehicles today, choosing the most appropriate child car seat is one of the most critical decisions parents and caregivers can make to keep a family safe and secure.
Evenflo is helping moms and dads by providing practical car seat buying knowledge so they can make smart, informed choices when purchasing a car seat.
Parents should remember that there are four key aspects to choosing the proper car seat; how it fits your child, your family budget, your style of vehicle, and ease of use to ensure your child is secure each time he/she rides in the car.
Ideally, a car seat will adapt to the growth of your child as they grow, providing a secure fit for infants and toddlers. According to one of America’s leading consumer magazine, the Evenflo Triumph Advance line of car seats was rated the #1 seat for performance and price among convertibles. Designed for newborns through toddlers of 50 pounds with safety and convenience in mind, the Triumph Advanced car seat includes Infinite Slide™ Harness for easy height adjustments, the ability to simply and safely maneuver your child in and out of the car seat.
Triumph car seats deliver first class safety features for a wide range of children at a reasonable cost. A common misconception about child car seat safety is that safety comes at a cost. While all car seats sold in the U.S. must pass the same federal crash tests, proper car seat installation is the key to keeping your child safe and secure. In fact, since it can effectively take the place of two seats (an infant only and a convertible); the Triumph series is an exceptional value.
“A study released by Safe Kids Worldwide revealed that 4 out of 5 car seats are used incorrectly,” said Alison Rhodes, founder of Safety Mom.com and National Child Safety expert. “Parents need to educate themselves on all aspects of car seat safety to learn how to keep little ones safe and latched in properly while on the road.”
Car seats are not a one-size-fit-all product. Since vehicles vary in size, it is important to test the seat in the car before putting a child in it. Several automobile manufacturers’ Web sites provide useful information regarding proper use of the Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children (LATCH) system. Evenflo’s Triumph Advance is compatible with the LATCH system, available in vehicles beginning in 2002, and has passed side impact testis adding additional security.
Parents and caregivers can also visit Evenflo’s Web site, www.evenflo.com, to view free educational tools and car seat installation videos. A step-by-step, how-to video is available for every Evenflo child car seat.
