The Evenflo LiteMax and Evenflo SafeMax infant car seats have updated weight and height requirements, noted below, to allow their use with small occupants:
Weight: 3 – 35 lbs (1.4 – 15.8 kg)
Height: 15.75 – 32 in (40 – 81 cm)
Approval of your child’s healthcare provider
This update is a retroactive change to existing Evenflo LiteMax and SafeMax infant car seats. The following guidelines regarding the use of the infant insert must be applied:
Date of manufacture 1/1/2018 or newer – infant insert is OPTIONAL for child fit
Date of manufacture 12/31/2017 or older – infant insert is REQUIRED for infants who weigh between 3 – 4 lbs and OPTIONAL for infants who weigh over 4 lbs.
The head pillow, harness covers and buckle pad are OPTIONAL for all Litemax seats, regardless of the date they were manufactured.
As with any child using a child restraint, please ensure that all the other requirements set forth in the instruction manual for the child restraint are met.
The Evenflo LiteMax infant car seat allows a “newborn” routing position for the crotch buckle. For the newborn position, place the anchor of the crotch buckle through the rear slot, then feed it up through the middle or front slot. Make sure the anchor is completely through the middle or front slot and is lying flat against the seating surface. NEVER use this routing for children weighing more than 3.6 kg (8 lbs).
Please note that the newborn crotch buckle position may be used, following the directions above, even if the information is not provided in the instruction manual accompanying your Evenflo LiteMax infant car seat.
The Evenflo LiteMax infant car seat allows the “European” belt routing method when installing the carrier without the base. To achieve this installation, route the lap belt through the belt guides on the infant carrier, then wrap the shoulder belt around the back of the infant carrier. Fasten the buckle. Lock your vehicle seat belt and pull to tighten. When the shoulder belt wraps around the back of the infant carrier, it should be placed approximately 2.5” above the bottom of the carrier (on some LiteMax infant seats, this spacing is indicated by a polished surface area). The shoulder belt should NOT be placed under the child restraint.
If your seat belt is not long enough to wrap the shoulder belt around the back of the carrier use the traditional installation method. Route the lap belt through the belt guides on the infant carrier and let the shoulder belt lay across the vehicle seat back. Fasten the buckle. Lock your vehicle seat belt and pull to tighten.
Either installation method may be used as long as a tight, correct installation is achieved.
The Evenflo Symphony All-in-One car seat can be used rear-facing until a child is 40 lbs. or 40 inches and the top of the child’s head is at least one inch below the top of the child restraint headrest in one of its three lowest positions. Allowing use of the third headrest position is a retroactive change to some older Symphony instructions.
The lower portion of the Evenflo Spectrum booster seat features lap belt guides on either side of the seat, near the child’s hips. The lap belt portion of the vehicle seat belt must be routed under these belt guides. The shoulder belt portion of the seat belt may also be routed underneath the belt guide closest to the vehicle buckle. However, the shoulder belt portion helps to ensure proper fit but is not required to be routed underneath the belt guide if the seat belt fits the child appropriately.
When using the Spectrum as a high back booster the shoulder belt must be routed through the shoulder belt guide on the back portion of the booster, just above the child’s shoulders.
When using the Spectrum as a backless booster there is an optional shoulder belt clip that may be used to help position the shoulder belt properly just above the child’s shoulders.
There are six harness slot positions on the Evenflo SureRide/Titan 65 convertible car seat. The spacing of the 3rd and 4th harness slots is related to the placement of the tether in the shell of the car seat. The space also provides a visual cue to caregivers about which slots should be used in rear-facing versus forward-facing mode. As a general rule, the bottom three slots are for rear-facing use, while the upper three slots are for forward-facing use. In the United States, the lowest of the forward-facing harness slots may also be used in rear-facing mode. The car seat has been tested in these harness configurations and is appropriate for use as noted above.
As described in the car seat instructions, the harness should be placed in the slot closest to or below the child’s shoulders when in the rear-facing position. When used forward-facing, the harness should be in the slot closest to or above the child’s shoulders.
The Infinite Slide harness is Evenflo’s innovative no-rethread harness system. It can be found on the Evenflo Symphony All-In-One car seat, the Evenflo SafeMax All-In-One car seat and the Evenflo Triumph convertible car seat. This harness system raises and lowers to sit exactly at your child’s shoulders without the need to remove the car seat from the vehicle to thread the harness through a different set of harness slots. When the child sits in the seat, grasp each tab of the harness (near the child’s shoulders) and raise or lower the harness to sit on the child’s shoulders. Buckle the harness and tighten. When the child is seated in the car seat with the harness properly positioned and tightened it will not move. When the child is removed from the seat, the harness may move from its previous position.
Car seats that adjust by pulling a strap at the front of the car seat between the child’s legs, generally adjust more smoothly when pulling in a downward motion. However, when installed in a rear-facing position, it can be harder to pull downward on the strap. Try these steps:
Place your child in the seat and buckle the harness.Pull the chest clip out towards you. This will tighten the harness across the child’s legs and gather all of the slack towards the shoulders.Next, pull the strap between the child’s legs to remove the slack. Make sure the chest clip does not slide up towards the child’s face.Position the chest clip at armpit level and check the harness for tightness by pinching at the child’s shoulders.
Additionally, if your car seat features an adjustable headrest, make sure the headrest is positioned above the harness slot being used by the child.
Many Evenflo convertible car seats have adjustment built into the harness system to allow the harness to properly adjust for infants as well as larger children. When using a convertible car seat for an infant, you may need to shorten the harness in order to get the appropriate fit for the child. To do so, turn the car seat around and remove each side of the harness from the metal splitter plate behind the car seat. The harness has two pockets for the splitter plate. One on the end for older children which allows the child to use all of the harness webbing. A second pocket shortens the harness to better fit small infants. When you reattach the harness webbing to the splitter plate, make sure it is properly reattached. Please thoroughly review your car seat instructions for additional details and images about this installation.
Many Evenflo car seats utilize a continuous harness system – which means the harness is comprised of one long piece of harness webbing. If one side of the harness is tightening more than the other side, try the following steps to adjust:
Place the child in the car seat and buckle.Pull the strap between the child’s legs to tighten the harness.Grasp the harness webbing near the child’s hips. Push webbing from the side that is too loose and pull towards the side that is too tight.Grasp the chest clip and pull out towards you to determine if the two sides are once again equal. Continue maneuvering webbing near the child’s hips if needed to balance the harness.Pull the strap between the child’s legs to tighten the harness.Position the chest clip at armpit level and check the harness for tightness by pinching at the child’s shoulders.
This adjustment method will only work for Evenflo car seats that have a front-adjust manual rethread harness. This method will not work for car seats that include Evenflo’s Infinite Slide™ (no rethread) harness system, infant car seats that adjust from the rear of the car seat, or harness systems that have an anchor point near the child’s hips.
The Evenflo SecureKid features an adjustable headrest. Make sure the headrest is positioned above the harness slot that your child is using. If the headrest is adjusted too low and sitting on top of the harness webbing it will be more difficult to properly tighten the harness.
The Evenflo Symphony car seat features the Infinite Slide no-rethread harness system and an adjustable headrest. As your child grows, you will need to raise the headrest up to expose more of the track for the Infinite Slide harness. If your child’s shoulders are above the tallest harness adjustment with the headrest fully extended, then she has outgrown the car seat in harnessed mode and you may be able to begin to use the seat as a belt-positioning booster.
The Evenflo Chase has cup holders that are attached with a screw. The cup holders need to be used when the car seat is installed in a vehicle. However, there are small caps that can be used to replace the cup holders, if needed.
The Evenflo Maestro and SecureKid car seats also have cup holders that may be replaced with the small caps, if needed.
Please contact ParentLink at 1-800-233-5921 (U.S.) or 1-937-773-3971 (Canada), Monday - Friday, 8 am - 5 pm (EST) to inquire about the replacement caps and how to remove the cup holders.
Generally, car seats and booster seats can be safely installed in rear-seating positions next to side curtain air bags. It is important to consult your vehicle owner’s manual to ensure there are no restrictions in the seating position that you want to use for your car seat installation. In addition to your vehicle owner’s manual, your car seat instructions will include detailed information about any air bag interaction concerns.
Evenflo permits contact between front vehicle seats and its rear-facing convertible or all-in-one car seats. However, the car seat should not be wedged in and should be installed in accordance with both the car seat instructions and the vehicle owner’s manual. Unlike its convertible seats, however, Evenflo does require 1.5 inches of clearance between a front vehicle seat and any of its rear-facing only infant car seats.
Rear-facing infant, convertible or all-in-one car seats must be properly reclined according to the level indicator provided by the car seat manufacturer. Many car seats come with adjustment mechanisms to attain the appropriate recline.
While Evenflo’s rear-facing car seats do have adjustment mechanisms, Evenflo does allow the use of a rolled towel or pool noodle to adjust the recline of a rear-facing car seat to meet the required angle as noted by the angle indicator, as outlined below:
- Rear-facing only models: If the adjustment on the base of the car seat does not provide enough recline, store the adjustment mechanism and replace with rolled towels or pool noodles.
- Convertible and all-in-one models: The car seat must be adjusted to the appropriate rear-facing position. If more recline is needed the rolled towel or pool noodles can be added in addition to the recline mechanism of the car seat.
Always thoroughly review and follow the instructions that came with your car seat for complete installation information.
The recline foot must be placed in the recline position when the SureRide/Titan 65 convertible car seat is installed in rear-facing mode, but as long as a tight installation can be achieved in keeping with the instructions, the recline foot does not need to be in contact with any part of the vehicle seat. If needed to assist with achieving the appropriate recline angle, you may use a rolled towel or pool noodle under the front portion of the car seat, near the recline foot.
This guidance also applies to the Evenflo Sonus, Sonus 65 and Stratos convertible car seats when installed in rear-facing mode.
It is okay to have empty space between a forward-facing harnessed car seat and the vehicle seat if you have followed the car seat manufacturer’s instructions and achieved a tight installation. If you are experiencing this situation with an Evenflo car seat and want to eliminate the gap, however, try one or more of the following:
1. Remove the vehicle seat headrest, if approved by your manufacturer. Removing the headrest will often allow more of the car seat to be in contact with the vehicle seat back. Remember to properly store your headrest when it is removed. Check your vehicle owner’s manual for specific instructions.
2. Recline the vehicle seat, if approved by your manufacturer. Slightly reclining the vehicle seat back may allow more of the car seat to be in contact with the vehicle seat. Check your vehicle owner’s manual for specific instructions.
3. Use the car seat tether. If your vehicle has tether anchor hardware, you should always use a tether with a forward-facing car seat installation anyway. The tether can help improve the car seat’s performance in a crash.
Check your work. The car seat should not move more than 1” from side-to-side or front-to-back when checking at the belt path (the location where the seat belt or lower anchors are attaching the car seat to the vehicle).
Generally, most Evenflo car seats allow approximately 20% of the bottom of the car seat to hang over the front of the vehicle seat. The majority of the bottom of the car seat (80%) should be supported by the vehicle seat. This applies whether the car seat is installed rear-facing, forward-facing or in booster mode, and whether installed with the vehicle seat belt system or the lower anchor system.
There are exceptions to this general rule. When installed in rear-facing mode, the following car seats require the entire bottom of the car seat to be supported by the vehicle seat, as noted in the image below.
- Evenflo SureRide/Titan 65
- Evenflo Stratos
- Evenflo Sonus 65
- Evenflo Sonus
- Evenflo Titan 50 (discontinued)
- Evenflo Tribute
In some minivans with optional second row center seats, you may find that the car seat bottom actually overhangs the side of the vehicle seat. In this situation, the same general guidance provided above applies—at least 80% of the bottom of the seat must be supported by the vehicle, with the exception of the car seats listed above in rear-facing mode, where the entire bottom of the seat must be supported.
A convertible or "All in One" car seat would be recommended. These seats generally have a higher rear-facing weight limit and can be used for a longer period of time.
Many Evenflo car seats come with positioning inserts, which should be used per the instructions in your car seat manual. Using the insert that came with your car seat, if available, may help eliminate the gap between your child and the crotch buckle.
If the positioning insert does not eliminate the gap, or if your car seat did not come with an optional positioning insert, you may use a small wash cloth to help fill in this gap with Evenflo rear-facing car seats. To use: place your child in the car seat, buckle and tighten the harness so that you cannot pinch any webbing when testing at the child’s shoulders. Once tightened, slide the wash cloth in the gap between your child and the crotch buckle.
If needed, you may also use tightly rolled receiving blankets placed next to your child to center him/her in the car seat. The positioning blankets should never be placed under the child, between the child and the harness, or near a child’s mouth, face and neck.
In many vehicles the center seating position is narrower than the outboard seating positions (near the windows). In most situations, you may use a booster seat in that seating location, however there are a few items you should consider. First, the vehicle manufacturer must not specifically disallow this seating position for car seat or booster seat use. Second, the location of the lap portion of the seat belt and the buckle should not be coming from behind or beneath the booster seat. It is okay for the lap portion of the seat belt and the buckle to be in direct contact with the booster seat. Finally, belt fit is the most important consideration for booster seat use. Always check your child for appropriate belt fit in any seating position where you use the booster seat.
Harness covers are provided with some Evenflo car seats. For models not sold with harness covers, they are available for purchase from ParentLink for the following models:
- Chase combination car seat (model numbers beginning 306)
- Maestro combination car seat
- SecureKid combination car seat
- SureRide/Titan 65 convertible car seat
- Embrace infant car seat
- LiteMax infant car seat
- SafeMax infant car seat
- Sonus convertible car seat
- Sonus 65 convertible car seat
- Stratos convertible car seat
- ransitions/Evolve/SafeMax 3-in-1 combination car seat
Only those harness covers provided by Evenflo should be used with these seats. Please contact ParentLink at 1-800-233-5921 (U.S.) or 1-937-773-3971 (Canada), Monday - Friday, 8 am - 5 pm (EST) to inquire about harness covers.
Seats sold in the US may not comply with all Canadian requirements and, for that reason, do not have the required Maple Leaf sticker.
The Evenflo SafeMax is an All-in-One car seat, accommodating children from birth through booster. Rear-facing it can be used for infants and young children from 5 – 40 lbs (19 – 40 in). Safety advocates recommend that children ride rear-facing as long as possible. Forward-facing, the Evenflo SafeMax All-in-One can be used for children at least one year old and 22 – 65 lbs (28 – 50 in). Finally, in high back booster mode this car seat can be used for children at least four years old and from 40 – 120 lbs (44 – 57 in).
While Evenflo instructions allow for the cupholder to be used in convertible and all-in-one car seats in a forward-facing installation, the cupholders should never be used rear-facing installations. Use of the cupholders when the car seat is installed rear-facing may cause injury to your child in a crash.
Frontal crashes are the most common type of vehicle collision. In a frontal crash, all objects in the vehicle are propelled forward towards the point of impact. Accordingly, the contents of the cupholder may be forced out and propelled toward the front of the vehicle. If your child is rear-facing at the time of the crash, the contents of the cup and the cup itself will move towards your child. Conversely, when using the cupholder in a forward-facing installation, those items will be propelled away from your child towards the front of the vehicle.
Additionally, because they could be projectiles in a crash, hard objects and hot liquids should never be placed in the cupholder. Use only light weight items, like juice bags or boxes.
In the United States, the Evenflo LiteMax allows two carry handle positions for use while traveling in a vehicle. Position 1 (upright) is the carry position, but may also be used during vehicle travel. Position 3 (behind the child’s head) is the travel position, as referenced in the manual. Obviously, this may also be used during vehicle travel.
In Canada, only Position 1 (upright) is approved for use in the vehicle.
Using Position 1 as an acceptable handle position for vehicle travel in the United States is a retroactive change to some older LiteMax and SafeMax infant car seat instructions.
To fold the recline stand of the SureRide/Titan 65 convertible car seat, follow these steps:
1. Place the car seat on the floor with the backside of the car seat facing upwards and the recline foot facing towards you.
Pull the plastic call of the car seat shell away from the locking tab of the recline stand with your fingers, as your thumbs push the recline stand away from you.
3. Rotate the recline stand away from you until it lies flat.
Some recline lines are molded into the car seat shell. On those models, you can use white chalk or a white permanent marker (ex: China marker) on the line to help it stand out from the surrounding shell of the car seat.
Belt-positioning booster seats are designed to raise the child up and help to position the vehicle lap and shoulder belt correctly. When a child is properly positioned in a belt-positioning booster seat so that the vehicle restraint system can be used, the child’s risk of injury in all types of crashes is reduced. In the event of a crash, the vehicle seat belt system provides all of the crash protection for a child in a belt positioning booster seat. Because a seat belt extender modifies the existing vehicle seat belt system, it should be approved for use by the vehicle manufacturer prior to use with a booster seat.
Most padding can be laundered in cold water, delicate cycle. Dry on low heat for 10 minutes and allow to air dry. Please consult your instruction manual for specific laundering instructions.
Evenflo has established a rear-facing height limit of 40” for the Symphony All-in-One car seat. This change is retroactive. As long as your car seat has not expired, you may continue to use your Symphony All-in-One car seat in the rear-facing position until the child reaches 40 inches, 40 lbs or the top of their head is within one inch of the top of the car seat headrest in either of the two lowest positions. Once your child exceeds any one of these size requirements, she can no longer use this car seat in the rear-facing position. Please note that these size ranges for rear-facing use generally include children up to three years old.
First, consider whether your child should be moved back to a rear-facing car seat, which often provide additional recline and may help prevent your child’s head from falling forward. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that children remain rear-facing until they are 2 years old, or they meet the upper height and weight limits of their rear-facing car seat. Next, if you decide to keep your child forward-facing – check to see if his/her car seat offers a recline option, which may help keep your child’s head resting on the restraint. Many forward-facing car seats offer a mechanism to provide a semi-recline for installation. Be sure to check your instruction manual for weight restrictions and proper use of this car seat feature. Finally, if allowed by the vehicle manufacturer, the vehicle seat can be slightly reclined when installing the car seat. Reclining the vehicle seat may also help keep your child’s head resting on the restraint. The installation instructions of both the vehicle and car seat manufacturer must be followed and you must be able to achieve a secure and correct installation.
The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that children remain rear facing until they are 2 years old. The Evenflo Embrace car seat will accommodate a child rear facing up to 35 pounds. For children that do not meet the size limitations for this infant seat please see our Evenflo convertible or All in One car seats on this website which may accommodate a larger child rear facing.
All Evenflo car seats expire 6 years following their date of manufacture, with a few exceptions: the Symphony car seat line expires 8 years after the date of manufacture, because it is an all-in-one car seat with extended use from infant seat through belt-positioning booster. The Evenflo Transitions and Evenflo Evolve 3-in-1 combination car seats also expire 8 years after the date of manufacture due to their extended use from harnessed car seat through no back booster. Safety standards change over time as restraint technology develops. Expiration dates help ensure that you are not using a car seat that may be secondhand, has been in an accident or has missing or damaged parts; plus, an expiration date provides a gentle reminder that it is time to buy a new seat with the latest technology and safety features. Please refer to your Evenflo car seat’s date of manufacture (DOM) label to tell you exactly when your seat will expire.
Lead is a naturally-occurring element and small amounts may be contained in some of the metal parts. Steel - the most commonly recycled material in the world - often has trace amounts of lead in it. Evenflo car seats are tested to ensure that any lead is well below the limit set up by the federal government for use in children's products. The lead in Evenflo's products either cannot be contacted by the child at any time or cannot be extracted from the product without submerging the product in an acid bath.
Evenflo car seats are tested to ensure that any lead is well below the limit set up by the federal government for use in children's products.
The limit for lead in children's products is 300 parts per million, which is often written as "300 ppm." To help put that in perspective, 300 parts per million is less than ¼ teaspoon per gallon. Evenflo car seats have lead levels much lower than that.
Evenflo and its outside labs use XRF equipment to sample its products. Evenflo also conducts more precise chemical extraction tests at third-party laboratories on a regular basis. Evenflo's test program, which meets the federal standard, ensures that the lead levels in its products are as low as is technologically possible.
Evenflo does not use chlorine in the fabrication of its car seats.
Bromine is an element - like oxygen and carbon - and is used in the formulation of many types of fire retardant chemicals.
We meet the FMVSS 302 flammability standard, which provides limits on the type and amount of chemicals that can be used in flame retardants.
We meet the FMVSS 302 flammability standard, which provides limits on the type and amount of chemicals that can be used in flame retardants.
We meet the FMVSS 302 flammability standard, which provides limits on the type and amount of chemicals that can be used in flame retardants.
Evenflo car seats meet government standards and are tested even further than required. Evenflo tests all of our car seats to energy levels approximately twice that of the federal crash test standard. Additionally, our engineers developed the Evenflo Side Impact test protocol which simulates the energy in severe 5-star government side impact tests conducted for automobiles. Now Evenflo is leading the industry by incorporating a dynamic rollover crash test.
The Evenflo SafeMax All-in-One car seat incorporates safety features designed and focused on occupant protection. The SafeZone Headrest is engineered with a combination of premium materials that are designed to absorb and dissipate crash forces, providing advanced protection where your child needs it most. An integrated steel frame provides strength to absorb crash forces, while the harness webbing helps limit head excursion and prevent ejection.

In rear-facing mode, there are four recline positions available. Simply pull out the recline handle to adjust to one of these four positions. Look for the recline angle indicator on the upper left-hand side of your car seat and ensure the colors on the indicator are in the correct zone for your child’s size.
In forward-facing mode, there are two recline positions available. Pull out the recline handle and adjust to one of these positions. NOTE: Position 5 may only be used for children weighing more than 40 lb (18 kg).
In booster mode, ONLY the most upright position (Position 6) may be used.
Yes! For your convenience, the soft goods on your All4One or All4One DLX — including seat pad, headrest pad, back pad, head pillow, body pillow, harness covers and buckle cover — are washable. Machine wash separately in cold water on delicate cycle. Do not use chlorine bleach. Tumble dry on low heat for 10 – 15 minutes.
Absolutely! The All4One comes equipped with the EasyClick lower anchor system for a rock-solid installation, allowing you to easily tighten and secure the car seat in your vehicle. It may be used at all times in rear-facing mode and for a child weighing up to 40 lb (18 kg) in forward-facing mode. Remember to ALWAYS use the tether in forward-facing harness mode installations.
Yes! Should you require more recline to adjust the seat to the correct zone for your child’s weight, you may place a tightly rolled towel or pool noodle beneath the front edge of the child restraint. To begin, there are four recline positions available to you in rear-facing mode. Pull out the recline handle and adjust to one of these four positions. Look for the recline angle indicator on the upper left-hand side of the car seat and ensure the colors on the indicator are in the correct zone for your child’s size — only add a pool noodle or towel if you need to achieve the correct zone for your child.
To ensure a secure installation of your All4One or All4One DLX Car Seat, grab the car seat at the belt path (where you have secured the car seat to the vehicle). Try to push/pull the car seat front- to-back and side-to side. If you can move the car seat more than 1 in. (2.5 cm) in either direction, the installation is not tight enough and you must try to tighten the car seat again. If it still moves more than 1 in. (2.5 cm), you will need to change seating positions or installation methods. NOTE: In rear-facing mode, it is important to check the car seat near the child’s feet at the rear-facing belt path, and not at the top of the car seat near their head.
Yes. There are two buckle positions available. The inner slot is used for children in rear-facing mode, or children using the seat in forward-facing mode who weigh less than 30 lb (13.6 kg). The outer slot is used for children in forward-facing mode who weigh more than 30 lb (13.6 kg).
To use this car seat in booster mode, your child must meet all of the minimum requirements for age, weight and height. Booster mode is appropriate for children at least 4 years of age, weighing 40 to 120 lb, and measuring from 44 to 57 in. tall. Your child must also be mature enough to sit on the booster seat correctly without putting the seat belt system under their arm or behind their back.
Make sure the buckle is unbuckled and the LATCH system is detached from storage before removing the booster base. For more help, please contact our ParentLink Consumer Resource Center at 1-800-233-5921 and any of our representatives will be happy to assist you.
No. The shoulder belt clip is optional. When your All4One or All4One DLX Car Seat is in backless booster mode, the shoulder belt clip may be used to adjust the vehicle shoulder belt for a better fit on your child. If the vehicle shoulder belt already crosses your child’s shoulder in the correct location you do not need to use the shoulder belt clip.
Yes. In backless booster mode, the insert for your All4One or All4One DLX Car Seat MUST be installed for your child’s safety.
The headrest flap is designed with two fold lines to allow for partial or full storage behind the headrest pad. In the lowest headrest position, fully fold the headrest flap and make sure the flap lies flat behind the pad. As your child grows and you raise the headrest to accommodate their height, you can begin to unfold the headrest flap.
No. The tether for your All4One or All4One DLX Car Seat is necessary ONLY in forward-facing harness mode and must not be used in rear-facing mode.
Yes. Your All4One or All4One DLX Car Seat may be used on an aircraft in rear-facing or forward facing harnessed modes only. You may NOT use the All4One in booster mode on an aircraft, because booster mode requires a lap and shoulder belt which are not available on most aircraft. NOTE: If the car seat is equipped with SensorSafe, tighten the harness around your child and then unfasten the chest clip. In order to comply with the FAA regulation for Portable Electronic Devices, the SensorSafe chest clip must remain unfastened during take-off and landing
Evenflo allows the use of the Evenflo car seat mat accessory underneath the All4One in all installation modes. You can also place a towel beneath and behind the car seat to help protect your vehicle upholstery.
The All4One DLX Car Seat is GREENGUARD® Gold Certified for meeting low chemical emissions standards to create a healthier environment for your child.
The width stays the same. The depth is approximately 29.5" and the height is approximately 20.5".
The All4One and All4One DLX will accommodate a child’s seated height up to approximately 18".
You can locate your seat’s FAA compliance label underneath
the seat pad.
LATCH storage is easy! Just attach the lower anchor/UAS connectors to your vehicle’s lower anchor bars. Do not use EasyClick to tighten, as it may push the booster away from your vehicle’s seat back.
In order to adjust the crotch buckle of the Evenflo EveryKid or EveryFit 4-in-1 car seat you will need to start by removing the booster base from the bottom of the car seat. Once the booster base is removed, you will be able to access underneath the seat where the buckle anchor is located. Turn the anchor to remove from one slot and place into the other slot. Please refer to the product instructions for details on when to change the buckle position.
It does help to remove a portion of the seat pad when installing your car seat so you can better access the seat belt or lower anchor strap. When installing your EveryKid or EveryFit in rear-facing mode, instead of detaching the portion of the seat pad near your child's feet, detach the seat pad from the back of the seating area. The back portion of the seat pad lifts up to expose the white handle for removing the booster base. The back corners are held down by small elastic loops. Remove the elastic loops and you can lift the entire seat pad towards the front of the car seat. Removing the seat pad from around the crotch buckle allows access to the entire rear-facing belt path.
When your installation is complete, route the crotch buckle through the appropriate slot in the seat pad and reattach the back corners of the seat pad with the small elastic loops.
When checking for a tight installation, it is important to test the car seat right where you have it installed to the vehicle. For a rear-facing car seat, that means you will grab the car seat near your child's feet and not near their head. While holding the car seat near the installation area, try to move the car seat side to side and front to back. The car seat should not move more than one inch in any direction.
If the car seat moves more than one inch when checking at the belt path, you have a few options:
1. Try to tighten the installation again.
2. Try a different seating position in the vehicle.
3. Try a different installation method, if possible.

The Evenflo EveryFit/EveryKid meets or exceeds all applicable Federal motor vehicle safety standards and Evenflo's internal testing standards. These products do not have a steel frame, but are made of robust plastic sufficient to withstand numerous dynamic tests. The Evenflo EveryFit/EveryKid are engineered to manage crash energy appropriately without the addition of a steel frame. This allows the car seat to be lightweight, making it easier to move between vehicles.
The Pivot Xplore can be run through most TSA scanners without having to go through special security lines. Most airlines will allow you to push your Pivot Xplore to the gate. There, you can fold it into its most compact and easy-to-handle size. The airline staff will place the Pivot Xplore in the general luggage compartment of the plane. Please contact your airline for specific information. Our warranty is not valid for damage sustained during air travel.
The Pivot Xplore is designed for children 6 months to 5 years of age. Each seat holds a child up to 55 lbs.
In our testing, the Pivot Xplore pulls and pushes well on hard, packed sand. When sand is moderately packed, pull mode will be easiest. If you are trying to traverse deep loose sand with a heavy payload, it may be a bit more difficult. Pulling the Pivot Xplore is recommended on uneven terrain like beaches, snow or trails.
The tires are made of a durable polyurethane material that are stronger than your typical stroller, making it easier to navigate various terrains.
Please remember to clean any sand or snow off your Pivot Xplore after use to keep it running smoothly.
To clean minor spills and stains on cloth or plastic surfaces, use cold water and mild soap. Metal and plastic parts can be wiped clean with a soft damp cloth and dried with a soft cloth. DO NOT use abrasive cleaners or solvents. Air dry.
