WARNING:
To reduce the risk of serious injury
or death, read this owner’s manual prior
to installing and using this child restraint.

More children are killed every year as passengers in car
crashes than by any other type of injury.
To reduce the risk of SERIOUS INJURY or DEATH, read this
owner’s manual and your vehicle owner’s manual before
installing and using this child restraint. Using a child restraint
makes a big difference. By properly using this child restraint
and following these instructions (and the instructions that
accompany your vehicle), you will greatly reduce the risk of
serious injury or death to your child from a crash. Do not be
misled by the commonly used term “safety seat;” no restraint
system can prevent all injuries in all crashes. Many properly
restrained adults and children are injured in motor vehicle
crashes, including relatively minor crashes. A properly used child
restraint is the best way to minimize injuries to your child and to
increase the chances for your child’s survival in most crashes.

U.S. REGULATORY NOTICE
This child restraint meets all applicable requirements of
Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard 213.
CANADIAN REGULATORY NOTICE
(Model numbers ending in “C.”)
This child restraint meets all applicable requirements of
Canadian Motor Vehicle Safety Standards CMVSS 213
and 213.1.
Child Requirements
• No restraint can guarantee absolute protection from
injury in every crash.
• This child restraint is designed for use by children in
rear-facing and forward-facing positions. To use this
child restraint properly, children MUST meet weight/size
specifications as follows:
For Rear-facing Use
• 2.3 to 18 kg (5 to 40 lbs)
• 48 to 102 cm (19 to 40 inches)
• Top of head is at least 25 mm (1 inch) below
the top of the child restraint seat back.
The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that
children ride in the rear-facing position to
the highest weight or height allowed by the child
restraint.
Note: Once your child exceeds 18 kg (40 lbs) OR
the top of their head is within 25 mm (1 inch)
of the top of the child restraint seat back, you
MUST use this child restraint in the
forward-facing position.
For Forward-facing Use
• 10 to 29.4 kg (22 to 65 lbs)
• 71 to 137 cm (28 to 54 inches) AND the tops of the
child’s ears are at or below the child restraint seat back.
• At least one year of age
Note: Once your child exceeds 29.4 kg (65 lbs)
OR is taller than 137 cm (54 inches), they can no
longer safely use this child restraint, and you
should consider using a booster seat.

PREMATURE INFANT USE
WARNING
Before using this child restraint for preterm or low birth
weight infants you must read and follow the guidelines in
this section.
According to the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety
Administration, a properly installed child restraint
reduces the risk of death by over 70 percent for infants
involved in crashes. Federal Motor Vehicle Safety
Standard (FMVSS) 213 establishes design and dynamic
performance requirements for child restraint systems.
However, the standard has no minimum weight limit
and does not address the special medical needs of
preterm or low-birth weight infants. To ensure that
preterm and low-birth weight infants are transported
safely, the guidelines published by the American
Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) in Pediatrics 2009; 123:
1424–1429 must be followed.
All children should ride rear-facing in the vehicle as
long as possible. Preterm and low-birth weight infants
are at additional risk of breathing difficulties and heart
problems when placed in a child restraint. Evenflo
requires that the evaluation recommended by the AAP
be conducted for all infants born earlier than 37 weeks
and all newborn infants who weigh less than 5 pounds
at birth before their first car trip to check for breathing
difficulties or heart rate problems when traveling in a
rear-facing child restraint.
The AAP recommends that appropriate hospital staff
observe your infant in the child restraint for a period of
90 to 120 minutes or the duration of travel, whichever
is longer. This period of observation must be performed
with the infant properly positioned as described in these
instructions and with the child restraint placed at an
angle that is approved for use in the vehicle. The
hospital staff will check for any breathing difficulties or
heart rate problems. Your child’s pediatrician will let you
know if there are any special considerations for travel.
The number of trips and the duration of time the infant
is seated in the child restraint should be minimized. A
caregiver should ride in the back seat to monitor the
infant during travel.
You can learn more about the AAP’s recommendations
for observation of newborns and the guidelines for safe
transportation of preterm and low-birth weight infants,
as well as other resources for parents and medical
professionals, at
http://www.aap.org/healthtopics/carseatsafety.cfm.
Air Bag Warnings
• DO NOT use this child restraint in the front seat of a
vehicle equipped with an air bag, unless the air bag has
been deactivated. Air bags may cause serious injury or
death to children under 12. If your vehicle has an air
bag, please refer to your vehicle owner’s manual for child
restraint installation.
• If the rear seat of your vehicle is equipped with side air
bags, refer to the following information for proper usage:
Vehicles built prior to the 2002 model year: DO
NOT use this restraint in a vehicle seating position
equipped with a side air bag unless authorized by the
vehicle manufacturer.
Model year 2002 and newer vehicles: Refer to your
vehicle owner’s manual before placing this restraint in a
seating position equipped with a side air bag. DO NOT
place any objects between the restraint and the side air
bag, as an expanding air bag may cause the items to
strike your child.

WARNING
WARNING
General Warnings
Location Warnings – continued
Rear-facing and Forward-facing Use
• Failure to follow installation instructions can result in
the child striking the vehicle’s interior during a sudden
stop or crash. Serious injury or death may result. These
instructions and the instructions in your vehicle owner’s
manual must be followed carefully. If there is a conflict
between the two, the vehicle owner’s manual regarding
child restraint installation must be followed.
• NEVER leave child unattended.
• Children have STRANGLED in loose or partially
buckled harness straps. Fully restrain the child.
Rear-facing and Forward-facing Use
• ONLY use this child restraint on vehicle seats with backs
that lock into place.
WARNING
Children have STRANGLED
in loose or partially buckled
harness straps. Fully restrain
the child.
• DO NOT use child restraint if it is damaged, broken,
or missing parts.
• DO NOT use this restraint if it has been involved in a
crash. It must be replaced.
Location Warnings
Rear-facing, Forward-facing Use
• ALWAYS read and follow exactly the instructions that
accompany your vehicle and child restraint.
• According to statistics, children are safer when properly
restrained in a rear seating position than in the front
seating position. Generally, the center rear position is
safest and should be used if available.
• Some child restraints do not fit all vehicles or all seating
locations. There are many thousands of combinations
of vehicle makes, models, child restraint configurations,
vehicle seat belt designs, and seat cushion shapes. The
easiest way to determine whether your child restraint is
suitable for a particular seating position is to check for a
tight installation. If the child restraint cannot be properly
installed, DO NOT use the child restraint. Consult vehicle
owner’s manual, try a different seating location, or call
Evenflo for further assistance.
• ONLY use this child restraint on forward-facing
vehicle seats. DO NOT use this restraint with
vehicle seats that face the rear or side.
4
Premature Infants
Rear-facing and Forward-facing Use
• DO NOT use this or any child restraint with a
premature infant until after consulting your doctor.
Premature infants may have difficulty breathing when
in a seated or semi-reclined position. Using additional
padding or pillows behind the infant’s head or failing
to properly recline the child restraint could increase the
child’s risk of serious injury or death.
Rear-facing Position Warnings
Rear-facing Use Only
• When using this restraint rear-facing, DO NOT loosen
the vehicle seat belt to provide more leg room, as this will
prevent the child restraint from protecting the child.
• DO NOT use the highest set of harness slots rear-facing.
The harness will not properly restrain the child during a
crash.
• Fold-down armrests could pose a hazard to a rearfacing child in certain types of collisions. Consult your
vehicle owner’s manual before installing any rear-facing
child restraint in front of a fold-down armrest.
• NEVER turn a child restraint forward-facing with an
infant who weighs less than 10 kg (22 lbs) or is less than
one year of age. Crash forces may cause
serious injury or death.
• DO NOT use the tether strap when the child restraint is
in the rear-facing position.
• The headrest on the vehicle seat that the child faces
when sitting in the rear-facing mode should be placed in
the lowest position. The vehicle seat back that the child
faces must be fully padded and free of any hard objects.
Forward-facing Position Warnings
Forward-facing Use Only
• If your child weighs more than 29.4 kg (65 lbs) or their
shoulders are above the highest harness level, you MUST
discontinue using this child restraint as it may no longer
adequately protect your child.
5
WARNING
Forward-facing Position Warnings – continued
Forward-facing Use Only
• DO NOT use the lowest set of harness slots forwardfacing. The harness will not properly restrain the child
during a crash.
• Adjust, or remove, the vehicle headrest, in the seat
where the child restraint is to be installed, so that
the back of the child restraint rests against the vehicle
seat back.
• The headrest on the vehicle seat in front of the child
should be put in its lowest position. The vehicle seat back
that the child faces must be fully padded and
free of any hard objects.
Seat Belt Warnings
Rear-facing and Forward-facing Use
• DO NOT use this child restraint if it moves more than
25 mm (1 inch) side to side or front to back at either
the rear-facing or forward-facing belt path on the
child restraint. Serious injury or death may result from
poor installation. If you cannot tightly secure the child
restraint, try again or move it to another location.
• DO NOT use this child restraint in a seating position with
door-mounted seat belts.
• DO NOT use this child restraint in a vehicle with seat
belts that automatically move along the vehicle frame
when the door is opened. These seat belts will not hold a
child restraint properly.
• DO NOT use this child restraint in a vehicle equipped
with lap belts that only lock during a sudden stop or
crash (emergency locking retractor – ELR). You must use
a seating location with a locking seat belt. Check your
vehicle owner’s manual to see if you have lap belts with
ELRs.
• If the vehicle seat belts are not routed and fastened
correctly, the child restraint may not protect the child in a
crash.
• DO NOT allow the vehicle seat belt release button to
touch the child restraint. Accidental contact may cause
the seat belt to release. If necessary, turn the seat belt
release button away from the child restraint or move the
child restraint to a different location.
• Failure to adjust the harness or vehicle seat belts snugly
around the child may result in the child striking the
vehicle’s interior during a sudden stop or crash. Serious
injury or death may occur.
6
WARNING
LATCH Warnings
Rear-facing and Forward-facing Use
• Do not use the lower anchors of the child restraint
anchorage system (LATCH System) to attach this child
restraint when restraining a child weighing more than
24.9 kg (55 lbs.) with the internal harnesses of the child
restraint.
• The LATCH system is intended to be used ONLY as
described in these instructions. Serious injury or death
may result from misuse. LATCH (Lower Anchors and
Tethers for CHildren) is a system for attaching the child
restraint to your vehicle seat. It can be used in place of
the seat belts in vehicles with vehicle lower anchor bars.
Refer to your vehicle owner’s manual for the locations
of the vehicle lower anchor bars. Note: Your vehicle
owner’s manual may refer to this system as “Universal
Anchorage System,” “Lower Universal Anchorage
System,”or ”ISOFIX.”
• In addition to these instructions, read and follow your
vehicle owner’s manual regarding installation of the child
restraint and LATCH. If there is a discrepancy,
follow your vehicle owner’s manual.
• ONLY use for securing child restraint to vehicle lower
anchor bars.
• NEVER attach two lower anchor connectors to one
vehicle lower anchor bar.
• NEVER use the vehicle seat belts when using the Lower
anchor connector assembly. Using both together can
cause slack in a sudden stop or crash.
• To avoid strangulation, you must store the unused LATCH
harness, with all slack removed, in the storage area on
the back of the seat. Roll or fold the excess LATCH strap
and secure with a rubber band to prevent serious injury
to vehicle occupants.
• ALWAYS be sure that the lower anchor connectors are
attached to the vehicle lower anchor bars by pulling hard
on the lower anchor connectors. If they are not attached,
the lower anchor connector assembly will not secure your
child restraint. Serious injury or death may result.
• DO NOT use this child restraint if it moves more than
25 mm (1 inch) side to side or front to back at either
the rear-facing or forward-facing belt path on the
child restraint. Serious injury or death may result from
poor installation. If you cannot tightly secure the child
restraint, try again or move it to another location.
7
WARNING
Tether Strap Warnings
Forward-facing Use Only
• To avoid a strangulation hazard, you MUST tightly roll
or fold excess or unused tether strap and secure with a
rubber band. Attach the tether hook to the storage clip
when not in use (p. 13). This will keep an unused tether
from hitting someone during a crash.
Additional Warnings
Rear-facing and Forward-facing Use
• In hot or sunny weather, ALWAYS check the areas of the
child restraint that may contact your child (e.g., buckle,
buckle tongues, etc.) for hot areas before
placing him/her into the child restraint. The child could
be burned. Cover the child restraint with a light colored
blanket when you leave the vehicle.
• This child restraint must be securely fastened to the
vehicle, even when unoccupied, using the vehicle seat
belts or lower anchor connectors. An unsecured child
restraint may injure someone if a crash occurs.
• DO NOT use the cup holder to store cans or hard
cups. Only for use with soft cups (such as styrofoam
or paper).
• DO NOT place any cups that contain hot liquids
in the cup holder.
• DO NOT attach additional padding, toys, or other
devices not made by Evenflo or described in these
instructions for the child restraint. Items not tested
with the child restraint could injure the child.
Additional pads or pillows may interfere with the
function of the harness system, or cause breathing
problems if the child’s head falls forward, increasing the
risk of serious injury or death.
• Failure to follow installation instructions could result
in serious injury or death. These instructions and the
instructions in your vehicle owner’s manual must be
followed carefully. If there is a conflict between the two,
the vehicle owner’s manual regarding child
restraint installation must be followed.
8
WARNING
Additional Warnings– cont.
• In cold weather, DO NOT dress the child in bulky clothing
like snowsuits if the child is riding in a child restraint.
Bulky coats/snowsuits make it difficult to properly tighten
the harness to the child, which may allow the child to be
ejected from the restraint during a crash. If necessary,
place a blanket over the harnessed child without
interfering with the child restraint harness system.
Safe Practices
• Everyone rides buckled up or the vehicle does not
go. Make no exceptions for adults or children. If someone
unbuckles, stop the vehicle. Being firm and consistent
from the start will mean fewer discipline problems as
children get older. An unrestrained person can be thrown
into and injure other passengers.
• Many safety advocates and healthcare professionals
recommend that children ride rear-facing for as long as
possible. See limitations recommended on rear-facing use
on the inside front cover.
• NEVER try to tend to a crying baby’s needs while driving.
NEVER take a baby out of a child restraint for comforting
while the vehicle is moving.
• DO NOT allow a child in a vehicle to have objects such
as lollipops or ice cream on a stick. The object can injure
the child if the vehicle swerves or hits a bump.
• DO NOT feed an infant who is riding in a child restraint.
• Put sharp or heavy items in the trunk. Anything loose can
be deadly in a crash.

Securing Your Child Restraint in
Aircraft
The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) recommends
that you secure your child for air travel in an appropriate child restraint based on your child’s weight and size.
Turbulence can happen with little or no warning. When
turbulence occurs, the safest place for your child is
in a properly installed child restraint, not in an
adult’s lap or on the aircraft seat with its seat belt.
Keeping your child in a child restraint during the flight will
help ensure your family arrives safely at your destination.

The FAA recommends that a child weighing:
• more than 18 kg (40 lbs) use an aircraft seat belt;
• less than 9 kg (20 lbs) use a rear-facing child restraint;
and
• from 9 to 18 kg (20 to 40 lbs) use a forward-facing
child restraint.
Please note that these FAA recommendations
may vary from those applicable to the use of
your child restraint in a motor vehicle.
IMPORTANT
You must use the internal harness when installing the child
restraint in aircraft.

Seat Belt
The aircraft seat belt A must be as tight as possible. Route
the excess seat belt strap D back through the rear-facing
belt path B opening, as shown above. Using your full
weight, push the child restraint firmly onto the aircraft
seat while pulling on the excess seat belt strap to tighten.
Check your work. Reconnect the seat pad to the front of
the child restraint. Try to move the child restraint in all
directions. If you can move the restraint more than
25 mm (1 inch) from side to side or front to back at the
rear-facing belt path B, the aircraft seat belt A is not
tight enough, and you MUST install again until the seat
belt is tight.
Adjust the child restraint to its upright position (page 36),
then place it on the aircraft seat forward-facing, as shown
above.

The aircraft seat belt must be as tight as possible. Route
the excess aircraft seat belt strap C back through the
forward-facing belt path D opening, as shown above.
Using your full weight, push the child restraint firmly onto
the aircraft seat while pulling on the excess seat belt strap
to tighten.
Note: Because of the fixed length of aircraft seat belts, the belt
buckle could be behind the child’s back after tightening the
belt. For your child’s comfort, Evenflo recommends cushioning
the child’s back by placing a small pillow or folded-up blanket,
or a folded-up jacket, over the belt buckle.
Check your work. Reconnect the seat pad to the front
of the child restraint. Try to move the child restraint in all
directions. If you can move the restraint more than 25 mm
(1 inch) from side to side or front to back at the forwardfacing belt path, the aircraft seat belt is not tight enough,
and you MUST install again until the seat belt is tight.
