REMEDY:

Evenflo is providing, at no charge, a remedy kit that will prevent child access and activation of the harness adjustment button.

To determine if your child's seat is included in this recall and to order a remedy kit, please visit www.evolve.evenflo.com or call our ParentLink Consumer Resource Center at 1-800-233-5921 (US)/ 1-800-265-0749 (Canada). Please do not return your child's seat to retailers.

  • If your child is not accessing and activating the harness adjustment button, then the Evolve may be used safely in harnessed mode until the remedy kit is installed.
  • If your child is accessing the harness adjustment button in harnessed mode, then the seat should not be used until you install the remedy kit. Please remember that if your child meets the height and weight requirements for the belt-positioning modes (stages 2 and 3), then the seat may be used safely in these modes.

Evenflo will notify registered owners and provide a remedy kit with a replacement harness adjustment button, free of charge.  The remedy kit includes a push-style harness adjustment system to replace the existing pull-style button. This change effectively eliminates the child's ability to access and activate the harness adjustment button while in the car seat.

Evenflo is conducting this voluntary recall in coordination with the U.S National Highway Traffic Safety Administration ("NHTSA").
