The PortAbout 5 was last manufactured in 2005, making it very likely the seat has expired. Contact Evenflo (800-233-5921, www.evenflo.com) about the expiration date and reattaching the visor (if the seat has not expired). Please DO NOT use an expired seat!
Manufacturer states that, when installing this rear facing only restraint in an outboard seating position, there should be at least 1.5" of space between the restraint, including the handle, and the
back of the front seat.
Do not remove the harness strap from the adjuster. If the harness is ever mistakenly removed, Evenflo will send a new harness with adjuster.

Was given to me without the manual. Can't attach infant seat to stroller. Not sure how to do it.


The manual on how to do this can be found at www.babytrend.com.

To attach the Baby Trend Infant Car Seat, recline
the seat all the way back.
• Position the Infant Car Seat, facing toward the
rear of the jogger, so that the seat shell goes
into the Child Tray and latches into place.
(Fig. 13a) Check that the Infant Car Seat
is firmly locked onto the Child Tray before
using.
• Check that the front Child Tray is firmly
attached to the jogger's armrests. Make sure
that the car seat locks into the front Child Tray.
Then turn tabs on stroller frame to lock the
front of the car seat into the stroller. (Fig. 13b)
• To remove the Infant Car Seat, squeeze the
release handle located at the foot-end of the
seat and carefully lift upward on the seat.

Hopefully that helps!

How to lower straps on evenflo infant carseat


You're trying to unattach the straps from the wrong end....flip the car seat over and on the very bottom there is a little gold clip that pops out and you can push through the hole.

HARNESS FOR FRONT FACING EVENFLO TITAN CHILD RESTRAINT


there is another thread on this.

Basically, locate the ends of the straps on either side of the seat. You can remove the plastic end thingy and take the strap out. Then re-thread the strap. Remember to thread it through the thin grey strap (which adjusts the tension of the main shoulder straps) as well as the little metal guide at the back of the chair.

Your problem may also be that the length-adjuster (thinner grey strap) is too tight. You can loosen it by pressing on the button located just in front of the main buckle and pulling on the shoulder straps. This is also how you tighten the shoulder straps - by pulling on the thinner grey strap.

Generally, the shoulder straps should come out around the childs shoulder level. Higher is ok. Lower is bad because it doesn't secure him in.

Need help with putting straps back on


I know this is months later, but here you are in case you (or anyone else) needs the info again. First, though, I feel that it wouldn't be responsible to neglect to tell you that if you got the seat in 2000, it is expired and no longer safe to use. Car seats generally expire after 6 years because the plastic degrades over time - in a 10 year old seat, it can look fine but actually be brittle enough that the entire harness can rip out of the seat if it's an accident. For the manual, visit Cosco's website and fill in the product number and date of manufacture. It will bring up a PDF file of the manual that you can download. To rethread the straps, first replace the **** strap. Slide the metal plate down through the slot in the seat, with the buckle facing out. Slide the metal clip under the tab and push it down to lock it in place. Facing the seat, start by threading the end of the harness strap down through the slot of the left side of the bottom (where the child's right hip would be). Under the pad/cover, thread it across the bottom of the seat and up through the matching slot on the right side. Pull it until you have equal lengths on both sides. Thread the buckles onto the the strap (one one each end) and buckle them. Thread the chest buckle onto both ends, making sure that the harness doesn't twist. Buckle it, too. Push the ends through the harness slots. Pull the harness through to the back, making sure that it goes OVER the metal bar, but UNDER the plastic adjuster handle. There is a loop sewn into each end of the harness. The adjuster strap has a splitter plate, kind of shaped like a Y. Slide each loop over the ends of the plate and all of the way into the slot, so that the curved ends of the splitter plate are exposed and the strap is secure in it's slot. Adjust the harness height by squeezing the metal bar on the back of the seat (the one behind the harness) forward and moving it and the plastic adjuster bar up or down to the correct position (at or below the shoulders for rear-facing, at or above the shoulders for forward facing). Do note that the very top slot is NOT for use with the harness - it's only to adjust the headrest when the seat is being used as a seat belt positioning booster and is not reinforced to support the harness in an accident! Adjust the tightness of the straps with the button/extra length on the front of the seat. Properly tightened straps should lay in a straight line without sagging and you should not be able to pinch up any slack (lengthwise going down the harness, not across the width of it) at the shoulders or hips. Adjust the chest buckle to lie in line with your child's armpits, never his neck or belly.

Can't put back together


Do you have a company name for this product? Graco, Cosco? If you do I can look up an online manual for you as there is most likely a diagram to make my description easier for you to visualize. At any rate you need to insert 2 of the straps (the ones with the pieces to snap into the buckle at the **** ) through the back side (aline your child with the slots to ensure correct placement. You want the belt to come out just above the shoulder) DId you take this completely apart to wash? If so you will need to slip on the chest buckle pieces as well. Hope this helps. I can help better if you are able to get back with the company name so I can get the manual for you. :)

I took the cover off to wash it but now can't figure out how to put it back on. I think it is a 5 point connection system model 8465wsr3


Its a GREAT seat! I have the same one!
Assuming you removed the harness.

The easiest way I have found to do this is , place the seat on the ground and put the cover on the seat. There are some elastic fastners that are loops on some models, that go onto small plastic poles. IF you don't have this, it is ok.


Then clip the harness together at the chest clip, and at the buckle. This helps you not get so twists.

Put each of the top shoulder straps through the hole in the seat cover AND the plastic of the shell of the seat. For this rear facing seat, the straps should be At or BELOW the shoulders of the infant riding in the seat. When both straps are through the plastic shells, you slide them onto the metal flat mushroom shaped piece on the back of the seat that is attached to the adjustor strap.

Pass the middle strap (the buckle) through the hole in the seat cover and shell. Pull to ensure it catches.
NExt, take the small metal cliped bottoms of the harness, and pass them through the seat cover and seat shell in the bottom of the seat, they are in the crease of the side/bottom of the plastic shell. Once they are passed through, give them a good pull to ensure they catch. Repeat for the other side, and you are good to go!



If you washed the harness, in the machine, it needs to be thrown out, call Graco for a replacement.

https://plweb.evenflo.com/faq_detail.aspx?faqid=4990 Question: How do I care and clean for my PortAbout 3/PortAbout V infant car seat? Answer: To clean pad slide the elastic loops of the seat pad off of the seat shell. Remove the harness system. Cloth pad, canopy, and head support may be machine washed separately cold water, delicate cycle, tumble dry 10-15 minutes, low heat. Wipe straps, buckles, and harness adjusters with warm damp cloth and mild soap. Air dry. NOTE: DO NOT submerge harness assembly in water. To help protect the vehicle upholstery, place a towel beneath and behind the child restraint.
