Question about Evenflo Express

Adjusting chest clip?

We bought our Evenflo Express secondhand, so it didn't come with a manual. When my almost-2-year-old son sits in the seat, the chest clip comes up rather high on him, almost to his neck. I can't seem to get it to go down any further because the adjustment mechanism is in the way on his right side. It doesn't seem safe but I don't know how to fix it. Can anyone help?

Hi, how do i attach the belt clip that comes with the evenflo booster seat?

If it is the one that is on the end of a strap, at the end of the strap is a loop.
Feed the loop thru a small set of holes in the back of the seat. The seat should have 2 small, close to eachother, holes. It goes in one, out the other and then slide the clip thru the loop and pull it back tight.
The only other design I know of uses a screw to attach the belt, the clip is on, to to a nub with a hole in
it on the back of the car seat.
If by "clip" you mean the little bracket that looks like an "H" you thread the car's seat belt thru it, where the belt goes up to the highest point, and use the H clip to keep that part of the car's seat belt away from the child and car seat by weaving it behind the edge of the car seat.

How do you remove the cover and belts on an evenflo car seat with this number on the side 25801158?

Turn the booster seat around to the back and locate the metal splitter plate that the harness is attached to. Remove both harness straps from the splitter plate. Locate the TensionRight knob located on each side of the seat in the front by the baby’s foot area. Turn the TensionRight knob to the back as far as it will go to take up the slack on the splitter plate strap. Pull both harness straps through the seat back to the front of the seat. Remove the harness strap from both sides of the chest clip and from the buckle tongues. NOTE: Please leave the buckle tongues locked into the **** strap for storage. Remove the harness strap from the seat. NOTE: Reattach the chest clip to the harness strap so they don’t get lost. Turn the booster seat upside down and locate the metal harness anchor. Turn the metal anchor sideways and push it through the slot to the front of the seat.

Is it necessary to use the locking clip.

The locking clip is according to an USA standart that states that the car seat must not be oppend with one press so all american seats have the chest clip. the rational is that child cans open it.

in European standart it stated that it must be opened with one click so all Europien seats are without the chest clip. the rational is that in rescue situation child can be take out fast.
its up to you to decide what your prioreties are.
any way it is not advised to use the seat different then the manufacture specifications.

Need to get the carseat apart for cleaning

You can download the manual from evenflo web site with your model number. You will be able to remove the 2 small metal clips at the bottom of the seat by twisting it gently. Then you insert it through the slot.

How to use seat belt with seat

Here is the link to the product page for the seat; click on "demo" and you get a few videos showing how to install etc. Check this link for FAQs about the model; and this link for the full user manual; Basically what evenflo say is that if you can't teach the child not to climb out, you need a different type of booster with a traditional restraint. if thrown forward as described the belt should function as usual for an adult, assuming the belt is correctly positioned on the child. Contact evenflo on; if you have any doubts at all. They can also point you towards a qualified installer who can verify the safety or otherwise of your setup. Sorry if not great news, hope it helps keep your son safe :)
