If you push down on the top of the handle you should then be able to move it. Also, to remove the straps you have to feed the bottom portion of the straps from underneath the seat up through first and then you should be able to feed through the material to remove the pad.

The PortAbout 5 was last manufactured in 2005, making it very likely the seat has expired. Contact Evenflo (800-233-5921, 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.

I don't have the model # for my evenflo comfort touch carseat. It was manufactured in 2001. I can't figure out how to reinstall the straps. Please help!

I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but this seat expired in 2007. I would strongly urge you to stop using the seat and purchase a new one.

Can't get the armrests off to clean the cover

You CAN remove the armrests- quite easily actually! All you need to do is grab a small pair of pliers. Behind each armrest are two tabs. With the pliers, pull the bottom tab out. Slide the top tab underneath the bottom. The armrest will pop right off! Which means you can wash the pad seat and all!

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.
