What to do

Evenflo will provide a free remedy kit to people who own affected seats. It includes a replacement buckle and instructions for installing the new buckle. To order this please contact Tas Baby Holdings Ltd:

Do not return these convertible car seats and harnessed boosters to retailers.

If you are having difficulty unlatching the buckle before your remedy kit arrives, cleaning the buckle should help. There are videos to show you how to fit the new buckle on this page.
