Evenflo reports that you should not take your seat to a retailer, instead you can get a new buckle by filling out an order with Evenflo HERE or call 1-800-490-7591 number and speak with a representative over the phone. You will need your model number and manufacturing date located on the product. I don’t know about you, but I’m not looking forward to taking our carseats out and finding this sticker, but I probably should clean under the seats anyway….I bet I’ll find a pile of clif bars and lollipop sticks.
You can find more information from Evenflo’s website HERE. The manufacturer includes a video for installation instructions and Get your orders in early and stay safe!
