An important note on Evenflo car seats - Please Read

Evenflo ApolloEvenflo Portabout

The expiry date should be stamped into the plastic on the back of the seat. It should sit slightly raised, not indented. The font should match and the alignment should be relative.

The portabout also has a small series of clocks under the expiry date, there should be 4 clocks, on some of these seats the year clock has been removed. Do not buy this seat, as there is not accurate way of telling when it was made. However, Evenflo Portabout car seat capsules were last made in 2005, these seats will all have expired by the end of 2011 (Safety Belt Safe USA, Page 4, top row, Evenflo Portabout)

The Evenflo Apollo was last made in 2002, this means they will all have expired by the end of 2008. (Safety Belt Safe USA, Page 5, top row, Evenflo Apollo)

Evenflo car seats are made in USA and must display the additional yellow New Zealand "S" mark to be legally sold here.
