It’s really bad when… Evenflo can’t figure out how to properly install their own car seat
This video is supposed to be funny; Evenflo, I’m not laughing. Not one bit.
What’s funny about a Dad improperly installing his son’s (Evenflo Symphony 65 e3) car seat? He installs it forward-facing and forgets to use the tether strap – which is the most important part of a forward-facing car seat as it decreases how far the child’s head moves forward by 6-8 inches in a crash (that can mean the difference between the child’s head hitting something hard, or not).
What’s funny about a very young child (not even sure the baby is 1 year old) riding forward-facing? What’s funny about unnecessary brain and spinal cord injuries that could be prevented if the Dad had only installed the seat rear-facing? The cruel irony is that this seat has a 40 pound REAR facing weight limit specifically to allow older heavier kids to ride in the safest way possible for as long as possible.
The worst part… the Dad mocks the Mom when she suggests taking the car seat to someone trained for help with the installation.
Evenflo… I’m not amused.
