Right now, it’s practically impossible for parents to know if car seats have been properly crash tested or to trust they will truly protect children in the event of an unfortunate collision. “The Truth aboutChild Car Seat Safety Claims.” I’m sure you will be shocked to find out that many car seat brands don’t test for side-impact collisions, since the manufacturers are not required to do so. Since 2008, Evenflo is one of the few car seat manufacturers that have been doing side impact testing across their entire product line including the #1 rated seats: Symphony All in One and Triumph Convertible. Side-impact testing simulates a crash in which the vehicle carrying the car seat is struck on the side by another vehicle. An example of a “real life” side impact collision is when a car crossing an intersection is struck on the side by another car that ran a stop sign. Parents trust car seats to protect children in the event of an accident and it’s Evenflo’s commitment to make sure that each car seat will keep a child safe.
Evenflo test at speeds that replicate the Side Impact Testing for New Car Assessment Program (SNCAP) and those of NHTSA's newly proposed side impact test protocol. Evenflo also advertises side impact testing both on the carton and on the car seat itself, so parents are aware of the level of test that are designed to keep kids safe. Since studies indicate that approximately 25% of Motor Vehicle Accidents involve a side impact component, parents can rest assure Evenflo’s car seats are designed outperform.
Isn't it great to know that Evenflo has been doing this for such a long time? For those in an Evenflo car seat rest assured that you are in one of the best!
