Evenflo Trumph... grh $#%&*($#!! castaway 2 kids; Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania 18783 posts

We bought two evenflo triumphs for little man since it was time to abandon the infant carrier.




They made the damed tether straps soooo short. I barely was able to make it work (rear facing) with the tether in my Nissan Cube, and I am concerned I won't be able to get it out. (Wtf! Really?). And my husband's Nissan Rogue is impossible (literally... NOT possible) to use the tether.



Wtf?



Are we missing something here? I am annoyed with this stupid seat.

I honestly didn't know you were supposed to tether convertibles when RFing. My car doesn't even have a place for that.

The manual shows to use the latch system, but just the bottoms strap. You don't use the top RF.



Sorry I was referring to the latch, not the top tether.

Oh. Ok. I was confused. :)



That's odd that the strap is too short. I guess at least you know it's tight in there.

It literally does not work in my husband's car though. And I know it's going to be nearly impossible to get out of mine. Horrible design.

Just use the seatbelt in your husband's car. My car is a 2001 and doesn't even have spots for the latch system. :(
