Evenflo Triumph Car Seat Instructions

By Lindsay Maddox ; Updated April 18, 2017

Convertible car seats can last your child through most of her car-seat-using years. Many of them safely hold a baby who weighs anywhere between 5 and 65 lbs., though the exact limits vary depending on the seat model. They can be installed both rear- and forward-facing and using the LATCH (Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children) system to further ensure the baby's safety.

Evenflo Triumph Rear-Facing Installation

Recline the seat by pulling on the red or yellow lever in the center of the front of the seat. You may have to push and then pull on the top of the seat to get it to disengage from its current position. Recline until the arrow aligns with the No. 1, labeled on the side of the seat.

Put the Triumph onto the vehicle's seat, facing backward. Feed the LATCH belt through the front openings, labeled "rear-facing".

Ensure the LATCH belt isn't twisted. Clip each LATCH fastener onto the corresponding anchor on your vehicle's seat.

Pull up on the LATCH belt strap while putting force on the seat. Continue doing so until the seat does not move more than an inch at the belt path.

Evenflo Triumph Forward-Facing Installation

Pull on the red or yellow lever in the front of the seat to put it in an upright position, either on level 2 or 3, as labeled on the side of the seat.

Move the LATCH belt from the rear-facing openings to the forward-facing openings. Ensure that the belt isn't twisted.

Put the Triumph onto the vehicle's seat facing forward. Clip each end of the LATCH belt onto the corresponding anchor on your vehicle's seat.

Tighten the belt by pulling up on the strap. Put pressure on the seat to help create a tighter adjustment.

Move the seat back and forth. It should not move more than an inch at the belt path. If it does, add more pressure to the seat and continue to tighten.

Connect the top tether to the LATCH anchor behind the vehicle's seat. Pull up to secure it tightly.


Rear-facing, the seat should sit at a 45-degree angle. Add a cut-up water noodle under the base nearest the seat back and re-tighten the straps.

Shoulder straps should fall at or below baby's shoulders when rear-facing, and at or above baby's shoulders when forward-facing.

Rear-facing is safest for babies under 1 year and 20 lbs.


After installation, have your seat inspected by a professional (see Resources). Always ensure that harness straps are adequately tightened before traveling.
