Blogiversary Celebration Giveaway: Evenflo “Platinum” SecureKid DLX – the coolest ride in town

Even though it’s our Blogiversary, this celebration isn’t about us – it’s about YOU. We know we’re lucky to have so many awesome readers and followers who all care deeply about keeping kids safe in and around motor vehicles. We want to reward you for supporting us throughout these past 6 years and the best reward we could think of was another incredible giveaway promotion!

This week we’ve partnered with our generous friends at Evenflo to offer a fabulous, Platinum SecureKid DLX!  This deluxe model offers all of the premium features of the Evenflo SecureKid DLX (“e3″ side-impact protection, auto-retracting “SureLATCH” connectors, height-adjustable head support and dual integrated cupholders), plus it features buckle pockets to hold the buckle tongues out of the way when loading/unloading child and it offers Outlast® temperature-regulating fabric to keep kids cool in the sweltering summer heat!

This promotion is now closed. Thank you for participating – a winner will be announced soon!

Platinum SecureKid DLX Specs:

  • With 5-point harness: Forward-facing only for kids 22-65 lbs, at least 1 year old, height 28- 50″ tall (shoulders must be at or below top harness slots). *Please keep in mind that the AAP (American Academy of Pediatrics) recommends that all kids under 24 months ride in a rear-facing carseat. For this reason we recommend this seat for kids who are at least 2 years old.
  • As a booster: 40-110 lbs, at least 4 years old, height 43 – 57″ (top of ears must be below the top of CR headrest).

OUTLAST® Performance Fabrics absorb hot and cold temperature, releasing as needed. Outlast® technology, originally developed for NASA, utilizes phase change materials (PCM) that absorb, store and release heat for optimal thermal comfort.

This technology has the ability to:

  • Actively absorb and store excess heat, helping to reduce overheating
  • Allow the child to stay at a balanced temperature and prevent chilling during the cooler months; if the child’s skin temperature drops, the stored heat is released
  • Reduce perspiration so the child stays drier and more comfortable

The thermal image below shows the difference in body temperature after 30 minutes of sitting in the same style carseat – one with OUTLAST®  fabric and one with regular fabric. If you live in a warm climate or just have a kid who is a sweatbox – this technology will help keep your kiddo feeling comfortable all year round.

Buckle Pockets have been added to this “Platinum” SecureKid model and that’s a major bonus if you hate having to fish the buckle tongues out from underneath your child every time you put them in the seat. They also keep the metal buckle tongues out of direct sunlight when your car is parked which helps to prevent them from heating up to the point where they might actually burn your child as you’re buckling him/her up.

Installation – The SecureKid DLX is super easy to install with the self-ratcheting SuperLATCH connectors which is a real bonus if you move your seats from vehicle-to-vehicle frequently. For more details please see our full review of the Platinum SecureKid DLX here. We think highly of the Evenflo SecureKid and it’s on our list of Recommended Seats.

Cake 6 yearsJuly 2014 marks 6 full years of CarseatBlog.com!  Can you believe it?!?  In some ways it seems like not so long ago that we began blogging about carseats, child passenger safety and vehicle safety. And in some other ways it feels like we’ve been doing this forever… Lol!

Along the way we’ve shared some laughs (R.I.P. Marvin), made some great friends, and oh, yes - reviewed a carseat or two;)

Whether you’re new to CarseatBlog.com or have been with us since the start in 2008 – we’d like to share our celebration with you. You are the reason we’re still here 6 years later, still blogging away, always looking for ways to improve our content and better serve our readers. (Technically we started in 2007 but didn’t begin blogging regularly until July 2008 when we moved to our own server).

The field of Child Passenger Safety is just starting to heat up and take off, and we have a lot of great things planned for the near future here at CarseatBlog. We can’t wait to see all the awesome advances in safety, technology and innovation that the next 6 years is going to bring us. We hope you stick around and enjoy the ride with us!

During the next 6 weeks we’re going to be celebrating by giving away some great carseats so stay tuned! Please spread the word about CarseatBlog and our giveaways to friends, family and share on your social networks! So a big “Thank You” for visiting, from Kecia, Heather, Jennie, Alicia, Darren and all of our guest bloggers at CarseatBlog!

To kickoff our Blogiversary Celebration we’ve partnered with our generous sponsor, Graco, to offer one brand new 4Ever All-in-1 (rear-facing, forward-facing, booster seat).
