i purchased the evenflo medallion carseat (model #2541113p1, manufactured 25feb00). my 16 month old son is able to unclasp the chest buckle. i have to to stop every few blocks to relatch it. i contacted evenflo about my problem and was told that the buckle had been changed on the newer model and they would send me the new buckle. but, if i use this buckle and it does not hold, evenflo would assume no liability since i had altered the harness. they said this buckle had not been tested on my model carseat so they would not guarantee its safety ( even though they offered to give it to me, interesting don't you think?). i was told by their customer service rep that the best thing to do would be to buy a new seat. this seat cost about $100, and i purchased it because i was told that a five point harness was the safest. i truly cannot afford another seat ( although i will buy one if it is my only recourse). please advise me on my next step. thank you for your time.*ak
