The base is not safe. The seat belt will not secure the base to the seat properly due to the belt feeds on the base being too close to the edge instead of more towards the middle of the car seat. To keep the base and car seat in place, more downward force must be applied to it from a point closer to its center. A police officer installed the infant seat per the instructions provided by evenflo and made sure the base was tightened down. Installed correctly, we could still lift the end of the base nearest the front cab up to touch the back seat. It actually flopped up and down loosely, even with the seat attached to the base. This would pose a serious injury risk to the infant in the event of an accident- the seat could fly back towards the rear dash and cause possible neck/back trauma. It could possibly even let go completely, allowing seat and child to be thrown around the interior of the car. Not only would such an incident injure the child, but also any other passengers that are in the car during an accident. Jacksonville police department advised me to return the car seat, purchase one that would install to safe standards and report this install failure of the evenflo cozy carry 5 comfort touch infant car seat to you.
