Experience with the Revolve 360 Rotation

The highlight of the Revolve 360 is undoubtedly its 360-degree rotation feature. It allows you to easily switch between rear-facing and forward-facing positions, making it convenient for parents. The seat and base can be separated for easy installation, and the “LockStrong” bar ensures a secure and tight fit. The “Tether360” strap provides additional stability, both forward-facing and rear-facing.

Revolve 360 Rotation

It’s important to note that the Revolve 360 can make a full 360-degree rotation only when it’s in the fully reclined position for rear-facing. In other recline positions, it can still rotate to the side, but not a full 360 degrees. However, for daily use, this is not a significant limitation as you mainly need to rotate the seat to the side for loading and unloading.

When using the Revolve 360 in booster mode, it can be securely LATCHed in place. The seat also features a QR code that links to instructions and product videos for easy reference.

Installation and Fit

Installing the Revolve 360 is straightforward, especially when using the seatbelt installation method. The base design limits rebound when rear-facing, ensuring enhanced safety. The seat has a 14-position no-rethread harness, allowing for easy adjustment as your child grows. It also offers a wide range of recline positions for rear-facing to achieve the correct recline angle.

Evenflo Revolve 360 Installation

The Revolve 360 fits well in most vehicles, and it can lightly contact the vehicle seat in front when rear-facing. However, it’s recommended to raise or remove the head restraint if it interferes with the seat locking into the forward-facing position.

Comfort and Ease of Use

The Revolve 360 provides excellent comfort and ease of use. It features a well-padded design and is easy to install correctly, especially when using the seatbelt installation method. The rotational feature is simple and smooth, and the harness is easy to tighten and loosen in both rear-facing and forward-facing orientations. The only minor issue reported is that the harness webbing tends to twist as it routes through the buckle, requiring attention during the buckling process to avoid twisty straps.


The Evenflo Revolve 360 is a game-changer in the world of car seats. Despite its price, it offers convenience and safety features that make it worth considering for parents. The 360-degree rotation feature, easy installation, and multi-mode functionality make it a versatile choice. With a 10-year lifespan, it is meant to last. The Revolve 360 sets the gold standard for rotating car seats.
