A friend of mine who’s a CHP officer told me to get this for my daughter who just reached 40 pounds. He arrives on the scene of horrible auto crashes everyday and said this exact booster seat is best in class. And all of the usual first responders tend to agree.
I’ve been using this seat in a Tesla for a few months and have to say it’s an excellent super light weight unit. It’s also very well padded. The dimensions are absolutely perfect for kids that are not overweight. And the bottom panel is constructed in a way that helps prevent damage to leather seats. Your cars seat belt is what holds the child AND this seat in place. In other words...you are paying $40.00 for a piece of plastic with padding that raises your child straight up 6 inches. Thats it, expect nothing more. It’s funny to read how people buy this and whine so much expecting it to come with straps that “hold it in place”...LOL. Do you see straps in the pictures? No! The words “Belt Positioning” which are all over the description of this product means NO latch system and NO straps...simple concept to understand. Repeat after me...belt positioning = no latch system and no straps. Got it? Good!
