Booster Car Seats

Booster car seats raise your child high enough so you can safely secure him with a safety belt. Belt-positioning boosters have a path that helps position the belt correctly across the child's chest and hips.

Motor vehicle safety for young passengers is an important consideration for parent's and caregivers. While most people will place an infant or toddler in a safety car seat in the back seat of their car, most car owners don't know that the safest way for 4 to 8 year-olds to ride is in a booster seat in the back seat of a vehicle.

There are however instances where your child may be younger than 8 years and be big enough to ride without a booster seat. They may also be a smaller 9 or 10 year old and still require a booster seat. These size determinations precludes age because small children who are not in a booster seat may be injured in an accident if the adult-sized seat belt does not fit them properly.

You can purchase a backless booster car seat or a high-back booster seat. The high-back models are best for vehicles that don't have head restraints built into the back seat. Some high-back belt-positioning boosters can convert to a backless one.
