Depending on their design, booster car seats can be used by toddlers, preschoolers, and school-age children. Combination styles with harnesses are usually suitable for toddlers through school-age children, while regular booster styles are only safe for school-aged children. However, you should always check the manufacturer’s height and weight specifications to ensure that a booster car seat is suitable for your child. Q. What’s the difference between high-back and backless booster car seats?A. High back styles are usually combination booster car seats that come with a harness, so they can be used by smaller children with the harness and then used by larger children without the harness. Backless styles are only appropriate for larger children, but are less costly and highly portable. Q. Do booster car seats need to be installed?A. It’s important to ensure that booster seats are actually attached to the car because when a child isn’t it to keep it in place, it could fly off during an accident. Always follow the manufacturer’s instructions carefully for attaching the seat to the backseat of your car. Pull Out: A booster seat “boosts” your child, so they can use an adult seat belt in the backseat of the car. Make sure that both the lap and shoulder belts fit comfortably when the child is in the seat.
