Britax sets the standard for safety seats, and this booster is no exception. Delivers superior protection with a heavy-duty frame and two layers of side protection. Well-padded and enhanced with soft touch fabric for extra comfort. Transitions from a forward-facing harness seat to an adjustable belt-positioning booster seat. ClickTight system makes for quick, easy, and secure installation.
Pricey. Heavy and wide. Takes up considerable space, so it's not the best choice for compact cars.
We like this booster's impressive safety ratings. Starts out as a front-facing harness seat before converting to a high-back booster seat and finally a backless booster seat. Narrow frame is helpful for families with multiple car seats. Comes with dual cup holders and a machine washable cover. Latch system.
A few parents still found installation a bit tricky, but customers can take carseats to any police station for help with proper installation. Harness buckles can be difficult to open.
Offers 10 adjustable height positions, which provides children with an optimal fit. Adjusts from the waist to deliver both head and neck protection. Generously padded and comfortable, even for longer rides. Latch connectors and SuperCinch one-pull tightening makes installation a breeze. Cover is removable and machine washable.
Some kids had difficulty positioning the belt without assistance. Seat belt has a tendency to slip out.
Extra width, dual armrests, and generous padding make this a comfortable option for big kids. Older, petite children appreciate its more "mature" styling. Features adjustable height with side impact protection for the head and shoulders. Belt guides and positioners work together to ensure proper seat belt positioning. Cover zips off for cleaning. Easy to install.
Extra wide design isn't ideal for families with multiple car seats. On the pricey side.
Compact and easy to use. Features a comfortable seat cushion and padded, height adjustable armrests. Hide-away cup holders are a nice touch. All cushioning is removable for fuss-free cleaning. Safely supports kids from 40 pounds up to 100 pounds. Easy to move from one car to another. Budget-friendly, so it makes a good backup for a second family car or leaving at grandma's house.
Some said the armrest covers slipped off easily. Getting the armrests on and off can be a challenge.
