Recommend a booster, please
My 30 pound 2 year old is level with the top harness slots in his ComfortSport. We got it free from our child birth class, so I'm not disappointed. It's been a good "tweener" seat.
We have a 2002 Accord. The seat belt latches seem to be too long to work with most car seat slots. And the belts don't lock, so to add the locking clamp would mean trying to put it on to the belt while the belt is inside of the seat. I can't make that work.
I picked up a Safety 1st Vantage Point today, not realizing the top slots were so low. So we won't be keeping it. But it taught me that the LATCH adjuster on some seats is also too long to put the seat in tightly. To install this seat I'd have to have the latch adjuster inside of the seat slot, and there's no good way to pull it tightly enough from that position.
So, can anyone recommend a good 5 point harnessed booster that will potentially last my kid until he's ready for a backless. I'd like to spend $100 or less. And I need to be able to use the LATCH for it without too much difficulty, as we transfer the seat to my mom's car once a month or so. Also, it's between 2 backless boosters, so the big kids need to be able to buckle their seat belts. So far with the ComfortSport and the Scenera this hasn't been an issue.
