What do you know about this 86Y harness?

http://www.ezonpro.com/products/fami...yHarness.shtml I'm seeing that it needs to be used with a booster up to 65 lbs.. The law around here is use a booster up to 80 lbs. unless there are only lap belts, then no booster after 40lbs.. The car in question has only lap belts in the back. The boy in question is 62 lbs and passes the 5 step test. So do I need a booster or not?

the harness is MUCH safer than just the lap belt, google seat belt syndrome.

that said, if you have a low back booster around still, I would use it with the harness until he's 66lbs like the instructions call for. there must be a reason for that weight being listed(you could also call Ezon and ask them the question). Walmart has the harmony literider for $13.50, so you could always pick one of those up to use it.

thanks Nodak, I definitely want him in the harness and not just the lap belt (thanks for linking it on my other thread). I guess I'll get the cheap booster and see how he fits. He fits better in my Honda without the booster, but he still uses it just cause it's the law. I've got a backless one, but I'm not sure if that will work with the harness set up.

The harness is designed to be used with. A low back boostyer. When it's used on school busses, that's how it is used. I know if I had a vehicle without shoulder belts now, I would definitely order one to use.
