Child booster seats are designed to keep young children safe in the car - but only if fitted correctly.
Booster seats are for children between the ages of 4 to 8 years old who are too small to safely sit on the back seat. Any child under the upper height marker should be secured in a booster seat.
What You'll Need
- Child Booster Seat
- Anchor point fitting kit, if required
- Extension strap, if required
Tips and Warnings
- Ensure you attach the booster seat on a front facing seat only
- Check over all your anchor points and adjustments before driving
Before You Start
Before you start, make sure you read the instruction manual carefully.
Firstly locate your vehicles child restraint anchor point.
This will be located somewhere on the back seat or in the boot area. Check your vehicles manual for the exact location if required.
NOTE: Some vehicles don’t have an anchor pre-attached and you will need to fit an anchor kit.
Once you have located or fitted anchor points, attach and tighten the tether strap to secure the booster seat in place.
NOTE: Make sure the seat is tightly secured but don’t allow the base of the booster seat to lift off the car seat.
Feed the ‘Lap Sash’ seat belt through the seat belt guide located on the side of the headrest.
NOTE: The guide is designed to keep the seatbelt away from your child’s neck and face.
Adjust the height of the head rest so that the seatbelt stretches comfortably across your child’s chest. This is done using the red button located on the back of the headrest.
Clip the seatbelt into the correct buckle. Secure the lap belt comfortably and securely around the child and allow the sash to spool back any excess slack.
Finally, check over all your anchor points and adjustments. If you’re satisfied then it’s safe to drive.
Our kids are the most important thing in our lives. With this new knowledge you can feel assured of their safety.
