What would you like to do?
All booster seats can be used with a shoulder belt as far as I know. The best are the kind with a back on them. Just follow the directions that come with it. And you can ask …store people, they may know a lot about them. Someone answer his question. I have the same question. We have the boosters that go with shoulder belts, but we don't have shoulder belts in our cars. The mfg. instructions for our booster seat say not to use it with only a lap belt. The state says we have to use a booster, so we're stuck. There is NO booster seat on the market that can be used without a shoulder belt. BUT you do have options. First, you can purchase a seat that will harness your child over the 40lb weight limit of most traditional carseats. Seats that do this are the Britax Marathon, or Britax Husky. If that is not an option, then using a harness system such as the EZ-On (http://www.ezonpro.com/). Your last option is to have shoulder belts retrofitted for the vehicle. Depending on the vehicle this could cost about $200+. Also, you cannot have a shoulder belt put in the center position of a car. In the mean time and as a very very last resort, you can put the child in the front seat (as long as there is NO airbag) using the shoulder belt in the passenger side position. Make sure you push the vehicle seat all the way back. On a side note: also about lap only belts. It is EXTREAMLY unsafe for ANYONE to use a lap only belt. There are 2 types of injuries that are associated with lap only belts. The first being Head and/or neck injury. This is caused when the individual is thrown forward and has no upper body restraint. And the second is called seat belt syndrom. These injuries typically include 1. severe abdominal injuries, 2. fractures of the lumbar spine, and 3. serious closed head and facial injuries.

Sometimes you have to take the seats out to get to it.
Answer AT FIRST REMOVE BENCH SEAT THEN INSTALL ROLL CAGE WITH ATLEAST THREE SEAT POSITIONS. THEN INSTALL THE CORRECT 2 POINT HARNESS AND YOU AR…E GOOD TO GO. OH BUY THE WAY THE BENCH SEAT IS A BENCH SEAT FOR A REASON YOU DONT NEED SHOULDER BELTS ON A BENCH SEAT.
If your talking about the booster seat without a back then NO, It is not safe for the child to ride with only a lap belt.
Lift up the seat base and tilt it forward. Remove bolt holding the seatbelt to the floor.
It is not "age" that determines this ... more so "height" and "weight". State laws differ, but there are minimal height requirements for children using the regular seat be…lts in auto's and trucks.
For one, there's Chrysler Sebring convertible seats.
The question makes no sense. Booster seat in the middles seat of the back of the car.... of course, that would be the safest spot if you have side impact airbags.... … Now I am taking a guess with the last part of the question... with a back PACK? I would advise no as that can be a safety issue.
the weight to sit in a booster seat is... 40 pounds AND the age of 4 years, BUT preferably the child is longer.
you must be 60 ponds or 9 years old......
you have to be 12
In Child Safety
there's really no preference on age, but 4'9" and 45 pounds is the most commonly accepted law
In Child Safety
i think it is when they are 1.3m tall or 13
When your child is atleast 80 lbs. or 4' 9" tall or at 8 years of age.
A typical car seat has several built in harnesses and their own internal system of restraints designed to help protect young children who are not yet large enough to be protec…ted by an automobile's traditional seat belts. A booster seat simply helps raise an older child up enough in the seat to be protected by the car's standard safety belt system.
