How do I install a booster seat?

If your child is too big for a child restraint system, but too small to sit in the seats normally, you may use a booster seat. It’s important to always install a booster seat correctly, which is very easy to do: 1. Place the booster seat on one of the back seats. While you can use the front seat for the booster seat, you should use the rear seat if available. If you do use the front seat, make sure to move the seat to its rear-most position, and make sure that the Passenger Airbag Off indicator comes on. 2. Adjust the head restraint, if necessary, to make room for the booster seat to sit naturally and securely. 3. Run the seat belt over the occupant in the booster seat, and buckle the seat belt. Be sure to follow the booster seat manufacturer’s instructions for this step. 4. Pull the seat belt back toward the retractor to remove any slack in the belt. 5. Lightly attempt to move the booster seat to make sure it is firmly in place.
