How do I make sure that the seat belt fits my child?
Checking the fit on a seat belt is easy. Here’s what you need to do:
First, ensure that your child meets your state’s minimum weight and height requirements for not using a child seat.
Make sure that you have a booster seat that fits your child.
Position the booster seat as far back in the seat as possible.
Make sure your child is able to sit all the way back against the seat.
Route the belt correctly over your child and the booster seat (see your manufacturer’s instructions).
Make sure that the belt sits low on your child’s hips, and crosses across the chest and shoulder correctly.
