The Graco Turbo booster(backless version and high back version) and Graco Nautilus(for when the seat is converted to a low back booster) come with adjusters that adjust the position of the seatbelt on the shoulder. Most parents just don't bother to ever use them.

Dude, I'm 5'7" and I have problems with MY seatbelt hitting me in the right place. But that's probably because my giant boobs don't allow the belt to lay correctly

Thanks. That's what I thought but wanted to be sure. She still meets the requirements for the others but wanted to make sure her straps were right

Seat belts are designed for the "average" adult male. My brother is 6'4" and the seat belt doesn't fit him right, either.

If I ever get in a crash, I'll probably be decapitated. I'm 5'4 and even though we have a sliding seat belt adjuster on the side, it still always slides up around my neck.

I also just want to thank you for this thread. It wasn't until I stumbled upon a thread at ds that I learned about erf. I had no clue. I am so thankful that someone took the time to teach me. And so are my kids.

Is there anyway to e-mail the OP without linking it to here? I'd love to forward on the links to someone but I'm not comfy with inviting them here.

Awesome post, I didnt go through and check out every link but Im not sure if these were posted

This is a high backed booster with headwings
http://www.oeamtc.at/netautor/html_s...ordliftpro.mpg

This is one without the head wings
http://www.oeamtc.at/netautor/html_s...revolution.mpg

I dont have a backless right on hand, but you can imagine the difference is even more pronounced. A backless is mainly good for when there is a space between when a highbacked booster is outgrown and they still dont pass the 5 step seatbelt test!

Me too! I quickly became obsessed. Now I'm a tech... I've come a long way from that whackjob that had her 18lb 18mo FF'ing in a combo seat that harnessed from 22-40lbs.

In my defense... I was clueless. I wanted to keep RF'ing but I couldn't figure out how to get my FF'ing only seat installed RF'ing in my car.

All backless boosters have them...it's a requirement that they come with one...but like you said, most parents either don't know what it's for, or don't care.

You can see it sitting on my DS#1's right shoulder in this picture.
