Convertib;le- booster height markers

untethered booster shoulder height markers

Up until September 2014, when a child reached the upper height marker on a forward facing 0-4 child restraint, the child would go into a Booster seat. In September 2014 a new class of child restraint was introduced, the G type seat. The G type seat is a forward facing child restraint (6 months to 8 years) that allows the child to be restrained with a harness until the are approximately 8 years of age.

With the introduction of the 2010 standard cam the shoulder height markers which replaced the age/ weight confusion which had been around since 2004. The new Australian standard introduced in 2010 makes it easier for parents and carers to determine if a child restraint is suitable for their child and when the child needs to move to the next type of restraint. On some restraints it will determine when the restraint needs to be changed to the next mode.

Wat are the child restraint standards for Boosters

Booster seats are designed for a child who has outgrown a forward facing restraint, and uses a car’s lap/sash belt. It is important that the sash part must cross your child’s shoulder and not run across their neck. Most booster seats come with a sash guide to guide the seat belt into the right position.

Parents can, and still do, use booster seats as there is nothing preventing the use of a booster seat. Booster seats come in a number of variations a straight plain booster seat and a booster seat/ forward facing child restraint, and a rear facing forward facing and booster seat in one seat (There is only one Child restraint in the category which is the INFA LUXI Child restraint).

Can a Booster be used with a LAP Belt

IF you wish to place a child in the centre of the back seat which only has a lap type beltt, then you need to use a G type seat such as the INFA Evolve which has an integrated harness for the child.
