Booster Cushions – Group 3
22kg upwards (from approx. 6 years)
Most booster seats can be adjusted to provide effective side and frontal impact protection for children all the way from around 4 years up to 12 years or 135cm tall.
There may however be occasions, for example when your child is to be picked up from school by another parent, where it's not convenient to use a 'highback booster'.
A booster cushion is a good alternative to the adult belt on its own as they improve the fit of the diagonal belt on the child's shoulder and ensure that the lap belt lies correctly across the child's thighs.
Booster cushions don't offer any side impact protection though and may disappear from the market in the future if European safety standards for child restraints impose minimum levels of side impact protection on all seats.
