IIHS Releases Booster Seat Ratings

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety has released ratings for 31 models of children’s booster seats.

19 of 31 seats earned a top rating, while others still have room for improvement and a couple are not recommended.

The survey looked in particular for seats with a high back, and for proper lap and shoulder belt positioning.

IIHS officials say the lap belt should be low an a child’s upper thighs and the shoulder belt should fit snugly in the center of the shoulder.

Officials want parents to remember that a booster seat should be used until adult seat belts fit, and protect, properly.
