    5.0 out of 5 stars Rare booster seat with LATCH system., February 15, 2011
    By Stef - See all my reviewsThis review is from: Evenflo Generations 65 Harness Booster Seat, Melbourne (Baby Product)
    Car seat is perfect. Comfortable, safe. Has both bottom latch system and the over-the-seat tether. Fits my 7-year-old great. One of few booster seats I could find that had the latch and tether system.

    My son has used this seat before, not in booster mode but am confused by this persons review. What I read online (since I don't have the manual) states that seat belt usage only between 40-100 lbs. I have doubts that a. a 7 year old sits harnessed in this seat (wouldn't they outgrow by height for sure) and b. that a 7 year old weigh more than 40 lbs. If this person is truly using it as a booster they shouldn't be using latch correct???

    Some combo seats(nauti, frontier) allow latch in booster mode. I'm guessing this onw deosnt though. I does sound like it is being used in booster mode. I'm going to see if I can find the manual online.

    The Generation 65 goes to 65 pounds harnessed. You can use it as a booster between 40-100 pounds. It's likely her seven year old's shoulders are above the top slots, but a lot of parents don't know about that restriction. You can LATCH it in as a booster.

    Bottom of the page states their limits. It says 40-100 lbs booster mode Seatbelt only. Hmmmm

    I think that may be referring to harness vs booster rather than not allowing LATCH In booster mode. What does your manual say? I couldn't find one online.

    I don't have the seat. My friend does and he rode in it in her car. He weighs just at 29 lbs and is 3. So I wasn't concerned about the LATCH issue but I read that and was confused....

    Evenflo allows LATCH for combo boosters.

    You can ONLY use the seatbelt from 40-100 pounds. Meaning, you cannot use the seatbelt from 0-40 pounds. Make sense now? Doesn't mean you can't use the harness to the 65 pounds stated in the name of the seat (which is why its named that).

    Confusing, huh? You can use LATCH to 48 pounds harnessed, then you can use it again at any approved weight over 40 pounds in booster mode.
