    Smile Please check booster fit

    Hello I was wanting some input on whether my daughters fit in this booster is okay. I am not sure if I should raise the headrest up and whether the buckle is too close to the seat. The buckle stalk seems very long and I am unsure if there are rules in regards to how close it falls near the seat. My daughter is 6 and weighs 50 pounds.

    The headrest definitely needs to go up. You want the shoulder belt on the collarbone. It's nearly going off of her shoulder there.

    The buckle looks fine.

    Lap belt and buckle look fine, but, yeah, the headrest definitely needs to go up a click to center the shoulder belt better.
