    It needs vehicle support (headrests or high seatbacks) to the tops of the child's ears.

    Re: Protek

    It can also be tough to install, and it's not very good as a harnessed seat (low top slots, 40 pound harness limit).

    Thanks, Kimberly. I was thinking of the Eddie Bauer Adjustable High Back Booster instead. [ame="http://www.amazon.com/Eddie-Bauer-Adjustable-High-Booster/dp/B001MUK3ZO"]Amazon.com: Eddie Bauer Adjustable High Back Booster Car Seat: Toys & Games[/ame] Close, but no cigar.

    I had one (not to use). It's basically the cosco ambassador with a non-removable and non-adjustable back. I'd go for the pronto over the protek.
