    Converting Evenflo Maestro to booster

    I am in the process of switching my son's Maestro into a booster. Reading the manual it states to install booster with LATCH connectors.? Does this mean lower LATCH or Tether? Or both?

    Both if you'd like. That keeps the seat from becoming a projectile when he's not in it.

    The Maestro often doesn't offer children much more room than the harness does. Has your son maxed out the harness, height-wise? If so, the booster might not work for him.

    If your son still has room, height-wise, in the harness, the booster should be fine.

    He is about 2 lbs off the weight limit for the harness. Height wise we are good. Looking to transfer to a Recaro booster early next yr. But figured I probably ought to go ahead and have him learn to sit in a booster now, rather than when I have no choice. He is 6 yrs old, 48 lbs on a normal day, and about 49 in tall.
