    It doesn’t look like it adjusts the lap belt in a safe way at all—it might adjust it in the wrong direction, or not at all.

    It doesn't adjust the lap belt section because it doesn't have to! If you take a look at integrated car boosters, like those in Volvos, or many other boosters on the market that don't adjust the lap belt but leave them as-is so it works the way it's designed. This way it's positioned in the best spot - over the hips! It doesn't "adjust them in the wrong direction" either. Their instructions clearly say that it has to be attached as close to the belt anchor as possible so that it doesn't pull the lap belt up to a dangerous position over the hips. In reality, there's been so much unsafe booster use due to "lap belt adjustments" that many booster seat manufacturers have shied away from including guides or armrests altogether.
