    Safe Kids has also issued a press release entitled "Booster Seats are Not-One-Size-Fits-All - Parents Must Find the Right Fit for Their Child" in response to the IIHS booster study.

    oh, you saw that misuse, too.

    I was appalled.

    I think the booster study just proved what we've always said, but took it a bit extreme... they need to just say not every booster fits every kid in every car, and issue a big statement on how to check booster fit.
