backless for 8th seat Odyssey


New member
Does the Harmony Big Boost fit here in a newer Odyssey? If not I have the Harmony Youth which looks great there. The bigger one latches in and everything...can't tell if too wide. Base seems to be on the seat, but,'s a narrow seat! I prefer Latch. Clek seemed too wide.
(And second, can I have my 10 YO (seatbelt in back middle) between a latch FF Foonf and a Harmony Dreamtime?) He is wedged in between the two. He fits, no problem. But in a crash, it shoulder to shoulder with all that plastic and metal a good thing? If his head smacks up against the Foonf headrest from the outside, for example? That's a TALL seat. As an adult I am not comfy in that seat at all. I am not even sure I fit, in a liberal sense of the word. 10 YO is smaller than I am, well over 5 feet so it's not a longterm thing. Obviously I free up an inch or two if I don't use the latch but then what's the point of that great seat, lol. Latch makes for an easy install that is great. also have seatbelt.

All 8 seats of the van are full and we have 5 carseats or boosters.
RF 2 YO was kicking FF 4 YO in the face so I switched things up.

I'd use seatbelt to give more room.

That said the only study I'm aware of found a benefit to an occupant seated next to a child seat in a side impact, not harm. Though it was small.
