booster seat armrests



Senior Community Member
No, unfortunately it isn't. The armrests are there to hold the lap portion of the seat belt in position on the child, so that it doesn't injure them in a crash. Depending on the design of the booster, if there are no arm rests the seat might just fly out from underneath the child in a crash or the lap belt could end up on the child's tummy (which is REALLY bad).

Are you having a problem buckling a booster into a narrow vehicle seat? If so, the Britax Parkway and Evenflo Big Kid work well for tricky situations. The Evenflo is a tad wide, but its armrests flip up and make it easy to buckle.
