Check Belt Fit for me, please

If you send me a picture, I can see if I can get it forwarded to the right person.

I will do that. It might take me a while though. We won't go to Grandma's house again until the first surge of GS cookies has passed.

DH is going in a week so he can run the Surf City Half Marathon on Super Bowl Sunday. I'll ask him to take pics, but he might not get good ones. :(

Couple more pics for you:

We have one more seat at the house, so we pulled it from the other car and tried it.

This is the Recaro Performance Booster in the Forester

Shoulder Belt

Lap Belt

Is this fit any better? Can we put this one in as her main booster? (They're taking a long trip tomorrow and she is likely to sleep - she does the head-tip-back well 95% of the time, but If the hbb still fits, I'd rather have her in it! That's why we got tall ones!)

In its regular home: Behind the driver in our 2017 Subaru WRX
Shoulder Belt

Lap Belt

Is the fit still okay or should we be looking for another booster for this car too?

I put the Clek Olli in here (while testing the Performance Booster in the other car) and the fit is roughly the same as in the Forester. Sorry, I didn't take pics. It was cold (California cold :) and DD was DONE)

In the Forrester it's hard to tell but I think the lap belt fit is ok; shoulder belt I wonder if you can take the guides down one notch and still be above the shoulders? It looks a bit close on the neck.

WRX the shoulder belt looks better but the lap belt looks farther forward? It's hard to say, again, but I'm not sure I'm comfortable with that lap belt fit.
