Are there any high-back boosters that use LATCH to attach to the vehicle, or do they all utilize the seat belt to hold the booster as well as the child in place?
This confuses me...
I thought you had to use the seat belt instead of LATCH once the child is 40 lbs.? Can you reattach LATCH when the child moves to booster?
It makes perfect sense, and it's what I was assuming was the case but just wanted to COMPLETELY clarify in my head... I'm a worry wart.
FYI the posts have moved off point. I have been doing research and it is very dangerous to Latch in a booster that is not manufactured to use Latch with a seatlbelt. These boosters are made to move forward with the child in the event of an accident, and if they are Latched the seatbelt will not react properly in an accident.
So if the OP indeed has an Evenflo combination seat (a forward facing only carseat with a 5-point internal harness that converts to a belt positioning booster), then it's currently allowable to use LATCH in booster mode if the above conditions about the seatbelt positioning/fit are met.The use of tethers and lower attachments is permitted as long as the position of the belt positioning booster in the vehicle and/or the resulting fit of the seatbelt over the child are not affected. This is retroactive for all Evenflo belt positioning boosters. At publication time, only Evenflo combination child restraints have this option in belt positioning booster mode.
