Easy to buckle booster seat


New member
I'll be moving my 7 year old dd out of her Regent to a booster soon. Which boosters are easy for her to buckle herself in? She'll be in the captain's chair in a 2005 Sienna. She's expected to buckle herself in when I pick her up at school (she does fine buckling herself into the Regent).

My boosters are discontinued models, but hopefully someone else will have a suggestion or two for you.

Is is the model of booster that makes a difference, or the model of the vehicle? I'm wondering that myself.

My DD1 is transitioning to a booster from a harnessed seat, and she (and me, too) often struggles to buckle herself into her Nautilus in our minivan because the latchplate often gets pressed down so that it is parallel to the seat of the van.

She was in a Monterey for three weeks during our recent holiday, and was fine buckling herself in an Altima and a Jeep Patriot, but it was harder in a Mazda3 and a Toyota Echo. I think that it might be easier where there is more space b/w the booster and the latchplate.

My 5 1/2 yo has no issues buckling his turbobooster (arms on higher setting). He's in the captain's chair of an '09 Sienna.
