They just sent me that little snippet so I haven't seen the entire manual. It may very well state "at or below" elsewhere in the manual. But I had the same question when I read it. I guess we'll find out soon enough when it's released and someone gets their hands on one.What does it say in regards to harness slot vs shoulder height?
Oh that would be a very bad thing. I hope it will last my kids until they are 6 w/the harness...but if it's lost any height that may not be realistic for Patrick as he has a long torso and is already on the top slots of the Maestro. Guess we will find out in a week or so when we get our seat.It appears to be (and it's been said before) that it's based on the Maestro shell, so I'd assume the slots would be similar. It looks to have more padding, so maybe there'd be a small loss of height.
It's already got some of the highest slots on the market. It's tied with the nautilus and prosport (depending on who measures, half inch variances have been reported), and second only to the frontier85. The second highest slots on the market are nothing to sneeze at.Oh that would be a very bad thing.

FWIW, the manual doesn't say that, exactly. IIRC, it said something to the effect of 'if you can't tether the Maestro, it MAY BE safer to use it as a belt positioning booster'. It didn't say you had to or that it was unsafe to use untethered. And you certainly wouldn't do so with a younger child. Bottom line is, it still past testing without the top tether in a lap belt position or it would not be on the market.Does it have the same instructions as the maestro to use as a booster if you can't tether it?
