Hbb for low ceiling


New member
I'm starting to shop for a hbb for my 5.5 yo, looking to buy before September. He is 48 lbs and 15.75" torso height. I need it to go in the 3rd row of a lincoln mkt. the seat to ceiling height is 31" so I'd like a base that is low profile. I'd also like deep wings if possible. There is no latch on the side where he will be. I'm thinking about the boost air and graco safety surround.

I don't need the tallest possible height as it will be limited by the ceiling. The shoulder belt comes more from the side than the back if that makes sense. Any thoughts on which might work or others I should look at?

You could also look at the Evenflo Amp, if the Graco doesn't like your seat belts (ie if it doesn't retract easily, or slips out of the belt guide).
