Latchable booster or not?


New member
Is there a safety advantage to a latchable booster (other than not being a projectile in the car when not in use)?

I'm trying to decide between the Parkway SGL and just the SG.

I think one engineer said it's better (in side impacts?), and then one study showed it might actually be worse in frontals.

Or something.

I think the jury's still out, and it's one of those "we have no way of knowing" things.

What Jennie said. We just have no idea.

That said, I'd be more inclined to want to latch a heavier booster like the frontier. Would it really help? No clue.
