About the Baby Safe LM208 Booster

The LM208 booster is made to the most recent Australian Standards amendment that no longer limits use to weight (formally 14-26kg) now going by occupants height. The seat displays two lines, the first stating that the user must be above the lowest height marker to use the seat, and the second at a higher position stating when the child is no longer able to  use the seat and to move into either another booster with higher markers, or use an adult seat belt. We suggest following the “5 Step Test” to check whether the child is tall enough to use an adult belt, or use another booster seat.

The seat is placed onto the vehicle seat, the child sits inside with the head rest adjusted to site above their shoulders (not too high) and the seat belt then passes over the child, low across the hips, and over the shoulder across the chest.

Pros:

- Light weight so easy to swap between cars
- Extra long tether strap makes it simple to install in many cars without the need for an extension strap.
- Easy to adjust head rest by squeeze and pull the lever behind the head rest.
- Storage pocket on the side to hold instruction manual.

Cons:
- Cannot be used as a backless booster
- Cannot be used with additional Child Safety Harness
