View Full Version : Car Booster Seats

04-27-2002, 03:56 PM
My son is 4 years old and weighs 42 lbs. We tried out the Britax Super Elite and noticed that the bottom plastic piece (crotch piece)0 appears too tight in his crotch. He wasn't complaining, but then again he is comfortable wearing his sneakers on the opposite foot. The manual explicitly states that the crotch belt is to be used in the 2nd slot when the child is 50 lbs or more.

We want a 5 point harness because the Super Elite will fit in the middle position and not near the windows. Any other booster seat requires the shoulder and lap belts which means he has to sit either on the driver or passenger side outboard.

Any suggestions or experience with this problem?

I'd call Britax. They might be able to tell you why they have a 50 pound limit on the second crotch strap slot.

Sorry I don't have a better answer.

I'm just wondering if you ever found anything out about the crotch strap and the Super Elite. My son just turned 4 is about 46 lbs and it is entirely too tight. I'm wondering if I can return the seat or if there is a solution.
