    Booster Seat for 6 year old

    I just bought a Turbo Cab but can't find a booster seat to fit in the back for my 6 year old son.  All I need is the seat, no 5 pt harness or back, just the bottom.  Can anyone?

    Sorry, can't help with your question, apart from saying that you may be having a problem getting that kind of booster because they do not offer the safety of a "real" child's seat with a dedicated harness. Are boosters of that type still sold in the USA? Smiley

    I'm only responding really because you listed your location as Lower Gwynedd below your avatar. I drove through a place named Gwynedd on this side of the big pond a couple of weeks ago.

    Is the "dd" in your Gwynedd also still pronounced like a soft English "th" by any chance?

    No, it's pronounced with a "d" sound.  It is about 40 minutes outside of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and has a lot of horse farms.

    In the U.S. children 5 and over can use a booster seat to make them big enough so the seatbelt goes across there shoulder and chest not there neck.  Under 5 we use the 5 pt harness and full seat I believe you are referring to though.

    Funny, my next door neighbor's moved here from Berlin 3 years ago.  He ran Merck's research department until about 2 months ago.

    take care.

     You could try googling Britax Booster Seat to see what it throws up in the USA. 

    Britax is one of the biggest manufacturers of children's car seats here in Europe, and contrary to what I thought when I first read your post, the use of boosters for kids of certain weights is now a legal requirement here in Europe. 

    The Gwynedd I referred to is in fact in the UK, not Germany. Since you mentioned Lower Gwynedd is in Pennsylvania it helps explain the name, because a lot immigrants from that part of the UK ended up as miners in Pennsylvania. 

    Your new German neighbor should tell the people responsible for the township's web site that the local company they have listed as Rohm & Hass should in fact be called Rohm & Haas.
    Whereas Haas might be derived from the German for "hare" and is quite harmless, Hass is German for "hate".   Smiley

    He lost his job at Merck.  I don't think I want to antagonize him.  Your picture says Germany and your name Fritz.  I suppose you are German and living in the UK?

    Thanks for the welcome.  A friend told me this is a must for Porsche owners.

    Hi, Dries

    I have a 6 year old daughter, and I use the Mothercare Commuter Deluxe (Camouflage) booster seat.  It looks like they've stopped making the camouflage colour, but I found a link for the black one here http://www.mothercare.com/Mothercare-Commuter-Deluxe-Black/dp/B0030EEZHW/sr=1-3/qid=1271247302/ref=sr_1_3/275-6932053-3813636?_e...

    It fits perfectly on the rear seat, and my daughter is very comfortable on it.

    I understand that at that age, you only need the booster seat so that the seat belts of the car can come over the shoulder of the child, rather than over the neck, if there was no booster seat.  So the brand and model is not that important at this stage.

    Here is the Porsche collection, you need the Junior Plus Seat. It has a back but trust me, it is safer than an ordinary seat booster without back support.

    Re: Booster Seat for 6 year old

    They're discontinued in the U.S.  Also, I need a booster for the back.


    Re: Booster Seat for 6 year old

    I also asked about these here but apparently they have not been sold in Canada for a few years

    Re: Booster Seat for 6 year old

    I fit one of those in the back of my coupe. Now the seats in the cab are a bit more different in the back . I don't know if that changes anything ?

    But I must admit that I don't use any back seat for my 7 year old , as the seat are so small , the belt so low, that it seems ok
