Children Too Large For Booster Seats

Children who are large enough to wear the shoulder belt comfortably, and whose legs are long enough to bend over the front of the seat when their back is against the seatback, should use the lap/shoulder belt in a rear seat.

Make sure that the child is upright in the seat.
The lap portion should be low on the hips and as snug as possible.
Check belt fit periodically. A childs squirming or slouching can move the belt out of position.
If the shoulder belt contacts the face or neck, move the child closer to the center of the vehicle. Never allow a child to put the shoulder belt under an arm or behind their back.

Here are some tips on getting the most out of your child restraint:

Before buying any restraint system, make sure that it has a label certifying that it meets all applicable Safety Standards. FIAT Group Automobiles also recommends that you make sure that you can install the child restraint in the vehicle where you will use it, before you buy it.
The restraint must be appropriate for your childs weight and height. Check the label on the restraint for weight and height limits.
Carefully follow the instructions that come with the restraint. If you install the restraint improperly, it may not work when you need it.
