Checking booster fit

Both the lap and shoulder belts must fit your child correctly.

Lap belt fit
The lap belt should lie flat and on top of the thighs, not higher up on the abdomen.

Shoulder belt fit
The shoulder belt should fit across the middle of the child's shoulder. If it falls off the shoulder or rests on your child's neck, it won't work as well. An improper fit could encourage your child to move the belt to a dangerous position, such as behind the back or under the arm.
