Childs booster seat

Postby rob711 » Wed Sep 09, 2015 1:22 pm

So my 3 and 5 year olds have out grown there car seats and are now in booster seats, these all require shoulder and lap belts, my bug has lap only in the rears. I've read on the samba that there might be mounting holes under the head liner for shoulder belts, but I haven't looked yet. Anyone here deal with this? My other option is to amputate my girls legs off but I fear they may need them later in life. Any suggestions, or sources for complete rear shoulder belts would be appreciated.
Thanks
Rob

There are anchors in the C posts behind the sail panels. What type of boosters are the girls in? You need to make sure when you upgrade the belts to accommodate the third anchor that you also buy either a locking clip. The only part of the belt that should be adjustable for a booster is the part of the belt that feeds into the retractor. The buckle itself will need to have a locking clip in place. Your boosters probably came with one attached to the back or base. If not, you'll need to buy one down at Babies R Us.

I just came in from poking my mexican, I'm confident I felt where top anchor goes by the window, and I totally got to second base but over the headliner. Off to google some more, thanks mike.

You know, just the unclaimed mortal remains of East Northportians.

I'm kidding of course.

Just moving a sidewalk closer the building. We use CVS' lot as overflow and people are always trampling our lawn.
