That is correct. No more belt positioning booster seat necessary. The booster has long been the only known tool for helping the adult seat belt fit the kids. Where a booster is used to lift the child to try to make the adult seat belt fit better on the child, the RideSafer is used to bring the seat belt down to the child with 3 main benefits:
- Crash dynamics would say the child is safer in the vehicle seat. This gives the child a lower center of mass and puts her back further from the vehicle seats in front of her.
- The seat belt is properly positioned on the child’s body — low on the hips/lap and mid chest mid-shoulder and moves with the child.
- The front panels are designed to absorb and dissipate the crash energy of the seat belt as it crosses the child’s body.
Some parents like that their child can see out the window and complained that their child couldn’t using just the RideSafer. The manufacturer has released the Delighter Booster that has been crash tested with the RideSafer and can be used with it for those younger children who wish to see out the window. Having a safe booster seat option that is crash tested with the RideSafer was a way for more flexibility and worldwide acceptance.
