Not just Evenflo as the article suggests but all car seat makers apparently can set their own pass/fail guidelines with side impact testing. Weird that a 3rd party wouldn't perform or review these tests and set appropriate standards.

For younger children it's just safer to have them harnessed for longer than these manufacturer's suggest. 30-40 lbs is still too small to move to a full on booster in my opinion.

agreed, but evenflo blatantly disregarded results regarding children's safety just for sales and marketing purposes, there are other car seat manufactures that are more honest, you just have to do the research.
with so many options I won't be giving my money to evenflo, who knows what else they're hiding behind.

That is a USA article - in the US, there is only age and no weight restriction on using booster seat. The article is saying booster seats should not be used for children <40lb.
Transport Canada already regulates booster use for children >40lb.

make sure you check the manufacture date BEFORE you open up the box. Some Toyrsus location will give you a hard time to refund if you open up the box.

I got a few car seat in mail from them before with the clearance price and manufacture date were 2+ year ago.. those were not booster that I got so that left me with 2 or 3 years of use with a new born at that time.

Booster has 7-10 years expiry. You can make the call to keep or refund.

Just sold the one we had for our son (the red one from Canadian Tire). There was still 2.5 years left on it.

Just to give a quick review. My son never complained about this seat. With or without the back. He actually really enjoyed it.

As a parent we found it fit him well. It was super easy to clean. The covers can easily be taken off and washed. The seat plastic was also really easy to clean with wipes. It was a simple seat that served us well.

We had also bought one of those folding stool to put on the car flood so my son didn't have it legs just hanging.

Now he's way pass the weight that he need a booster so we decided to sell it. :)

On sale this is a great seat :)

The article said more than that..it was more about side impact testing and how that doesn't seem to be as regulated as front impact testing, but it's advertised on the boxes. Transport Canada only does frontal testing as well: https://tc.canada.ca/en/road-transporta ... at-testing

I own this Evenflo Big Kid High Back booster, but for my 9 year old. He started using it at 7 years old when he was past 45 lbs.

Boosters only use lower anchors to ensure they are not a projectile if unoccupied during a collision. The alternative is to buckle the seat belt across the booster when not in use. For my kids, it became habit to buckle the booster when exiting the vehicle.
