Are seatbelt extenders legal?

My daughter has transitioned to a booster seat and it's a real pain to buckle the seat belt around the booster because the seatbelt clip is buried deep in my car. I see on Amazon that you can buy seatbelt extenders but I want to know if these are legal or not in Ontario?

Legal doesn't mean safe. Most if not all car seat/booster seat manufacturers specifically say not to use a seatbelt extender.

Your vehicle manufacturer might say something similar in the manual. Just deal with the belt being a PITA

I personally got 2 of them from Toyota for free after submitting a request at my local dealer, but like Shaner said not sure if transport Canada allows them for car seat/booster seat .
