Moving from a 5-point harness to a belted booster, that's a question that everybody asks. It's been the practice of parents in the past that once their child outgrows their second stage car seat, they just don't have a car seat anymore. Those children have been hurt in the last few years because they are not in a booster. What we want to do is outgrow our convertible seat, move into a high backed booster with a harness. So, 65-80 pounds or a maximum height is what we want to do when we outgrow the harness in the third stage seat and move into taking the harness out and use it as a seat belt adjuster. We don't want to move that child out of a third stage seat, until we have reached that 65-80 pounds or that maximum height.
