If you have a backless booster, do you need to buy a new seat?
No, you won’t need to by law, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t.
The new rules will only apply to new products appearing on the market. This means that you’ll notice that backless boosters are no longer sold as approved for use with children under 125 cm or weighing less than 22kg.
If you already have a backless booster you will be able to use the seat without breaking any rules.
While backless booster seats are small, convenient and cost less than their backed counterparts, many experts are concerned at the lack of protection they offer the child in the event of impact. In light of these changes, you might want to reassess your booster seat to make sure your little one’s kept as safe as possible.
