To determine if a lap/shoulder belt

To determine if a lap/shoulder belt properly fits a child, have the child put on the seat belt, then ask yourself:

1. Does the child sit all the way back against the seat?

2. Do the childs knees bend comfortably over the edge of the seat?

3. Does the shoulder belt cross between the childs neck and arm?

4. Is the lap part of the belt as low as possible, touching the childs thighs?

5. Will the child be able to stay seated like this for the whole trip?

If you answer yes to all these questions, the child is ready to wear the lap/shoulder belt correctly. If you answer no to any question, the child needs to ride on a booster seat.
