2011 Child Booster Seat Rating – Belt Fit

October 13, 2011 by Parrish Law Firm, PLLC

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) evaluated the belt fit of the variety of booster seats on the market in 2011 and found 31 booster seats meet their top rating of “best bet”. This gives parents more of a selection than ever when choosing a booster seat perfect for their child. Please note this IIHS rating is only a test for belt fit and not an actual crash test rating of the booster seat.

Here is the IIHS actual test protocol procedure when evaluating a booster seat for belt fit:

The Institute assesses boosters using a special crash test dummy representing an average-size 6 year-old. Engineers measure how 3-point lap and shoulder belts fit the dummy in each of the tested boosters under 4 conditions that span the range of safety belt configurations in vehicle models. An overall rating for each booster is then assigned based on the range of scores for the lap and shoulder belt measurements. – IIHS.org

The winners of the 2011 IIHS 31 top picks for booster seats for belt fit are:

Please note the model style as high back or backless as some of these seats have both versions with only one of the styles receiving the best bet rating.
