I was also thinking that in a 3 across it might not be handy since space is already an issue. Then again it might hold it up and help. Probably a car by car situation.

Exactly. If there was a bit more room, it would be nice to not have to reach between the seats and fish around for the buckle stalk; it would be great to know where it was each time you went to buckle!

Lots of older kids have difficulty and in some cars it really is a pain, even for the parents. My 7 year old and his 8 year old friend both have problems with it (admittedly they both have minor fine motor problems) and they are plenty old enough to be in boosters.

I would love something to hold up my son's belt stalk because I think it would help him be able to do it himself. I'd prefer something less fluffy though.

hmm...I think it is a cool idea for non rigid stalks. Maybe by the time my oldest is in a booster the manufacturers will catch on and make something that attaches to the booster and comes with it.

The owner of the company was really nice, and wrote me back. He is sending me 2 to try, and asked that I write a review of them for him. I am glad to try them, and see how they work, and will post pics and a review when I get them.

Did you mention that the model needs screws in the Turbos?

That's great! He is a super nice guy and has worked really hard to make sure he has a good product. Looking forward to hearing what you think.

Re: What do you all think of this new product?

I would love one. My dd just turned 6 and I am planning to get her a booster sometime in the coming months, perhaps just for occasional use, or perhaps as a primary seat (haven't decided yet). But she is EXTREMELY averse to doing anything for herself (has just recently been willing to buckle her chest clip - we're a long way from her totally buckling herself into a harnessed seat!). I think something like this might make her more willing to try buckling herself in a booster.
