how to convert cosco HBB to a booster?

my dad has a Cosco High Back Booster in his truck. he needs to convert it from the 5 point to the booster seat for my niece (6 years old, 40 something pounds)

anyone know how to do this? it has the adjuster thing on the straps so do i just pull that apart or what?

i'm trying to keep her in the high back as long as possible. my sister has a backless booster for her but i think she needs more protection than that will offer.

anyway, help is appreciated.

The best thing to do is read the manual... if a hard copy is not available, you should be able to find one online or contact the manufacturer, as needed. Do you know what model she has?

There will likely be a metal piece(s) on the back of the seat that the harness is attached to... something like a splitter plate or metal rods. It will just be a matter of detaching the harness from those pieces and feeding the metal braces for the lower parts of the harness through the bottom of the seat to remove the harness completely.

Is it a Cosco or an Evenflo? Evenflos have the harness adjuster on the straps. To get the harness out of that one, you have to take a screwdriver and pop the little metal rings off the back of the seat. Then the straps are one long strap. Remove the crotch strap and done. If it is indeed a Cosco, then loosen the straps all the way, until you see the metal splitter plate. Pull the shoulders straps through. It will be one long strap. Remove the crotch strap and done.
