A new addition to this thread.
I have just ordered one of these, as the material slipping seems to be the issue.

Unlike lots, I do get to look here, but usually it depends on my full time joB and two small children, so today is my opportunity to see if anyone had replied!
Thanks for the advise, and thanks for the patronising comments about my chIlds safety. In my previous job I was lucky to deal with road deaths on a daily basis having cut people from cars and washing their brains off my clothing afterwards. I'm very well aware of seatbelts importance.
I have Isofix in my car. It's great. I wanted to see what other people have done/ had/ overcome, not a winge and moan about my in ability to either reply, bow at your feet, or other forms of self gratification. I like this forum and happily pay the subscription to ask for help, but give people a chance.
I had wondered if anyone had replaced the seat foam or welded on Isofix loops. The babies bucket is happily secured with the belts, but the high back needs, like in a car a bolster.
Dave, I'm with you. There should be an acknowledgement of posts and perhaps an indication of action taken or to be taken. It just doesn't always pan out that way for various reasons.
I liken it to the milk in the fridge. It's easy to take for granted advice given on this forum because we all give it at different times and then expect it in return. Just like we put milk in the fridge and always expect it to be there when we want it.
An observation and nothing more, the OP raised the question a week ago and has not responded on the post at all to the comments made, the topic was bound to provoke strong reactions since the safety of children is implied, but there has been no update from him that he has sorted the problem or is even addressing it.
Is it only me that finds this a little less than satisfactory? To appeal for advice and then not even acknowledge the comments made whilst still continuing to post on other threads may seem a little like stoking a fire and then withdrawing - which I am sure is not the case, but surely a simple response is warranted?
Concerns are being expressed, these could easily be allayed by a quick reply updating us as to what action is being taken (if any) or whether an alternative solution has been found.....
Am I being unreasonable to expect such a thing from the OP ?
|Jiggles||This is the type of situation that gaffer tape was invented for|
Booster seats that submarine were not uncommon in our day and may still be. It tends to be because the foam is too squidgy. The foam has to act as a bed base and seat base, unlike a car seat. We changed our van.
Have a look at Isofix child seating.

Get it checked PROPERLY - the child's life is at risk... as is your own if the whole seat detaches and hits you in the back of the neck in the evnt of a sudden stop.
There can be no compromise on safety - "it'll do" is not appropriate.
