When I secure my booster seat to the vehicle’s LATCH system, there is a gap between my booster seat and the vehicle seat back. Is this safe?
Some vehicles have lower LATCH anchors placed deeper in the crease of the vehicle seat than others do, which results in variation in the size of the gap between the back of the booster seat and the back of the vehicle seat.
If using Olli or Ozzi, it is recommended that you position the booster seat firmly against the seat back with the LATCH connectors tucked into the the crease between the seat back and the seat cushion. If you are unable to do so and the gap is causing your child to slouch or sit improperly, then you should NOT use this booster seat.
If using the Oobr model in the Backless mode, adjust the booster seat so that the back of the booster seat sits firmly against the vehicle seat back. DO NOT allow a gap between the booster seat and the vehicle seat back.
If using the Oobr model in the Full back mode, adjust the booster seat so that the booster seat headrest is in contact with the front surface of the vehicle seat back or headrest. DO NOT allow a gap between the booster seat headrest and the vehicle seat back or headrest. Providing that the child is properly secured in the booster seat and that the booster seat’s LATCH Connectors are connected to the vehicle’s LATCH lower anchors, a gap between the booster seat base and the vehicle seat back is acceptable.
