When can I safely move my child out of a Clek booster seat?

Children should use a booster seat UNTIL they meet the following criteria:

Oobr model (OB11U1, OB1U):

  • Weigh between 80-100 lb (36-45 kg); AND
  • Reach 4 ft. 9 in. (145 cm) in height; AND
  • Can pass the Safety Belt Fit Test (see steps below)

Ozzi and Olli models (OZ11U1, OZM1U, OL11U1, OLM1U, OLM2U and OLM3U):

  • Weigh between 80-120 lb (36-54 kg); AND
  • Reach 4 ft. 9 in. (145 cm) in height; AND
  • Can pass the Safety Belt Fit Test (see steps below)
  1. Have your child sit all the way back on the vehicle seat. Do his or her knees bend at the front edge of the seat? If they bend naturally, go to #2. If they don’t, return to the booster seat.
  2. Buckle the lap and shoulder belt. Be sure the lap belt rests on the upper legs or hips. If it does, go to #3. If it rests on the stomach, return to the booster seat.
  3. Be sure the shoulder belt rests on the shoulder or collarbone. If it does, go to #4. If it’s on the face or neck, return to the booster seat. Never put the shoulder belt under the child’s arm or behind the child’s back.
  4. Check whether your child maintains the correct seating position for as long as you are in the car. If your child slouches or shifts positions so the safety belt touches the face, neck or stomach, return your child to the booster seat.
