My youngest is 13 and I keep encountering new and brilliant infant, toddler and child products I would have loved to have when he was younger. This is one of them! The new ClypX ComfiGO® booster seat is more comfortable and travel friendly than those bulky booster seats. The ComfiGO booster seat is FMVSS 213 certified for use in the US and made for children ages 4 – 12, weighing over 40 lbs, and between 40 to 57 inches tall.
There are 2 adjustments you have to make at first with your child, then it is set up for their use. You will only need to readjust as your child grows (every few months). Don’t worry, the adjustments are very easy and no tools are needed. Once you have these adjustments made, your child can even buckle themselves into the seat easily.
To start, you need to place your comfiGO on your car’s seat, centered and NOT on top of any covers. There are 2 secure clips (optional) to use if your car’s seat has the hooks to attach. This just keeps the booster seat in place as your child gets in and sits down. It has a skid pad so it stays in place fairly well on its own or you can hold it as they get in. I would just attach mine and not have to worry about it shifting. Now you are ready to make those 2 adjustments (the first use).
Attach the car’s shoulder strap into the shoulder belt positioning strap of ComfiGO. To adjust the height of that positioning strap, you just open the (red) gate on the clip and adjust it so it rests about 1 ” above your child’s shoulder. I have the video below that shows you in steps.
The second adjustment is for the lap belt. If your child is tall/older than this may not be as necessary, but for most children in booster seats, the lap belt will fall too high (above their thighs) and this is why we use booster seats with them. The lap belt clip is the device that is between your child’s legs. You want to open the gate (red) in the clip and adjust so that the lap belt runs across their upper thighs (1″ below belly button) rather than across their abdomen. Then just simply slide the car’s lap belt up into the clip and buckle them in. The video below shows more.
Getting out of the car is easy. Just unbuckle your car’s seat belt, unclip from the hip belt and that’s it. The shoulder positioning clip can stay connected to the car’s shoulder strap unless you are taking ComfiGO on travels with you, then unhook the shoulder clip and go! The ComfiGO booster seat easily slips into a seat back for storage or in a large purse. If a guest is in your back seat, no need to remove the booster seat. It can be sat on and straps will stay flat when not in use. What a great option to keep in a seat back if you ride share passengers who may have kids and traveling! Adjustments are easy and it is so compact.
