The Safety 1st Summit Booster has it's pro's and con's. The pro's of it is it is sold for a great price and you can get years of use out of it since it. The requirements for the use of it is forward facing which is from 22lbs up to a 40lb child. Once your child reaches the 40lbs it can then be used as a belt positioning booster for a child in the weight requirement of 40lbs to 100lbs. Also it has 3 reclining settings,arm rest that you can put up if your child don't want down,cup holder on the left side of the base part,then on the right side of the base part it has a few little sections where you can put your child's sun glasses,snack or just whatever you choose. It also has 3 buckle settings you can easily adjust as your child grows, 5 point harness settings that is also very easy to adjust from the back of the seat & has a strap in the front to tighten & loosen the harness strap. When your child gets big enough to use it as the belt positioning booster it has 5 position shoulder belt guides on each side. The faults i have found is it says it is easy to take the cover off to clean,but i tried doing so with my oldest sons seat and it wasn't as easy as they said it would be to get the seat cover off and when it came time to put it back on it was somewhat easy,but the snaps that go around the harness straps snapped right back into place,but will not stay that way. Every time my son gets in it i have to snap the little snap fittings that go around the harness straps back in which they still don't stay. My other fault with it is it sets on a base which is great when your child is little because it helps them to be able to see out the windows which can keep them entertained for the ride,but when the child gets older & taller it makes them set up to high i think. My son will be 5yrs old in March & his head is pretty close to being the same height of the front seats head rest which makes me be concerned of what could happen if it didn't do its job if we were to get in a accident & him being so high up. I would recommend the Safety 1st Summit Booster for a child in the range on 22lbs-40lbs,but as for older children I recommend getting just a regular booster that didn't set on a base.
