Love the Quality, Wish it had more placement options
January 21, 2018
So far we are satisfied with our purchase of the Clek Oober. It was easy to put together and in doing so, it is clear that this is a very structurally sound/great quality booster seat. The material is soft, but unlike so other reviews, we have so far found it to withstand ALOT without any breakdown of material. Our only problem is that since the seat locks are rigid and not wide enough to click into the anchors if placed in the middle back seat, does that decrease the side impact safety. We have always placed our daughter's carseat in the middle to help with side impact safety, so it is different having the only option to be on the passenger or driver's side (backseat). We have fairly newer model camry and infinity sedans. I have seen other booster seats that have seat locks on adjustable straps, which seems nice (however I could also understand that may not be as safe as the "rigid seat locks"). All in all, we have been pleased with our new booster seat and our daughter is so happy she can be more of a "big girl", although she has found it a bit difficult to buckle her own seatbelt with the armrests present, but that is not a concern for us when we buckle her in.
- Ease of putting together
- Rigid latch system not very wide-can't place in middle seat
- Difficult for child to buckle seatbelt with armrest
