shoulder seat belt. Have the child sit upright and all the way back, then answer the

the edge of the seat?
• Does the shoulder belt cross between the

possible, touching the child's thighs?
• Will the child be able to stay seated like this

booster seat until the seat belt fits properly without a booster seat.
