Aren’t they all just booster seats?
No, actually they’re not.
The main purpose of a “booster seat” is to raise a seated child up to the height where the vehicle’s lap sash seatbelt can be more effective in reducing the occupant movement in an impact.
The “adult height” for which seatbelts are designed is 145cm – generally in Australia a child won’t reach this minimum height until they are at least 9 years old.
