Graco® CONNEXT Backless Booster Seat Review

I have three children ages 5, 6 and 7 currently in booster seats. My father-in-law stays with us six weeks out of the year and has always wanted to take my seven year old son out to breakfast or to the Farmer’s Market with him but I have had to decline because of the lack of booster seat issue.

Today, my seven year old son proudly went out on the town with his Papa because we were able to quickly install the CONNEXT Backless Booster Seat with Latch System by Graco® in his truck. Designed for children ages 4 to 10 (40 to 100 lbs) and 40” to 57” tall this rear-adjust latch system secures the booster seat to the vehicle seat.

The booster seat was very easy to attach securely with the latch system and the booster seat ultimately stays secure so the child or parent can easily buckle the seat belt. I have had several neighbors laugh that my children are still in booster seats (Graco 5 point harness boosters) in our main vehicles and we do not allow them to ride in any vehicle without a booster seat. I personally believe that my children’s safety comes first and I will keep them in booster seats until they no longer meet the specifications.

Graco® CONNEXT Backless Booster Seats with Latch System are available in blue or red styles and can be purchased at for the SRP of only $17.98. I find this to be very affordable and we will use this when we have visitors come who do not one installed in their vehicle. I can feel confident that this model booster seat has been crash tested to “meet or exceed U.S. safety standards.”
