You get 20% OFF ALL High Back Boosters!

Halfords is participating in the #saferseat campaign!

You get 20% OFF ALL HIGH BACK BOOSTERS when you turn in your Booster cushion! #binthebooster now! And make your child safer with a HBB which adds side impact protection for body and head as well as offering support while they are sleeping!

NB!
Please be aware that boosters are for big kids and are not suitable for children under the age of 4. If your child weighs more than 40lbs and is under 4 years old he will be safer harnessed than he is with seat belt! Don’t be discouraged – there are options for high percentile pre-schoolers. You need a car seat that harnesses to 25kg/55lbs.

The current law requires children to travel in a car seat until they are 135cm tall or 12 years old – but it’s highly recommended by all major safety organisations that they use a belt positioning booster until they are 150cm tall!!

Still not sure if you want to switch over to a high back booster?

Then you should watch these videos showing actual car seat crash testing being done! And take a look at the huge difference between using just a cushion – and using a full HBB.

[…] Jan James, CEO of Good Egg Safety, which provides safety advice for families in the UK comments:
“We welcome this powerful footage from Britax which really drives home the dangers of booster cushions. What makes this so poignant is the fact that when using these, parents are at least trying to protect their children by lifting them up to ensure a better fit of seat belt, not realising that their child is still in significant danger in an impact. The nerves in the neck don’t stretch well and a collision which throws the head forward with the force demonstrated here could potentially result in catastrophic injuries to their child as a result. Good Egg Safety highly recommends the use of a high back booster for that extra vital protection. As witnessed here; it will really make the difference.” [..]  *Britax website
