I emailed Graco, but I thought I'd ask here too. I looked through my Nautilus manual and don't see where is specifically says I can't do it- but it doesn't say you can use the Nautilus as a LATCHable booster either.
I read online that you can leave the Nautilus LATCH'ed when using it as a booster. Can you also leave the harness in if you don't use it at the same time as the seatbelt-KWIM? Here is what I would like to do- if it's safe. I usually only drive 1 or 2 of the kids around at a time, but it can be any combination of my 6, 5 or 3 year olds. The 5YO is big for his age and the 3YO is on the small side, so they don't use the same harness height. I would like to set the harness for my 3YO and LATCH the Nautilus in. Then it's all set for him to use. I could put my 5YO in the seat (sitting on "top" of the harness), adjust the headrest and use it as a booster for him, without having to take the thing apart and rethread the harness. Especially since we live outside of Buffalo, NY and it's COLD in the winter and I usually would have to change the seat up on the fly- so to speak. I can put a HBB on the other side of the back seat for my 6YO- or I can use that for my 5YO if the 3YO is in the Nautilus. Then I could transport any combination of the three boys with the seats I own, and without having to reconfigure anything. I figured I could put a cheap LBB in the trunk for my 6YO, just in case I had no choice but to sqeeze all 3 in, if something came up. Will this work????
