Hi,


I have 4-year old twin boys and they are constantly unbuckling their seat belts while sitting in their booster seats.

Hi there - if they are unbuckling their seatbelts, they are not mature enough to sit in booster seats.

We have the Alpha Omega Booster Seats, 5 pt harness type seat.

You do know that it only goes up to 40 lbs with the harness.

I would let them know how dangerous this is and that you will not be taking them anywhere if they continue. My daughter would do this right on the freeway and then I would have to pull over. I finally found that the Recaro 5 point is hard to unbuckle. Once I threatened to not take her to the build a bear workshop and then didn't when she did it again she stopped. She had leanred her lesson. Here in California it is a $1000 fine if you are caught with yoru kids out of their seatbelt.
