Current booster evaluations

best bet booster logo

A Best Bet booster provides good lap and shoulder belt fit for typical 4 to 8 year-olds in almost any car, minivan or SUV. You can buy boosters as highbacks or as backless seats — both kinds are represented here. Some boosters can be used in both modes. For those seats, the Best Bet rating applies to the mode or modes indicated.
