FORT MILL, S.C. – April 9, 2018: Britax safety is now even more affordable with the introduction of the Essentials™ by Britax® new SkylineTM Belt-Positioning Booster. This booster, built with growing children in mind, is designed with safety features such as a 10-position quick adjust head restraint for head protection at all stages of growth, while also keeping in mind that “big kids” demand stylish seats, comfortable fabrics and cup holders.

Built upon the premise that every family deserves peace of mind, the new Essentials by Britax brand extends our 50 year safety heritage. This $99.99 priced Skyline Belt-Positioning Booster includes safety features such as two layers of side impact protection, a deep, foam-lined shell, and a head restraint for full head and torso protection. It also includes color-coded belt guides for proper seatbelt positioning, and flexible push-button lower connectors that help stabilize the booster during travel.

“It may seem like they are growing up fast, but big kids need big safety, too,” stated Kelly Thomas, Britax Brand Manager. “Big kids feel more confident and grown up in these sleek, fashionable seats so no one thinks they’re riding in a baby seat. And we know both kids and parents will love the two dishwasher-safe cup holders and the vibrant, comfortable fabrics.”

The Skyline Belt-Positioning Booster is available for purchase online and at mass and independent retailers. Caregivers may choose between a cheerful teal and sleek dusk (black).

Fitting children from 40-120 pounds and 38-63 inches in the forward-facing position, Essentials by Britax advises Skyline Belt-Positioning Booster owners follow the American Academy of Pediatricians (AAP) and National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) recommendations that children remain in a five-point harness system for as long as possible until they reach the maximum weight or height for their car seat.
