Since the early days of science humor, product design has been challenged for improved use and attraction. Clek takes the basic baby booster seat and elevates it for greater safety, and practicality.
Usually as your child nears the age of 4, and grows out of the baby seat, parents wonder whether their child should ride with a regular car safety strap or a buy a booster seat. Booster seats are baby seats for the car, aimed to offer better ride protection for older children. They don’t have harnesses like baby car seats but government guidelines show that uses of booster seats with older children (generally up to 4 feet 9 inches) provide more protection from car accidents. The correct decision is to provide your child with a booster seat.
Many manufacturers make booster seats. They’re designed to raise a child a few inches (the boost) and offer side and back protection. Booster seats are traditionally designed as seats for all-around protection that are very easy to attach to a car seat.
Clek has developed a car seat, called the Olli that departs from the traditional boost seat because it’s backless. It’s designed for easy carrying so your child can get boosted in a taxi, a bus, a train, or jet. Olli is designed for kids who have developed enough autonomy to protest if they had to use a typical booster seat. The seat has been scientifically engineered to assure protection and support without appearing like a traditional booster seat.
Olli is an award-winning belt-positioning backless booster. It says to your 6-12 year-old that it’s still cool to be safe in the car. Olli boosts your child’s height ensuring that the vehicle’s seat belt fits them just right while an additional layer of padding eliminates numb-bum syndrome. Olli is easily transportable from vehicle to vehicle and is especially handy while traveling from airport to rental car or even the taxi.
At age 5 and above, most parents realize that their children love the challenge to strive for independency. Children want to ride like mom, dad, and everyone else do. A booster car seat isn’t just another form of child rearing accessory for modern age parents. It’s more protective assurance for your child’s safety when riding with you. Clek’s Olli, like all Clek car seats have attractive child-friendly patterns. They are LATCH compatible for swift installation and removal from LATCH-equipped cars (2003 and later). Removing the supportive back of a Clek backless booster may seem risky but thorough engineering makes it great for older kids who would put up quite a rumpus when told to use the booster. Clek Olli is the perfect compromise.
More cities and States are beginning to regulate the use of booster seats.
While the American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that children should use booster seats to the age of 13. Does that make sense? After all, in most States, children can drive at age 16. Let’s just say, up to 9 or 10 years or until you feel they’ve reached a proper size is an advisable guide to follow. Kids will be kids until they feel they’ve grown up. Until then, push for the booster.
