We’ve had such a tremendous reaction from moms & dads about the new AFFIX™ Booster with LATCH System. Naturally, when a new seat launches, there are questions about how it works and why it’s special. To make it easy for you to decide if this is the right seat for you, we’ve compiled some of the frequently asked questions—and expert answers—below.

Where is it available?
The AFFIX Highback Booster seat is currently available at Babies “R” Us stores nationwide. You can find pricing information and more details about the product by clicking here.

What colors does the AFFIX come in?
Right now, there are two cool fashions for AFFIX. The Vivi fashion is hot pink and steel grey trimmed in white, and the Sterling fashion is a combo of silvery grey and black, also trimmed in white. Both fashions are sleek and modern—perfect to appeal to your “big kid.”

Keep your eye out, though, for more availability and fun colors coming soon!

What are the dimensions of this youth booster?
The dimensions of the AFFIX are 16.75”W x 10.5”D x 25.4”H (with back) 16.75”W x 10.5”D x 9”H(without back).

What are the benefits of using the AFFIX booster with LATCH system?
The AFFIX Youth Boosters with LATCH have a one-hand front-adjust LATCH system which allows the user to secure the booster seat to the vehicle while securing their child with the vehicle lap/shoulder belt. The LATCH system creates a secure connection between your vehicle seat and the booster seat, keeping the booster in place even when the seat is not in use. Secondly, the secure connection keeps the booster steady for easier self-buckling for your independent child.

Is there a weight limit for use with the AFFIX LATCH System?
Since the LATCH system only secures the booster seat to the vehicle in this application, it may be used regardless of the weight of the child (up to the maximum seat weight rating of 100lbs. in both highback and backless modes).

What should I keep in mind before using the AFFIX Youth Booster with LATCH?
The user should verify the following before using the LATCH system to attach their booster seat:

  • The LATCH does not interfere with other vehicle belt connectors
  • The vehicle lap/shoulder belt and LATCH anchorages align side-to-side. (In other words, the LATCH system aligns the booster properly for use with the vehicle lap/shoulder belt)

Can I use the AFFIX in the center seating position of my car?
The LATCH system on the AFFIX may also be used in the center seating position. When using the LATCH system in the center position, the following rules will also apply in addition to those above:

  • Distance between the two inboard LATCH anchors must be 11” or greater
  • The vehicle owner’s manual must permit the use of LATCH in the center seating position
  • There must not be any contact or obstructions that could damage the CRS straps and/or the vehicle safety belts
  • The LATCH does not interfere with other vehicle belt connectors

The AFFIX Youth booster can also be used in the center position without the LATCH system attached.  If this is the case you should make sure to secure the booster seat in the vehicle using the center lap shoulder belt when the booster seat is not in use.

We really hope you like the AFFIX youth booster with LATCH system as much as we do! If you have any other questions, be sure to reach out and we can help answer them!
