Thought these were no longer legal

Parents should no longer be able to buy backless booster seats – more commonly known as booster cushions – for children shorter than 125cm and weighing less than 22kg. Previously children weighing as little as 15kg could use them. If you’ve owned a booster cushion since before February 9 2017, you can continue to use it as long as the child is three-years or older and weighs more than 15kg. The law regarding child seats states that children must use them until they are either 12-years old or 135cm (4ft 4) tall, whichever comes first.

If they were illegal they wouldn’t be sold. The regulations changed and now depend on weight and height instead of age to ensure smaller children are safe and in high backed seats for longer if needed.

It reads like these type are no longer suitable for group 2


Delete your first post then
Manufacturers can now only make booster cushions approved as group 3. This won’t affect any existing booster cushions in group 2 and you’ll still be able to use them.

This suggested it shouldn’t be marketed as group 2 seat.

Asda are selling the same as Group 3

Graco Booster Basic Black Group 3 Booster seat
The Graco Booster seat is a Group 3 Booster seat, for a child between 22-36kg (from around 6 to 12 years). It is used in the forward facing position.
The two retractable cup-holders also help to keep spills to a minimum!
Group 3

• 22-36kg
• Suitable from 6- 12 years
• Forward facing
• The booster seat is secured in the car using the vehicle's seat belt
• The child is restrained on the seat using the vehicle's seat belt
• Two retractable cup holders
• Black design to suit most car interiors

To ensure maximum safety for children on car journeys, parents are legally required to fit their vehicles with car seats until their children reach the age of 12 or a height of 135cm.
As a result, parents will need to buy a number of car seats for their children at different stages of their life.
However, with a number of rules regarding the type of car seat children will need depending on their size and weight, it's important that parents identify which car seat suits the needs of their family most effectively.

It’s a ten pound booster seat posted onto a deals website, it’s heat for the price of the item, i genuinely cannot be bothered to read your long an unnecessary comment, if reputable shops like b+m and Argos are selling it than I’m sure it’s safe, you even said yourself it’s confusing. Now excuse me, I have to get back to reality

It wouldn’t be saving money if people bought an unsuitable seat that they couldn’t use.


patriciamchale has kindly cleared this up.

And also edited the original post which said it was a group 2 / 3 car seat and suitable for 15kg

​agreed. They are legal to use. "safe" though for the old regulations just means performed adequately in a 30mph forward collision, 20mph rear and no side impact testing required.
So how safe it is in actuality, would depend on how realistic a reflection that is on your usual driving routes/conditions.
High back boosters are definitely safer though equally definitely not found for £10

Enough name calling children.

This reminds me of i joystick i owned for my spectrum in the 80's
I've got one that I use for my 4 year old son. I thought they were fine . Are they ? I can't see why they would be unsafe.

It is good value for anyone who a backless booster suits their needs.No one is contradicting that.

Value of money is determined by the quality of the item for the money rather than price alone. B&M sell it because it meets the minimum standards and is safe when you know under what circumstances.

I did vote it hot it's a good deal just trying to help people to make an informed decision if they are tempted to know if it's the right deal for their particular travels.

As you asked . .​This one usually has a strap with a red clip at the end to adjust the height of the cars shoulder belt so it's better than one without.

It's just about ensuring the shoulder belt is at the correct height. The high back booster usually has multiple height options, when you adjust the headrest the shoulder belt guide rises too. A booster cushion is the same height even though there is a big difference in how tall the child using it is.

Also the high back boosters offer some side impact protection to varying degrees depending on the model and the brand. The booster cushion has none.

Big gamble with your child's life though, think I'd rather read the well intended advice than try and be rude.
Tesco have a Graco high back booster seat in it's baby event for £25. Whilst not brilliant its significantly better than this. With a low back booster there is the risk of it flying out from under a childs legs in an accident. People don't realise that a child's pelvis is not suitable for any kind of booster seat until the age of 4 1/2 years, its not wide enough yet.

​You are welcome. The head and neck support offered by a high back booster could make a significant difference if someone hits you. Heads, necks and backs are hard to heal.
