Carfoldio is revising the recommended use information for all mifold products to continue to be consistent with regulations and best practice guidelines. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) is proposing some revisions to the US regulations, in some cases to better harmonize with Transport Canada. In anticipation of those changes and to maintain maximum harmonization, Carfoldio has revised the usage recommendations for all mifold booster seats manufactured starting in March 2021.
All mifold products currently in use and manufactured before March 2021 are regulated for use in accordance with the information provided on those products. Always use mifold products according to the information provided on the product labels and in the instruction manual.

When should a child start using a belt positioning booster seat?
We believe that all children should continue to use their child restraint with a five-point harness as long as possible.
Children should only graduate into a belt positioning booster seat, when they have outgrown their child restraint with a five-point harness.
“Outgrown” means the child’s weight or height exceeds the use limits for the car seat.
Even then, a child should only use a belt positioning booster seat when they can sit properly for the entire duration of each trip.
“Sitting properly” means the child must remain seated without slouching under the lap belt, moving the shoulder belt under arm or behind back, or leaning forward or sideways moving out of position, so the vehicle belt remains properly positioned throughout the entire journey.
