Description

Head and Shoulders Above the Rest!
From the makers of the #1-rated KeyFit® and NextFit®, the IIHS Best Bet KidFit® Booster is designed with 10 positions of DuoZone® side-impact protection for the way kids grow. With height adjustment from the waist—instead of at the neck—KidFit® offers both head and shoulder protection throughout every stage.

Built for Protection, Stability, and Comfort
KidFit® is equipped with premium LATCH connectors and a SuperCinch® one-pull tightener to stabilize the seat for easy in/out and keep it secured when unoccupied. Belt guides make it easy to position the vehicle seat belt and integrated side wings are lined with EPS energy-absorbing foam for improved impact protection.

A contoured ErgoBoost® Plus seat with triple foam padding provides comfort and support in all the right places, and a 2-position backrest adjusts to mimic the vehicle seat position. The backrest is also removable to create a backless booster for older children.

Convenient and Roadtrip-Ready
KidFit® Zip also includes bonus seat/backrest cushions that easily zip on to provide extra padding and protect the fabrics underneath. They’re just as easy to zip off for cleaning or storage. All fabrics, including armrest covers, are removable and machine-washable.

Two dishwasher-safe cup holders fold out of the way when empty and are easy to remove for cleaning. A bonus storage console fits into either cup holder to carry big kid necessities.

KidFit Zip 2-in-1 Belt Positioning Booster Car Seat- Genesis is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 43.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Assembly ok - directions limited Assembly directions are limited. Couldn't get the anchor tightening strap to budge after installing the latch anchors. Lack of clear online assistance. Pulled the strap every which way possible while applying pressure to the seat bottom. Says latches are unnecessary, but I prefer the extra security. Experience so far is so so.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Booster seat! I bought this product with my first child and we loved it! It so comfortable for long trips and the latching system is awesome! It makes you feel so safe for long trips away from home! I will definitely invest in our next child one of these same seats! Love Chicco products!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to install. Easy to clean. Child loves it. Summary of My Findings (4.75 out of 5): I’m really happy with this booster. My child, who can be quite particular now that she’s four, was very comfortable and happy both with and without a winter coat on. It looks good, is easy to clean, and will grow with my child until she is able to sit in a seat without safety products. Side impact protection and a “Best Best” rating from IIHS is noteworthy. And because it’s a snap to put in and take out, I don’t worry about the hassle of sending her off with friends or family that don’t have their own booster installed. One thing to keep in mind is whether the headrests in your car can tilt back or be removed completely. Some can't, and if this is the case, the booster back won't sit flush on the back of the car's seat because of how tall the booster back is (even in the lowest position). Core Functions and Safety (5 out of 5): The core function of the booster is to provide proper elevation for a child that has outgrown a convertible car seat or fixed 3-point harness forward-facing seat so that the child can be safely belted in using a standard seatbelt. The booster does this well, and offers an extra level of safety by incorporating side impact protection around the child’s head and mid-section. I’m not a safety engineer, but I assume that the added safety features are effective as the seat did receive a “Best Bet” from IIHS. Setup and Installation (5 out of 5): After unpacking the box I installed the car seat without looking at the instructions to see how easy the process was. After finishing the installation in 12 minutes, I went back to the instructions to see that everything was done correctly (it was). LATCH connectors are hard to mess up these days, and these were easy to use, as expected. But the booster has a one-step tightening strap at the front/center that allows really easy cinching of the seat snug to the back of the car seat (I am referring to the actual bench seat of the car, not the booster). This was really an awesome feature that ensures a snug fit without effort. As the child grows, the back support/protection unit will slide up vertically as needed. This is a simple squeeze lever that allows you to adjust the height with one hand (listen for the clicks). I only had hiccup with the installation, which would have been avoided if I had read the instructions. The booster came with two sets of armrest covers, and one was already installed. I thought that the second set was actually supposed to slide over the entire armrest, and I wasted about 7 or 8 minutes before I realized that this wasn’t the case. Had I avoided this step, installation would have been under 6 or 7 minutes I would guess. Features (4.5 out of 5): Features are a big success overall, but I’ll start with the only mild downside of the entire product; how the seat belt is connected across the booster. Remembering that this process is all about safety, it’s hardly even a sticking point for me, but I’ll mention it nonetheless. The places where the seatbelt should be threaded across the booster are clearly marked by bright orange plastic guides, so you always know where you’re headed when you strap your kid into the seat. The belt is to be pre-threaded into the top guide (shoulder height of the child) and does an OK job of keeping the belt in easy reach and untangled when not snapped in. But the problem is that when the belt is stretched across the child’s lap, it must follow a path underneath the armrest before being put into the car’s seat belt receptacle. This is a bit of a challenge due to the limited clearance between the booster seat and the armrest. Leaning across my child to secure her (further complicated if I have one free hand or she is acting up or kicking, etc.) can be tricky. Again, if this provides me the safest means of securing my child, then no worries. But sometimes speed can prevent a meltdown, and like a NASCAR pit crew, seconds count. The booster comes with two cup holders, and one of the holders allows you to insert an included tray with lid. My child likes that a lot, as she can triple the amount of stuff she can squirrel away without our knowledge. Lastly, this booster hit a home run when it designed its zip-off pads (both for the seat and backrest portions of the booster). I have washed our previous convertible car seat padding multiple times, and the disassembly/re-assembly time is easily at 45 minutes total. These pads came off in 10 seconds, and back on in about 90 seconds (it is a bit tricky getting the zipper started the first time after it’s been taken off. But this is truly an awesome feature. This is where I can mention the second set of armrests again. To change/wash these, you’ll need to remove the entire armrest assemble from the booster, then use a flathead screwdriver to depress a tab on the underside of the armrest. An insert will slide out and you can slide off/slide on new or washed covers.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very easy to use! I love this car seat for my 4 year old. It was very easy to use but still durable I even installed it in my car without my husbands help. My son loves the freedom to buckle himself and so do I. I recommend this product!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy and Comfortable I received this car seat about 2 weeks ago and my daughter loves it! It was easy to put together. The instructions were well articulated and easy to follow. I did it myself in less then 5 minutes. My daughter says it is comfortable which is a plus and she loves the snack container that fits in the cup holder. That was a nice surprise for her. The reason I gave it 4 stars and not 5 is the back feels a little "loose" but I am assuming that is the way it was manufactured for the ease of adjusting it up as your child grows. All and all I would recommend this car seat and have liked it so far!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Booster Car Seat We have been using a Graco booster seat for a year now and this Chicco one is much nicer. It's held in place better and easy to get in and out if needed. The arm rests are really nice for my 5 year old. Our old Graco, the seat belt would constantly slip out of the notch and get into her face. This Chicco booster seat, holds the seat belt in place much nicer.

is this car seat rear facing?

Asked by: sarabb
Hi Sara, We have this item and it is not nor is it intended to be a rear-facing seat. It is only intended to be a booster seat for children who are tall/big enough to fit into a booster seat utilizing your vehicle's existing lap/shoulder safety belt. Additionally your child should have the patience and maturity to be in a seatbelt as opposed to a five-point harness. Even if this seat was intended to be rear-facing, I doubt anyone would be able to have the LATCH straps reach around the entire depth of the seat if you tried to install it rear facing. If you're looking for a rear-facing seat, you'll likely want to look at the... -Infant: http://www.chiccoshop.com/gear/car-seats/infant/ -OR- -Convertible: http://www.chiccoshop.com/gear/car-seats/convertible/ ... sections to choose from models there. Hope this help! Kind regards, Mario

Is the Chicco worth the price? I bought a Britax for my now 6 year old and within 3 months the padding was coming out and the side head piece came out. I wanted to love my Britax, especially since it was over $250, but I'm left sorely disappointed. 

Asked by: Kikimmagee
We find that most people who purchase the KidFit infant car seat are happy with their purchase and enjoy the EZ Zip feature for easy removing and cleaning.
