Integrated two-stage booster cushion

Integrated two-stage booster cushion  - Integrated booster cushion - Safety - Volvo XC60 Owners Manual - Volvo XC60

Volvo's optional integrated booster cushions are located in the outboard seating positions.

These booster cushions have been specially designed to help safeguard children in the rear seat. They should be stowed (folded down into the seat cushion) when not in use. When using an integrated booster cushion, the child must be secured with the vehicle's three-point seat belt.

Use these booster cushions only with children whose weight is between:
Stage 1: 48 80 lbs (22 36 kg)
Stage 2: 33 55 lbs (15 25 kg)
and whose height is between:
Stage 1: 45 55 in. (115 140 cm)
Stage 2: 37 47 in. (95 120 cm)
In Canada, Transport Canada's weight recommendation is 40 80 lbs (18 36 kg).

The booster cushions are designed to raise the child higher, so that the shoulder strap crosses over the child's collarbone, not over the child's neck. If using a booster cushion does not result in proper positioning of the shoulder strap, then the child should be placed in a properly secured child restraint (see page 40). The shoulder belt must never be placed behind the child's back or under the arm.
