Hi there

Does anyone know of a lap belt fastening car seat for a 7 year old? My old camper Van only has lap belts due to the age and I would love to start taking little Charlie out in it.

However I am struggling to find a car seat that works with a lap belt, has anyone got any suggestions?

Hi at the age of 7 is a booster seat not sufficient?
although personally im not sure i would feel safe with just a lap belt anyway sorry dont mean to offend x

There are none. I would take the camper van to a garage and get three point seat belts installed.

Booster cushions with a lap belt are not allowed any way- if there was an accident the child would be as seriously hurt as if they weren't wearing a belt.

Thanks a lot for your responses. I wasn't aware you could get new 3 point belts put into old vans. But as that is an option I will go for that as sounds like the safest

Cheers and here's to Charlie's first camping trip!
