Not sure there are any misdee. I could be wrong though. I thought that only the 3-point seat belts were considered safe.

im not 100% sure if you can get them still but Britax had a Freeway model which we used which can be used with a lapbelt only in the middle of the car.it fitted in tighter like that than with a 3 point.

mothercare do a britax eclipse si that only uses a lapbelt

it they're retractable lapbelts like in convertables they dont recommend them though, only solid lapbelts that you adjust tightness on yourself.

britax have a fitfinder website where you can put the model of your car in and it will tell you what will fit where in it.

i will keep a look out

good luck xx
