Booster seats

Once your child has grown out of a rear-facing child car seat, it's time to switch to a booster seat or booster cushion. We offer safe and flexible booster seats and booster cushions with ISOFIX brackets and belt mounting.


ISOFIX is the international standard for attachment points for child safety seats in passenger cars. Under the current UN/ECE R14 Regulation, all new vehicles produced since February 2013 are required to have ISOFIX lower anchorages.

Car size

A compact car is having between 100-109 cubic feet of combined passenger and cargo volume.

A mid-size car must have between 110 and 119 combined cubic feet of volume and have a max length of 196.8.

A full-size car is any car with more than 120 cubic feet of combined volume.

Changing from a rear-facing car seat to a forward-facing booster seat


At Axkid we recommend changing from a rear-facing car seat to a forward-facing booster seat later than the regulations state. It is difficult to say exactly when your child will change from a rear-facing to a forward-facing car seat. Up to about 6-7 years of age, children can sit backwards, but it is mainly the length that determines when it is time for the child to ride forwards. We prefer that the switch to forward-facing travel takes place after the child has passed 125 cm. When your child has grown out of a rear-facing car seat, but has not yet reached the optimal length for the car's three-point seat belt, it is time to change to a forward-facing booster seat or booster cushion.

It is the position of the seat belt that determines whether your child should have a booster seat or booster cushion. If the belt ends up too far out on the child's shoulder or over the child's stomach in a booster cushion, it is best to wait with it and choose a booster seat instead. The booster seat is equipped with a so-called belt adjuster that ensures that the seat belt is in the correct position. Axkid offers safe and flexible high back booster seats with ISOFIX brackets and belt mounting. All of our booster seats fit all car seats that are equipped with a three-point belt.


Booster cushion


The very last time before the child has the length inside the car's three-point belt, the booster cushion is recommended. The booster cushion is suitable for children between 10, 11 and 12 years and with a length of less than 135 cm. The car cushion makes the car journey safer for children up to 36 kilos. The booster cushion is flexible and easy to move between different cars or to take with you on the trip. The upholstery can be easily removed to be machine washed if needed. The car cushion can be used in all seats where there is a three-point belt and where the airbag is disconnected. According to Swedish legislation, children who are shorter than 135 centimeters must use a child car seat, booster cushion or other special protective device instead of or together with the seat belt.
