Lower anchor connectors:

Affix have connectors that keeps the seat more secured. It’s occupied for safe your child from the accident .Tightening the lower anchor connector straps is done by pulling on the two straps at the front of the seat. Utilizing the lower anchor connectors on a booster prevents you or the child from having to remember to buckle the seat when not in use.These anchors increase the safety of the seat in a car crash.

This seat can carry 30 to 100 lb. weight and the height is about 57’’ tall. So as you note it that when your child as big your child no need for safety seat. Graco requires 4  year old child to use the backless affix bus as safety consider minimum age of child should be 5 years old.

Normally these are the limits of this car seat:

Graco always take multiple test with their new modal so this car is also crash and side impact tested and meet the US safety standard that is a big achievement.

The cup holder holds the drink and snacks within arm’s reach.If you are purchasing the backless version, the cupholder is hidden underneath the seat in a little compartment.

Care and Maintenance:

Owning a car seat is easier but if you want to run it long, care and maintenance are important. The affix is easy to clean as seat cushion is machine washable and with mild soap you can clean metal and plastic parts.

The seat is easy to use belt guide. The belt guide is wide so your child easily pull from it and adjust the belt. Having a wide belt guide also prevents the belt from getting hung up within the guide.
