I noticed that in the Big W baby catalogue they have a few booster seats with a tether strap. The most expensive one (Infa Optimas - $248) has it's own 5 point harness, but can you use a safety harness with the other models to make them safer?. What sort of harness - there seems to be a safety harness and a Protecta harness. What is the difference?
Can anyone recommend these booster seats? Is the Infa Spartan for $78 any good or would the more expensive ones be better.

You should come hang in the car restraints section.
Anywho, the Infa seats can be used with a harness.
The difference between the child safety harness, and the protecta is the protecta can be threaded through the seat slots of some (approved) car seats, and it can be adjusted from the front.
The child safety harness is adjustable from the back and cannot be used with seat slots, only over the top back of the seat.
Some Infa seats you need to get a piggyback tether clip and replace the ones in your car, the other seats have a tether strap with a connector hook attached for the harness to attach to.

I was looking at the catalog too for when DS1 outgrows his 18Kg seat in my parents car. Which would you suggest Child restraints? I definately want one that will go with a protecta harness and that is tethered to the car.

The infa trek8/vento and optimus are the same seat, but the fabrics and plushness differ. The top slots are 45cm, where as other car seats range from 35cm to 40cm.
All car seats FF in Au have top tether unless they are polystyrene boosters.

Uncommonsense - as your DS is under 4yrs I would be looking at one with an inbuilt 5pt harness rather then a booster seat. The Infa Trek8/Secure Optimus would be great for him.
