The Oobr booster seat is designed with a free-pivoting back in order to fit different vehicle seat angles and help ensure that the back of the booster seat will always be in contact with the vehicle seat back. Oobr was designed such that this free-pivoting back can be used in conjunction with Oobr's Rigid LATCH (UAS) system to provide a controlled maximum recline position.
The LATCH (UAS) system operates like the seat track on your driver's seat by sliding fore and aft, locking in different positions. This locks the booster seat relative to the vehicle seat, while the seat belt secures the child in the booster seat relative to the vehicle seat.
Providing the booster seat's lower LATCH (UAS) connectors and the booster seat back or headrest is in contact with the vehicle seat back or headrest, that recline position is safe for use.
NOTE: NEVER use the recline feature without the booster seat's lower LATCH (UAS) connectors securely attached to the vehicle's lower anchors. When using the booster seat without using the LATCH (UAS) connectors, the back of this booster seat base MUST contact the vehicle seat back.
