When is the best time to begin using the AACE?
AACE can be used when a child outgrows their harnessed convertible car seat by weight and height, and as long as they can sit with their back against the booster seat with their knees bent at the edge of the booster without slouching, and as long as they can sit properly restrained in the seat for long periods of time, and can do this every time. For high back mode, the child should be at least 4 years old, and be within the height range of 38-60 inches, and weight range of 40-110 pounds. For no back mode, the child should be at least 5 years old, and be within the height range of 38-60 inches, and weight range of 50-120 pounds.
How much extra shoulder room does my child actually get?
As your child grows in stature, they need a booster that does the same. Your child will gain an additional 2 inches of shoulder room from the lowest headrest position to the highest headrest position.
Is the AACE aircraft approved?
The AACE is not certified for aircraft use. Airplane seats have only a lap belt. Booster seats, including the AACE, must be used with a Lap/Shoulder Belt.
What is the function of the Lower Anchor Connectors?
They secure your AACE to the vehicle seat when not in use and allow you to utilize the recline feature in high back mode. The lower anchor connectors are not an installation method. The vehicle lap and shoulder belt is how you secure your child.
How can I keep the shoulder belt from falling off my child's shoulders in the no back mode?
The high back mode provides a shoulder belt guide that properly positions the vehicle shoulder belt across your child's chest and shoulder. When transitioning to the no back mode, you may need to use the shoulder belt positioning clip (included with purchase) to obtain proper placement of the vehicle shoulder belt. Please refer to your instruction manual for detailed instructions.
What is the recommended height and weight for a child using the AACE as a high back booster or no back booster?
For high back mode, the child should be at least 4 years old, and be within the height range of 38-60 inches and weight range of 40-110 pounds. For no back mode, the child should be at least 5 years old, and be within the height range of 38-60 inches and weight range of 50-120 pounds.

I was recently in a crash. Do I have to replace my child's car seat?
1. Whenever a crash takes place, you should always ensure that your insurance agent is aware that your car seat was involved so they can replace it through your claim. 2. NHTSA Guidelines: NHTSA recommends that car seats be replaced following a moderate or severe crash in order to ensure a continued high level of crash protection for child passengers.
