Ford Explorer: Child Safety / Booster Seats

Ford Explorer 2020-2022 Owners Manual / Child Safety / Booster Seats

WARNING: Do not put the shoulder section of the seatbelt or allow the child to put the shoulder section of the seatbelt under their arm or behind their back. Failure to follow this instruction could reduce the effectiveness of the seatbelt and increase the risk of injury or death in a crash.

Use a belt-positioning booster seat for children who have outgrown or no longer properly fit in a child safety restraint (generally children who are less than 57 in (1.45 m) tall, are greater than age 4 and less than age 12, and between 40 lb (18 kg) and 80 lb (36 kg) and upward to 100 lb (45 kg) if recommended by your child restraint manufacturer). Many state and provincial laws require that children use approved booster seats until they reach age eight, a height of 57 in (1.45 m) tall, or 80 lb (36 kg).

Booster seats should be used until you can answer YES to ALL of these questions when seated without a booster seat:

  • Can the child sit all the way back against their vehicle seat backrest with knees bent comfortably at the edge of the seat cushion?
  • Can the child sit without slouching?
  • Does the lap belt rest low across the hips?
  • Is the shoulder belt centered on the shoulder and chest?
  • Can the child stay seated like this for the whole trip?

Always use booster seats in conjunction with your vehicle lap and shoulder belt.
