I left mine in someone's car at a checkpoint yesterday : Other than losing 30 dollars, it was a great checkpoint. We confiscated some REALLY nasty seats
Being a 'godmother' does not have any legal or custodial significance, and what I said still stands.
Would threatening to buy him a harnessed seat instead of a booster be enough incentive to keep him from messing with the belt?
