Booster car seats are utilized to elevate the seating position of children in car seats. Booster seats are majorly used for children between the ages of four and 12.

Additionally, booster car seats provide protection to children whose height is under fifty-seven inches and are likely to suffer from injuries in case of a collision or accident.
