Child Restraint System Ratings
NHTSA began rating child restraint systems, which include booster seats, in 2002 -- using a grading system of "A," "B," or "C" to denote how easy certain features are to use on safety seats.
NHTSA rated 101 child safety seats from 19 different manufacturers for 2007. Of the 101 seats rated, 81 percent received an overall score of “A.” In 2006, 85 percent of rated seats received an overall score of “A.” NHTSA's Ease of Use Ratings program strives to prompt child restraint system (CRS) manufacturers to improve their products and make them easier for consumers to use.
