Graco Nautilus 65 LX 3-in-1 Harness Booster

Graco’s top-rated Nautilus 65 LX 3-in-1 harness booster goes the distance, from toddler to youth, to help keep your growing child safe.  This toddler car seat secures your child in a 5-point harness from 22-65 pounds, converts to a belt-positioning, high back booster seat from 30-100 pounds, and becomes a backless booster seat from 40-120 pounds. The Simply Safe Adjust harness allows you to adjust the harness and headrest together as your child grows, with no time-consuming re-threading. You’ll appreciate the ease of the fuss-free harness, for easy in and out, while your travel partner enjoys the comfy body insert, personal cup holder and storage compartment.

I bought this 3-in-1 harness booster after my baby grew out of his infant seat. I read that this one was very comfortable and because I go on road trips to visit family quite frequently this was a really important feature. I was extremely impressed when I received it because it was already assembled and all I had to do was pull up the back. It is also easy to set up in the car and feels nice and secure.

The shoulder straps adjust super easily and I don’t have to fiddle with a bunch of slots. All I have to do is move the entire piece up and the shoulder straps are adjusted in under a minute. I really like the fact that once my son no longer needs the five-point harness I can transform the seat into a side bolstered booster seat. After he is out of that it will become just a regular booster and eventually help him transition into just sitting without a child seat.

The strap guards have a tendency to fall off every time my son gets in or out of the seat. They are very easy to put back on but it does become a nuisance when it is multiple times in one shopping trip. I have put a couple of stitches on mine so that they can still move as they should but won’t come off and that has solved the problem for me. You could also try a safety pin if you don’t sew. I also wish that the cup-holder was a bit bigger because some of his larger sippy cups don’t fit into it. This is a minor problem and now he has a “car sippy” because it’s one of the few that fit.

I think it’s a great car seat at a great price. I am happy to see that it’s comfortable and easy to use. My son doesn’t hate car rides as much as he used to thanks to this seat. The fact that it will save me a lot of money in the long run is another reason I love this 3-in-1 harness booster. I have and will continue to recommend this seat to parents who have toddlers and babies who don’t fit into infant car seats anymore.
