    The new Infasecure Comfi Caprice has a harness height of 42cm with padding, 44 without. It's the highest height markers out at the moment. Can you measure you son's seated height? (Bum to shoulder up against a wall). You can also harness passed the turn to booster line to the top slots as it has been safely tested with the top slots with a 32kg dummy.

    Your son HAS to be in a 5 point harness until he is at least 4. H harnesses are illegal under the age of 4 and shouldn't be used with a full seatbelt, it's dangerous and a seatbelt is far safer.

    Maybe take him and the carseat into RAC (or similar) and see if they can have a look at it for you. Here in Tas, RACT checks car seat installation and fit free of charge, I assume a similar service is offered Australia wide.

    The luxi caprice is an 0-8 seat, so because it's designed to fit many different ages it has low markers.

    Try any of the infasecure convertible boosters. They have been tested as safe to use with the 5pt harness in the top slots (above the turn to booster line) up to 32kg. H harnesses are actually quite dangerous and are discourages unless you only have a lap belt, and a child that young really shouldn't be in a booster with adult seat belt because at that age, in a crash it can cause internal decapitation. It's best to keep children in the inbuilt 5pt harness for as long as possible.

    The height markers on seats are new standards and show where the seats have been safety tested for use, from what i've read legally a 6 month old can use a forward facing seat even if bellow the height markers, it's just not safety tested (or at all safe)
    Actually, if you read the fine print on the RTA information, you'll see that it says the ages are an approximate guide. You should always follow the guidelines of the seat manufacturers as to which restraint you have your child in.

    Sell the 0-8 seat and buy a convertible booster. It is SO dangerous for a 2 year old to be in a booster seat, a 2 year old should still be RF if possible!

    The Rallye (Infasecure) at Big W is $168 and they should be having their baby sale soon so it could be cheaper, and it'll keep your son safe.

    I have my very tall 6 yr old harnessed in a babylove easy combo. She will easily fit in height-wise for another year. If you get another four years out of a new seat with a built-in harness that can then convert into a booster, it's pretty good value. I only purchased this for my kid about 3 months before her fourth birthday, by the way, as that's when I moved back to Australia from overseas. Every time she stays with relatives, she sits on an untethered booster and literally flies all over the backseat. She is not restrained properly by a seatbelt at all (and is not an active or naughty kid, either). I also just purchased a new rear-facing and forward-facing seat for my baby. There are several seats out there that simply are not tall enough to last a child 'til age 4. Unfortunately if you've purchased one of these, you do really just get stuck with making another purchase for your child. It's an investment. Keep your kid safe!

    I would purchase a convertable booster seat and sell the 0-8 yr seat or contact Infa to discuss your dilema. They may say you can keep using the harness past the booster marker provided your child was under 32kgs.

    A 2yr old should never be in a booster seat. Please watch this video
