Churchill Booster by Merritt Manufacturing
The Churchill Backless Booster from Merritt Manufacturing is a belt positioning booster that incorporates a seat base and torso vest, and headrest that provides positioning support. This is a vehicle booster seat so it provides positioning support while the car's own seat belt provides the safety restraint. There are multiple options for the torso and seat positioning. It has a maximum weight limit of 175 lbs and fits individuals up to 72". The super low profile seat simplifies transfers onto the system and allows other riders to get in/out/and around the seat with ease. The unique headrest supports the head and resists lateral movement while the optional EZ-Up cap can help resist forward slumping.

** The Attachment Bracket Kit is designed for use in vehicles that do not have LATCH.
The Churchill must be installed with LATCH or with the Attachment Bracket kit. All
Vehicles 2003 and newer are equipped with LATCH in at least two rear seating positions,
so there should be no installation issues for these vehicles and the Attachment Bracket
will not be necessary. Many 2000 – 2002 models also have LATCH (See your vehicle
owner’s manual to verify if LATCH is present).
For vehicles without LATCH, the attachment bracket can only be used on vehicle seats
that you can slide a ruler, or similar object, from the back side of the vehicle seat through
the crack in the vehicle seat (where the seat bottom and seat back come together) through
to the front side of the seat. This can usually be done in mini-vans and SUVs. Generally,
the Attachment Bracket cannot be installed in the back seat of sedans. Installation of the
Attachment Bracket Kit does require that a hole be drilled through the vehicle’s floor

Questions about the Churchill Booster by Merritt Manufacturing others have asked!
- From Natalie at 1/1/15 9:22 AM
- Can you use this seat on an airplane?
The Churchill requires the installation of a strap system that goes up and over the back of a vehicle seat. This is then anchored to the floor or seat itself. It is not possible to do this on an airplane.
