Monterey Expandable Booster Seat (Shadow) Product Image


Aluminum-Reinforced Seat

EPS Foam and Aluminum Reinforcements for Safety

The Monterey features an aluminum reinforced seat back and sides, which provide a reliable, strong foundation. Energy absorbing EPS foam, which lines the extra deep reinforced sides and adjustable headrest, provides full side impact protection. In addition, the seat bottom is reinforced for increased lap belt safety and angled to prevent submarining. LATCH connectors keep the Monterey secure in the vehicle when the seat is not occupied (LATCH use is optional).

Accomodates Growing Children

Adjustable Height and Width Means Seat Grows with Child

This booster seat is designed for children between 30 to 120 pounds and 38 to 63 inches tall. As children grow, the Monterey can be adjusted with the dial on the seat back, which increases the seat's width to accommodate a child's shoulders up to 20 inches wide. The adjustable headrest offers 11 different height settings.

Additionally, the Monterey can be used as a backless booster.

Plush Cloth Surface

AirTek Foam Provides Comfy Ride

AirTek foam padding and a plush cloth surface cushion your child, keeping them comfortable as they ride. AirTek padding provides luxurious cushioning with exceptional breathability, and the cloth surface feels soft and gentle against your child's skin. In addition, two recline positions allow the Monterey to fit a wide variety of vehicle seats and further enhance comfort.

Two Cup Holders

Convenient Features for Child and Parents

The seat back is removable so it can be packed flat, making storage or travel a breeze. Two extra deep cup holders are angled to keep drinks upright and provide a place to keep toys and other items within easy reach. When not needed, both cup holders fold out of the way. Rubber bottom grips protect your vehicle's upholstery and ensure no-slip installation.

NCAP Crash Tested

Testing and Warranty Information

This booster seat surpasses federal crash test standards and meets NCAP standards, the industry benchmark for verifying child seat performance in severe accident conditions. The seat has a generous 10-year life span. The Diono Monterey Expandable Booster is backed by a manufacturer's limited one-year warranty.

Fabulous seat!

By tampamommy

from Tampa, FL, United States

Comments about Diono Monterey Booster Car Seat - Shadow:

I bought this seat for my daughter who was too tall for her other seat, but not ready for a booster. I love how the seat expands in both width and height. It is super easy to install and adjust when they grow. It has an easy to clean cover and handy cup holders. It is also easy to take the back off and convert it to a booster seat. It's also very nice that the booster can stay latched into your car's seat. I highly recommend this seat!

so comfortable

By Krystal

from Alberta, Canada

Comments about Diono Monterey Booster Car Seat - Shadow:

We bought this seat for our daughter and really love it. The latch system is a huge comfort for me as a Mom knowing that the seat is very secure. I feel bad for our son who is in a backless booster and the padding between the two feels like he isn't sitting on anything. I hope that Diono will make a backless booster soon!

    Comments about Diono Monterey Booster Car Seat - Shadow:

    We bought this booster seat to replace my 3 1/2 year olds car seat for my husband's car that she outgrew. She is not a small toddler so we love the fact that you can adjust the shoulder width. It's very easy to install and use as well as stylish. Our daughter says its "Sooooooo Comfy". We liked it so much we bought a second one for my car. The seat belt guide on mine was an older one and didn't fit the seat belt right but they sent a new one. We got it in about a week and it took less than 5 minutes to change.

      Comments about Diono Monterey Booster Car Seat - Shadow:

      Just an awesome booster, especially if you are trying to fit an older/bigger kid. I really wanted my 9 year old (54 inches, 75 lbs) to have side-impact protection that you just don't get with a backless booster. Most boosters that claim to go up to 57" he's on the verge of outgrowing (yet he's nowhere near tall enough for the belt in the van not to cut into his neck). I found two boosters that go up to 63" tall, the Diono Monterey and the Britax Parkway. I choose the Monterey over the Parkway for these reasons:

      Pros: Steel reinforced back and sides, EPS foam, LATCH attachment to seat (this is to keep the seat in place, not your kid). Expandable side wings to accommodate growing torsos. The side-impact protection of the Monterey just covers more of the child's side than the Parkway, especially if the headrest is raised up, due to the interesting shape of the side wings.

      The only thing this seat doesn't have is the extra belt clip that Britax has on its boosters to prevent submarining. However, the Monterey is a far superior seat to the Parkway in construction and side impact protection (my son's arms are actually inside the wings).

      Personally, I don't use belt-positioning boosters until my kids are 65-70 lbs (I buy extended harnessing carseats, there are lots to choose from in every price range) but when your kid is ready for a booster, I highly recommend this one!

      A note: if you see negative reviews of this product regarding belt path issues, those are for previous year models, the 2013 models have been corrected.
