I own the monterey XT booster by diono in heather grey. I love that it is lightweight if we need to switch it between my husband and my vehicles. It is a great investment because it’ll carry you through as your child grows. The headrest easily moves up and down and the side panels can be expanded by quick and easy rotation on the back. We really like this booster seat and trust that it will keep our child comfortable and most of all safe.

parents love the monterey® XT!
“I received this seat as part of the wee spring parent panel. We were using a competitors booster seat for our 6 year old daughter but after switching to the diono Monterey xt booster seat she loves it and doesn’t want the other one anymore. We had to install the seat directly behind the passenger seat because when we tried in the middle of the seat the seat belts prevented the seat being flush with the back of the seat. The latch system is built directly into the seat making the latch process very easy. The width adjustment is very nice too and easy to use for bigger children. My little girl is very happy with this seat and so am I.“

“My 5 year old son was very excited to use his new Diono car seat. He picked the color, helped his dad set it up and couldn’t wait for his first ride in it. I like the back of the car seat that gives extra protection for him. He likes the independence of being able to use the real buckle himself. The snack and cup holder are easy for him to use and we’ve wiped it down a few time to keep it looking “new” he’s very proud of his seat. My husband said it was easy to install and he liked that the seat clips into the original seat. It gives it more of secure feeling then our old flimsy booster. Thanks to the weeSpring Parent Panel for sending me this booster!“

“I really like this booster seat. It’s light, very easy to use and assemble. We were able to use it in both our cars and it was not difficult to move from one to the other. It is very nicely padded and our six year old says that it is very comfy. She also loves the fact that there are two cup holders, one for a drink and the other for a snack. The only con we had with it is that because the seats in back of our SUV are a bit narrower the back piece made it too bulky to use back there. Without the back piece on it fit great, with it on not so much. Other than that the booster is great! Thanks to the weeSpring Parent Panel for sending me this booster!”

can monterey fit 3-across?
No, it is too wide to fit 3-across because it is 19-20″ (48.3-50.8cm) wide.
how do you install the monterey XT?
There is no installation required. You may place the booster seat directly on the vehicle seat if there are no LATCH anchors. If there are LATCH anchors, the LATCH system on the booster can be used, but it is not required.
what is the difference between monterey XT and cambria?
The Monterey XT comes with an 11 position headrest, expandable seat back, aluminum alloy reinforced sides lined with EPS foam for side impact protection, and a stronger seat back designed for added strength. The Cambria comes with a 6 position headrest and is lined with EPE foam for side impact protection. Both easily convert to a backless booster.
is there a top tether?
No, there is no top tether.
