STAR Special Needs = Special Protection.


STAR Special Needs offers the same protection as the standard STAR, with extra support accessories to accommodate children with a wide range of special health care needs. The restraint easily adjusts to provide support for children 25 to 105 pounds with torso heights up to 20 inches tall (torso height = seating position base to shoulder).

With its five-point restraint system and extra support accessories, the STAR Special Needs is a convenient, cost-effective solution to keeping children with special needs properly positioned and secured for the ride.
