Is the Graco Nautilus 65 LX 3 in 1 right for your family? Find out in our 2021 Review

Graco Nautilus LX Booster

Graco has been manufacturing the Nautilus 65 LX car seat since 2007, with minor modifications and improvements along the way. The Nautilus 65 LX 3-in-1 provides parents with a 5-point harness car seat, highback booster seat, and backless booster seat all in one. If your child is over 22 lbs then you can invest in this car seat and use it all the way until children are grown.

Graco also makes available a similar Graco Nautilus 65 version that does not have the increased weight limit up to 120 lbs. This increased weight limit lets parents delay the transition to a regular seatbelt and instead leave children buckled safely into the car seat longer. Parents won’t find much difference in the design of the two seats, and the difference in price is usually fairly negligible.

Child size limits for the Graco Nautilus LX 3-in-1

5 Point Harness mode High back booster Backless booster
Weight range 22 – 65 pounds 30 – 120 pounds 40 – 120 pounds
Height range 27 – 49 inches 38 – 57 inches 40 – 57 inches

Read About Graco TurboBooster Highback Booster Seat In Our 2021 Review

Graco Turbobooster High Back Booster

Parents shopping for an affordable high back booster seat often settle on the TurboBooster HighBack Booster Seat from Graco. This low price option provides a safe, high back booster seat for children over 40 lbs. As children grow larger this highback seat easily converts into a backless booster seat.

Booster seats elevate children higher up in the back seat of a vehicle so that their seat belt fits correctly. A safe booster seat should move the shoulder belt away from the child’s neck and over towards the shoulder blade. Similarly, the lap belt should move off the soft abdomen area of your child and over onto the large bones of their legs and hips. Graco accomplishes this while still providing your child a comfortable ride with:

  • Head support that is height adjustable.
  • Padded armrests that adjust up and down.
  • Energy-absorbing, EPS foam.
  • Plush head and body inserts.
  • Open-loop belt guides to help buckling.

Graco fills the TurboBooster Highback Booster Seat with well thought out features that improve comfort and safety.


Will the Graco Tranzitions 3-in-1 booster car seat grow well with your child?

Graco Tranzitions 3-in-1 Harness Booster Convertible Car Seat (Kyte)

The Graco Tranzitions 3-in-1 Harness Booster Seat is an improvement over the older Nautilus, released back in 2007. The Tranzitions is a sleeker, narrower design that works better than the bulky Nautilus for placing multiple car seats in your vehicle.

It’s lighter too, for families who often travel or switch car seats from vehicle to vehicle. We liked that it’s also a nice-looking seat, which you don’t always find in one so budget-friendly and practical.

Key Features

  • Simply Safe Adjust harness system – no re-thread harness and headrest adjust together
  • One-handed adjustable 8 position headrest
  • 2 integrated cup holders
  • Open loop seat belt guides
  • Machine washable seat pad, body pillow, and harness covers
  • 3 color choices
  • 1-year warranty
  • 7-year expiration
