I have a cab and 3 year old twin boys, and use booster seats. Since there is nothing to secure the seats to in a cab, the only hay to use the boosters is to use the seat belts. I had my shop guys look for a way to install an anchor hook, but there was not place to put it, and the boosters that will fit in the cab do not have a latch system, some installing anchors in the bottom seat of the cab wont work.

I assume you are using the seatbelt? Did you use the little metal clip that holds the waistbelt and shoulder belt tight together?

I use a booster in my 911 so no seatbelt but in my old BMW that's how I held in the carseat.

You can easily remove the bottom pieces of the back seat. If you have a TORX screw driver you can remove the folding part of the seat as well. My dealer did it for me free.

You might want to put a couple of towels to get some cusioning between the seat and the board. When fixing it, make sure you press hard against the car seat with your knee or something like that while tightening the belt. Pulling the belt all the way out and then retracting it puts it into locking mode. After you have it tight enough, the Boulevard has a locking latch that secures the belt. With enough work, you should have very little wiggle in the seat.

Even though I've gotten the Boulevard to work for me, I'm considering other options as this barely leaves any movement room for my daughter's legs.
