About Diono   from http://www.uk.diono.com/

Diono is the ideal solution for today’s "on the go" family, with state-of-the-art product designs that combine safety and convenience so that every family excursion can be the enjoyable experience it was meant to be.
Diono, formerly known as Sunshine Kids Juvenile Products, has worked to solve the real worries and hassles that parents face every day. Our first product, in fact, was born from a small but momentous family discussion following a documentary which demonstrated the consequences of improperly secured car seats in collision situations. Within the year, the purposeful kin had created a prototype that would come to be known as Mighty-Tite®—the world’s first and only seatbelt tightener—designed for ease of use and dependable peace of mind.
At its debut at the U.S. Juvenile Products Manufacturers Association (JPMA) show in October 1999, Diono’ Mighty-Tite—still in prototype form—took home the "Show Off" Product Innovation Award, along with a number of preorders from attendees who quickly recognized the promise this solution offered. Mighty-Tite went on to win the "Most Innovative Product" Award from Mother & Baby in 2002.
By then, Diono had officially established its first overseas wholesale operation in Staffordshire, England, serving chain and independent retailers throughout the United Kingdom and Europe.
2002 also marked the entrance of two more product introductions. One of these was the Super Mat, a popular product fashioned to contour to any vehicle seat and protect upholstery from permanent indentations caused by child safety seats.
But the excitement was far from over. In 2007, Diono rolled out of the Monterey booster seat, the first height- and width-adjustable child booster seat devised to accommodate children as they continue to grow up to 150 cm tall or 36 kg.

The Monterey booster seat won the prestigious Mother & Baby Award in 2008, this time for "Best Junior Car Seat," and has appeared in such magazines as Mother & Baby, Practical Parenting & Pregnancy, Who Minds and Village Life. The newer version, Monterey2 more recently won the Mother & Baby Gold "Best Car Seat Group 2,3".
Today, with more than 90 product offerings available in 54 countries worldwide and company offices in the U.S., the United Kingdom, Canada and Germany, Diono continues to answer families’ everyday needs with car seats, storage solutions, and related travel and stroller accessories that have earned the trust and respect of parents around the globe.
We look to the future with imagination, ingenuity and a solid commitment to providing you, our valued customer, with the quality and convenience you’ve come to expect from each and every Diono product.

I was very keen to ask a few question to Diono as we have the Monterey2™ Booster.

Well the evening start with a big Welcome from DIONO_UK

As a mum of two kids safety is a paramount in my eyes, my kids are my life my world .
So I wasted no time and saying hello to everyone on the twitter chat, I have been wanted to ask this question for a long time now so I did -

Do Car Seats Expire

I got the answer back that I have been eagaley awating - GREAT ?? Yes, they do! Monterey has an 8 expiration
Car seats have a life span because the plastic can be affected by heat changes and become brittle ...
I was so happy to finally know from the experts about this as well a know about our food having expiry dates but we never seem to know on the products that could one day save our kids life's.
I was learning more & more on the twitter chat more people asking other questions that where very good to know about .
Another question I had to ask because my daughter has now found that she can take off her seat belt !
Diono came up with some good advice -
