Why does the NSA have the patent of a car seat convertible between child/adult ?

This invention relates to vehicle seats and more particularly to integrated seats for motor vehicles capable of being moved between an adult mode position and a child mode position.

Integrated seats which contemplate both a child and an adult mode are to be contrasted with the general practice which exists wherein the seats provided are adult seats and separate child seat units are used to accommodate children. The usual situation is that the separate units contain their own seat belt assemblies or occupant restraints and the separate child's unit is affixed to the existing adult seat by strapping the separate child unit to the adult seat by the adult seat belt assembly.
