Anyone try the “Buckle Booster” for car seats?

The recessed seat belt receptacles are obvioulsy terrible for car seats / booster seats. There are some who say that seat belt extenders should not be used as they make the seat belt less safe.

I just saw this new product from Seat Belt Extenders called the Buckle Booster which is supposed to solve this problem without extending the length of the seat belt. Has anyone tried this and confirmed that it works in a Model Y?
 
These wont work. The buckles in the back seat are recessed and they don't pull out to even be able to apply. You could get extenders; however, as I understand it using extenders impacts the safety protocols related to the seatbelts. I don't remember if it was warranty or some sort of liability issue in the event of an accident. For this reason I decided not to purchase.
