1. A highchair with a horizontally adjustable tray comprising:

  • a pair of supports on opposed sides of the highchair each having a plurality of studs on an inside surface thereof;

    a tray movably coupled between the supports including two underlying engagement members disposed on the supports each having a plurality of apertures, each of the apertures having an elastic projection projected above the aperture so as to cause the tray to be in a locked position with respect to the supports; and

    an actuator slidably attached to an undersurface of the tray including two vertical members each having a plurality of wedge members corresponding in position to the apertures of the engagement member and one or more elastic elements each having one end biased against the undersurface of the tray and the other end biased against the actuator, wherein the projected elastic projections are structured to restrict the movements of the wedge members so as to effect the locking of the actuator to the tray, and the wedge members are structured to be able to move pass the retracted elastic projections to effect a disengagement of the actuator from the tray;

    further wherein each of the supports further comprises a tube disposed on a leg of the highchair and a plurality of studs releasably coupled to the highchair.
