Seat Snug, A child stability device.
SeatSnug® is a first-of-its-kind product that improves both the safety and comfort of children riding in booster seats. The patented SeatSnug is a small palm sized safety device that clips onto existing seatbelts to allow slack to be removed in the lap belt, keeping the user in the safest possible position (as viewed in the video above).
I have to admit, when I received this device to test out on my son’s booster seat, I was a little intimidated. Upon opening the box it looked complicated, however with the video online and easy directions, I was able to install in no time. Not to mention my son feels more secure with this too. There have been several times where his lap belt was not tight and he tipped over in the booster sleep (while he was sleeping).
Children in booster seats are at risk of injury and death due to seatbelt slack (looseness). Seatbelt slack is acknowledged in the auto industry as a major contributor to injuries and deaths in vehicular accidents. In fact, Lap Belt Cinch, Inc. (LBC), developer of the CG-Lock technology and makers of the CG-Lock, SeatSnug and SeatSnug-MAX occupant safety products, returned from this year's SEMA Expo with yet another top award in hand, the SEMA 2010 Best New Product Award was given to LBC for their child safety product, SeatSnug.
So now you might be thinking, where can I get this life-saving device? It's available in many locations, such as Babies R Us, Bed, Bath, & Beyond, and Walmart to name a few. For the complete list of store locations click here. To read more about the SeatSnug products, view this link.
