Have you seen this?

It's old, but I just came across it looking for something that would make a floppy car seat clicky thing not floppy, and found it interesting?

Re: Have you seen this?

Their logic is flawed and there are simply too many variables to make the determination that they have made. With the car seat misuse rate as high as it is, you cannot take mainstream crash data and determine that a seat belt is just as safe. They also just talk about deaths. Yes a child is a seat belt is less likely to die, but they're more likely to suffer serious injury. I would rather my child not be as safe as possible, not just kept alive.

Lol sorry. The part that the seat belt clicks into? I was trying to find an adapter or something to add to mine so it stands up on its own instead of being floppy, so my kiddo will be able to click it easier and it won't fall down into the seat.

Try a small section of pool noodle around the buckle stalk.

For the life of me I couldn't come up with anything with that description lol It's called a belt or buckle stalk or the female end of the buckle

Not as cheap as a pool noodle, but a buckle biter is a fun option.

I was looking for this earlier and I can't even find any place online that sells them. Last I heard people weren't getting their orders and having to file with PayPal.
