SeatSnug child restraint
Price: $79.95 Available: (03) 9761 1110 or www.proquip.com.au FROM March, Queensland laws will require children up to seven to sit in a booster seat with a harness or seat belt. The problem is that seat belts allow slack, so it can be difficult to keep children stable in booster seats. Now Melbourne company Pro Quip has released an American-made device called SeatSnug which clips over the original buckle on a three-point seat belt and has a childproof release. The SeatSnug buckle is claimed to eliminate bouncing, rocking, tipping, falling over, submarining and ejection. The device quickly converts a three-point belt into having a lower lap retention portion similar to that of a tightened aircraft belt. Last year, SeatSnug received the US National Parenting Center’s Seal of Approval, but the company has not yet sought approval or endorsements from
any Australian associations.
