SeatSnug is a first-of-its-kind product that enhances both the safety and comfort of children riding in booster seats.
Children in booster seats are at risk of injury and death due to seatbelt slack (looseness). A standard seatbelt allows slack to develop in the lap belt portion while children (or adults!) are riding in a vehicle. Seatbelt slack is acknowledged in the auto industry as a major contributor to injuries and deaths in vehicular accidents.
A loose seatbelt allows a child in a booster seat to bounce around, rock, tip, slide, and even fall over during normal vehicle maneuvering, which can result in injuries, such as a childs head being thrown against the side of the vehicle, as well as leading to child discomfort, including motion sickness. In frontal impact accidents or during panic stops, a loose seatbelt can further lead to a child submarining under the lap belt. Loose lap belts are also contributors to children, whether in a booster seat or riding without a booster seat, ejecting out of the seatbelt in rollover accidents, allowing children to fly around the vehicle, resulting in the potential for severe injuries and even deatheven though the seatbelt was buckled!
By gently securing a child while riding in a booster seat, SeatSnug substantially eliminates bouncing, rocking, tipping, falling over, submarining, and ejection, thus reducing the potential for injuries and death in vehicular accidents. At the same time, SeatSnug improves child stability and comfort.
SeatSnug can be easily and quickly clipped onto a vehicles existing factory installed seatbelt. Once a child in a booster seat is buckled up, the lap belt may be lightly tightened around the childs hips by pulling up on the shoulder strap to more safely secure the child, without affecting the normal operation of the shoulder strap. The child continues to have the comfort of free upper body movement. Thus, SeatSnug
