Few days ago I posted this post that refers to the car seats with front shield.
Over the weekend and today, as I did more research on data and studies of cushioned or cushioned chairs, I realized that many pages recommend them so children don't remove their harness. In the comments on the post, many parents asked me what to do then.
For a child to remove the harness while you are running is extremely dangerous! In principle, the first thing to do is make sure that:
- You have tightened enough so that you cannot pinch the harness strap.
- That the harness straps are not twisted (this is VERY important)
- Not wearing a jacket.
- that the harness is in good condition (lest it become loose only due to a defect in the saddle)
If you have confirmed that all this is or, it is strange, but it could be that your child is one of those 'escapist' cases that makes you very nervous when you drive, you look in the rearview mirror and see him on the point of getting out of the chair. Here is a case:
In the case of this child, the first thing we should have solved are the twisted ribbons. NEVER BRING YOUR CHILDREN LIKE THIS, IT IS HIGHLY DANGEROUS! (Sorry, but my hair stands on end when I see things like this)
So that this does not happen there are several accessories, which are not at all expensive and that can save you from more than a heart attack, without resorting to chair changes. For example:
- Houdini Stop: What this accessory does is keep the two ribbons together so you won't be able to take them off to get out. It does not interfere with or prevent the correct operation of the car seat and it is also proven that it does not slide upwards.
- 5 point plus: In this case, they are bands that close the space that can be on the sides where they would take out the arm.
- Other brands with the same function: If you go to your usual childcare store, they will surely have, if it is neither of these two accessories, any similar but from another brand. The idea is that they cannot separate the tapes or that they do not have space to put the arm through the sides. You decide.
I hope that with this I have been able to guide you a little more. It is not necessary to use a chair with a shield simply because the child takes his hands off the harness, as you can see that there are many more options.
