I've been doing a bunch of TV segments lately on how to keep your kids safer as you're traveling this holiday season. One of the things that always bothered me is how my daughter, who is very small for her age, goes bouncing around in her booster seat every time we hit a bump. My older son also makes me crazy because inevitably he will try to lie down in the back seat as we're driving and the seat belt is completely loose on him, offering very little protection. The safety of kids riding in cars has always been of great concern for me and around the holidays it's even more so.
Enter Seat Snug! This is a great new product that permanently attaches to your seat belt and removes slack from the lap portion of the seat belt. It still allows for movement across the chest portion so kids are comfortable yet much safer. In fact, a statistic I read from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration states that a major contributor to the injuries children sustain in a car accident is from the seat belt not being snug enough.
Seat Snug is easy to install – took me only a few minutes – and can be disengaged when someone other than your child is riding in that seat.
