Does such a product exist??! I have just left a panicked message on OT's answerphone but don't anticipate getting a response any time this year..
Had a nightmare this afternoon, attempting to drive through a city centre in the after school rush hour, with DS (age 6 and his SNs mean he knows how naughty he is being but you can't reason with him or make him understand how dangerous it is!) literally hanging off my neck where he's undone the seatbelt and dragged himself still attached the special car seat, forwards and jammed himself in the footwell! I had to keep pulling over in places where you can't! He thought it was hilarious even when his face was jammed between his seat and the back of the car seat and his legs were all bent up!
I was frantic. Had to phone DH in the end to calm down.. he couldn't do anything but I couldn't see how I could get home with a free-floating DS loose in the car, wearing his carseat like a tortoise wears a shell!! Sounds funny now but it wasn't...
I have been Googling for half an hour.. I'm sure I've heard of something which firmly covers the seat belt locking mechanism.. but I can't find anything appropriate.
Can any one advise? I can't have another trip like that! He usually goes to school on transport thank God.. but it was sports day this afternoon..
i have absolutly no idea. i shall watch with great interest though as i need something like this for Ds.
he has a frightening habbit of opening the seatbelt and then trying to open his window and stick his head out.
i either have him in the back where i cant stop him getting to the window or in the front where he tries to kick the gearstick out of gear or turn the hazard on.
so i am hoping that you get some inspired repsonses as i could do with some tips too.
Yes Hairy, it's a five point harness. Thanks 2Shoes.. but I found that page.. there's not actually anything on it is there? Or am I looking with my eyes shut? It mentions locking clips but I think it means replacement normal seat belt clips.. not sure..
Oh thank you both of you! And it's only a fiver (you both linked to the same product on different sites.. great minds! )
Saker no it's the actually the catch itself.. this plastic thing should stop him. Is this the one you got from Halfords Whoops? I will just have to hope he can't break it.. he is very strong but doesn't use his hands in the normal way (weak pincer grip altho that's hard to believe seeing as he such a little Houdini...!)
