Escaping car seat - 2 year old

Ds, just turned 2, managed to open the button today on his rear facing car seat, Maxi cosi mica.
The first I knew was when I glance in the mirror back and his mirror facing his seat showed it was empty, whilst I was on the motorway!

Anyway, a scary 5 minutes until it was face to turn off and he was standing in the footwell behind my seat.

He can already open the clasp on the mountain buggy pram and babyzen pram. Is there any safe device I can add? I mean I told him no, but he’s literally just 2 years, I’m sure he will do it again

i need the car to leave my house basically

Thank you. He’s been strapped in twice since with strict words about DO NOT TOUCH, and hasn’t. But that was short ish drives, so will see what he does when bored and fiddles!

I really didn’t think they would be able to open at this age

The 5 point plus won't help if he is opening the buckle.

You could try sticking the rough side of velcro to the button.

If that doesn't work the in car safetyu centre sell a buckle cover but advise it is a last resort as would slow down releasing child from seat in emergency.

I'm sorry I know this was scary but I laughed so hard when i read he was standing in the foot-well behind my seat

There's actually a five point harness thing that you can buy and apparently not even Houdini can get out of it..... but your 2 year old might LOL (sorry i know its not funny)
