hi, hope someone can help!! my wonderful(!) 2 year old has worked out how to slip her arms out of her car seat harness, which then loosens the lap belt part of it and she climbs out. it's the britax eclipse if that helps at all lol! short of supergluing her in or tying her up not sure what else to do. stuck until i work something out as can't trust her in the car!

Are the straps at the right height for her? If they aren't, then there is wiggle room in them. Do you take her coat/ jacket off as she gets in as well? the fewer layers of clothing she's wearing the better as the straps need to be really close to her body.

My 16 month old also gets arms out, and driving us mad on long journeys - someone said they'd seen a product on Dragons Den - but cant find anything on the web - does that ring any bells with nayone?
