Have you ever noticed that a toddler is actually a mini Macgyver? From their keen abilities to get their heads into spaces that are far smaller than they can get out of to getting your keys logged in a seemingly impossible heater gate, they are probably the most impressive little creatures in existence. This being said as parents we have to be on our game, especially when it comes to safety. We put up locks that are more difficult than Rubix cubes to our cupboards and door handles, but how many times do we fight them with the seat belt? How many times have you gone to unbuckle your little monster only to find out with more stealth than a magician the little one has unlatched themselves?
For us this is a constant battle with our little man, he really likes to play with the buckle, so we have to go through the time consuming process of full latch in with his seat for every short carseat switch, when its possible. I am was living in great fear of the time when he has the opportunity to move up to booster as I fear he will be running around our van whenever he wants, until I got to try Beltlock. So Beltlock, is a small cover that goes over the locking mechanism and prevents the child from unlocking it. It is very effective, because it actually requires you to use a key to release. The key required is any key not one provided with it so you don't have to worry about losing it, and you also don't have to worry about your kids escaping. The time it takes to install is literally seconds and to release is only maybe 2 seconds longer than without it. So there is very little inconvience to it, which if you have those things on your counters and stove nobs you know that is rare with a baby proofing item.
I would recommend this to anyone with a little escape artist like my little man. I like to know that in the most dangerous place they go, the car they are as safe as I can physically make them, and with Beltlock keeping them in their restraints its a good piece of mind. My only potential criticism is when you utilize it with larger carseats, if you have a large vehicle that buckles in the middle you may have trouble maneuvering over a small child to get it unlatched. That however is a small case scenario, so overall its a great find!
