Evaluation

We highly appraise this product as a revolutionary product with an idea that protects little children from unforeseeable accidents. While use of child safety seats and booster seats has become mandatory, there are several challenges to accommodate them in a car, including space limitation and complicated installation process. In addition, the safety is not maintained in a taxi or other passenger transports, as use of child restraint is not mandatory in such vehicles. Moreover, there is a similar risk when traveling in another's car. This product can be used by attaching on an existing seatbelt, and children with small body sizes are able to adjust seatbelts comfortably on their bodies. This is one of the smartest and most unprecedented seatbelts for children in the world, which maintains the safety of children.
