Editor’s Note: What mom hasn’t struggled with a back seat seat belt. Either helping your kids buckle in, or yourself when you give up the front passenger seat to a visitor, it often is hard to find the buckle or to fasten it. Well one mother set out to solve that with her invention MyBuckleMate. (To find out more about the inventor, click here to read the article about her on our sister website, Today’s Innovative Woman. )
A must-have for road trips and everyday travel, MyBuckleMate keeps back seat buckles propped up and easy to reach so buckling up is always a snap! No more buckles flopping around, falling into seat pockets, or getting wedged under booster seats–buckles always stay where you can easily reach them. It is the perfect seat belt solution for kids in booster seats, and those with special needs or motor planning difficulties.
MyBuckleMate is also able to fit in tight spaces (such as between booster seats) and stay secure, so seats can be folded down without removing it. It won’t interfere with your vehicle’s buckling mechanism, as it locks into place around the fabric that anchors back seat buckles to your auto’s back seat. It won’t obstruct the buckle’s release button or the latchplate where the buckle clicks into place.
