For the high chair and pushchAir a strap called Houdini strap should help but I think it's dangerous for a car seat.
Just curious what do they say is dangerous about the chest clip?

I think if that its because if theres a crash that the emergency services can't get to the baby as quick as if the only had one buckle/harness to undo

Theres no way Theo could fling out of his seat, unless he has taken his arms out of the straps obviously...but if he does that, I pull over as soon as its safe to do so and put him back in.

I've been giving him a teddy/car/toy to play with in the car recently to distract him from taking his arms out.

I think alot of ppl use the chest clips wrong and they become dangerous. And in europe there made to be able to get baby out faster if you've crash incase your in water or of a fire. Google gave me a list but I can't remember sorry

It seems like the majority of those reasons are for when you are improperly using the chest clip......


It seems like "you guys are to stupid to figure out how to properly use this thing so we're going to make it illegal." imho.... I see a lot of idiots here that have their child's chest belt at their belly (i have never seen one put too high on them, its usually they are lower than they are supposed to be. But if you properly use a chest clip there is no more of a risk for danger than NOT having one.
