With ease if you're my son lol![/QUOTE]

Me too. I will tighten them as tight as they will go. My LO will cry in pain at trying to get his arms out but keep doing it until he is free. And then he will have such a smirk of satisfaction.

If anyone has a real cure for this, someone let me know!

Not yet in his car seat, but he has just started this in his buggy. Im sure he will start it in the car seat very soon though. A couple of months ago, a girl in the car parked next to me had a huge struggle for well over 5 minutes, her little boy kicked, hit, arched, went completely stiff and straight, screamed and cried. It filled me with dread for whats possible to come!

Just reading this (http://5pointplus.com/no-wonder-ches...s-are-illegal/) I can see why the chest clip is illegal here..... Maybe our seats are totally different though?

Yes...Kelana is the same...kicks, hits...she is freakishly strong! lol I sometimes worry that people will think I am hitting her or something the way she carries on in there.

Interesting article...but as a mother of three..I have never had ONE of those issues listed, nor have I ever heard of a mother with any of those issues. But, it is interesting because I have always wondered why the difference in car seats...

I definatly have the straps tigh enough as tight as i can pull them and she still does it, she will cry and grunt in a struggles as shes doing it but keeps going until its out! the once one arm is out the other is fairly easy. I even took my seat back to the shop and got them to test it and put her in to see if i had them right. I did, and she can mannage. Its certainly not user error, but a design fault i guess, its definatly NOT impossible!

Matilda gets out as well.
I didn't realise at first and when we noticed and tightened up her straps the little monkey kept saying 'I'm stuck, I'm stuck'.
One time she did it and opened the car door while we were driving along. Needless to say the kiddi locks went on pretty sharp.
