A common problem many parents have is their child is able to get out of their car seat while driving.  Some  toddlers will get their arms free from the straps and lean forward to reach objects in the car or the door handle.  This is extremely dangerous as if a crash were to occur the toddler is not properly secured in the seat and could come out causing serious injury or death.

Luckily there is a simple way to stop this occurring and that is with a product known as a Houdini Stop. The Houdini Stop Chest Strap is a device which prevents your child from taking their arms out of their harnessing. It consists of two simple clips joined by a length of material. The clips connect onto the existing harness straps and hold them closer together preventing your child from wriggling out.  This product will also work on any harness such as a high chair or swing.

What size Harness does it fit?   It fits over any single layer harness that is up to 38mm wide

Is it safe? Yes. The Houdini Stop chest clip has been crash tested at the Autoliv Test Facility in Melbourne, Australia. To the AS/NZC 1754 Standard. In short the Houdini Stop was found not to interfere with the performance of any part of the car seat. In all tests the Houdini Stop did not move up and have any contact at all with the throat area.

Is it legal? Yes. The Houdini Stop has been officially crashed tested & reviewed by ACRI. The Houdini Stop is legally allowed to be purchased as an aftermarket accessory, and used on a wide range of harnesses.

Can it be used in replacement for an exisiting chest clip? Yes is can. It is universal. It should not however be used with an existing chest clip. Please ensure the old chest clip is fully removed before using a Houdini Stop

Will it work for my Houdini? It should do! The Houdini Stop, has more than a 95% percent success rate. Most young children are not dexterious, or strong enough in their pincher grip to work the release mechanism. The Houdini Stop can not be made 100% inescapable, as an adult or older child needs to be able to work the release in an emergency situation. Most children actually begin to love having a Houdini stop and I have heard many stories about children insisting that their Houdini Stop must be put on.

The houdini stop is available for purchase from the online store stores.ebay.com.au/aussieinfants for the cost of $21.95 with free postage!
