THIS Is Why The Correct Placement Of Car Seat Chest Clips Is So Important
June 30, 2016
A mother who's very passionate about proper car seat safety found a brilliant way to spread the word about how important the chest clip placement is on your child's car seat harness.
"Mr. Bones here is demonstrating on the left why his chest clip sucks," Ashley Kulm wrote. "He would have internal bleeding to his vital organs. Mr. Bones on the right has the chest clip properly placed and his organs protected by his rib cage. Please place your child's chest clip properly with the top of the chest clip being at armpit level."
Here's an example why:
This is a three-year-old girl who was just in a car accident. The bruising on her chest is from her chest clip on her 5 point harness.
Notice it was correctly positioned on her chest, at armpit level right between her nipples. Clearly, there was some force to that accident. Had the clip been placed lower, she likely would have had organ damage and internal bleeding. Had it been placed higher, she could have been asphyxiated.
Car seat safety is truly that important. Spread the word.
