Customer Reviews

This is so great for a 2 year old and above!
Heather Morrison
First, I was disappointed that there was no strap between his legs to keep him from sliding down in his seat.
Nikki Rehman
It's a lot easier to carry this through the airport and onto the plane than a car seat.

We just bought the CARES restraint for our flight from Washington to Texas last month. We have the heaviest car seat ever made, I think, and I just wanted to check it, not struggle with it on the plane. The restraint did keep him in his seat, but I had two complaints.

First, I was disappointed that there was no strap between his legs to keep him from sliding down in his seat. I can see how one mother was concerned about strangulation, though I suspect if left to his own devices, my 2-year-old might have just finally managed to wriggle out of it altogether. In our case, I was frequently boosting him back up in his seat and had to keep a hand on him to keep him from wriggling back down during his fussiest moments. Now that I'm familiar with the problem, I may be able to rig a solution before we use it again.

My second concern was that the strap does go around the back of the child's seat, which means either you have to open the tray of the passenger behind you to install the strap, then close the tray back up, or in some cases (according to the instructions,) install the strap around the tray of the passenger behind you, rendering their tray useless and making it impossible to use the strap during the flight when that passenger would need their tray. Since I have this innate fear of annoying people, that would have really bothered me, but fortunately, since we are a family of five, we took up two rows anyway and I was able to make sure the baby was in front of one of us.

I would probably use it again for a four-hour flight like that one to avoid the hassle of maneuvering that car seat through the narrow aisles of a plane, but for longer flights I will probably stick with the car seat both for his sleeping comfort and my peace of mind.

First off, there are really very very few products in this category, which means that your choice is going to be either to purchase this or have a completely different way of transporting your kid ( a car seat perhaps). Since I purchased and returned this product my bias is probably towards the latter.

The product itself is well described and most reviews have accurately reflected the features, but I want to add a couple of important points.

One comment common across many threads here is the lack of a strap between the legs allowing the kid to slide down the seat. I'm not sure if we did something wrong that inadvertently worked or if the others have simply missed this, but there is a strap on the harness through which we threaded the actual seat belt on the flight and held our kid in place. The flight attendant mentioned that she had seen other parents do the same. We also followed the advice of another reviewer on this thread and placed a kitchen-drawer liner underneath our 2-year old and this proved to be a perfect way of holding him in place. We are planning to carry a piece of liner for every flight henceforth, so thanks whoever you are :-)

We tested the harness a couple of times in the house and as most reviewers note, it is pretty easy (a minute or two) to slide it over a seat and secure a child, but there is a huge difference between doing it on a dining chair at home and doing it on a flight with a luggage, wriggling kids, impatient passengers etc (I'm mentioning these so parents don't get over confident about the ease of use). Some of the problems we faced included

1. While it is easy to slip the harness over the seat, it is much harder to swing it around and align it in such a way that the straps align with the kid accurately.

This is a great product for kids who are too big to travel in a carseat but may be too small to be firmly held by a lap belt alone. Certainly this product is lightweight and portable, a pleasure after lugging carseats onto airplanes. It installs quickly and easily. The only downsides are that when it is fastened firmly, it's hard for the child to lean over and sleep. I loosened it so my son could lean to the side with a couple pillows. Also when it is pulled tight, the main strap pulls away from the seat and may not be comfortable for the child's head. Sometimes you have to play with the installation. Overall, though, it's a great product. While it may seem a little bit like overkill, after one bout of severe turbulence on an airplane, you will appreciate its value to keep your kids safely strapped to their seats.

Sure, a car seat would be ideal if it can be properly installed in the teeny airplane seat, but for any parent out there traveling alone, this harness is a LIFE SAVER!! I've had to travel on more than one occasion with my two young boys, and there is no way that I would have been able to get (1) an infant car seat (2) a toddler car seat (3) all of the carry-ons that you need when traveling with 2 very active little boys and most importantly (4) the kids! onto and off of a plane independently. It has been so nice to just carry the one car seat on and have this harness rolled up in my bag. I've been counting down the days until my youngest would be old enough to use his own, which is now here, and why I'm buying a second one of these for our upcoming trip.

I haven't had any issues with the installation of the belt or my child's comfort. I've used it on pretty much every airline. It is expensive, but I also think it's a high quality product, and the only one of its kind out there as far as I've seen, so they can probably charge whatever they want. I think it is very safe. . . and will do the main thing it would need to in case of turbulence, which would be to ensure your child does not fly out of the seat belt.

Lastly, with the exception of Hawaiian Airlines, where the flight attendants are still actually kind and nice, I have only dealt with VERY difficult, unhelpful flight attendants when lugging my car seats on and off. I am questioned about whether I actually bought a seat for my child. Even while standing there with 50 lbs of car seat/carry ons/kid, they demand to see that sticker to ensure you didn't get the car seat on the black market or something. They never help you actually carry it down the aisle or install it, but they stand there and hover while you do it.
