Definitely not worth the headache.
I have a 50cm PureFix Original and it does fit the bike well. ( Pure Fix Cycles Original Fixed Gear Single Speed Fixie Bike, Delta Light Grey/Teal Blue, 50cm/Small ) I also have room to reach around my son without a problem.
I was concerned the seat would not work with my Interlock ( InterLock Crosstown Post Bicycle Lock, Silver, 27.2mm ) seat post bike lock, but it actually leaves plenty of room for the lock to operate.
I made a pretty decent modification to the footrest for enhanced safety. I was concerned about my son's foot slipping forward and hitting the wheel/caught in the spokes, etc. Even with reminding him to keep his feet still the roads and bike paths around here can be a little bumpy here and there. I wanted to add something that would keep his foot from slipping forward, but wouldn't make getting on or off any more difficult. Enter cheap plastic pedal clips! I happened to have some stashed in a storage box and pulled them out. Cut down the part where a strap would be and smoothed over the plastic with some Sugru. Then I used some Loctite and Sugru to attach the clips to the footrest at an angle that seemed comfortable for my son. They don't really get in the way of installing/uninstalling the footrest since the velcro strap just slides between easily. Now I can easily check for turn clearance and not worry so much about my son's feet slipping forward and getting caught. It isn't the prettiest mod, but it's amazingly functional!
I think this would be best suited for a hard-tail, but will work on a very wide range of frame types. On bikes with front suspension, there should be plenty of clearance between your child's makimum reach and the front wheel of death. See my photo. If your kid can get his feet in the spokes, either it's time for him to pedal his own bike, or your bike isn't well-suited for this device. As you can see, I could even raise it a few inches higher, but the less seatpost you expose, the less adjustability you'll have. If you have a road bike or commuter with the tire just an inch below the down tube, and the seatpost barely above the top tube, this might not be your best option.
Regarding the claims this device is unsafe: you can't even design a mechanical pencil without someone poking their eye and blaming the instrument. It's a wonder any new innovation ever makes it to the market. If you're tiny, uncoordinated, or just not that bright, this isn't for you. If you are an experienced cyclist, tall enough to see over your child, capable of assessing hazards in risky activities (like biking), and desire some adventure with your child, you'll love it!
I wouldn't change a thing.
