Celebrity Baby Trends is pleased to introduce UnbuckleMe, the super SMART, lightweight accessory, designed by an occupational therapist and her daughter, that makes it easier to unbuckle a child’s car seat. A Kickstarter campaign is launching today to raise $10,000 for production costs. FIVE WINNERS will have a chance to be among the first to use this smart tool. With the necessary funding, prizes will ship from the first production run in August.
As a new grandmother, Barbara Heilman was frustrated that she could not unbuckle her granddaughter’s car seat, due to arthritis in her thumb. She worked with her daughter, Becca Davison, to design UnbuckleMe, and the team is bringing this essential product to market.
FMVSS requires infant and child car seats to have a minimum release force of 9 lbs. to ensure children cannot prematurely unbuckle themselves. As the average age of first-time moms continues to climb and grandparents are increasingly providing childcare support, more adults are struggling to safely and comfortably operate their child’s car seat buckle. This product uses leverage to reduce the force required to unbuckle a child’s car seat by more than 50%.
UnbuckleMe is made from high-quality, BPA-free materials and will be made in the U.S. It launched with prototypes at the ABC Kids Expo in Las Vegas in October 2016 and received an outstanding response from media, buyers and consumers:
- “I would love this. I have De Quervain syndrome and two trips to the hand specialist have not solved it. I really struggle with the car seat buckle.” – Kristen
- “Need this for Grandma. She watches 4 of the 8 grandkids who are in car seats regularly and carpal tunnel is making it very hard.” – Stacey
- “Great idea. I don’t even have bad hands and I have a hard time with the button.” – Nicki
