Review: Strap Stop

review_-strap-stop

Ever since Mini R turned two back in June, he’s become a little monkey in certain areas of his life and one of the things that has bothered me the most has been him taking his arms out of his straps on his car seat. The repercussions of this simple action, that he regularly repeats, are not even worth thinking about. Therefore, when I saw a tweet from @StrapStop, I got in contact, thinking it sounded like the answer to our problems! Anything to stop me shouting “Put your arms back in!!!”  asking my son nicely to put his arms back in the straps repeatedly whilst driving.

The Strap Stop was immediately sent out to me via recorded delivery and I was particularly pleased with the packaging that looks professional and was very informative. I really liked the way the box was colour coded so that I knew it could be recycled – a touch I’d not seen before.

I waited a few days until I had a decent journey to go on before I tried it out. We decided to visit one of my best friends in Sheffield, a 50 minute journey from our house, a journey that would usually fill me with a little dread on my own with our two year old.

The Strap Stop was easy to fit, clipping securely onto the two straps of Mini R’s car seat, and in plain black looked like it was already part of the seat. It was honestly one of the most relaxed car journey’s I’ve ever had! Mini R was unable to take his arms out of the straps, thanks to the strap stop, so was happy to look at books and play with his Paw Patrol toy. I genuinely don’t think there is anything better than having that worry of what could happen took away from you.

A week on and the Strap Stop is a firm fixture on Mini R’s car seat…and now it’s got food mushed into it so it really is part of the furniture! I can’t recommend this product enough!

    Well, that is brilliant!!! I wish I’d had that when Emily was little. She used to do the same and once she climbed out of her seat and sat in the footwell!!! Cue me and her older sister screaming hysterically for her to get back in! We used to use an old sock tied in a knot! This is a much neater solution! #KCACOLS

    This looks brilliant. I could have done with one of these years ago for our eldest. Now we have cars seats that have that thing that goes across their front (no idea what it is called) rather than straps. Also works a charm but is infinitely more expensive!

    Excellent review. 😀 Glad you found it helpful – it’s so so important that they do never take their arms out of the harness it’s a death trap when they do – so I’m really happy to see it’s working for him! 🙂

  8. Oh wow, this is interesting! Here in America, we have chest clips that stop little ones from slipping their arms out of the straps, but I think this is cool as well! It’s always so fascinating how carseats vary by area. Thanks for sharing! ❤ #KCACOLS
