The CG-Lock improves overall seat belt performance to enhance driver control and to enhance the safety and comfort of the user. The CG-Lock was originally developed as an aftermarket product for the performance driving market and was used by stunt drivers in the racing scenes of several recent motion pictures, including James Bond’s Quantum of Solace and National Treasure II
SeatSnug, LBC’s first consumer oriented aftermarket product, is initially being targeted to enhance the safety, stability and comfort of children riding in booster seats. By maintaining the seat belt in position at the time of an accident, SeatSnug optimizes seat belt performance to reduce the risk of injury to children. Crash tests have also validated SeatSnug for use by older post booster seat children and adults. LBC plans to introduce an adult version of Seatsnug in 2010. Recipient of The National Parenting Center Seal of Approval and featured on ABC and the Fox News TV channels, SeatSnug is now available in a growing number of retail locations around the U.S. as shown on its website at http://www.seatsnug.com.
