James Bond, The STIG and Popular Mechanics Agree, CG-Lock is a "Must-Have Car Gadget"

Lap Belt Cinch, Inc. (LBC), developer of the CG-Lock technology and makers of the CG-Lock and SeatSnug child stability device, continue to gain industry acceptance as the highly touted CG-Lock performance driving device was named by Popular Mechanics Automotive Editors as a "Must Have Car Gadget" and will be featured in the interactive edition of Popular Mechanics Magazine.

And Popular Mechanics is not alone; Ben Collins, the white-suited mystery driver known to millions around the world as "The Stig" in the hit TV series, Top Gear and the stunt driving double for 007 in James Bond's “Quantum of Solace” and other top box office blockbusters, always secures himself with a CG-Lock safety device when he can’t use a racing harness. Collins uses the device saying "Sliding forwards or laterally in the seat when driving isn’t just frustrating, it’s also dangerous. In the event of a sudden avoidance reaction, hard braking or a collision, the lack of movement from use of the CG-Lock can make all the difference in avoiding injury."

Originally developed as an aftermarket product for the performance driving market the CG-Lock is a small palm sized safety device which clips onto existing seatbelts to allow slack to be removed in the lap belt, keeping the user in the safest possible position. Seatbelt slack is acknowledged in the auto industry as a major contributor to loss of control, injuries and deaths in vehicular accidents. The CG-Lock continues to gain recognition for its ability to greatly improve driver control, while more safely securing drivers in their seats. Moreover, the technology is recognized to enhance the driving experience for those with back problems. In the UK 90% of osteopaths asked recommend the CG-Lock for seat belt users to reduce back pain.

"While we are elated with the acceptance our CG-Lock continues to received from top drivers like the Stig, as well as by osteopaths" states Charles Carter, CEO of LBC, developers of the CG-Lock technology, "we are really excited with the application of the CG-Lock technology in our newest product, SeatSnug, a child stability device for children riding in booster seats."

The SeatSnug child safety device recently received a variety of prestigious awards at this year's SEMA Show including, SEMA's 2010 Global Media Award and the 2010 Editor's Choice Award from Popular Mechanics Magazine.

Earlier this year LBC announced the SeatSnug "Snug Up America" campaign, a major nationwide children's safety campaign aimed at promoting greater child passenger safety and awareness.
