ORLANDO, Fla. (PRWEB) August 18, 2020
Clickitstick, the patented installation stick that helps kids, adults, and arthritis plagued individuals to safely install a child's car seat in under 30-seconds, this week officially became available for parents, grandparents, and caregivers everywhere.
Knowing full well the frustration and downright impossible task of installing a car seat, especially if one’s hands are stiff or arthritic, one 70-year-old grandfather was determined to make the process easier.
“Every grandparent wants to do everything in their power to keep their grandchildren safe and secure, especially on the road,” said Dana Higgins, a grandfather of 7 and the inventor of the Clickitstick. “That’s why we wanted to make a product that uses the seat belt and not the faulty LATCH system that can only support up to 65 pounds. Seat belts were designed to secure 4,000 to 6,000 pounds.”
Per the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 59% forward facing child car seats are being improperly installed today. The Clickitstick will ensure 100% of car seats are safely situated moving forward. To use the Clickitstick, simply pull down the seatbelt and attach the clip to the top of the belt. Slide the Clickitstick through the car seat tunnel and click the belt to the earth magnet. Pull it through the car seat, hook the seatbelt in, and unclip the Clickitstick. Lastly, remove the clip from the seatbelt to tighten it as needed.
“We are overwhelmed by the positive reception to our new child safety product and are excited to see what the rest of 2020 has in store for our invention,” said Higgins.
The Clickitstick received the 2020 Product of the Year Award in Travel Safety as voted by parents and educators at Creative Child.
Additionally, Baby Maternity Magazine announced the Clickitstick as the 2020 Top Choice of the Year Award Car Safety Category as voted by moms and moms-to-be.
