Kiddie Car-Belt (Apr, 1953)
RICHARD G. OSTRANDER of Yonkers, N. Y. is not a man who puts things off till tomorrow!
Recently his young son narrowly escaped injury when he was thrown off an automobile seat by a sudden stop. To Ostrander this was a situation when stop meant go. He decided to do something about it and a few days later he presented to harassed parents everywhere his Wiggly Car Belt, a safety device for youngsters.
The belt, which can be installed in a few seconds, is made of sturdy webbing and consists of two sections. One encircles the back of the car seat and the other fits around the child’s waist. The latter slides up and down the back strap by means of a D-ring. This arrangement allows the child to stand, sit or lie down as he desires but prevents him from falling from the seat or being thrown into the dashboard or windshield when the car stops suddenly. The Wiggly Belt can be left permanently attached to the seat. Junior, too, if you wish.
