The Anti Car Seat

The New Strappy Child Restraint For Airplanes

— January 20, 2007 — Lifestyle
Air travel just got easier? You don't say! A new FAA approved child restraint device is making lives of parents easier and the person in front of you happier.

A new gadget called CARES, the Child Aviation Restraint System, is as effective as a car seat but isn't a boarding burden. No more hauling car seats through security, no more confusion as to how they fit in an airplane seat. This cool tool is for kids 22-44 pounds and is the only device which has received federal approval strictly for airline use. CARES is a strap system that fits in your pocket and takes just a minute to install. The straps latch around the back of the airplane seat to create a shoulder harness. The lower half attaches to the seat belt. They're available at for $75.

So what's in it for the guy sitting in front of the child? With car seats, kids are squished right up to the seat back in front of them, and they can easily kick and push it enough to make some poor business traveler's blood boil. With CARES, their little feet don't even come close.

The CARES harness is not approved for use in automobiles so always make sure your little ones are strapped into approved seats in the car.
