Houdini Stop is a harness safety accessory that once added, helps prevent your child from removing their arms from many harnesses including their car seat harness. This arm removal is a very dangerous practise, especially if you are in a car accident or have to brake suddenly.
The Houdini Stop can be used with stroller & high chair harnesses too. It is an extra layer of protection while you are out walking or running with your child in their stroller, and an extra peace of mind while you are feeding your active toddler in their high chair. No more risking falls or climbing out of the high chair and lessen the chance of tumbling out of the stroller if you hit a bump in the sidewalk while out and about.
This simple and effective safety accessory is not only suitable for babies and toddlers of around 12 – 36 months, but it is also may be suitable for older or special needs children. The Houdini Stops universal design is compatible for a variety harnesses systems that straps are up to 38mm wide. Its replaceable red centre strap can be exchanged for a super strong black strap for a child that is older, stronger and perhaps special needs.
EFFECTIVE AND EASY TO USE – Press the side release button in, slip the Houdini Stop anti escape chest clip car seat around the existing harnessing, ensuring it sits in line with the child’s chest, and press firmly to close. Relax knowing your child is fully safe and secure.
But is it safe to use or legal?
Yes it certainly is. The Houdini Stop chest strap has been crash tested at the Autoliv Test Facility in Melbourne to the AS/NZC 1754 Standard. It was found not to interfere with the performance of any part of the car seat. In all tests the Houdini Stop did not move up and have any contact at all with the throat area.
The Houdini Stop has also been officially crash tested and reviewed by ACRI (Australian Child Restraint Resource Initiative). It is legally allowed to be purchased as an accessory and used on a wide range of harnesses.
It can also be used in replacement for an existing chest clip, however should not be used in addition to an existing chest clip. The old chest clip should be fully removed before using a Houdini Stop.
