If you are a working mother who likes to carry her kid along in the car then you surely know that a child’s car seat buckles requires you to apply 9 lbs of pressure to release. This is to make sure that the babies don’t get to unbuckle themselves in anyway. However there are many of us who are not able to put the required pressure due to arthritic conditions or because of pain and discomfort in the joints.
In this week’s Freshpreneur POP review we are going to talk about a very handy device which would help you release the car seat buckle easily. Barbara Heilman a therapist and her daughter Becca Davison have invented this practical little tool which would help the user unbuckle a child car seat buckle by applying minimal pressure. This would ensure that people with joint conditions can easily operate it without any hassle.
Speaking of her mother, Barbara, as the caregiver of her daughter, Becca relaid the following, "She quickly realized that because of arthritis in her thumb, she was unable to push the button of the car seat. As a result, she avoided taking her granddaughter out of the house, which was getting dull for both of them. She knew there had to be a way to feel more confident and comfortable taking her granddaughter out in the car, so she invented a solution”.
UnbuckleMe is a tiny plastic device which makes use of leverage to lower the amount of force required by over 50%. Its body is made out of light polypropylene and the peg and handle comes with a rubberized grip for better stability and comfort. This device has been created to perfectly fit the standard square shaped child seat buckles made by Indiana Mills Manufacturing, Inc.--the buckle predominately used by the most child car seat manufacturers. Finally it provides grandparents a safe and comfortable way of taking their grandchildren along whenever they hit the road. No matter if you have arthritis, stiff joints, carpal tunnel syndrome, De Quervain's or just long manicured nails- UnbuckleMe would help you unbuckle the car seat easily and conveniently.
Now you can unbuckle your child’s car seat in just 3 easy steps-
The crowdfunding campaign for UnbuckleMe has been very successful so far with nearly 300 backers pledging just over their total goal of $10,000. Lots of supporters who are facing similar kind of problems are generously backing the project which is scheduled to finish on April 8 of this year. The supporters who have pledged $15 or more will receive an UnbuckleMe device. Since the funding goal has already been matched the mother-daughter duo will start manufacturing their own product and selling them online. “In the next 5 years we see ourselves selling our products on Amazon and other local retail outlets,” says Becca concerning UnbuckleMe.
