*Disclaimer: I am not affiliated with Project5 Creations Ltd. in any way. This product review is based on my personal and honest opinion.*
A couple of weeks ago, Denise, from Project5 Creations Ltd., contacted me and asked if I would be interested in reviewing a product that was designed for child safety. After hopping over to the website of the product to check it out, I immediately responded that I would be very pleased to try it out and review it on my blog.
Less than a week later, I received in my mailbox not one, but two beltlocks, one to try out and review and one to giveaway on my blog!
About the beltlock
From their website:
Safety is of paramount concern for every parent, especially when traveling with children. The inadvertent opening of a seatbelt is dangerous for the child and distracting for the driver. As a parent you can protect your children by using Beltlock to secure their car seats in place. It fits easily over the seat belt receiver and can be removed without difficulty by an adult.
Though not related directly to the product, I think that it is important to consider that it was very easy to communicate with a Project5 Creations representative. I received replies to my emails very quickly and the shipping was really quick.
The actual product is well packaged (no overpackaging!) and the beltlock comes with easy to follow instructions. It is small, lightweight, and a bright orange colour.
– The beltlock is easy to install and remove
– The device fits easily over the belt receiver
– It prevents a child to easily unclasp their seatbelt
Even without looking at the illustrated instructions, it is very easy to figure out how the beltlock works. It is indeed very simple to install and is large enough to fit over any belt receiver. Once the device is on, it is very easy to secure the seatbelt and it is indeed impossible to unclasp the belt without using an object (like a key) to release the seatbelt.
I like that the beltlock is compact and lightweight thus enabling a parent to stow it in the glove compartment, a purse or a pocket while not in use. The bright orange colour makes it easy to find too. I enjoy the simplicity of the product and think that it is useful not only for assuring the safety of very young children, but could also be used with special needs children, teens and adults.
I will definitely be hanging on to one of the two beltlocks I received. The product does exactly what it claims: It works, It’s easy to use, it’s practical and it’s a simple solution to a problem that I am certain more than one parent has experienced.
As I mentioned, I received two beltlocks from the wonderful people over at Project5 Creations and I am super thrilled to give one of them to one of you lucky readers! If you’re interested, just let me know in the comments section of this post. Next Tuesday (November 19th), I’ll be randomly selecting a winner from the participants which I will announce in my TTT post.
