Introducing the RideSafer Delight Travel Vest
The RideSafer Delight is a wearable car seat that is adjustable to your child and can be tethered for additional safety and proper positioning.
If you have looked at previous models of the RideSafer, you know there used to be two versions. You had to choose if you wanted to be able to tether the vest (RideSafer 2) or if you wanted to be able to adjust the height of the vest to your child (RideSafer 3).
Now you can do both!
Now the only choice you have to make for your RideSafer Travel Vest is which size and color you want and whether or not you plan to use a tether with it. (We recommend using the tether in addition to the lap-shoulder belt for additional upper body restraint and support; especially for younger children — 3 to 5ish — or children with special needs to help keep them in proper pre-crash position.)
The main components of the vest are the guides on the lap and shoulders to keep the seat belt in proper position. All of the webbing is a harness with padding designed to absorb and dissipate the crash energy of the shoulder belt as it crosses the child’s chest.
The RideSafer Delight comes with an optional, removable neck pillow and crotch strap. You can choose if you want to add a tether strap to your vest or not.
To use the vest, put it on the child like any vest. Put the seat belt over the child, buckle and insert the seat belt into the guides on the vest.
The RideSafer Delight is adjustable in size across the chest with the Velcro and the web strap adjustments. On the back there are two adjustable straps that adjust for the comfort of the shoulder on the child using Velcro. This doesn’t really effect the way the vest performs in a crash, it is primarily for comfort.
RideSafer Delight can be used with the Delighter Booster.
