Q: Will UnbuckleMe work on all car seats?
A: Yes, UnbuckleMe has been tested across a range of car seats and push-button buckle shapes, including Graco, Chicco, Britax, Clek, UPPAbaby, Nuna, Recaro, Diono, Maxi-Cosi, Cosco, Evenflo, and many others. It was not designed to work on buttons that do not require a single-button push from the front (e.g., slide action buckles)
Q: Can I attach UnbuckleMe to my child's car seat?
A: No, this is not recommended. Car seat manufacturers and Child Passenger Safety Technicians (CPSTs) prohibit any after-market items to be attached to the car seat, and doing so may cause safety risks or void your car seat warranty. UnbuckleMe was designed to be used under adult supervision, and should remain out of reach of children when not in use.
Q: Where should I keep UnbuckleMe?
A: It is important that UnbuckleMe is readily accessible to use when you need it, but also remains out of reach of children when not in use. We recommend storing in the side-door or seat-back pocket of your car, although many customers prefer to attach to a keychain, or drop in a purse or diaper bag.
Q: Does UnbuckleMe work on strollers & high chairs?
A: Possibly. UnbuckleMe has been tested on a range of push-button high chairs and strollers and works well. However, these buttons are far less standardized and vary by manufacturer, so we have not been able to test them all.
Q: Does UnbuckleMe work on adult vehicle seat belts?
No, UnbuckleMe was not designed for adult car seat belt buckles, which are oriented vertically and are depressed using extended fingers, rather than the thumb. We do not suggest that UnbuckleMe will be effective in assisting people who struggle with adult vehicle car seat belt buckles.
Q: What is UnbuckleMe made from?
A: The body of UnbuckleMe is made from a lightweight plastic material. The top handle is covered with a softer, “grippy” material to provide greater comfort and stability. All materials are BPA free and tested to withstand very high/low temperatures.
Q: I've seen similar products on Amazon. Is UnbuckleMe the original?
A: Yes. UnbuckleMe is the original, and we told our story on Shark Tank in May 2020. UnbuckleMe was the first product to file patents in 2016 and received utility and design patents issued in 2019. We are continually working to defend our intellectual property. There are other products on the market that appear similar but none use leverage to reduce the force to unbuckle, while also not attaching to the car seat, for safety. UnbuckleMe is also the only product with a non-slip grip for comfort and stability.
Q: Where is UnbuckleMe made?
A: UnbuckleMe was invented and designed by a mother & daughter in Houston, Texas. It is manufactured responsibly in China, with raw materials sourced from both the USA and South Korea.
Q: Is UnbuckleMe patented?
Yes! UnbuckleMe is patented in the US with multiple issued utility and design patents. Read more about our intellectual property here. Additional patents are pending.
Q: Where can I buy UnbuckleMe?
A: Right here! Free US shipping and free returns. UnbuckleMe can also be found at hundreds of baby and gift shops across the US, Canada and a growing number of international locations. You can also find it at Amazon, Walmart, or Target.
Q: Are the markers washable?
A: Crayola Washable Dry-Erase Markers wash from skin and most washable children's clothing. Wash promptly in hot water cycle. Do not use prewash or chlorine bleach. Repeat laundering may be required. Keep away from walls, upholstery, carpeting, vehicle seats and other materials that cannot be laundered.
Q: Where can I buy replacement markers?
Q: How do I thoroughly clean the white board?
The included cloth should erase well, but if the white board pages become stained or difficult to erase over time, you can apply rubbing alcohol, hand sanitizer, nail polish remover containing acetone, vinegar, or Windex to clean. Dampen a cloth and rub in the cleaning product of your choice. Rinse the cloth with cold water to remove any remaining cleaning solution. Keep any of these cleaning products away from children.
Q: Are the materials safe?
A: The Totebook has passed all ASTM F963-17 safety standards. Crayola markers are low odor and non-toxic.
