    It’s important to minimize repetitive activities that strain the small joints in the thumb/hand, and try to shift force to larger muscles in the body.

Why are car seats so hard to unbuckle?

Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (FMVSS) require infant and child car seat buckles to require a minimum release force of 40 Newtons, or about 9 lbs to unbuckle the car seat. This force is higher than most activities of daily living. Great for keeping kids safe, but often challenging for adults. UnbuckleMe® is here to help.
