As Seen on Shark Tank, UnbuckleMe is a small tool that makes it 50% EASIER to unbuckle a child’s car seat. It makes it easier for parents and grandparents who struggle to push the red button. It does not attach to the car seat, for safety. Works on all push-button car seat buckles in the USA.

  • Patented lever arm reduces the force needed to unbuckle an infant or toddler 5 point harness buckle by more than 50 percent to help anyone with limited hand strength or long nails
  • Soft, grippy surface keeps it stable and provides a comfortable surface to push, press or squeeze the ends together to apply leverage to unbuckle
  • Works as an opener on all child car seat buckles (including infant rear-facing, convertible and booster seats that use a 5 point harness seat belt) and many strollers, high chairs and other push-button devices
  • Invented by an Occupational Therapist with thumb arthritis (who is also a Grandma of four) and her daughter, who is a nationally certified child passenger safety technician (CPST)

Easy to use

Slide UnbuckleMe® around the buckle and pinch the ends together. Apply slight pressure and pull down to release

Kid Friendly

Children 4 years+ usually have the dexterity to position UnbuckleMe® around the buckle and release their own harness buckle. This is a big help for parents who are tired of climbing to the 3rd row to unbuckle their oldest! (Think: the school drop-off line)

Haven’t used yet, but it is ready to go in my car when I take the grandkids somewhere. I’m glad to have it, it’s got to be better than my poor thumbs

Haven’t used yet, waiting for the opportunity.

Unbuckled saved my nails!!

My grandson’s car seat is so difficult to unbuckle! This has saved my thumbnail and hand strength!

I leave it in the door pocket of our daughter’s car. It’s fantastic!

I really need this!

The red button on my granddaughter's carseat is impossible for me to push hard enough to get her out.

I'm so glad I came across it.

Unbuckleme

This is a life saver! For my nails! I as well as my DIL have long nails and this makes it so easy to unbuckle my granddaughter from her car seat. I also have pain in my hands which makes it difficult to unbuckle, but with this little life saver, I do it with ease! Thank you for coming up with this amazing tool.

Keeps me warm and dry

I got this so that my independent 4 year old could get herself out of her car seat. It's great on a rainy or cold day so that she can get out of her seat and get her rain jacket/coat on before I have to get out of the car.
