AWARD-WINNING INVENTION IMPROVES SEAT BELT PROTECTION FOR KIDS

 AWARD-WINNING INVENTION IMPROVES SEAT BELT PROTECTION FOR KIDS
 MONTREAL, Nov. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- Child-Safer, the recent invention of Westech Innovations, was awarded first prize at the Dallas Juvenile ProductsS?how-Off" Competition in the Parental Aids category. The Juvenile Products Manufacturers Association produces the largest show of its kind in the world and is also responsible for an extensive product safety certification program developed by the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM).
 More than 100 submissions were entered in the "Show-Off" Competition where the selection criteria was based upon design safety, innovation, durability, function and convenience.
 Made of super-high-strength Polypropylene Copolymer, Child-Safer is a side mounted device which repositions the shoulder part of the three- point seat belt safely across a child's or shorter adult's shoulder and upper torso. Prior to this invention parents and short adults were confronted with the problem of a seat belt, designed for taller people, uncomfortably cutting across their neck or face area. This new device solves that problem by repositioning the shoulder and lap portion of the seat belt properly; thereby assuring the wearer's comfort and protection.
 Extensive testing of Child-Safer has been conducted at a Canadian Government Laboratory as well as at a U.S. Certified Government Laboratory, and meets the safety requirement standard No. MVSS-213 government child restraints.
 Child-Safer was launched at the Safe Kids 2000 Conference in Washington this past May and was introduced to the retail market states last week at the JPMA show.
