Product Description

Now there is an easier, better way to fly safe with kids! Just carry a CARES in your pocket or purse, install it on the airplane seat in one minute, and turn any airplane seat into a safe airplane seat for your child!

CARES weighs 1 lb, fits in a 6 in. stuff sack and is FAA certified for all phases of flight " taxiing, take off, turbulence and landing. CARES fits all size airplane seats and takes one minute to install! CARES takes the hassle out of flying with kids and keeps them as safe as a car seat! **Note: Child must be capable of sitting upright in its own seat, weigh between 22 & 44 lb, and not exceed 40" in height. CARES is not age specific.

    This is a very good product. I am so glad someone thought of it. I have travled often with my son, and because of FAA rules i had to lug his heavy regular carseat through the airport each time. My shoulders and back would be hurting by the end of the trip. This product is so light and easy to use. Its great. I absolutly Love it.

    Bought this for my 2 yr old daughter and it served its purpose. The only down fall is that the strap that straps to the back of the seat does not stay as tight as I would like it to, everytime she would move it would get loose. Also she got antsy through the trip and figured out she could slide forward and slip out of the restraint.

      Comments about CARES 1009888 Cares Child Aviation Restraint System:

      I rented two of this from rent cares.com but decided to buy the product because my husband's new job require him to travel often (we tag along). we have two toddlers and this product is a lifesaver. we didn't have to lug around two car seats, it was very easy to install and fit in my tote. the belt is exactly the same quality as a regular airplane seatbelt so you know its sturdy and price is worth it. We do have one complain: when we bought two of this, one of them did not include instructional dvd and paperwork.

        Been using this product for over a year on at least 10 flights and it has been a lifesaver with a toddler, especially if my husband wasn't with me. Wish it had a five point system instead of four, the between the legs strap would help with slipping if the airline has leather seats.

          Comments about CARES 1009888 Cares Child Aviation Restraint System:

          This seemed like such a great idea but I was traveling with three kids and it took way too long to install and get my kids buckled into them, even though we boarded early. Other passengers had to stand around waiting on me while i tried to wrangle three curious kiddos and buckle them in. My daughter got tangled up in hers on the return flight and I ended up just untangling her and forgetting about it. Really dissapointed and frustrated with this product.

            When it was decided that we wouldn't be lugging my toddler's awesome carseat with us on our flight/cruise, I was nervous about her flying without extra protection. So I purchased CARES and was so happy with the results.
            I watched the video about 10 times and brought along the paper instruction and it was a breeze to install. My toddler was fine with it (she is rather tall for her age so a crotch strap isn't necessary for her but would be a nice option).

              This was the perfect travel aid for a long overseas flight! The only way that it could be better, is if there were a strap that went between the legs, like in a regular car seat. My grandson, who is two years old, often slid down out of the strap.
              Thanks again for ordering the restraint for me!
              Happy New Years!

                Comments about CARES 1009888 Cares Child Aviation Restraint System:

                Started using CARES harness when my son turned 2 (no longer a lap-child). It simulates the feel of a carseat, so my son was happy to sleep through the flight. I've "sold" many of them to harried parents lugging carseats onto the plane and fighting to get them installed in the narrow seats. It's fantastic and is FAA approved for the ENTIRE flight. (Fly with the info card that proves it to rebut overzealous flight attendants.)

                Regarding the "sliding down" effect -- I never had this problem, but the harness is surely designed for older kids, who can hold themselves upright. Young kids may slide.

                Regarding the installation and tray tables/tvs --Never had a problem on any airline I've flown. The TV is usually at the top of the headrest, not where the harness should be installed. Just reach over the seat, lower the tray table attached to your child's seat back, install the harness and close the tray. The person behind won't even know it's there.

                    the first time my son used this was when he was 2 (he'll be 4 soon & still using it). Its super duper easy to install. practice makes perfect! it was a nightmare to put him on the strap probably because he prefers to use just the regular seat belt but with full determination we didnt give up. we distracted him with his toys and was able to strap him! it took us abt 3 flights till he's ok with it. I like this strap because i know he will be safe esp during turbulence. it also helps him to avoid sliding off his seat. all in all 2 thumbs up!

                        I purchased this to use for my 18 month old while traveling... but what a disaster. It was easy to install, the directions were clear, but my son kept trying to squirm out under the waist band and getting stuck. :( I wound up having to put him on my lap after all. I wish this product came with a strap between the legs. Then, I would love it.
