    Pinch test

    I read on another post that someone had posted a picture showing the pinch test. I couldn't find it though. Could someone either repost it or help me find it I'm a little confused as to how to do it. If it's how it sounds that you can't pinch any fabric then it seems like that would really hurt them!!!

    I don't know what pictures you mean, but it's really not that tight. It's not so tight that it's painful or makes the child slouch, just so that all the slack is out of the harness. Another guide is tight enough that you can fit no more than two fingers between the harness and the child's collarbone.
