    I hate that. It happens occasionally with one of my older sons unbuckling his brother's FF radian in our tight 3-across in the Prius.
    I even turn the buckle around backwards before installing to "hide" the button and make it less likely to happen, but if the 6 year old sits on that side he is careless about it.
    Hence they now have "assigned seats" and the 8 year old sits on the side with the radian buckle as he is usually more careful.

    You would think that would help them remember that it's not the right one to push, right?? But I guess not!

    I've heard of using cups to cover them and was actually told by a couple of local techs to do it as an alternative to the toilet paper tube I was using :-P. Since it stays in place better

    I think someone here said it is ok, but I'm not a tech and I've never done it myself.
