    There's already a thread about this - it's called a "mifold" & it's actually pretty cool! The prototype needs some tweaking but it has real potential

    From what I've read, it pulls the belt down to the child instead of lifting the child up to the belt. I think it has a lot of promise.

    It's not available yet. It's only a prototype.

    I understand that. If people are preordering, there should probably be a price somewhere.

    They aren't. You can sign up for the mailing list to be notified when preorder is available.

    It did say in the video to preorder your's today that is probably why she thought that.

    It also said in the video that it would be under $30 or $40 I can't remember.

    I hope they can get this to pass because I would love to keep them in my car for emergencies.

    Thanks everyone for replying

    Due to Jon's accent as discussed in the other thread, you MUST watch it with audio!
