    Question Family car or van Safety Vest for 225 lb adult?


    I am working with a child with autism who weighs 225 lbs. The problem is, he will undo his seat belt and crawl around in the van creating a safety concern. I have looked at several safety vests. However, I haven't found one that will accommodate his size/weight.

    Any ideas?

    There are no specialty restraints on the market for this size child.

    However, if you call Ez-on ( they may have ideas about whether they can make a custom restraint.
