bubble bum uninflated


New member
So I saw something a few days back that the bubble bum passes testing uninflated. Hypothetically couldn't this be a solution for kids who need to be lower because of a lack of headrests (or vehicles with the headrest bumps). Just a thought...

It passes uninflated but the instructions still say you should always inflate before use, so I'd email them to see if they'll approve such use.

I got my replacement air bladder today and e-mail to thank the cs rep, Donna, for her help and excellent customer service. I also asked her if it is allowable to use it deflated in the event of an air bladder issue. I'll let you know what she says.

I must say, when we arrived at our destination and realized it was deflated, it still did an excellent job of positioning the lap belt. I'm very interested to see what she says.
