Preventing Unbuckling


We have 3 across in my husband’s 2019 Camry. 2 in backless boosters and 1 FF. Currently, the FF one is behind the passenger so that the big kids don’t unbuckle the seat by accident. But the older 2 fight a lot and he really wants to put the carseat in the middle. If the FF one is in the middle position, is there anything I can do to keep the older one from accidentally unbuckling the seat instead of himself?

I'm a fan of wrapping something harmless but with a tactile cue around the belt in this case- a signal of "this isn't your button, don't push it."

You'll still want to "give the seat a handshake" at the belt path daily, to make sure it's tightly installed still; this is good practice anyway. :)
