Accessibility Minute - Assistive Technology Tips and Tricks for Everyone

Oct 28, 2022

Hey there! Welcome to Accessibility Minute, your weekly look at Assistive Technology, those clever tools and devices designed to help people who have difficulties with vision, mobility, hearing, or other special needs!

A few weeks ago I talked about UnbuckleMe, which is a small tool that makes it easier for adults to unbuckle a car seat.  Another similar product is Bucklebee.  However, unlike UnbuckleMe, Bucklebee is an easy car seat buckle release aid for adults and children.

According to the product’s website: “This allows responsible children to unbuckle themselves and saves the parent and/or caregiver time and energy! As the first of its kind, it is designed to work with push-button style car seat buckle harnesses.”

Features of Bucklebee include:

  • Proven product designed to reduce the unbuckling force for a child or caregiver
  • Installs in 4 easy steps
  • Ideal for individuals with arthritis, joint pain, and more
  • Save your nails by using this car seat opener
  • Crash tested to work with car seats to demonstrate this buckle tool will not unintentionally unbuckle a car seat on impact
  • And more
