The Cares Harness, Child Aviation Restraint System, is the only harness designed for aviation travel. The unit is designed for:
- Children Age 1 or Older
- Weighing Between 22 and 44 Pounds
It is often a struggle for families with infants and toddlers to decide whether or not they should purchase a separate seat for their child when they fly. Depending on the number of children this can get costly very quickly. When we first started traveling with our son we asked his doctor for advice which was:
Buy your child a seat on the airplane!
When our son was a baby we brought his car seat on the plane. Once he got a little older we were at a loss as to how to secure him safely in his seat. Airplane seat belts are not designed for children and they are often uncomfortable as well as unsafe for your child.
The Cares Harness is certified by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to be used for aviation safety. We found the system to be easy to install and fairly comfortable for our son. When we first started traveling with our son we got quite a few looks from people when we installed the system. Often the flight attendants had never seen the Cares Harness before. Recently we have noticed more and more families traveling with the Cares Harness.
The best part about the unit is how easy it is to install. The only inconvenience is asking the passenger behind your child’s seat to lower their tray. Once you secure the Cares Harness they can use their tray without any interference. Since we travel light it was important to us to not have a system that added bulk to our packs. Weighing only 1 pound the Cares Harness comes in a lightweight compact bag when not in use.
This product made a huge difference for our family!
