Buckle Boss® Seat Belt Guard
Buckle Boss seat belt buckle guard was invented by Diana L. Powers, who drove a bus for children with special needs. After seeing that her passengers would sometimes unbuckle their seat belts and move around the bus while it was in transit, Diana felt there must be something that could be done to keep her passengers safe.
Buckle Boss® Car Seat Belt Guard
Diana’s invention helps to prevent anyone from unbuckling their seat belt unless they can push the eject button through the slats in the seat belt cover. It requires a key or something slender to fit through those slats. We’ve continued to evolve the product over the last 20 years while entering into new markets. The industry has since flooded with similar looking low-quality products, but only the Buckle Boss® seat belt guard is durable enough to be trusted by emergency medical services across the country.
Buckle Boss® is made from sturdy ABS plastic that can easily withstand prying, curious fingers.
