The #1 Tip For Fixing Twisted Car Seat Straps

It’s inevitable– you are rushing to go somewhere important and when buckle your child in their car seat, you notice one of the straps is twisted.  Ughhhhhhhh.  You have two choices: fight with the straps for seemingly forever and maybe get them untwisted…or buckle your child in with it twisted, which we know is unsafe because it cannot properly spread crash forces out over a wider area of the body.  Until now.

When I learned about this trick a year or two ago, I couldn’t believe how simple it was and how many years I had wasted fighting with those stupid straps!  This may seem intuitive to some people, but for me it definitely wasn’t.  “Fixing” things is not in my wheelhouse.  So when I find a super easy way to solve a problem, I love to tell the world about it!  Watch my video for the demonstration on twisted car seat straps.
