buckle me up™ is a wireless, easy to install and low cost seatbelt monitoring and alert safety system to keep your kids safely buckled up, leaving you free to concentrate on the road ahead. Just set, click, forget. And this could save your child’s life.
You do everything you can to protect your kids. So while they’re in the car and you’re out on the open road, their safety is paramount. But research indicates as many as 40% of children have unbuckled while the car is in motion – and that makes them 10 times more likely to be fatally injured in an accident.
A recent Monash University Study observed that children in the back seats of cars are 12 times more distracting than using a mobile while you are driving.
buckle me up™ is designed for children who are either in a booster seat or old enough to sit in the backseat in a standard adult lap-sash belt. According to the Government’s Child Restraint Guidelines, recently legislated this includes:
Booster seat: Children 4 to 7 years old.
Adult lap-sash belt: Children 7 to 12 years old (or 145cm and taller)
So please be aware, buckle me up™ is not for infants and toddlers in rear-facing capsules and forward-facing harness restraint car seats. For more information go to the Government Transport for NSW site.
buckle me up™ is a revolutionary, patented seatbelt monitoring and alert system for the rear seats of your car.
Quite simply, if one of your children unbuckles as you’re driving along, both audio and visual wireless alarms will immediately let you know.
Then you can ensure everyone is safely buckled up before you continue on your journey.

"I'm a mother of four and I know first-hand how common it is for the kids to take their belts off and I'm often the last to know. I think buckle me up is a great idea. It's so easy to use, and at the end of the day there is nothing more important than the safety of your children."
"buckle me up™ is a piece of technology that solves a problem because while we all buckle our kids in at the start of a journey, they can – and often do – unbuckle themselves. It’s really simple to install and it always lets you know whether your children have their seat belts on and are keeping them buckled up for the whole journey"
