Buckle Me Baby Coats might be useful to show the development of a common product in order to meet a specific need. The coats have side fastening zips that enable seat belts on baby seats to be buckled tightly around the body without the coat having to be removed. Bulky coats stop the car seat harness from holding the body tightly leaving enough room for the force of a crash to push the child upwards out of the coat and through the top of the harness (particularly very young children who have more flexible shoulders than an older child). The side zip on the Buckle Me Coat allows for the top of the coat to be pulled right out of the way so the harness can be fastened and it can then either be left open and rolled to one side or the coat can be refastened to keep the child warm.
