"Just wanted to say thank you for stocking a great product. As light aircraft enthusiasts we were looking for a safe product for our 18 month old so he could fly with us. CARES is the only system recommended by CASA and we were pleased to give it a go over the long weekend. It was easy to fit and worked really well. Its also great that the same product can be used for commercial airlines.
Many thanks"

  • CARES weighs only 500gms. No more lugging around car seats when flying.
  • It includes an instructional safety card and drawstring carry bag.
  • Suitable for kids weighing between 10-20 kilos and up to 102cm tall.
  • CARES is manufactured by AMSAFE, the world’s leading manufacturer of aeroplane seat belts. Their testing shows it to be as safe as a car seat for your child.

Tips for CARES Use
  • We recommend that travellers experiment with the belts and buckles before they fly to practice how to adjust them.
  • Where possible, ask the airline or your travel agent to note on your flight booking that you intend to use the CARES harness.
  • It is worth reviewing your airline's Child Travel or Child Restraint Device policies. You may find that you will quickly be more familiar with this detail than some of the Airline staff you encounter! Niche products and policies are not always top of mind for busy airline staff.
