Can't complain when it does what it is meant to..,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Clippasafe Navy Wrist Link (Baby Product)
Bought this after our son was walking at 11 months, and by 17 months refused to go in the pram any longer. We had to keep him firmly in our grasp while out. After a couple of attempts to juggle shopping and other kids, we realised we needed some extra safety guard, just to save taking any risks or running into any hairy moments with the little one possibly wanting to do a runner.
Did a bit of online research and this seemed the best brand for the best price with decent reveiws. Result? Am very glad I purchased this. It is a no frills un-flashy product, (how can a wrist strap be anything else?) but it does what it says on the packet. There is an adjustable strap at each end of the wrist link, for your hand and toddler's, plus a non adjustable loop at one end where you could in theory use it to slide over a buggy handle if walking the toddler alongside a pram.
I don's see how I could rate this any less than 5 stars, it even has an elasticated portion to the link to stop any jarring if little one suddenly pulls. Our now 18 month old thinks this is just a silly game and is happy to go along with wearing it, although he is very independent and has been walking in a co-ordinated and (fairly) sensible fashon while out, for weeks before we finally decided to get this. If your child has only just started to walk and you were not using a pram I WOULD recommend this as it does give extra security and can even prevent a few scraped knees if you are careful. For older toddlers I don't see why they still couldn't have this as a safety thing, although if they are old enough to undo the strap at their end then maybe they have outgrown the product, as ours isn't exactly easy to accidently undo, and is even stiff with it.I have never needed a wrist link with toddlers before, but in the case when security is in question and the child is particularly young, I would be happy to pass on this brand.
The only minor down side to the wrist link is that you can get a bit tangled when dealing with multiple children and/or shopping, but that has nothing to do with this brand or lack of design, only that it can be a little hard work and take a bit more thought being permenantly attached to someone!
Value for money indeed.
