Lockie

Prevents special-needs passengers from unlocking their seatbelt while travelling in assisted transport

Lockie encases the seatbelt of a car to stop people from undoing the seat belt and injuring themselves while travelling in a moving vehicle.

Lockie allows the driver of the vehicle to unlock the seat belt by pushing a button that is wired to a motor which moves a platform, pushing down on the seatbelt button to unlock it.

Lockie was designed to make the lives of parents of young children and people working in the health-and-disability sectors easier, giving them peace of mind that the person they are transporting will be kept safe.
