RideSafer Delight Wearable Safety Restraint
A really clever piece of engineering, the RideSafer is the safest non-car seat available. Not only does it accurately position the seat belt over the strongest parts of a child's fragile body, but it features energy dispersion technology to absorb a significant portion of the crash forces away from the child's body.
Weighing under 0.6kg, it's ideal for taxis, Grab cars and especially school buses - as the seat belt attachment points are all on the front of the child's body which make it a lot easier and more efficient for Bus Attendants to install correctly.
It works quickly and easily with regular 3-point seat belts, but it's possible to install with a lap-only seat belt as long as the vehicle has a top tether anchor in that seating position. We recommend you use the included (optional) crotch belt for added safety and the top tether strap (sold separately), optional if you're using a 3-point seat belt) is ideal for wriggly kids.
RideSafer Update 2022:
The RideSafer has been upgraded for a comfier fit. The velcro area on the front of the vest has been expanded, so you can now tighten or loosen the vest as needed to fit the taller or slimmer children. The crotch belt is also adjustable in 3 different lengths for an optimal fit.
To eliminate pilling and stitching issues, the RideSafer is fitted with a new type of velcro with unbrushed loops and plastic hooks. The inner lining fabric is also replaced with the same material used for the outside of the vest for similar reasons.
Many parents tend to leave their vest attached to the tether anchor in the car so the child can easily slip into it when needed. To prevent heat-related injuries, the tether hooks now have neoprene covers. To be very clear, there were no complaints about heat burns or discomfort. The manufacturer is simply being proactive.
Please note that the neck pillow and top tether strap will no longer be included. The tether is only included for XS vests. The RideSafer Neck Pillow and RideSafer Tether Strap are available separately.
The production costs have increased, and there was feedback from customers that the tethers for the small and large vests were not being used very much and, therefore, wasteful. Instead of increasing the retail price, the manufacturer decided to remove the tether from the small and large vests and sell it separately. For the XS vest, the tether is included because the benefit of the tether is greater for younger children.

Will it fit your child?
The RideSafer can be used for children aged 3 years and above, with a minimum weight of 10kg.
RideSafer is available in three sizes:
- Extra Small generally fits kids under 13kg and is perfect for slim-framed and petite young children.
- Small generally fits kids from 13-25kg and will usually fit average-to-large 3 year olds right away (without needing XS). It tends to fit larger kids until 6 years old and petite kids until 8-10 years old.
- Large generally fits kids from 22-36kg which is typically around 6-12 years old for a larger kid.
It's completely normal for there to be a gap between the top of the child's shoulders and the vest straps. The shoulder belt guide on the vest is adjustable, so the shoulder belt can be positioned optimally while the vest itself looks too big.
RideSafer is outgrown by seated torso height, not by age, weight or total height. Download the RideSafer Vest Gen5 Sizing Chart. We do permit crossover in age and weight of the child as long as the vest fits correctly.
To measure your child's seated torso height, have them sit (without slouching) on the floor against a wall, then measure from the top of their thighs to the top of their shoulder.
We recommend your child uses a car seat for as long as possible. If you think your child has outgrown their car seat and they are younger than 4 years old, please read this guide on how to check if your child has really outgrown their car seat.
Will it fit your car?
The RideSafer can only be used in vehicles with forward facing seating positions which have a 3-point seat belt. If you have a lap-only seat belt, then you can use the RideSafer in conjunction with the tether strap (not included), however in Asia it's very uncommon to have lap-only belt seating positions that are equipped with top tether anchors. If you have a lap-only seat belt without a tether anchor, you're limited to using rear facing car seats such as the Cosco Scenera NEXT and Diono Radian.
The widest part of the RideSafer is your child's bottom. Parents often choose to use the RideSafer directly beside other larger car seats in order to fit three passengers in one row.

We have found that local in-country postal services (Registered Mail) can be less reliable than DHL Express and delays should be expected.
