What kind of car seats do you use??!!!lol.. Wow, my kids have never been able to get out.. we have always used the one with the bar that comes over the head( three point, i guess) and the clip that snaps at arm pit level.Which I 'm sure you have. I just watched a show that said that the shoulder straps should be tightened so that only one finger can go under the strap.....and if my dd wanted out on my car seat she would have to reach down and pull the 'loosen strap' thinga ma jig. and she can't b/c I have the shoulder straps tight and if she got the 'clip' at arm pit level un -done she still wouldnt be able to get out b/c the straps are so tight. I'm not saying you in particular, but I always worry that my DD is not going to be comfortable when I tighten the straps , I do make sure her 'shirt' is pulled up near her neck so the straps arent rubbing on her. but I think she is okay, I at least know she isnt going to fly out incase we get into an accident.I know it cost but maybe try going to the store and get her to sit in the car seats and see if she can get out.Or tighten the straps more, I wish I could help more, that must scare you something awful. please take care and let us know..bye for now...
