A new seat mount designed to secure students who tend to unbuckle themselves in order to walk around the bus has been unveiled by BESI, Inc. for special-needs transportation. The company’s engineering team developed a way to make the standard universal vest tamper-resistant by using a new cam wrap design.
The upper section of the securement is designed to thread through the existing D rings and connect behind the seat, out of the reach of the student but easily accessible for the transporter. The new upper section also provides improved adjustability to enhance student safety and comfort. The lower portion of the Safe Journey features a tamper-resistant hook that offers the option of making the clip hooks more difficult to unfasten for the passenger.
The ability to use a tamper-resistant seat mount with a vest makes loading and unloading students quick and simple while providing extra protection for the student who might unlatch the belt and walk around the bus while moving.
