harness rental is not only convenient, but highly economical.
CARES is recommended for kids between 22 and 44 pounds (10 and 20 kilograms) in
a forward-facing seat, the harness’ use is generally limited to children between
one and four years old. Unless you are a
frequent traveler with children, you may not get enough trips in with your
CARES harness to justify an outright purchase of the harness, when a rental
costs just about 75% less than the full purchase price. If you do travel frequently enough, the CARES
harness can be purchased directly from KidsFlySafe or from resellers including
Amazon, Target, Walmart, Buy Buy Baby and others, while gently used CARES
harnesses can also be purchased at a reduced price through us via eBay.
you do rent, once you are done with your trip, you simply return the CARES. This not only avoids having to store it, but
also the headache of having to find the CARES when you are preparing for your
next trip. All you have to do is go to
RentCARES.com and set up your next rental.
Cheaper than owning and no headaches, it is a win-win.
On most airlines, children can travel in their guardian’s or parent’s lap up to age 2. This means that no separate seat is purchased for that child. However, the caretaker has to meet an age requirement and can only take care of one child at a time. Seats would have to be secured for any additional infants. That second infant would then have to be secured in the seat.
airlines do offer the choice of purchasing a seat for your infant as long as
you have the proper child restraint device.
This could be either a car seat or a CARES harness.
you already have your hands full with one in your lap, do you really want the
hassle of dealing with a full car seat for your other child? CARES harnesses fit neatly in a small bag,
are light, and take a lot of the stress out of taking a trip, especially when
dealing with multiple kids.
the CARES over the back of the seat and securing requires lowering the tray
table on the back of the seat. As such,
this is more easily and quickly accomplished if you board early. Take advantage of the opportunity for
priority boarding because you are traveling with young children. It will not only make getting the CARES
installed easier, it will also allow your young one to get acclimated to the
surroundings and the feel of the CARES over the shoulders and around the lap.
is suggested that once the passenger behind your child arrives and takes their
seat, you let them know that you have installed the CARES and assure them that
it will have no impact on their ability to use their tray table. This will likely avoid any issues with these
passengers getting concerned and alerting a steward or stewardess, which would
then require additional discussions and explanations. Should this nevertheless happen, please be
reminded that the CARES is equipped with labels clearly identifying the product
as FAA approved, which should defuse any such situations. Additionally, a short explanation and
demonstration of how the product works and how it really has no impact on the
usability of the tray table of the passengers behind should also go a long way
in bringing such an exchange to a swift end.
use of the CARES harness should be limited to window and center seats, much as
the use of a car seat. However, unlike a
car seat, the CARES harness fits neatly into a small bag until you need to take
it out to install it on one of these window or center seats. No bruises to the shins, no pulled muscles
wrestling the car seat into position. A
quick loop and tighten and the CARES is ready for use.
We had a great experience utilizing Rent Cares for our daughter's harness. It arrived on time, was clean, with all necessary parts, and carrying bag. Returning was easy (just a trip to the post office).
