Clippasafe Wrist Link
Advantages: A brill safety idea; Doesn't rub on skin; Can be adjusted to suit everyone
Disadvantages: Can learn how to escape from the strap
We've got the Clippasafe Wrist Link in pink, I brought it one day when I took my little sister to Town shopping one day. I got scared out of my head when she wandered off in one of the shops and I lost sight of her for a second..... and yeah, I'd been holding her hand but had let go of it for 2 secs while I switched my bag onto my other arm and she was gone!
I only brought this brand because it was the first one I saw in the shop and I thought I'd have a heart attack if I lost her again, but it's turned out brill and even now that she's 3 we will sometimes put it on her if we're going somewhere where there are going to be loads of people about. It cost about £5.00 at the time but it looks like it's a bit cheaper now, you can get the pink one from Amazon for £3.99 and I bet the plain navy blue or black ones are even cheaper.
It's just like a dog lead really, sorry I shouldn't say that but it's true! You put the child's wrist through one loop and yours through the one at the other end. The loops adjust so will fit most peoples wrists, the biggest loop is massive and I can't see that anyone would have hands too big to fit through it! It will also adjust to very small, my sister was about 18 months when I first got the Wrist Link and it fitted her fine without any rubbing of her skin or anything like that. I always think it's a bit uncomfortable to wear but that's probably because I don't wear anything on my wrists usually so it just feels WEIRD having a tightish loop round my arm.
The strap is made from a strong material that doesn't stretch so you've got no worries that your child is going to go further than you want her to. I can't see that the strap is ever going to rip or break either because even by touch it's very hard wearing, our pink one looks a bit grubby now but we don't actually use it all that much now my sister is bigger so that doesn't matter.
The only bad thing is that kids pick things up soooooo quick that it wasn't long before my sister sussed out how to escape from the Wrist Link and run away. It was a good job my dad was on the ball that day because we was right by a main road so I deffo wouldn't say to put your trust in a strap like this and you still need to use loads of common sense when you are out and about with toddlers.
Summary: A Wicked Idea But Eventually Kids WILL Learn How To Get Out Of It!
