The Lil' Hugger Buckle Booster™ supports your rear seat belt receptacles by wrapping around the receptacle to create a firmer base. It is the more universal kind of Buckle Booster in our family, but it is shorter and slightly less hefty than its sibling, the Long Neck Pullover Buckle Booster. In this way, it is a great solution for slightly more difficult fits or larger receptacles, especially if those locations don't require as much upright support based on their construction. The Lil' Hugger Buckle Booster keeps rear seat receptacles upright and accessible, allowing you to buckle yourself with one hand or buckle children in the back seats without struggling.

The Lil' Hugger Buckle Booster helps a wide variety of people, including:
- Parents buckling their children into the back seats of the vehicle,
- Elderly and other passengers seeking greater independence when buckling,
- Post-surgery or injured passengers with limited range of motion,
- The disabled or mobility impaired, including those with arthritis.
End Seat Belt Frustration - Are you thwarted by buried seat belt buckles, digging them out from under or between the rear bench? The Buckle Booster keeps seat belts upright and accessible for future rides to make buckling a breeze.
Secure Wobbly Buckles - The Buckle Booster stabilizes your seat belt receptacle, so you can smoothly click the metal tongue in. No more wiggling belt that requires a second hand to hold while buckling.
Raise Your Receptacle - With the Buckle Booster you won't have to reach so far for the buckle. It elevates your seat belt receptacle for easier access.
Ideal Between Booster & Car Seats - Reaching from the side to buckle babies and kids can be frustrating due to the elusive, floppy buckles that get buried under children's seats. Avoid the scraping knuckles of "buckle crunch" when you have three car or booster seats in the back, making your buckling job a pain.
Great For Adults - The Buckle Booster allows you to buckle up with just one hand, whether you are simply in a hurry or are coping with mobility challenges. Let the Buckle Booster keep your receptacle elevated and stable as you recover from rotator cuff surgery or battle arthritis.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
The Lil' Hugger Buckle Booster works with most back seat receptacles by wrapping around the receptacle and bracing against the seat and surroundings to keep the receptacle pointed upwards and steady. It can sometimes be used in the front for bench seats.
- Simply open the short side of the Lil' Hugger that has the split, and wrap it around the receptacle that you would like to stabilize.
- Ensure that it fits as snugly at the base as it reasonably can, allowing access to the (usually red) release button.
- Now fasten the seat belt with ease!
The Lil' Hugger Buckle Booster is made of silicone and TPE, some of the same material used to make pacifiers, baby bottle parts, and food preparation items like spatulas. This denser version of this same material provides stability for your seat belt buckles and easy access for you! Don't get any ideas, though - you or your kids should not eat or chew on the Buckle Booster.
