SEATBELTLOCK is a patented device designed to secure the stretcher restraining belts in an ambulance while a patient is transported. This non-obtrusive method of assuring your patient does not remove their straps during transport means a safe, calmer ride. Peace of mind for the EMT, allows them to assist the patient and control their own safety.
A restraint lock (or seat belt lock) has two ends, the buckle end and the tab. To use SEATBELTLOCK, simply slip the device over the buckle, making sure that the logo on the lock is above the release button on the buckle. Now insert the tab end of the lock. The patient can no longer reach the button to unlock their restraint. When the lock is used on the top buckle, slide the shoulder tabs over the lock tab as you always have, then insert the main tab into the buckle. This assures that the shoulder and chest belts will not be unlocked by the patient.
When the ambulance arrives at the hospital, the EMT can use a pointed instrument or pen to depress the release button.
SEATBELTLOCK was originally designed for law enforcement to use when transporting prisoners. An ambulance company started using the lock when they transported mental patients and reported that their patients were much calmer when their hands were not strapped to the stretcher.
