Thankfully, I'm one of
those people who save everything. I bought my first LooPo in 1995.
Unfortunately, when we sold our car a few years ago, we forgot
to remove the LooPo! I couldn't remember where I bought my LooPo,
or even the name of it, so I tried other products, but was never
satisfied with their performance. I recently took a trip with
a friend whom I had alerted to your product after I originally
bought mine, and he still had them in use. It got me to thinking
that maybe I should look in my "household purchases"
file to see if I had kept my receipt for my first LooPo purchase.
Vola! There it was. I looked you up on the Internet, and there
you were! I've ordered six sets; enough for our vehicles, for
gifts, and to carry in my purse when I ride with someone else
who doesn't have a LooPo. I love these gadgets! I do a lot of
traveling, and seat belt tension is both annoying and uncomfortable.
Thank you for continuing to manufacture and market this wonderful

I am 4'8 tall and have
yet to find a car that has a seat belt that can be adjusted properly
for me. All of the original equipment seat belts cut across
my neck during normal driving. This is not only irritating but
I feel is is dangerous. Therefore, for many years I have used
LooPo's Seat Belt Adjuster while driving. Until I found this product
I routinely put the shoulder belt behind me, since this was the
only arrangement that kept it from cutting into my neck. When
the seat belt adjuster and the lap belt are properly adjusted,
the seat belt no longer cuts across my neck and neither is excessively
loose. I always felt that this arrangement would be much safer
in the event of an accident. I did try some other products on
the market .
Although they claimed
to keep the seat belt away from my neck, they failed to do so.
This was the only product that did what it claimed to do for my
I was recently involved
in an automobile accident and was able to determine the effectiveness
of this product. Although there was extensive damage to both cars,
I received only minor injuries. The worst bruise I sustained was
from the seat belt tightening across my chest, which is exactly
what it is suppose to do. No injuries were attributed to the LooPo
Seat Belt Adjuster. My head and body did not did not move forward
and I did not hit the steering wheel. It also did not affect the
performance of the lap belt, which worked the way it was intended
to work. I truly believe that the LooPo Seat Belt Adjuster was
responsible for protecting me from serious injury.
I realize that my height
is unusual and presents certain problems not found in the general
population. However, many older children are the same height I
am. There must be some method to protect us, in spite of our height.
I would not hesitate to recommend the seat belt adjusters to any
parent who finds that their child is in the same situation that
It is my understanding
that questions regarding the safety issues of this product have
been raised. I think any product, including the manufacturer's
seat belts, is dependent on its proper use. When used according
to instructions, the LooPo Seat Belt Adjuster is safe and protected
me from serious injury. If the lap portion of the seat belt is
not properly adjusted, the shoulder part is too loose and the
seat belt adjuster cannot fix that. It is important that both
the lap belt and the seat belt adjuster are properly adjusted,
as stated in the instructions. I have not found that the lap belt
rides up on my pelvis. For me, any arguments regarding the safety
of this product have been dispelled.
I thought a real life
example might be helpful when this product is again evaluated.
I am impressed enough
with the performance of this product that I plan to order 3 more
sets when I have the money to do so, my family has other short
adults in it, too.

I'm a polio survivor
,and your product is the only thing I've found so far that is
easy to use, and just stays on the seat belt all the time. There
are a lot of us that can't stand the pressure of a vehicle's shoulder
I've been using your product it seems
for at least 15 years or longer and keep at least a dozen or so
around. Usually lose a few during the year when traveling by leaving
them behind in rental cars, etc.
I have placed orders
through various catalogs but thought this time I would try just
looking you up direct on the internet and bingo--here you are!
I have turned a lot of people onto your product over years. No
other seat belt adjuster holds a candle to yours. You are the
one and only! Without your product, I would have lost my mind
or have given up on ever wearing a seat belt. Those of us with
no neck need your product. And, your product is the only one that
actually keeps the seat belt from recoiling back when moving around
your seat. Plus, it actually keeps it off of your neck and away
from your face.
God Bless my LooPo !!
You have no idea how happy you make me each day I drive.
I don't even remember who gave me my LooPo, but I am thrilled
with it. I used to be frustrated with the seat belt restraining
my movements and wrinkling my clothes. My seat belt always felt
so tight. I just ordered 2 more so I can have one in each car,
and one in my purse to use when I ride with friends.
Give yourself some slack. If seat belts
are comfortable, more motorists will buckle-up. Accident injuries
will decline and fewer drivers will be cited for violating the
ordinance. For belt less drivers, the maximum loss is $4 [per
LooPo®]; the maximum gain could be... well, what’s
a life worth.
