This is an aid for helping to release a seatbelt. It may be useful for anyone who has difficulty depressing the release button on the buckle, such as someone with arthritis or limited hand dexterity (it was originally designed for someone with gouty arthritis). It is designed long as some vehicles have very little space between the seat and the console/armrest. The overall dimensions of the aid are 170 mm x 30 mm x 10 mm.

The aid is held in the hand using the t-shaped handle. The other end is pushed into the button on the buckle to release the seatbelt. There are two holes in the handle so that a string can be attached providing a way to keep it handy in the vehicle.

To use this product, hold the device in your hand and use the rectangular end of the device to push your seatbelt’s release button.
