Short Description

A Careva buckle cover is used to prevent an individual from undoing the side buckles on a Careva Harness or the chair strap buckle on a Carfix Harness. Once the buckle cover has been put in place, the buckle is not able to be undone unless a key (or similar object) is fitted into the slot on the side and the red release button is pushed. The Careva buckle covers are sold with a seatbelt cutter for emergencies so that the occupant can be easily accessed. It is a requirement to keep a current doctor's certificate in your vehicle when the Careva buckle cover is in use.

Additional Info


* It may be helpful to refer to the following Australian Standards to assist in deciding the safest way to transport a child with a disability.
The two Australian Standards covering car restraints are:
(1). AS/NZS 1754:2004 Child Restraint System for Use in Motor Vehicles,
which covers:
- all standard car seats and capsules,
- and harnesses with user mass up to 32 kg.
(2). AS/NZS 4370:1996 Restraint of Children with Disabilities in Motor
Vehicles, which covers:
- recommendations for prescribers,
- situations that require modification,
- and custom modifications to cater for special needs.

* While most child car restraints comply with AS/NZS 1754:2004, when outside the scope of this standard it will be necessary to follow the recommendation of AS/NZS 4370:1996. Therefore a medical certificate or medical prescription is needed specifying that the user with disabilities requires alternative seating other than an approved car restraint. A copy of the medical certificate should also be carried in the vehicle when using the restraint. It is recommended that the same procedure for adults with special needs.

Wheelchair Restraints
When transporting a person in a wheelchair in a car or van, both the occupant and the wheelchair require an RMS approved restraint system. The wheelchair and the occupant need to be separately secured to the vehicle itself.
RMS approval is not required for a postural support, such as a harness, that supports the user in the wheelchair but is not part of the vehicle restraint system.
The use of a headrest is not legally required but strongly recommended. Easily detachable, folding headrests which fit a wheelchair with standard push handles are available. Refer to section Wheelchair, Scooter, Cushions, ramps / Postural Supports - Seating System: Restraint+ Head+Back+Seats
