Buckle Stopz

The MERU Buckle Stopz is a safety device that can stop people with behavioural issues putting themselves and other vehicle occupants at risk by preventing them from releasing safety belts.

Only to be used after detailed risk assessment

Easily removed in an emergency with any key or slim pointed object

Seat belt cutter included

This device was developed in response to requests from specialist providers of services for people with learning difficulties and complex behavioural issues. They had experience with students removing seat belts when travelling, which is obviously a serious risk.

MERU responded by creating the Buckle Stopz, a device that fits over a seat belt buckle, which prevents the release button being pushed.

The Buckle Stopz fits over the seat belt buckle to prevent the seat belt being released, but allows the belt to be released using almost any key, or slim pointed object. Please note that Buckle Stopz won’t work on seat belt buckles where the slot for the tongue of the belt buckle is in a central position. This is sometimes the case for buckles on the front car seats. Normally the slot will be more to one side of the buckle than the other (as reflected by the horizontal slot being offset on the Buckle Stopz). Please call us if you are unsure.

The MERU Buckle Stopz is CE marked as a medical device, and is not intended for use by the general public as a restraint device for children, but by professionals working with people with conditions that include challenging behaviour, or families who have members with these conditions, only after a full risk assessment.

We must stress the importance of the risk assessment, to establish whether it is the most appropriate solution, and full training and awareness of how it works to ensure it is used safely.

Although with correct use, the Buckle Stopz is intended to increase safety, the device’s purpose is to change the method used to release seat-belts, so any driver or carer that is travelling in a vehicle where it is use must be aware of it being present and trained in how it works.

Additionally, Buckle Stopz are supplied with a seat belt cutting tool, and a window sticker to inform emergency services that they are in use and how to release them.
