Conditions such as a spinal injury, body cast, long leg cast or a hip spica require a child to lie down when riding in a vehicle. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends the EZ-ON Modified Vests in a policy statement on “Transporting Children with Special Health Care Needs” (Vol.104 No.4, 11/99 pp.988-992).
How It Works
For full instructions on using the EZ-ON 101M2 Modified Lay Down Vest.
To secure, simply use your vehicle’s rear seat belts. Lap and shoulder belts may use a locking clip to lock the lap-portion of the belt. Place pillows for comfort and protection in case of a crash. Complete, detailed instructions are included with each EZ-ON® Modified Vest.
Fasten the buckles on the vest and be sure the vest fits the child snugly. Lay the child on the seat and thread two rear vehicle seat belts (children under 30” use one belt) through the sides of the vest and the leg belt.
Shoulder adjusters allow the vest to grow with the child. The extremity belt secures casted or uncasted legs.
Now a child can nap comfortably in the car, and parents can have peace of mind knowing that their child is safely secured to the vehicle’s seat belts.
- Passenger must fit lengthwise on the vehicle rear seat

My child is smaller or larger than the sizes provided. Can custom vests be made?
Absolutely. We can have a custom vest made for children or adults that are over or under our standard sizes. We can do modifications for conjoined twins, infants to travel in the supine positions, those with g-tubes and many, many more. You may also have the crotch straps, wrist restraints and upper arm restraints sewn onto the vest
