How to use your new Child/Toddler Harness

You can watch a short video that describes your new Child Harness and the benefits of this design.

The Child Harness is a small harness that is functional, effective and extremely easy to use. The harness goes over your toddler's head and buckles at their back. No bulky animal backpacks means this Child Harness can be stored in it's carrying sack and toted along to use whenever your toddler wants to walk instead of ride.

The pictures below were taken a long time ago when I first started my business. We no longer carry the yellow webbing, all our Child Harnesses are now made with metal O-rings and detachable leads, and my son is much bigger now! But nonetheless, the pictures still illustrate how to put the Child Harness on your toddler;

You can read more about the Child Harness on our Child Harness page where there are more pictures and a full description of the Child Harness features. You can also read about why I designed a new Child Harness and the problems I had with the store-bought harness I first had for my son.

Is this Child Harness the right choice for you?

The Child Harness is the harness of choice for very small toddlers. You will get years of use from this harness if you are buying it for a baby or small child. If you are shopping for a larger or stronger toddler, you may want to consider the Child-to-Adult Harness for them instead. The Child-to-Adult Harness design has 2 chest straps which makes the harness extremely secure yet very comfortable to wear. The Child-to-Adult Harness is the more appropriate choice for taller or larger toddlers.

There are a number of Accessories that can be ordered with your Child Harness or Child-to-Adult Harness if you wish.

The Chair/Stroller Strap ($11.99) keeps your child secure in their stroller or chair.

The harness lead can be used as a Tie-Down ($5.99) to also keep your child seated in their chair.

The buckle at the back of the harness can be covered ($3.99) to prevent the harness from loosening completely if your child manages to reach around and pinch the buckle open.

You can have your Child Harness made with a Locking Buckle ($3.99) instead of a regular buckle. The locking buckle needs 2 hands to open and significantly increases the security of the harness.

These pictures are old but still show you how to put the harness on your toddler. We don't carry the yellow webbing any more, and all the Child Harnesses are now made with a metal O-ring and detachable lead. But the process to put on and remove the harness is the same:
1. Open the harness by holding the O-ring in one hand and spreading the shoulder straps with the other.
2. Put the harness over your toddler's head and feed each end of the chest strap through the support loops at their back.
3. Do up the buckle.
4. Spread the shoulder straps at the front, if necessary.
5. Adjust the shoulder straps and chest strap so the chest strap circles their torso under their armpits. The harness should be snug but comfortable.
