Question: How can you guarantee that the device will not move while I am wearing my seat belt?
Answer: Nothing in life is 100% guaranteed, but the SoftTouch device is the closest thing out there. We package each device with an extra piece of Velcro that you can adhere to the seat belt to help prevent any slipping. Also, the seat belt of each car is designed to lay in a very specific way over the shoulder and chest. Since the seat belt barely moves, the SoftTouch device should not move.
