The EZ-ON Adjustable Zipper Vest enables the transportation of physically challenged children and adults in the upright position. It is dynamically tested and meets Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards.

Zippers and adjustable chest and waist strips also accommodate growth and heavy clothing. Optional synthetic fleece neck pads have Velcro closure for instant access to slide buckles (neck pad not included with vest, order separately). Bar slides helps deter children from loosening adjusters. Contains latex in bar slides only.

When choosing a mount, the Tether Mount is recommened when purchasing the EZ-ON Adjustable Zipper Vest for Family Vehicles for easy installation and use. If you plan on using the EZ-ON Adjustable Zipper Vest in two seperate vehicles, consider purchasing an additonal tether mount. If you are planning to use this vest in a family vehicle AND a school bus setting, you must also purchase a school bus recommended Seat Mount.
This EZ-ON Adjustable Zipper Vest may also be used in a school bus when used with the Seat Mount. If you are planning to use this vest in a family vehicle AND a school bus setting, you must purchase both a Tether Mount AND a Seat Mount.
Most standard vehicles are installed with a single tether mount per seat which works with the Tether Strap. It helps with sliding the straps of the vest through the vehicle lap belt. To use the floor mounted strap, additional tether mounts will need to be installed into the vehicle.

Vehicle Mount Options:
Tether Mount (RECOMMENDED)
Check your vehicle manual for tether location and weight limits to use the E-Z-ON® Tether Mount. Unless noted, vehicle anchors can secure the E-Z-ON® Tether Mount. Locate your vehicle anchor. Most motor vehicle models made after 1999 have factory installed tether anchors.
E-Z-ON® Tether Mount must be used with a vehicle belt. Lap and shoulder belts can be used with the Tether Mount with a locking clip. Securing the tether to the metal slots on the vest provides the upper body support, without using the shoulder belt.
Attach snap hooks to D-rings or metal adjuster slots on vest. E-Z-ON® Tether Mount may be used on certain captain chairs only with E-Z-ON® Vests.
When your passenger exceeds your tether anchor weight limit, it is necessary to replace the factory installed tether anchor with your E-Z-ON® hardware kit included. This kit is also for vehicles without a factory installed tether anchor.
Note: This mount may require drilling installation and modification to the vehicle. Please consult Customer Service before purchasing to ensure this mount is right for you. Includes 2 off centered anchors.
Floor mounts can be used in family vehicles, school buses, and certain captain chairs. Use only with E-Z-ON® Vest.

Frequently Asked Questions:Why would you use the E-Z-ON Adjustable Vest over the E-Z-ON 86Y Universal Harness for Family Vehicles?
The E-Z-ON Adjustable Vest offers a zip up back and most sizes offer the leg straps making it more difficult for the user to escape their seat, whereas the E-Z-ON 86Y Universal Harness only uses the lap belt. The 86Y Universal Harness was designed for vehicles that do not offer a shoulder belt or that were made before 1999.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. If you would like any of these modifications done please call us for a quote at 877-664-4565.Have the vests been safety tested in Canada?No, E-Z-ON products have only been safety tested in the United States.
