A Better Way to Secure Carseats
Senior Design Students 'Main Squeeze' to Aid Installation

The three students who designed the 'Main Squeeze.'

Mechanical engineering majors David Apple, Eric Park and Jennifer Parker designed and assembled the Main Squeeze tool as a senior project during the past school year.

Their goal was to develop a way to make it easier for parents to apply the 200 pounds of pressure needed to secure child safety seats. They recently sat down to explain and demonstrate this device.
