Car seats may be a necessity, but their bulky size and heavy weight make traveling with young ones in tow cumbersome. Thanks to the makers of the mifold grab-and-go booster seat, there’s now another solution for this necessary nuisance — hifold by mifold – the grab-and-go highback booster.
Crowdfunding for car seat safety.
A father of four, Jon Sumroy, creator of mifold, was bothered by the fact that kids weren’t being adequately protected when carpooling as a car seat was not always readily available. To fix the problem, he invented mifold — a booster seat that is 10x smaller than the regular car booster seat, but just as safe.
The mifold seat has an ultra-portable design (it’s only 10”x 10” when folded — small enough to fit in a backpack) raised over $2.6 million after launching on Indiegogo in 2015, making it the most successful campaign ever, for a juvenile product. Today, more than half a million mifold seats have been sold in nearly 160 countries. A true crowdfunding success story!
Three years later, Sumroy and the mifold team have created another innovative product to further complete their vision of a child restraint for every child, in every car, on every journey, every time.
As the world’s most foldable highback booster, hifold features an advanced, compact and adjustable design that takes the seatbelt off the stomach and neck. Comfortable, safe and simple to use, hifold, when folded is 3x smaller that a regular highback booster and can be set up in less than 10 seconds. hifold is also:
- Super compact and easy to transport making hifold perfect for taking on vacation (hifold can be carried onto an airplane)
- Ideal for ride sharing, using an Uber, Zipcar and in taxis
- Fully adjustable — it will grow with your child
- Ideal for caregivers to transfer from car to car and easily storable in it’s carry case
How it works.
The hifold features eight ultra-compact, high-impact protection zones surrounded by a tough, polypropylene shell. Each impact zone is made of four layers including a lightweight EPP, a dense layer of EVA energy absorbing foam and a comfortable PU foam with Airflow™ washable, breathable fabric. Instead of lifting the child up like a regular booster, hifold is designed to hold the seatbelt down with easy-to-use, patented, adjustable lap and shoulder belt guides. Most importantly, hifold has been designed and engineered to meet child safety seat regulations worldwide.
