PEACE OF MIND

GDEX for Kids hardware comes standard with a built-in lockout latch to prevent everything from backpacks to curious fingers from accidentally disengaging the backrest.

Discreetly hidden once engaged, it is one less thing to worry about as your child goes about their day. Utilizing the DEX design means it is easy to set-up and adjust. The audible “click” when installed makes sure you know when its locked in place and ready-to-go.
