If an infant does manage to undo the chest clip while riding in the seat, the seat is still perfectly safe, provided that the harness straps are properly tightened and the buckle secured. The chest clip is used simply as a harness positioning aid. It is not required by Federal child passenger safety seat standards (FMVSS213, CMVSS 213, and CMVSS 213.1), nor is it the mechanism used to restrain the child in the seat in the event of a crash.
