To ensure the safety of the child in the vehicle it is necessary to use a child restraint systems that can ensure an effective level of protection in the case of an accident. The allowable load threshold in this case should not exceed the standards set by regional and international standards. We have developed a classification of child restraint systems on seven criteria: design, size, species, method of installation, mounting system, operation of the product category, the weight group of children. We have reviewed a design of the frameless restraint systems, that was developed by the Scientific and Technological Park VSTU.
