Best Car Seat Belt Cover & Pads for Adults & Children

    Do you get neck rub when in a car from the seat belt? Are you after something for you or your child that you can rest your head on. We have reviewed quite a few car seat belt covers to find the best seat belt pad and cushions for you and your car.

    We have reviewed 7 seat belt covers to find the best! We've even tested and review childrens versions, which come in funky, great colours, and comfortable cuddly pet toys. We're not ashamed to say it but we loved the childrends versions as much as the adult ones.

    Why did we review them? Well, we drive a lot, we constantly change from driving to passenger seat to share the driving and we cover quite some distance, usually driving for hours on end to see family, they live in all corners of the UK. So it only makes sense to make our drive and car as comfortable as possible, this includes getting a better car seat belt pad.

    Custom & DIY Seat Belt Cover

    None of these interest you, or you think you can do a better job, why not give it a try yourself and do it yourself. We have found an amazing post taking you through the process of making your own seat belt cover.

    It doesn't have the cushion/pillow which we have reviewed below but the design is great and it looks comfortable, having similar materials to ones we have reviewed below.

    Comparison

    This was very hard to decide on a best seat belt cushion, they all did their job perfectly. It will depend on two things for you when you choose what you want as a car seat belt cover.

    Do you want a nice sheepskin feel, very comfortable and padded, or something you can rest your head on? Like with the child pet buddy seat belt cushion.

    We would definitely rate them all highly and they're all reasonably priced as well, even the kids cuddly seat belt cushions were less than £10 each. We did really like these, though, we don't have any children, we would still recommend them for the family as they had pockets in them too so were quite practical as well as functional.

    They all connected with velcro straps around the seat belt and varied only in the material used. One thing to note is that the sheepskin seat belt cover also advertises itself as a luggage shoulder pad which would help with carrying heavy bags on your shoulder. In truth, you could actually use all of these, bar the childrens seat belt covers to double as shoulder straps for your luggage as they all are portable and can be taken off and put on straps with relative ease.

    Well my question is instantly answered as soon as I saw these, they are definitely fun! There are four different designs Lion, Monkey, Dino and Penguin. Each animal is well made with a soft plush material which is fluffy as well as felt detail trimming and neat stitching, overall a great childrens seat belt.

    Trunki Snoozihedz Seat Belt MonkeyTrunki Snoozihedz Seat Belt DinoTrunki Snoozihedz Seat Belt Penguin

    To attach you Trunki seat belt cover there is a velcro fastener, this wraps around your seat belt or the childs seat belt. When no one is sat in the car seat, it is a fairly loose fitting around the seat belt, but as soon as you strap in, it will stay exactly where you want it. The pressure of the belt pulled against your childs neck and body will keep it in place happily.

    Because of it's comfort, it can be used as a small pillow and resting your head on it whilst you sleep is a nice feeling.

    What is also quite handy about this seat belt cover is there is an intergrated pocket , to keep teddy or a favourite travel toy in. At the top of the cover is an opening for headphones so your child can listen to music or a story via a mp3/portable device in the intergrated pocket while they travel. 

    Trunki Snoozihedz Seat Belt Lion

     

    The Trunki seat belt cover is also machine washable which helps if there are any spillages or accidents while in the car. Due to the size of the Trunki seat belt cover it would suit children that are transitioning in between a child car seat to only using a seat belt, so great for a child that is growing as they can use it in both situations. What is great about it is if your child does not love it you haven't wasted lots of money. However if they do love it, its portable can be used from vehicle to vehicle or even in a travel buggy. 

     

    Pros
    • Makes car travel more fun for children
    • There are multiple animal options
    • You can buy matching travel blankets
    • Comfortable
    • Easy to attach
    • Could also be used on a seat belt to a buggy or pram
    • Prevents seat belt rubbing on neck
    Cons
    • Is not fixed which means it will move down the seat belt when not in use
    Verdict

    The Trunki seat belt covers are definitely a great way to help children transition to using a seat belt with added value for money, comfort and above all else fun!

    You can get these two sheepskin car seat covers in black or white. We have got the two black sheepskin seat belt cushions to protect our neck whilst driving about.

    These two actually double up as luggage shoulder pads as well. Because they use velcro to hold themselve's to the strap, they can be attached and removed in seconds. If you drive somewhere with luggage in your car, you can just remove them from the seat belt and use for your luggage strap and you'll have a more comfortable time carrying your bags around.

    We tested it in our car for a week and they are really solid little things, well made and were very comfortable, which is very important to us, as that is what they were made for.

    We have tested in winter but we are looking forward to using them through summer too. We believe they'll be very comfortable with just a t-shirt on and fully protect your neck from any discomfort which usually happens when it gets warm and the seat belt can rub against your neck.

    As you can see, it has quite a thick comfortable sheepskin surround and on the inside has velcro which connects the cushion to itself when you wrap it.

    It is a luxury looking and feeling seat belt cushion that would be great in many seasons, whilst driving.

    Pros
    • You can order 1, or as a pair for both front seats of your car
    • Comes in black or white sheepskin, whichever you prefer
    • Looks like a luxury item
    • Feels very comfortable
    • Can be used as both seat belt pad and also luggage strap pad for more comfort whilst carrying your bags
    Cons
    • This item is not washable, you can only dry clean it
    • Not the cheapest out of the ones we have tested
    Verdict

    A great luxury seat belt pad which is made of sheepskin. It feels really nice on my neck and chest whilst driving around. We really enjoyed testing and reviewing these, probably the most comfortable we had used in our few weeks of trying to find the best car seat belt pad.

    Made from a soft polyester the seat belt buddies are quite large in size in comparison to other seat belt covers available. They come in 6 different animal designs with a cute cheeky smile design. 

    Below are the different seat belt pets, there is the seat belt dog, seat belt cat, seat belt ladybug, seat belt lion and the seat belt monkey.

    To attach to seat belt you need to undo the two velcro fastenings on the back and then simply wrap them around the seat belt and fasten it. The velcro appears strong. Its large appearance makes it also ideal for a comfortable pillow, ideal for children to take a travel nap while in the car. 

    Seat Belt BuddiesSeat Belt Buddies

    I would not recommend for small children due to its size. However for older children it is ideal, on the front there are two small square pockets for putting headphones/mp3 in and in the side pocket is quite a large space for a console such as nintendo or other favourite toys.  

    Seat Belt Buddies

     

    We know they are for children but we just had to test them out as well and we're glad we did. Our heads rested  naturally, we have neck pillows but we actually preferred these cool little seat belt cushions, they're not just for children! They are very comfortable, cuddly and soft on your face.

    If a child were to use one in their small seats they might have to remove it to be able to play on tablet or handheld device as it might get in the way.

    Pros
    • Made of a soft material
    • Comes in 6 cute character designs 
    • Large in size compared to other seat belt covers available 
    • Provides a comfortable pillow to sleep on
    • Great for children 
    • Plenty of pockets
    Cons
    • Not recommended for small children
    Verdict

    The Seat Pets Seat Belt Cover is a fun design for children, with plenty of pockets and a large pillow to send children passengers of your car off to sleep.

    You get 2 seatbelt covers by Trixies, they are a no-nonsense seatbelt cover in black. They wrap and unwrap around your seatbelt with ease using velcro. There really isn't much to it, unvelcro, wrap around your seatbelt where you want it and re-apply the velcro.

    trixies seatbelt cover velcro

     

    The seatbelt cover is 27.5cm in length and just slightly wider than your cars seat belt. It is fully padded along it's entire length and will also stop your clothes getting caught.

    They are very comfortable and definitely felt great on our neck and chest area.

    Pros
    • Great price
    • Will suit all cars being black
    • Padded nicely along it's length
    • Very well made
    • Simple to fit
    Cons
    • Because it isn't fitted it may slip up and down the seat belt when not in use, nothing to write home about though
    Verdict

    Great price for 2 very comfortable seat belt covers, their cushion part is nice and definitley feels good on the neck. Hard to beat at this price for something that will fit both front seats and suit all car interiors.

    Are you a Star Wars fan, or your child is or you're in to anime and Clone Wars? Who doesn't want Yoda on their car seat belt cover!?

    This is a funky car seat belt cover with an awesome Clone Wars animation on one side. Just like the others, it uses velcro to wrap around the car seat belt and secure in to position.

    It has a lovely feeling to it, made of a neoprene like foam which sits comfortable on your neck and chest as you drive along in your car. This would be great in all seasons and definitely helps towards neck rub from an uncomfortable seat belt.

    Pros
    • Animated Clone Wars seat belt cover, whats not to like!?
    • Comfortable foamy cushioning on your neck
    • Great price
    • Black with picture on should suit all cars
    • Great for any Star Wars fan
    Verdict

    A great car seat belt cushion with a Clone Wars branding on it.

    The Disney princess seat belt cover is made of a soft polyester and is very pink! There is not a lot to it, no pockets or attachments it simply velcro fastens around a selt belt and helps provide a soft support that prevents rubbing to the skin of the seat belt.

    What I would say is if your little princess would like a car seat belt pad, then this disney princess design is a lovely buy. However if you are buying for a little girl that has her heart set on a disney frozen princess seat belt cushion, then she might also love this design and car seat belt cushion.

    Pros
    • Made by Disney
    • Pretty, girly design
    • Perfect for a child you loves pink and Disney princessess
    • Easy to attach
    Cons
    • Disney princess design may not be the one expected, ours when received looked a little bit different to that in the photo
    Verdict

    Comfortable, soft, pink seat belt cover. Perfect for the Disney princess that travels in your car. 

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Will These Car Seat Belt Pads Fit Child & Toddler Seats

    Yes, every car seat belt we have reviewed will fit in smaller child, booster and toddler seats. Some toddler seats have two straps that go straight down, you can still strap them on to these straps but you may need to purchase two seat belt pads. Or if you are looking at getting a pet seat belt cushion, one will suffice.

    Can They Be Used As Lap Pads

    All of the seat belt covers can fit on any part of the seat belt, they just wrap around, which means you can put it anywhere that the seat belt may be annoying or rubbing you.
