Will it work for my Houdini?
The Houdini Stop, has more than a 95% percent success rate. Most young children are not dexterous enough, or strong enough in their pincher grip to work the release mechanism. The Houdini Stop can not be made 100% inescapable, as an adult needs to be able to easily work the release in an emergency situation. Most children actually begin to love having a Houdini stop. If however your child works out how to undo the Houdini Stop within the first two weeks we will provide a full refund. Please contact the retailer for details.
