A soft structured carrier (SSC) or buckle carrier is a modernized version of the mei tai that borrows from hiking pack technology to create a quick, more structured carrier.  They are probably the most widely used carrier at the moment, with new brands becoming available rapidly and well known brands making their way into more mainstream/big box stores.[1]

Compliance Testing and Safety StandardsEdit

American-made, soft-structured carriers are held to safety standards by the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC).

  • The Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act of 2008 (CPSIA, Pub Law 110-314) was enacted on August 14, 2008. Section 104(b) of the CPSIA, part of the Danny Keysar Child Product Safety Notification Act, requires the Commission to examine and assess the effectiveness of voluntary consumer product safety standards for durable infant or toddler products.
  • The term “durable infant or toddler product” is defined in section 104(f)(1) of the CPSIA as “a durable product intended for use, or that may be reasonably expected to be used, by children under the age of 5 years.”[2]
