the harness is a five point harness, including two straps extending from the shoulder portion of the child to the hip portion of the child when seated and wherein both straps are centrally linked to a further strap originating from the crotch region of the child when seated about a linkage; and,

each shoulder strap includes a front looped section, adjustable in length to suit the child size, the transition between the upper portion of each shoulder strap being fixed about a slot or slots in the seat back and wherein each shoulder strap links to the crotch strap via a linkage; and,

wherein there are no loose strap endings in the working area of the seat.

2. The harness as claimed in claim 1 wherein each shoulder strap is attached via a bracket to the seat back portion, the bracket being slidably movable vertically through a keyed aperture in the seat back portion allowing the top height of the shoulder strap or straps to be adjusted.

3. The harness as claimed in claim 2 wherein the bracket includes a loop at one end through which the strap or straps thread and a boss shaped outlier at the opposing end that prevents the bracket passing through the keyed aperture in the seat back portion.

4. The harness as claimed in any one of the above claims wherein each front strap loop terminates at a sliding lock adjuster located at one distil end of the loop.

5. The harness as claimed in claim 4 wherein the sliding lock adjuster may be opened, moved to lengthen or shorten the loop size, and then locked in order to fix the front loop size thereby setting the front strap length.

6. The harness as claimed in any one of the above claims wherein a quick attach buckle is used to terminate the opposing distil end of the front loops to allow easy attachment and detachment of the front straps when a child is fitted or removed from the seat.

7. The harness as claimed in any one of the above claims wherein each shoulder strap front loop terminates at a quick attach buckle located approximate the shoulder region of the front loop and a sliding lock adjuster slidingly located approximate the crotch end of the front loop.

8. The harness as claimed in any one of the above claims wherein single straps extend from the lower point of each front loop and attach to the seat back portion approximate the hip region of the child when seated.

9. The harness as claimed in claim 8 wherein the single straps are attached to the seat either directly via a mechanical and/or chemical fastener or via an attachment bracket or lug.

10. The harness as claimed in any one of the above claims wherein the linkage between the shoulder straps and the crotch strap is located about a forward facing region approximate the crotch strap ending and the two shoulder straps.

12. The harness as claimed in claim 11 wherein the two clips are left and right orientated according to which side of the child they relate to and the clips nest together when linked into the crotch buckle.

13. The harness as claimed in any one of the above claims wherein each shoulder strap includes two separate looped sections being a rear loop and front loop, the transition between the front and rear loops being approximate the shoulder attachment point and wherein the rear loops are hidden behind a seat cushion or pad and not visible from the working area of the seat.

14. The harness as claimed in claim 13 wherein the rear loops include a single loop with a buckle at one distil end.

15. The harness as claimed in claim 14 wherein the buckle is located at the top end of the rear loop adjacent the shoulder strap attachment point.

16. The harness as claimed in claim 14 or claim 15 wherein the buckle includes a ladder lock arrangement.

17. The harness as claimed in any one of claims 13 to 16 wherein the region about the shoulder attachment point is a single rear strap terminating at one end about a quick attach buckle that in turn links to the front loop of a shoulder strap and the rear strap also terminating at the opposing end approximate the rear loop buckle.

18. The harness as claimed in claim 17 wherein the rear strap passes through the loop region of the bracket attachment.

19. A method of adjusting a harness as claimed in any one of claims 1 to 12 by the step of:

(a) adjusting the front loop length to contract or expand the harness size.

20. A method of adjusting a harness as claimed in any one of claims 13 to 18 by the steps of:

(a) adjusting the front loop length to contract or expand the harness size; and/or

(b) adjusting the rear loop length to contract or expand the harness size.

21. The method as claimed in claim 19 or claim 20 wherein the shoulder attachment point height is adjusted by lifting or lowering the height of the shoulder attachment points relative to the upright back portion of the seat.

22. A child car capsule including a harness as claimed in any one of claims 1 to 18.
