Lifebelt Shark Tank Update (Season 1)

Lifebelt is a driving safety device that prevents the car from starting if the seat belt is not buckled. This device was pitched by Robert Allison on Shark Tank Season 1 Episode 2 and asked the Sharks for $500k for 10% equity at a $5 Million Valuation.

Many car accidents happen every day and in most of the accidents, the driver or co-driver is not wearing a seat belt. Many times people may die due to accidents due to safety issues. This is a big issue in today’s time.

Unfortunately, Lifebelt did not get a deal in Shark Tank, however, there was a small conversation with Kevin O’Leary about the deal, but the result was nothing.

What Is Lifebelt?

A Lifebelt is a device that prevents a car from starting if the seat belt is not buckling. There are two devices in it, one is connected to the vehicle fuse box, and the other to the seat belt.

After buckling the seat belt, the second device shows a green light, due to which the device connected to the fuse box gets a green signal.
