The customer service representative I corresponded via email was very helpful when I was trying to figure out how to get my extender to fit on my winter jacket. The universal is exactly what I needed and I appreciate not having to buy a maternity coat. Fast shipping, easy installation and no issues. Would highly recommend to any mom having to be pregnant during the fall/winter months!
