We started using normal elastic to keep our son from literally falling off his chair during a meal. Of course, that was after the first visit to the emergency room for stitches above his eye when the chair hit him in the face on the way down.
The normal elastic doesn't last very long and gets rather dirty, so the chair bands are a great alternative. Because they are made from a thick latex and are dark in colour, the can stretch, clean easily and do not show dirt very quickly.
These are relatively light duty and a good starting point - they are best for smaller child-sized chairs. As the kids get older and you need bigger chairs, the heavy duty chair bands are a good choice.
