Seat belt works as it should
March 25, 2019
I found that ordering was easy and pricing was fare. Glad to see this was a product made in the USA. Orange seat belts really help you to see if your drivers are using the belt as they should. One thing I have found that I don't like about these belts is they tend to get bound up on the retract. This causes them to hand out of the retractor and will ultimately cause the belt to fail as they will rub the material until it starts to fray requiring replacement. I have other belts on lifts that do not do this regardless of how you let the belt retract.
Hi Steve, So sorry to hear about the problem with your retractable seat belt. Please check to see if the installation of the seat belt was done in a way that when the occupant pulls the seat belt across the body, the belt is exiting straight out of the retractor. Not on an angle. If it is coming out on an angle it can cause the retractor to malfunction with time. Please see our installation instructions for a 2 point retractable seat belt here: https://www.wescoperformance.com/2-point-seatbelt-install.html Thanks!
