three point belts
August 1, 2018
Quality of belts seems good. Overall pleased but do have a couple of issues. The retraction strength is not enough. The belt does not feed back into the retractor by itself, it needs to be helped otherwise you have a bunch of loose belt hanging around. The 11 inch Bucket seat end does not play well with the console and original mounting hole in my '73 Cuda. I had to mount it so the button ends up upside down because the plastic part can only mount one way on the belt and the pre-formed bend. If I'm doing something wrong I'm open to suggestions.
Response from Wesco: Hi Greg, thank you so much for choosing Wesco Performance. Sorry to hear that you are having some issues with your new seat belts. The most common cause of the belt not feeding back into the retractor well, is that if the retractor isn't installed directly below the shoulder bolt. The belt should go straight up from the retractor to the should sash guide at a 90 degree angle to the floor of the car. Regarding the 11 inch bucket seat end, that's an easy fix. When the bucket seat end is not bolted in, the buckle along with the 11 inch belt and bolt anchor, slide easily out of the plastic sleeve. You can just unbolt the sleeve, pull out the buckle with belt and flip it around 180 degrees and bolt it back in.
