Seat Belts, Harnesses & Safety Restraints


FITTING SEAT BELTS
Down

GENERAL
Seat belts are designed to be fitted to (Pre-designated) Anchorage Points, fabricated by the vehicle manufacturer, to help position the webbing correctly and absorb loads in an accident. They are generally fitted using 7/16" UNF Set screws.

Most cars have anchorage points although they may be hidden behind trim. Where Anchorage Points are not available a level or restraint may be provided by fabricating suitable points. To assist the fabrication we can supply 50 x 42mm plates with 7/16" UNF nuts attached (Part Number 681/4), but we cannot advise to their location or strength.

Securon do not provide or recommend a Fitting Service.
Refer to the vehicle owner's manual/dealer or an automotive engineer/mechanic when fitting or replacing Seat belts.
Most garages offer a Fitting Service or can refer you to someone who does.
Further information can also be obtained from outlets that specialise in a particular make of vehicle.
For U.K. fitting

NOTES REGARDING WEARING AND SEAT BELT LEGISLATION
  • Webbing should pass across bone structure i.e. the lap or centre of the shoulder.
  • The Buckle should lie just on or below the hip (except for Harnesses).
  • There should be no slack in the webbing when the Seat Belt is worn.
  • The buckle release should be obvious and within defined loads.
    We do not recommend or manufacture a product that interferes with these requirements (i.e. to help prevent children releasing buckles)

LONGER SEAT BELTS
Securon manufacture Seat belt extenders for people who otherwise would be unable to wear the Seat belt.

Where the existing Belt is bolted to the vehicle use Part No 227
Where the existing Belt slides along a bar use Part No 228

Extenders are not recommended for general use or use with Child Seats and should be removed before the vehicle is sold.
Seat belts are designed to restrain people and we have no experience or information regarding their performance if used to restrain products such as Child Seats.
