its nothing to do with the holes, the seat belt mechanism wont release the seat belt, so i cant pull the part that bolts to the floor down low enough, ive had this problem witht he pasenger side but never any of the others, they ve been taped to the roll bars for only like 5 days, dont get why they r doing this

Oh, I see....this happened to my passenger belt once...I beat it with a pipe and it popped. LOL, wife won't ride with me anymore. I have since replaced the belt as it would continue to stick from time to time and I don't feel like having my passenger die if I drive into a lake or something.

Yup, just pull it down really really slow. Too fast and I will lock it up. Like when you get into an accident, your body pulls on the seatbelt really fast so it locks up. Nice and slow. If you still can't do it, there's a little tab you can play with using a screwdriver to release the locking mechanism. But just have patience and do it slow.
