Locking seat belt latch plate
I have a 1999 Jeep Wrangler. I noticed that all of the seat belt buckle latch plates lock the lap belt except for the driver's belt, so that once buckled, the lap belts cannot be extended (the driver's belt slides freely through the latch plate). Is this normal for the driver's belt to not have a locking latch plate? Is there a safety reason? Or should the driver's belt function the same as the rest?
Thanks for any help,
