wheelin" with seatbelts
Ever go to look where you are going and BAM you get caught by the seat belt? I hate that. one way to fix it is to put the shoulder harness behind you, the other is to use a clip on the seat belt to keep it from locking up. what i did was to use the rear seat lap belts. they are perfect, direct bolt ins and the right length. I have had my rear out for some time in the attic and i was up there looking around and i saw them and thought it would work, used them last night worked great.
Personally, I would rather have them lock up as they are designed to and be inconvenienced a few times.
You can do things the right way or the wrong way.
Or you can do it MY way...which is like the wrong way, only faster.
my problem with seat belts is when you stop and you are kinda off kilter a little and you get out for what ever reason. The problem I have is when I get back in. I can never buckle back up until I am absolutely flat it seems. I always buckle, but I'm afraid the worse will happen while trying to get the seatbelt to release enough to buckly up.
Slipping the shoulder strap behind you for a moment while you look is fine, but leaving it there while you're 4-wheeling is DUMB! Most of the Jeep clubs I know of REQUIRE seatbelt use while on a trail run. There is a very good reason for that rule!
My grandfather had a plastic thing that slid over the sholder web belt with a little red slider in it that you could lock the seat belt so that it would lay loosly across you. if you didnt move the red thing the seat belt would not retract clamp would work the same way .
