Problem with New OEM seat belts

Hey guys I'm hoping someone can give me some insight on my problem.
I recently did some restoration work with the interior of my jeep and I ordered the replacement OE receiving end of the 3 point belts as shown in this link. http://www.jeep4x4center.com/oe-buck...4-bucklel.html
The problem is that the male spade on my presumably OEM belt does not click and lock in the female side. It will slide into place but it won't latch. I guess the holes don't quite line up. I don't mind buying new 3 point belts (male end) if they will work but I hate to pay the dough for them only to have them not fit once they arrive.

Now I could put back the old crappy parts but those ones do not have the nice pre molded plastic that held them up in place. They had the floppy limp plastic housing that just sort of housed the belt but did not hold it up on the angle.

If anyone has felt with finding the correct parts before please give me some advice.

Thanks
David

I ended up replacing the whole thing. But mine were pretty worn.

Yea nevermind, I just went and ahead and ordered the entire assembly. I'll have to sell the new female ends that I have to recoup some of the cost.
