Seat Belt Extenders - Fixing the constant locking belt

Research shows buying a seat belt extension will stop the seat belt from constantly locking up and chocking my rear passengers.

However, when I look up the part (5083695AA) it appears that it's a basic 3" extension and I don't see how that could have any effect on the "spool" functionality of the seat belt. Am I missing something? This extension only appears to be for "large" people that need a few extra inches.

Has anyone purchased these and did it fix the problem?

I know this isn’t what you are asking but I wouldn’t recommend missing around with the function of any seatbelt mechanism. They are designed like that for a reason; changing things could be very dangerous to you or others.

agreed, however one of my rear belts is stuck on constantly tightening. I searched forums and found this to be a common problem in many vehicles (Ford, Chevy, Jeep, etc.). All recommend the seat belt extension to fix the problem but I can't wrap my head around how that will fix it. This is a MOPAR part number and shows up in the schematic, so it makes me think it's ok to use.

I just did a quick search and found this YouTube on repairing the seatbelt tensioner. You probably already ran across it but if not hear it is. Hope that helps.
