Door Closing on Seat Belt Thoughts!

Just curious how often other people are hitting their seat belts when they close the door..

It seems to happen a lot. Now that I am used to slamming my door. I have nailed my seat belt good a few times and tell my passengers to watch the seat belt so they won't kill it.. Only part I hit is right at the Latch too..

I already have some good marks on the belt..

Now I am much more careful but now my passengers do it..

Cheers...

Yes, it is annoying. I complained about it when my wife`s jeep would catch the buckle in the door now and then. Jeep replaced the retractor unit and it didnt help. The need a stronger return spring in there.

I find it is second nature to yank the belt up out of the way. I might slam the buckle once a week now...

I don't want your d**n lemons! What the hell are these?! Demand to see life's manager! Make life rue the day it thought it could give Cave Johnson lemons! Do you know who I am? I'm the man who's gonna burn your house down! WITH THE LEMONS! I'm gonna get my engineers to invent a combustible lemon that BURNS YOUR HOUSE DOWN!

Used to happen all the time until I got into the habit of pulling it out of the way every time.

I usually try to make sure the seatbelt is in all the way before i close the door. Otherwise i keep trying to shut it...then...well, thats when the dents get there.

You should just take your doors off. That can solve the entire problem.
