Safety belts are vital safety components in your car and should never be ignored, especially if they are not functioning properly. Seat belts may wear out throughout time and the seat belt webbing can become frayed and torn. If you own a dog and travel with one, he or she may get a tendency to chew on seat belts and eventually chew through it! All these pose a serious risk to the functionality of seat belts. Also, if your safety belts are torn or cut – this falls under the same category of risk. These are just examples relating to the webbing (material) of the actual seat belts. The seat belts are also equipped with the retractor and a mechanism. This portion of the seat belt is engineered and designed to protect you! Each retractor is equipped with a gas-charge igniter that goes off during a crash. What happens is once the vehicle is in a crash and the airbags deploy, simultaneously the seat belts deploy as well and pull in the occupant away from the airbag. This is to protect you frol injury. Once the seat belts are deployed, they will no longer work again. A lot of times the seat belts remain in a locked position and will not retract. Other times, they may appear to work OK but make rattling noise or get stuck randomly. Such symptoms indicate a bad seat belt. Most importantly, if your airbag light is on and you have a code related to a seat belt, retractor or a Pretensioner such as “resistance too high” or “resistance too low” – you can know for sure that your seat belts are bad. Throughout the years people did not understand the importance of seat belts and simply did not bother to address the issues. In addition, new seat belts or seat belt replacement costs were extremely expensive for an individual to afford. And for that reason seat belts remain unreplaced. Whether your vehicle has been in a crash, from a salvage yard or simply has seat belts with bad webbing – you can now get your seat belts repaired for a low cost and be safe again! All seat belts can be repaired for all makes & models.
