Why Jumper Cables Are Important

Most often than not, sites about automobiles can be difficult to sort through. There is so much information out there that you don’t understand or don’t need to know in the first place. Well, today we are talking about something that all people need to know about, and that subject matter is on jumper cables. Leon Jumper invented jumper cables in 1863, way before cars were even thought about or put into production. He was trying to restart batteries for other mechanical devices and his product was successful. Now, these same jumper cables are used today to help people get restarted every day.

First things is first, make sure you own jumper cables. Nothing is worse than having no cables available when you need to jump your vehicle. Mostly, jumper cables are a very cheap investment that starts at around $10 a piece. They are a necessary investment that everyone needs. Do not think for a minute that you will be excluded from having your battery work over your entire life. You would be getting lucky, and you wouldn’t be very smart now, would you be?

If you have kids, it is bound to happen that they will leave a car light on inside the vehicle, or leave the door open. When you are running late the next morning, you will not be happy to find a dead battery and no cables in site, so cover your bases. I’m sure adults wouldn’t do that now would they? Just make sure to shut your door and turn off the car lights. It will save you some time.

If you know how to jumpstart a dead vehicle battery, you will be able to help others in the same situation. This is a great skill to have because you never know when that skill could be used to brighten someone’s day. You can be a blessing in someone else’s life one day and pull over for a few minutes of your time to change the situation completely. You have the power to help others during a vulnerable time in their life. So often, we all see people parked off the side of the road with their hazards on and hood up. Every day people just drive on by, yes, because they are busy, but also because many of them either don’t have jumper cables, don’t know how to jump a car, or both.

People with a dead car battery just have to sit and wait for hours, as professional assistance has to be called. The situation can be a frustrating and miserable experience. This could have all been prevented by knowing the steps yourself and having jumper cables readily available. Even if your car is in fantastic shape, one cold day, and your battery might need a jump.

How To Jumpstart A Car

Before you can help someone else or yourself with a dead car battery, you will need to know how to jumpstart it.
First, hook the cables up properly. Attach one red clamp to the dead battery positive terminal and the other needs to be hooked to the donor car positive terminal.

Next, add the black clamp to the negative terminal of the donor battery and the other clamp to a bolt on the engine block. Do not attach the black clamp to the dead battery terminal. This will lead to hydrogen gas connecting with electricity, which could lead to a spark or a complete explosion of your vehicle. Now, we do not mean to scare you, but this is serious business. Doing this inappropriately could lead to serious damage of you and/or your vehicle.

After you have connected the jumper cables appropriately, start the donor car and wait about five minutes to charge the dead car battery. After that time, start the dead car and your battery should be up and running again.

Note: you might want to take your battery to get checked after this process because it might actually need to be replaced. The worst experience is when you have jumped your car and go to a different location, shut off your car, and when you come back, the battery is dead again. Don’t let this happen to you.

Airbag Module Reset General

Airbag Light is On

Is your airbag light on in your vehicle? If your vehicle/car has been in an accident, chances are you have hard codes stored in your SRS unit. Usually, when a vehicle is involved in a crash, impact sensors send signals to the airbags and seat belts – setting them for your safety! Once the airbags deploy, the seat belts tensioners deploy simultaneously to pull the occupant away from the airbag. Once the seat belts lock up, the ignitors or the internal gas charges go off and will never work again. Here at Safety Restore we repair the locked and blown seat belts, making them function like new! In addition, we replace the gas charges/sensors to ensure the seat belt will work again during the unlikely event of an accident. Once complete, the airbag module will need to be reset to get the airbag light off. If your airbag light is on our airbag module reset service will take care of it! Please confirm that your vehicle is compatible by calling us at 855-552-7233 M-F 9-5 EST or emailing us at Never buy a new airbag module again and save thousands!

Airbags, Seat Belts & The Law

Working with the airbag systems requires a lot more than skill and a pair of mechanic hands. Being one of the most vital safety components in the vehicle, seat belts, airbags and computer controllers require great responsibility and compliance. However installing the components and working/repairing them are two different things.

Seat Belts & Hazardous Materials

All seat belts are equipped with explosives and are engineered to save lives in a way that is both complex and extremely serious. Only authorized and certified technicians are able to take seat belts apart and perform necessary repairs to them. In addition, and most importantly, seat belts contain explosives.

Explosives are to be imported only by a licensed dealer holding a current explosives importer license, any company importing explosives illegally without a license  and/or importing counterfeit seat belt parts from the black market will be persecuted to the highest extent of the law under the Act of Terrorism.

Safety Restore cooperates with U.S. Government and reports any illegal companies  that are doing business with suspicion. Moving forward, the the explosives used in seat belts require strict storage and handling procedures that are to be carried out by licensed professionals only.

Lastly, proper HazMat shipping is mandatory for shipping any seat belts in the United States. All these procedures are extremely important for the safety of the staff working at the repair facility as well as all customers that the repairs are carried out for.

Safety Restore uses 100% OEM parts and imports them directly from the manufacturer-supplier. A dedicated storage facility is used for storing all seat belt explosives (gas charges) and all repairs are carried out by technicians holding a valid explosives license.

Repairing Seat Belts the Right Way

With the seat belt repair service getting more popular, more and more competitors start popping out of everywhere trying to make a buck or two doing the very same thing illegally. Do you see a company offering to repair your seat belt for half the price?

We will be honest with you and can assure you that their parts are not OEM and are purchased from the black market. This means that not only are they repairing seat belts illegally (and soon will be facing government penalties) but every seat belt they repair and put back on the market is counterfeit and is not guaranteed to work. This puts you, your passengers, and your customers’ lives at risk.

If you have stumbled upon such company, please report them immediately for your safety and the safety of others. Do not be deceived by their low price and gimmicks – your life is not worth their counterfeit. You can be rest assured that in the hands of Safety Restore you are safe. If you need an airbag module reset service, seat belt retractor or seat belt pretensioner repair, visit the safety restore online site to order today and be safe again.
