New car vibe with new seat belt webbing

After any auto accident, it is important to observe any repairs that you may need to do on both the external parts of the vehicle (such as bumper), as well as the internal components (such as the Supplemental Restraint System). Aside from obvious things like getting an airbag module reset,the seat belt webbing may need to be repaired or replaced. While the actual seat belt may be responsible for locking and tightening the slack, it is only as strong as your webbing material. With enough force from an impact, the webbing can stretch during an accident.

They have the important job of protecting you in the event of an accident. When a car is in a collision, someone jerks on the seat belt, or if the driver brakes quickly, the seat belt locks and tightens, keeping the individual firmly in their seat. However, if the force is strong enough, the seat belt webbing can stretch as a result.

Another thing that may cause your seat belt webbing to not be in factory condition would be due to your furry friend.

How Seat Belt Locking Mechanism Works

Exactly how seat belt locking mechanism works

Ever wonder, “How does a seat belt locking mechanism work?” If you have, I am here to give you the answer. It truly is funny how such a small component in your vehicle can have such a crucial role in maintaining your safety on the road!

In a typical seat belt mechanism, the material webbing is connected to a retractor mechanism. The main component in the retractor is a spool, which attaches to one end of the seat belt webbing. Also inside of the retractor, there is a spring that applies a torque—which is a rotation force—to the spool. This enables the spool to rotate so that it can wind up and release any slack in the webbing.

When the webbing is pulled out, the spool rotates in a counter-clockwise direction, which, in effect, turns the attached spring in the same direction. Ultimately, the rotation of the spool works to untwist the spring. Since the spring likes its original shape, it resists this twisting movement. If the webbing is released, the spring will tighten up, spinning the spool clockwise until no more slack is present in the seat belt.

There is a locking mechanism in the retractor that prevents rotation of the spool when a vehicle is involved in a crash. Two locking systems: systems activated by a car’s movement and systems initiated by the seat belt movement are commonly seen today.

The first system, triggered by the car’s movement, locks the spool when the car faces rapid deceleration—such as when it comes in contact with another vehicle or object. When the car lurches to a stop, the inertia from that causes the pendulum (the central operating element inside this mechanism) to swing forward and the pawl found on the opposite end of the pendulum gets a hold of a toothed ratchet gear on the spool. Because of the grip of the pawl, the gear cannot rotate counter-clockwise, nor can the spool that is connected. When the seat belt webbing is loosened again after the collision, the gear swivels clockwise and the pawl unfastens.

The latter locking system locks the spool when something jerks the material webbing. The activating force in most designs is the speed of the rotating spool. Unlike the first locking mechanism, the central operating element in this mechanism is a centrifugal clutch—a weighted pivoting lever that is fixed to the rotating spool. The lever does not pivot at all when the spool spins slowly because a spring keeps it in its place. However, when something pulls on the seat belt webbing, this makes the spool spin more quickly and the centrifugal force brings the weighted end of the lever outward. The extended lever then pushes a cam piece attached to the retractor housing. This cam piece connects to a pivoting pawl by a sliding pin. As the cam moves to the left, the pin travels along a groove in the pawl, which pulls the pawl into a spinning ratchet gear fixed to the spool. The pawl then can lock into the gear’s teeth, which thwarts counter-clockwise rotation.

If you see that your locking mechanisms aren’t working properly in your vehicle, or if you have any other problems with your seat belts, turn to the company Safety Restore. The skilled engineers at Safety Restore have been specializing in seat belt repair for years and are bound to help you!

Seat Belt is Frayed ?

Seat Belt is Frayed ?

Believe it or not, fraying is one of the most common problems that people face with their seat belts over time. After many years of use—fastening and unfastening a seat belt—the material webbing can get caught on sharp objects, hooked on clothing, or get chewed on by pets. The fraying may start off pretty minimal but if left untouched it could turn to extensive ripping or even a completely torn seat belt! The problem is, many people do leave it be and only tend to the problem when it gets quite bad. The result is a less than attractive vehicle interior as well as a possible impingement on safety.

The reason fraying can be looked at as a big problem rather than a minor one is because it can cause a number of other issues with the seat belt. A frayed seat belt may have difficulty entering and exiting the seat belt mechanism. As a result, that can leave a lot of slack in the seat belt. When there is a lot of slack, ultimately the seat belt cannot serve its purpose. A properly functioning seat belt should be securely fastened up against an occupant’s lap and reach across the chest and shoulders—without too much extra space between the occupant and the seat belt. This way, it will protect the occupant and lock up against them in the event of a sudden stop or collision. If there were to be any slack, an occupant may suffer extensive injuries from the airbags and/or may bang their head up against the steering wheel. Clearly, that is not how seat belts are intended to work.

If you have any fraying on your seat belt, don’t let it get any worse and cause you further problems. Instead, turn to the company Safety Restore. The company will be able to provide you with seat belt replacement and you can choose from either a color match or custom color option for the new webbing! The company works with 100% OEM parts and replicates manufacturer’s original stitching pattern, so your belts will look brand new! Simply log onto safetyrestore.com for the service.

Can a seat belt be cleaned ?

Can a seat belt be cleaned ?

Over time, seat belts can experienced quite a bit of wear and tear. With that may come a lot of handling by sticky, dirty, wet, or greasy fingers. Seat belts can also come in contact with a fair amount of pet slobber. Although you may not have tried before, seat belts certainly can be cleaned. There are several ways you can go about doing so.

One option for cleaning dirty seat belts is by the trusted and true soap and water combination. Try to stick with a mild soap and make sure that your water is warm. This simple mixture is perhaps the most popular seat belt cleaner & spot remover and should definitely do the trick!

Another thing you can use to spruce up your seat belts is body wash. Body wash works just as well as soap. However, you have more variability when it comes to body wash and can choose one that will make your car smell divine.

Some people also recommend washing seat belts with baby shampoo. If you are someone who is worried about using the right products, especially in areas where your kids will be spending a lot of time in, this might be the perfect option for you.

Whatever option you go with, it will make the world of a difference! Just make sure that you properly rinse out the soapy liquid after washing your belts, so that the mixture does not leave a sticky residue or cause your seat belts to fade in the sunlight.

If your seat belts are dirty beyond repair, if they are not just dirty but also frayed and torn, or if you just don’t want to put the effort into cleaning them, you should consider getting the material entirely replaced. The company Safety Restore has a seat belt webbing replacement service in place for just that. The cool thing is that you can choose to replace your original seat belt material with a custom color—or, if you aren’t feeling brave, you can go with the color-match option. You simply need to log onto safetyrestore.com, prepay for the service, and send your seat belts in for re-webbing!

Will a frayed seat belt fail MOT ?

Wondering if a frayed seat belt will fail MOT ?

If you live in the United Kingdom, you know all about the MOT test. Basically, it is a test performed by the Ministry of Transportation that looks at the safety of a vehicle, roadworthiness aspects, and exhaust emissions. Any and all defects or faults found can be cause for failure of the test. That applies even to the seat belts.

The seat belts are important safety components in a vehicle, so the MOT test places exceptional attention on the state they are in in a vehicle. It particularly looks at the anchorage, the retractor, the pretensioner, the load bearing structure, the buckle, and the material webbing during the seat belt check.

When it comes to the material webbing, it has to be in suitable condition. There should be no fraying, rips, tears, worn out patches, or cut portions. If any of this is found on an individual’s seat belt(s), he or she will not pass the MOT test.

Failure to pass the MOT test will leave you with a ‘refusal of an MOT test certificate’ that will be recorded in the MOT database. At this time, it would be illegal for you to operate your vehicle. If you do decide to drive, you can be fined up to £2,500, get banned from driving, and/or receive 3 penalty points.

Of course, you can appeal the results if you think it is wrong, but this may not change them. Your best bet to pass the MOT re-test—and for your personal safety—would be to do everything necessary to repair the faulty aspects of your vehicle.

If the problem lies in your seat belts, you can purchase brand new ones at the dealership. Or, you can turn to the company Safety Restore. Safety Restore performs quality seat belt repair on single stage, dual stage, and even triple stage belts and also has a seat belt webbing replacement service.
