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 2 different things. 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. 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. Did 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.

Is your airbag light on in your vehicle? Has your vehicle been in an accident or involved even in a minor crash? Did your airbags deploy? If you answered “yes” to any of those questions, we have an affordable solution for you. Airbag modules are the computers found in cars that control the airbag systems. They are responsible for obtaining the signal from impact sensors and deploying the airbags along with the seat belt tensioners to protect the passengers in the unlikely event of a crash. Once a crash occurs, the airbag module, or the computer, saves all the crash data in its memory. For example, if the airbags deployed along with the seat belts, the airbag light would go off and all of the details could be obtained by an OBD scanner. Many codes could be simply cleared with scanner, but the crash data cannot. Crash data is written in a from widely known as a “hard code” that used to mean that it’s there for good and the only way to solve the issue is replace the airbag module. However, with the modern technology and advanced programming, we are now able to access the memory chips in the module to reprogram the controller clearing all crash data and hard codes. This would re-flash the computer back to its factory state by reprogramming the original data into it making it like new again. Of course all of the SRS components, such as the airbags, seat belts, impact sensors and clock spring may still need to be repaired or replaced, but purchasing a new module would no longer be necessary. This is an extremely money-saving alternative that everyone knowing about it uses. New airbag modules can cost as much as a thousand dollars compared to a reset service of $50.

Those of you working with salvage vehicles that have been in an accident are well aware of the way airbag systems work. But if you are new to all this, we’ll try to shed some light unto why exactly your seat belt is locked after your vehicle has been in an accident. Before moving forward, it is very important for you to understand that all airbags are controlled by the airbag module computer that go hand in hand with the seat belts. Just like airbags, each seat belt is equipped with a gas charge that ignites to lock the seat belt. This charge is controlled by a sensor that is connected to the airbag module computer. During an accident, an airbag may or may not deploy depending on the impact. However the seat belt will always deploy once an impact is initiated. This is to protect the passenger, pulling them back to their sear securely. That way, if the airbag does indeed deploy, they will be safely secured against the seat. At this point, the seat belt has carried out its intended purpose and is no longer usable. Once the gas charge is blown, and the seat belt is locked, it will no longer work during another accident. A vehicle with locked seat belts will not pass inspections, and therefore cannot be resold even if everything else is properly restored. Here at Safety Restore, we are experts in rebuilding locked seat belts after accident. We only use OEM parts to rebuild them and guarantee that they will function like new once repaired. If you have a locked seat belt that has been in an accident, visit our online store at SafetyRestore.com to have it repaired!
Forty thousand deaths occur every year from car accidents. That’s 40,000! It is one of the leading causes of death and injury in the entire country of USA. What’s more tragic is that many of those deaths could have been prevented if seat belts were worn. Seat belt is truly an engineered masterpiece for saving lives. Its foremost and basic function is to lock up at sudden stops, securely keeping you in your seat preventing any injury. However, that is not the only intention of the seat belt. What many do not know, is that each seat belt manufactured for the U.S. after 1996 is equipped with a gas charge that has 1 life of its own – and that’s to save yours. When a serious accident occurs, the airbags equipped with the vehicle go off rapidly, and magically the seat belts blow out simultaneously. Why? Well, the airbag is a very powerful bag blowing up at an insane speed at the place where your face is… You do not know want to hit it. So a rapid gas-charge goes off inside the retractor pulling the seat belt back (tightening it) and you with it against the back of the seat. This ensures that you do not hit the airbag. If you suspect any problems with your seat belt whatsoever, do not wait to have them repaired. If your vehicle has been in any sort of collision, you must repair the seat belts as they are almost guaranteed to be bad. Straps get frayed, cut, torn, dogs chew on it – we can replace it.
