Seat belts are the main component of the vehicles supplemental restraint system that help keep an individual safe in the event of an accident. It is important to always have your seat belt webbing, airbags, module, sensors, and other parts of the SRS in working condition. If needed, get replacement seat belt webbing, or get them repaired if possible with RepairMySRS.
The seat belt systems in a vehicle have a pretensioner. This pretensioner creates pressure that causes the retractor to rotate and tighten the seat belt webbing.
However, if the accident gave enough force, the seat belt webbing may not be enough to keep the person in their seat. Though it helps minimize the amount of movement the individual experiences, they still may end up moving around. Sometimes, this extra movement may be enough to allow the person to hit something, like the steering wheel or dashboard. If the person happens to be wearing a watch or any rings, there head might hit them, causing even further damage. For this reason, it is a good idea to drive with your hands at the 10 and 2 o’clock position rather than the 11 & 1 o’clock, keeping your hands away from the direction your head would travel if in a serious accident.
One thing to consider when getting the seat belts replaced, is getting a new webbing color to add some character to your car. There are many options to choose from, including Ferrari red, or orange bordered. Every color conveys a certain emotion and can give the driver/passengers a different experience.
Your seat belts and all other parts of your vehicles supplemental Restraint System should always be in working condition. If necessary, they may need to get reset, replaced, or repaired. If your seat belts have stretched during an accident, if they have gotten frayed or torn over time, or even if your dog has chewed through them, it is time to get replacement seat belt webbing.
