What Is Seat Belt Extender?
A seat belt extender is composed of the two parts of a seatbelt namely the metal tongue and receptacle. The concept of seat belt extenders is a pretty simple one. There is usually no installation required because seatbelt extenders literally just click themselves into your seat belt buckle. Extenders are used by plus size men and women, pregnant women, etc., because normal seatbelts may not have the extra length required.
There are different types of seatbelt extenders available and are classified by purpose or design. We have airplane seat belt extenders, car seat belt extenders and child car seat extenders. Either of these options can be rigid seat belt extenders, adjustable ones or regular ones.
They all have different styles as well. Style refers to the construction of the extender for example, is yours made of regular safety belt material or is it rigid and stands upright when buckled in? Picking an extender style is a critical part of ensuring that your seatbelt is the best choice for your needs.
We advise our customers to allow our technicians to inspect your vehicle before deciding to use any extender of your choice. It is important to note that every seatbelt designed has its own unique specifications. Ask your manufacturer about this.
One thing you should always ask your manufacturer is whether they have tested their products severally.
