The Seat belts

Seat belts are a critical component of your car’s crash safety system. These vehicle restraints keep occupants propped in the correct position, minimizing the risk of injury or death upon impact. The system is designed to stretch and absorb impact energy.

Webbing

The webbing is the part of the system that is wrapped around the body of the driver or passenger. This polyester belt is designed to support more than 28kNw.





Retractor

The retractor is the winding mechanism that allows the webbing to extend or pull back. Upon impact, this component locks the webbing in place, securing the occupant on the seat. Retractors come with a locking mechanism that stops the movement of the webbing when it is unspooled at a rate faster than normal and when the brakes are applied quickly.

Seat belt tongue

The seat belt tongue is a metal component that is connected to the webbing to fasten its seatbelt. This part inserted into the seat belt buckle to secure the system.

Seat belt buckle

The seat belt buckle is the mechanism that fastens and releases the seat belt tongue. It is designed in a way that makes it extremely easy for the user to secure the belt and for rescue workers to free occupants in case of a vehicle crash.
