Seat Belt Compatibility Questions
"What Seat Belt will fit my vehicle?"
Seatbeltsplus.com is proud to offer Seat Belts that are assembled, sewn, finished and packaged in the U.S.A. with foreign & domestic components. They are aftermarket seat belts and should not be considered original factory replacement seat belts for any car. We can NOT obtain OEM (original equipment manufacturer) seat belts or individual parts such as buckles, tongues or trim coverings. If you require a original factory replacement part please contact your vehicles manufacturer. However, if your seat belt is no longer in production, impossible to find, or if you don't want to shell out hundreds for the price of an OEM seat belt, then one of our aftermarket seat belts may be the solution for you. Our seat belts are affordable and fit most cars and trucks on the road today!
"How will I know if this seat belt fits my vehicle?" -Check before ordering.
We legally can not tell you any of our aftermarket product fits your car. Our Seat Belts are designed to be generic in order to cover as many applications as possible. There is no list or reference that matches our aftermarket Seat Belts with your factory application. We can tell you how to measure and examine your existing seat belt to find the best replacement available based on length and buckle style. When purchasing a retractable safety belt please ensure you will have enough clearance for the retractor housing. All retractors should be mounted directly beneath the shoulder loop either on the door pillar or to the floor with "L" brackets and feed vertically.
#1- Check how your seat belts mount.
Before ordering please verify you can remove all trim covering access to your seat belt and hardware.
Newer vehicles may hide retractors and components behind plastic panels. You will also want to check
there are no twist or places the webbing will rub in the path of the seat belt.
#2- Determine what length Seat Belt you will need.Always check if our belts will be long enough to fit your application prior to ordering. If you do not see the information you are looking for please call us and we will be happy to assist you. Measure both sides of your existing seat belt.
Our Lap Belts range from 60 up to 90 inches to best suit your need.
Our 2-Point retractables are 53 inches on retractor side, buckle side varies depending on model.
Our 3-Point retractables are 133 inches on retractor side, buckle side varies depending on model.
#3- Check how your retractor mounts.If you are ordering a retractable seat belt remember the
RETRACTOR MUST MOUNT VERTICALLY DIRECTLY BENEATH THE SHOULDER LOOP!
Do NOT mount retractor at an angle. If necessary use a level to ensure proper installation.
Do not mount retractor flush to the floor, behind seats, or mount on the ceiling.
The inertia centrifuge was not designed to work in these positions and will not lock when installed improperly.
#4- Measure what length Buckle you will need.
Next measure the length between the buckle and the location you wish to mount it.
Our Buckle sides vary in length depending on the seat belt model. We offer a variety
of buckles to help you find a match as close as possible to your original.

NOTE: This is an aftermarket/universal seat belt and is not meant to work with OEM factory components or sensors. Seat belts must be replaced as a complete unit. Do NOT mix and match our tongues/buckles with original equipment components, they will not match up correctly.
What if my vehicle never had seat belt?
Some custom applications where seat belts were not originally part of the car may required drilling holes and using re-enforcement washers to support the seat belt anchors. Our Retractable seat belts work with inertia reels and must be mounted vertically. If you do not already have a location to mount the retractors vertically you will need Hardware Kit #1 and the "L" brackets supplied within.
