BogMonster Posted August 21, 2006 Share Posted August 21, 2006 Hands up all Defender owners who are sick to death of slamming their seat belt in the door lock like this? Yep that would be most of you I guess it very quickly wrecks the belt webbing and is sooo easy to do when you get out. We have just had seat belt laws imposed on all roads here (previously only applied to main roads) and having shut my belt in the door at least 20 times in the last month or so I decided action was required.... So I made this from an offcut of thin alloy: One of the original door striker spacers is there for comparison, the alloy is a similar thickness. Remove one of the spacers from the striker and replace with the made-up plate, all you need then is a cable tie, and you have this: No more mangled seat belt I hope I made mine with an air nibbler but it could be done with even something as basic as a hacksaw and electric drill, it's dead easy and took me about 20 minutes to do, others may have come up with a similar idea but I haven't seen it before so thought I would post it up Next project: how to avoid removing the belt loops from every pair of jeans you own, on the same door striker...
