Post subject:  Need new seat belts. Any suggestions?

I have 2” Corbeau four point racing seat belts in my se7en and they never stay where you adjust them. I am always tightening them up especially the shoulder straps and the ends are always flapping in the wind. Does anyone have any suggestions for affordable 2” four point belts? FleeBay has all kinds with prices all over the place. I do not do track days or any other kind of racing. Thanks, Russ

Pricewise it's probably good to stick to someplace like Summit Racing, Jegs, or Speedway. I'd be leery of belts on Ebay unless you recognize the brand.

And sadly, many of the recognized brands on Ebay turn out to be counterfeits. Let the buyer beware! :?

Russ,
I used the G-Force tuner belts. They have the red push button release, so they meet some of the street legal requirements. They are not DOT approved, but I sure like their quality.

Russ, are you saying that the straps loosen up? Or that you have to retighten them after a period of settling in?

I didn't like my original eBay 5 point no name brand belts with only using 4 belts. Not because they loosened up, but because they rode up on my stomach (or I rode down?) This is not good for an accident. too much internal organ damage can occur. I then added the 5th crotch belt. This took care of the riding-up issue. I eventually replaced them with eBay Humvee 3 point retractable inertia belts. If they're good enough for our fighting guys, they're good enough for me. :mrgreen: They are much easier to enter and exit, no riding belt issue, no flapping belt ends to deal with and now I can reach the dash to turn on the lights, wipers etc when I need to. I know everyone has their preferences.......But I will caution you on 4-point belts in general. :boxing:

Nice looking belts, Martin. At the top end of my budget so I will have to see. Good thing they have red. Russ

Chuck it is the shoulder straps that keep loosening.

If it is just the shoulder straps you are not happy with, can you try new buckles?

I don't think the buckle will come off without cutting the belt and then finding the right buckle.

And I have a spare pair of those if anyone is interested. Not sure what I paid for them, but I have them, would love them to find a good home.
