Seatbelts Information

Seatbelts or safety belts are belt assemblies that consist of a belt and coupling to hold the occupants of a vehicle from moving  or being ejected from the equipment in the event of an impact.  They are typically nylon belts with a width sufficient to secure an occupant without seriously injuring them.   There are different kinds of seatbelts some are secured at only two points around ones waist typically called a lap belt.  Others have 3 connection points and in addition to a belt around the waist include a belt that goes over ones shoulder like a sash.  Belts with 4 or more connection points also exist and may be found in things like child safety seats and also in race cars or other more inherently dangerous vehicles.
