Re: Seat Belts for a jeep
Apologies for a late response, summer season you see, laziness creeps in
Okay, a few more details. Please look at post # 15 in this thread
http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/4x4-te...ml#post3500830 (Seat Belts for a jeep)
The second picture has details of how a bracket was welded on to the roll cage pipe.
The 3 point belts were bought off the shelf wagonR/ Gypsy (non-inertia type), costing Rs. 800 each.
Here are a few more pictures
-1st picture illustrates the bracket welded to the roll cage pipe. 8mm plate bent to shape and a hole drilled to suit the bolt size. the belt from MSIL comes with bolt/nuts washer.
-2nd picture is how the 1st point is fixed
-3rd picture illustrates how the 2nd point is fixed. Generally, there exists a provision in most seats for this point. For me, it did. I have Ford Figo seats done up.
-4th pic illustrates 3rd point is fixed. As you see there is a slight space constraint. Need to exercise caution while welding the bracket. A few trials before the final weld in position is desirable.
-Picture 5 illustrates a view of belt strapped in position
Pictures 2, 3, 4, 5 show fixing to the driver and passenger seats.
-Picture 6 illustrates a view of the belts for the rear seats strapped in position
-Picture 7 illustrates fixing of the 3rd point. Here, the bracket is not used. But suggest that a small reinforcement plate be used at the back (I just did it to be safe, given that there isn't any undue stress on that point, I do not feel it is compulsory).
- Picture 8 illustrates fixing of the 2nd point. Same as the front seats, provision in the seats did not necessitate fixing a bracket.
- The point 1 fixing varies from Jeep to Jeep, as the roll cage bar is different as per taste. Will post a picture of my setup in a while (away from home now).
Hope this helps
