Seat Belt

Postby Rye » 19 Jan 2018, 02:22

Just curious if anybody has a seatbelt receiver mounted on their chair so you can buckle the vehicle shoulder harness to the chair instead of the floor. I find the one on the ground is right in the way when loading and unloading. Not sure if a chair mounted harness would be safe in a major accident, but then again neither are the wheelchair locks.

The wheelchair mount, electronic or straps are to stop the chair going forwards in a sudden stop.

The belt issupposed to stop you doing so. Adding a reciever to the chair hugely increases the load and reliance on the chairs clamp in an accident so shouldnt be done.
