Seatbelt Retention Buckles
Ever had your seat belt buckles slap the side of your vehicle? This can happen when the windows are down, top is down, doors are removed, rear seats are down or any combination of those situations.
These seatbelt retention buckles are easy to install and keep the buckle from moving. Leaves you with a clean look and potentially less noise.
Comes with pre-mounted authentic 3M. For customers living in extreme environments (cold, hot, or humid), we recommend purchasing 3M adhesive promoter to apply to the application area prior to installing these. Use it ONLY in the area of application that will be covered by tape.
NOTE: 2 Door vehicles only come with a passenger side retention buckle for the front (1). 4 Door vehicles comes with passenger front and rear + driver's side rear buckle (3).
Why no retention buckle for the driver?
Put your seatbelt on while you drive. You'll live longer!
Clean the application area and make sure it is free of dirt, dust, debris, Armor All, etc.
You may use an isopropyl alcohol wipe to prep the area as well. For customers living in extreme environments (cold, hot, or humid), we recommend purchasing 3M adhesive promoter to apply to the application area prior to installing these. Use it ONLY in the area of application that will be covered by tape.
Install in a very warm environment (70-80 degrees) and REFRAIN from use for 24 hours while the bond strengthens.
After application, the bond strength will increase as the adhesive flows onto the surface (also referred to as “wet out”). At room temperature approximately 50% of ultimate bond strength will be achieved after 20 minutes, 90% after 24 hours and 100% after 72 hours. This flow is faster at higher temperatures and slower at lower temperatures. Ultimate bond strength can be achieved more quickly (and in some cases bond strength can be increased) by exposure of the bond to elevated temperatures for 1 hour).
