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.
Also available now is Gorilla brand heavy duty mounting 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!
WARNING: No warranty tape is available if the weather in you area is not above 75 degrees. A heated garage does not count. We lived in the north and most people don't heat their homes to 72 even. Garages tend to be draftier and have more cold spots than interior areas even if heated to a certain temperature.
All pieces are the same so one cannot fail and another not fail.
No warranty tape will be provided if you do not use 3M adhesive promoter. While 95% of people will have no problems without it if the heed the cautions noted here, some will choose to install it in less than optimal conditions or choose to try and use the product before it has had 24 hours to bond. Optional Gorilla brand heavy duty mounting tape is also available.
Please watch our video for additional details.
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).
