Restraining the Restraints: Ensuring Your Seatbelt Is Properly Placed

If you’re a fairly short person, you may have had issues with your seatbelt riding up and lying across your neck. This is both uncomfortable and dangerous. You must modify the seatbelt to ensure it lies across your torso and not your neck. You can’t rig the seatbelt mechanism to be lower in the car, but you can add two accessories.

One is a bracket or pad that pulls the shoulder belt down. This bracket or pad sits on the lap belt, and you either hook the shoulder belt under the bracket or secure it within the pad. The second item is a pad that wraps around the shoulder belt at neck height, providing padding for wherever the shoulder belt sits.
