Although a collision may cost you a trip to the car repair shop, wearing a seatbelt can oftentimes prevent you and any passengers from being seriously injured. Find out how seatbelts are made by watching the video clip.
First, a seatbelt engineer must fit the belt to your specific car. When the seatbelt is being produced, the locking mechanism is installed first. This mechanism ensures that your seatbelt stays tight when a hard deceleration is detected. After this, the woven polyester webbing is attached to the aluminum spool, and then the seatbelt is tested to ensure it is safe.
