Add Article To List

Joe and Kyle walk you through what Speedway's 5 Point Harness Belt Combo is and how to properly install it.

This combo includes two shoulder belts, a lap belt and a sub belt. The combo can be mounted by wrap-around or bolt in. Once the belt is properly installed, make sure to keep the excess belt from catching onto something else.

Upgrade your car in both safety and appearance!

Video Transcript

Joe: "Hey everyone, welcome to Speedway Motors Tech Talk I'm Joe and today Kyle and I are going to talk about this Speedway Motor seat belt combo and first of all Kyle tell us what is in this kit if I order one of these."

Kyle: "Yeah this is our affordable SFI rated, seat belt kit. And you have both shoulder harnesses your lap belt and your sub-belt.

Joe: "Okay and this only comes one way, it's pulled down right?"

Kyle: "Yes and by pull down we mean as in you'd pull away from yourself to tighten yourself down on the lap belt and that only has to do with the lap belt."

Joe: "And this can be mounted, wrap around as well as bolt in right?"

Kyle: "Yes, the kit comes with five tabs for each belt. Otherwise, like you said, we can do the wrap around."

Joe: "And that brings us to the next thing that we're going to talk about; properly wrapping the belt. That's something that once you've done it once or twice, you know how to do it forever. Kyle's been doing this for a million years, but if you've never done it before sometimes it's a tricky thing to figure out how to wrap it properly, so Kyle here is going to show us how to do this right. So we've got kind of a fake harness bar here. If we were in the car the seat would be here and the driver would be pointed that way. So you go through the buckle once"

Kyle: "And they're gonna go finish through the buckle on the other side, tighten it up and then the biggest thing is just to finish it off by going back through the buckle and tighten it up."

Joe: "And there it is. And like I say, it's not rocket science, but if you've never done it before sometimes being able to see it just once is all you need. And you have this then, the floppy leftover. You know people have different ways of rolling it up and putting a zip tie through it or taping it or just leaving it hanging."

Kyle: "Yeah something simple. You can either zip tie them together, roll it up put some duct tape around it, anything, basically just to keep it from dangling or catching onto something and messing it up."

Joe: "Right, all right well that's all there is to it. Speedway motors seat belt combo, right way to wrap. Thank you for showing us that Kyle and thanks to everybody for watching."
