    and used on a lap belt is how they originally were intended in the mid 60's

    once you tighten your seat belt they slack goes away

    they were NEVER intended to be used on a shoulder belt for driver "comfort"

    NO I am NOT kidding

    no one races down the street like NASCAR, it is those stupid soccer moms driving their two ton Suburbans texting that we all need to be afraid of

    it is your life, live it as you wish, I was just pointing out a safety issue

    To each is own man. Don't punk someone for trying to help out though.

    Good day, My 1971 does NOT have (presently) the shoulder strap upper attachment point. Would someone please kindly post a photo of what this should be. I fear in the resto, the attachment point female part was not welded on. I guess I'm gonna have to remove my headliner to check. Thanks! Also, does Classic Industries sell just the top part seat belt?

    I'm pretty sure there are a couple holes in the roof structure where the bracket was bolted.

    Feel around for them.

    75 was the first year they were mandatory. My 73 truck has a place for them but they were a "Option" in 73..

    GM started putting the 3rd mounting point in all their cars in Feb 66.
    Although the Federal Mandate Required all cars made Jan 1, 1968 forward
    came from the factory with 3 points.
