Default Golf cart seat belt

Wondering if they make a "stalk" type seat belt receiver for golf carts. It currently requires 2 hands and it would be nice if the receiver was rigid so putting on the belt could be done one handed.

That said, would there be a disadvantage to having a rigid stalk belt receiver? This is a 2 passenger cart.

Our seat belts have a snap on plastic covering on the short piece of webbing (receiver side) that stabilizes this, I think this is what you are looking for. These were installed by Village Discount Golf carts (441 just North of 42), you might be able to get these there.

Something like that would be fine. Do you have a picture?

Another thing I'm not fond of with these belts - if you move just a little bit, the belt will tighten and NOT loosen up until you completely unbuckle, let the strap retract completely into its little cage, and then pull it all the way out again.

I sometimes have to pull over and re-buckle my buckle when I'm on long trips, even if it's for something minor like going over a particularly big bump in the pavement.

I wish my cart came with the type that only locks up if the vehicle comes to an abrupt stop (as in - if you have to slam on the brakes, or if you actually hit something).

Hope the photos attach.... The one is the piece of plastic, the second is the actual installation on our cart.

The ones you describe (like in a car) are much more expensive, and depending on the model may actually have electrical connections to the air bag sensors.

Thanks for doing that. Now I know what to look/ask for.

Yes. That’s what I have, and what I installed myself in my previous cart. If you are handy with tools, have a look on eBay. They don’t cost much, and installation takes just a few minutes.

Ace Hardware had 2 piece clip that attaches to the seatbelt, I'm not sure if they still carry them.

Yes… have had them for several years…use them all the time. They saved both my son and I serious injury when an old guy t-boned us and tipped us almost over. Good investment. Villages Golf Carts installed them while I waited.

They do, and I installed a set. Not at all convenient. I acquired airplane style seatbelts, and these are much easier to use.

But don’t those require 2 hands to click together?

Where did you get the airplane style seatbelts? I've been searching Amazon and eBay and can't seem to find many of that style. I assume that the 'airplane style' means that you lift the buckle to unlock, rather than press a red button?
