Steel Safety Buckle
This buckle has proven extremely successful when fitted to our
harnesses as an alternative to the standard ‘quick release’ buckle.
There is a knurled sliding bar for adjustment designed to prevent
webbing slip.
It helps prevent those passengers with inquisitive fingers,
challenging behaviour or learning difficulties from releasing the
harness buckle.
The buckle is made from Type 316 Stainless Steel and Nylon 6 and
is assembled with tamper proof screws.
The buckle operates in reverse to the standard vehicle buckles as it
is opened by raising a spring loaded lever or over-catch and will not
press release. The spring loaded over-catch locks the buckle when
assembled and prevents accidental opening.
40mm Buckle
40mm buckle - B/Strain 630 kgs.
50mm buckle - B/Strain 500 kgs
We recommend that the buckle instructions provided
with each harness are displayed in a prominent
position in the vehicle - to instruct the user how to release
the buckle mechanism in the event of an accident.
50mm Buckle
40mm Adjuster Buckle
To Extend Straps
To Tighten Straps
The 40mm Adjuster is slightly spring
loaded to lock the webbing into position.
Simply pull the tail-end of
the webbing strap.
To release the webbing you need to
squeeze the Adjuster whilst pulling on
the lower webbing strap.
The Adjuster will lock the
webbing into position
50mm Aluminium Bar Buckle
Webbing is threaded through the
sliding bar buckle
Sliplock Slide
Loose ends of webbing
are often passed back
through these slides to
prevent slippage & to
prevent the Fixing
Straps from loosening
during transit.
Emergency Seat Belt Cutter
We strongly recommend that a seat belt cutter is kept in the
vehicle as a safety precaution for those harnesses fitted with a
Steel Safety Buckle.
It is perfectly safe as the blade is encased.
