How to Buy a Good Quality Seat Belt Pad

Do you find the seat belt often digs into your shoulder or neck? Purchasing a seat belt pad may be the simple answer you’re after. Not only does it offer comfort, but it’s a fun way to personalize the look of your vehicle. Here are a few tips to consider regarding seat belt pads:

  • Inexpensive accessory: Seat belt pads are a relatively inexpensive accessory to purchase, and can be found at a wide range of retailers and auto shops. Even if you want to get one for each of the seat belts in your car, it should still be a relatively inexpensive shopping trip.

  • Personalize your style: Personalize the look of your car by picking a seat belt pad with texture, a pattern, in various colors, and different materials. They look like a sleeve that fits over your seat belt, and are kept closed with a strip of Velcro. They prevent the seat belt from digging into your neck and shoulder.

  • Look for quality: When shopping take a good look at the quality of the stitching. Look for any loose threads, tears, or pulls as they will only grow.

  • Choose your material: Some of the materials you can choose from include sheepskin, memory foam, wetsuit material (such as neoprene), faux fur, and more.

You can easily solve the problem of your seat belt cutting into your neck and shoulder with the help of a seat belt pad. These relatively inexpensive accessories also mean you can customize the interior.
