You should always adjust your center lap belt. If the belt is too loose, you will not be properly secured in the event of an accident. If the belt is too tight, you will be in severe discomfort. Here’s how to adjust the belt.

  1. To tighten the center lap belt, grab the loose end of the belt, and tug on it until the belt is the desired tautness.

  2. To loosen the center lap belt, tilt the belt latch away from you, and then pull on the safety belt.
