How do I buckle a seat belt?

Seat belts are very important safety features, and you should never be in a moving vehicle without wearing a seat belt that is properly fastened. Buckling your seat belt is easy, and only takes a few steps: 1. Slowly pull the seat belt out from its standard position. 2. Pull the seat belt across your body. 3. Locate the seat belt buckle on the seat, on the side of your body opposite the seat belt. 4. Insert the seat belt latch into the seat belt buckle until you hear it click into place. 5. Attempt to move the seat belt to be sure that it is securely fastened. Tip Be sure that the seat belt does not get twisted while you are putting it on. If you notice that the belt is twisted, unbuckle and untwist the belt, and then latch it again.
