How do I buckle the lap-shoulder seatbelt?

Seatbelts are one of the most important safety features on your vehicle. It’s important, and legally required, that you always wear your seat belt when in the car. Here’s how to put on your lap-shoulder belt. 1. Adjust the seat and sit upright. 2. Pull the belt with the latch plate from the side of the car, and run it across your body. Make sure that there are no twists and tangles in the belt. 3. Insert the latch plate into the belt buckle until you hear a click. 4. Try and move the belt buckle and latch to make sure that they are securely fastened. 5. Adjust the shoulder strap height. 6. Pull lightly on the shoulder strap to make sure that the belt is tight.
