How do I fasten and adjust the seat belts?

Seat belts are crucial for protection of drivers and passengers on the road. Most states in the US also mandate that you and your passengers wear seat belts at all times. Fastening and adjusting the belts is simple, and you need only follow basic steps:

  • To Insert the Latch: Slide the latch plate into the buckle until it clicks.

  • To Adjust the Belt: Pull the belt so that it fits snugly.

The lap belt should be situated low on the hips, and the shoulder belt should also be snug across your chest and shoulder.
