How do I inspect the seat belts?

You should periodically inspect your seat belts to make sure that they are in good condition. To do so, extend each belt fully, and use your hands and eyes to search for fraying, wearing, or cuts in the belt. If you notice any of these, have your belts replaced immediately.
