    I have a doubt with the original(o.e.m) seat belts.All the seat belts i,ve seen, block up when you pull strong from it.But not the Blazer belts.Does it only works when the truck is in motion,with the collision inertia?Or it doesn,t works fine?
    Thanks.

    Thats how mine are, they have a pendulum which when off center or hard braking locks up the belt.

    I started with nothing and I still have most of that left! - <a target="_blank" href=http://www.echobit.com:81/k5/> Pictures</a>
