    I purchased an '88 Blazer as a tow rig for an anticipated purchase of a travel trailer in Nov. 00. My problem is that the rear seatbelts are ridgid and come out at an approx. 70 degree angle. This makes attaching a carseat securely imposible. My question is could the mounting bracket on the floor be bent by machine without compromising safety, or is there an aftermarket part that could be purchased that would solve the problem?
    thanks

    Or you could replace the rigid mount ones with non-rigid ones that are like the old style typical belts. I did this in the back of my truck (not for the reason you are looking for) when I changed my interior color and they do a good job. Definitely would be easier to put a car seat in there.

    Problem as I remember it if you bend the original one doesn't it hamper your ability to flip and fold the seat?

    I'm not sure if I understand the problem- doesn't your back seat have lap belts? Both my little ones are in car seats, and the lap belts work perfect. I had to install a tether bolt to make the baby seat legal, but other than that the rear seat belts work great with both the baby carrier and the booster seat.........
