Jagman06 Seems like new is the the answer, thanks for the responses. I thought used would give the all the guides, bits and pieces but I can see the points raised here.

cboy In my limited experience I've found new 3-point belts cheaper to buy new than to get at a wrecking yard. They look better, come with a guarantee, and are shipped right to my door (no running around to find them). Maybe it's just our local junk yards are overpriced but I'd go new if it was my choice.

Chopt 48 And new instead of used or abused. I've always run salvaged seat belts but am probably going to the new aftermarket ones the next time I build the truck as mine are over 30 years old now.

matt167 no, not at all.. wrecking yard is right.. a lot of newer cars have gas charged belts that tighten up with the gas and are 1 time use.. just like air bags, unhooking them wrong will end up actavating the system. while they will not implode, they will be rendered useless afterword

OneMoreTime I would have to do some checking but I think the new belts have an automatic tensioning device on them to tighten them in an accident..It is controlled from the air bag circuit so when the air bags go off the seat belts tighten..

Like I say I would need to do the homework on this one..

Now there are lots of options for belts so I bet one can find something suitable..

DanTwoLakes Self destruct after being taken out of the car? I think they were pulling your leg.

Imploding Seat Belts

I was looking for a complete set of used shoulder/seat beats and was told by one wrecking yard that I needed to look for an older donor because the new ones implode and cannot be taken out an reused.

Has anyone heard of this? I know some cars use a computer to control seat belts but belts auto self destructing?
