This has already been cleared by SSS, so here goes.

Anybody who's ever strapped a driver in a car with "pull up" style lap belts know how much of a pain it can be to get ahold of the slippery little devils and get a good pull on them. We've been using these belt tighteners in our other types of racecars and since land speed racers tend to be very safety conscious I thought I'd put them out there.

These are CNC cut and powder coated silver. Cost is $15.00 sipped in the lower 48. You can reach me here or at dbwhiskers@aol.com.

That's a good idea, a lot nicer than my piece of wooden dowel. cheers

Thanks, and a portion of the proceeds go to this site. Can't thank this place enough for all its valuable information.

Stan:  That'd be the piece of material that goes over your shoulders and down to your CROTCH and makes you walk all stooped over forward when you get out of the car? rolleyes

SSS, how would you know about crotch straps, riding a 2 wheeler like you do. I never had a problem with tight belts, Jim Jenson (little Jim) would really tighten them up.

I don't know about crotch STRAPS -- I'll grant ya that.  But I do know the difference between a crouch and a crotch.

Really. tongue

I'd like to give some feedback on this gizmo. It worked well and my crew liked it for both the pull up lap strap and the shoulder straps. If another run is done, I'd add a bit of meat (either thicker or wider) to the elbow going down to the narrow part that slips into the belt loop. We bent it a bit. All in all though I like it and was well worth the money.  cheers

Thanks for the input. I've had a couple people mention the same thing, but its never happened to me. I'll take them up a gauge on the next run. Can you tell me if it twisted there or stretched open?

Stretched open just a bit, maybe slight twist. Didn't cause a problem though and the guys helping me really liked it.

Do you still have any of these doobers?

I think I'd like 4.
