Static Lap and Diagonals

Static Lap and DiagonalsStatic Lap and diagonal seat belts were fitted to most European made cars between 1963 through to the early/mid 1970ís.

In parts of Europe and the USA, some cars were fitted with Diagonal only seat belts, though this was not an option for the UK. We would recommend Lap and diagonals over diagonal only seat belts as there will not be an issue over finding a suitable mounting point in the floor or sill for most vehicles and offer vastly improved safety.

Modern seat belts using cable stalks for the front are known as single handed seat belts, as the rigid buckle (stalk) allows the seat belt to be worn with just one hand as opposed to both hands with webbing buckles.

We have a full range of different anchor plates and either webbing, bladed or cable buckle options. Webbing buckles range from 150mm through to 450mm as standard, plus there are options for adjustable webbing buckles. Bladed buckles come in 90, 126, 140 and 185mm lengths. Cable stalks are 200, 310, 350, 450 and 525mm lengths as standard.

If you require a Modern Static Lap and Diagonal for the front in a vehicle with bench seat you can use the long adjustable webbing buckles as cable stalks are not generally suitable for this type of seating.

Please note that for most vehicles a webbing buckle should be used for rear seat applications.
