    Since modern seat belts include sensors, tensioners and other advanced safety technology, it has become a lot more expensive to replace them. At Grimmer Motors, we can organise a re-webbing service for your frayed or damaged seat belt webbing. This means that you won’t need to replace the entire seat belt assembly.

     

    How can a frayed seat belt affect your safety?

    Seat belts are made out of a special material which is designed to keep drivers/passengers safe under extreme forces. Worn, frayed or damaged seat belts can be unsafe. This means that you at a higher risk if an accident occurs. Think about a seat belt like a T-shirt or other clothing item. A minor tear may not be noticeable at first. However, the small tear can easily turn into a large tear

    When a seat belt becomes frayed, it can lose up to 60 percent of its strength. This means that in a crash, it is more likely to snap or come loose. For this reason, we recommend that you replace/fix a frayed seat belt as soon as you notice it, rather than waiting for your next Warrant of Fitness. Seat belts are examined during a safety check to ensure they are safe.

     

    Advantages of rewebbing over replacement:

    • Rewebbing can save you money – With some new replacement seat belts costing over $800 + installation, replacement of a frayed seat belt can quickly become expensive. In most cases, rewebbing a frayed seat belt is the most cost-effective option and is generally better than second hand safety belt options.
    • Avoid having to find the correct part – It can often be time-consuming ringing multiple wreckers to see if they have the correct part. Unfortunately, this is sometimes the only option for older model vehicles. Rewebbing a seat belt is often an easier process, and no new parts have to be ordered from overseas.
    • Peace of mind – Since seatbelts / safety belts are safety items, you need to know you can trust them if you are involved in an accident. Having your seat belt / safety belt re-webbed to Warrant of Fitness (WOF) compliance standards gives you that peace of mind, as you never quite know the true condition of a second hand safety belt.
