Every system is made when ordered to ensure a current SFI date.
How often should I inspect and/or replace my restraints?
Simpson recommends replacing your restraints every two years. You should inspect your belts before every use. Replace belts that have nick, cuts, excessive wear, fraying and/or have been exposed to harmful chemicals or the environment. Proper restrains are a very important factor in safety. Replace any belts that experienced a crash or an even other than normal use. Do not use the restrain system ever again, even if it appears OK. We recommend (and some sanctioning bodies require) the belts replaced two years after the date stamped on the SFI tag. Consult your sanctioning body for more information.
Does Simpson re-certify seatbelts?
No. Our first priority is your safety and we do not believe this is a safe practice.
How should I clean my restraints?
Use a mild detergent and soft cloth. Never use solvents or harsh chemicals.
Are Simpson restraints DOT and SFI approved?
All Simpson restraints are SFI approved and dated. Simpson restraints are NOT DOT approved
What is the advantage/difference to “pull up” or “pull down”?
What you use is a matter of personal preference and the equipment you are using. For example, does the belt go through the seat? Will you adjust it, or will someone on the crew? What hardware works best with your set up? Bolt-in, Floor Mount, or Wrap Around? The “pull up” belts are 62’ in length. The “pull down” belts are 52” in length. (inches are in reference to the lap belt)
I do not see the restraint set up that I need for my car. Are there any other options?
Yes. Simpson’s restraints can be purchased ala carte so you can get each component just how you need it.
I need a different length on the restraints than what is offered can Simpson do this?
Simpson can build custom belts. Please call our customer service line for additional info. 800-654-7223
