Señior riseguy - in our planes, don't think certified parts are required, they are experimental

Just checked it out. Looks like you can use a rope if you want.

first is the door upside down so you can see the over all.
2nd is the end bushing with rod
3rd is the center bush cut in place with the rod in it.
4th is the temp rod in place with the hole mess filled with flox and 2 bid over flox ( the rod was coated with 50# oil to keep the bush clean).
5th is the bolt for opening, later i'll cut and trim for lock like a bolt on a gun.

This started me a thinkin.

A number of years ago a buddy had a problem with the Saturns being produced. One from the assembly line failed the crash test. He tracked down the problem. The safty belt manufacturer thought he was doin Saturn a favor by sewing the seat belt extra good!

There was a loop of material in the belt and the number of stitches was important as it was part of the energy apsorption "system" that protected a passenger in a crash. they had to recall all of the cars and replace all the belts.

mmmm, wonder if they still do that - that "could" make car belts better in a plane in a crash!

I would have no problem putting a factory seat belt in a plane for safety sake for a hard landing. They go through very tough and strict safety test before they're accepted. The only exception I would think of is they're not made for a 4 point setup and they're awfully heavy. With the exception of rollover SUVs, I'm not sure what kind of testing they have in their pendulum setup for being inverted.

thats not how i remember it. the loop or pucker i call it, is in all belts. if you go out to your car(Toyota) and put the belt all the way out, you will see a tag sewn on it. you can put 2 or 3 finger in side the pucker. now if you used the belt in a crash the belt will stretch and the so called pucker will be gone. So, if they ask you if you were using your seat belt........ they all ready know !
