Hi Pete, no, I need about 10 70cm lengths. Since last posting, I've rung a
car breakers who say they will sell me a couple of belts (cut out of
smashed up cars I suppose) for a couple of pounds each - excellent! This
was only after I'd rung accessories suppliers who sucked in their breath
and said no mate you can't get hold of that. The penny dropped though and I
remembered a huge breaker's yard a few miles away.
If you know the right breakers you could go get some thing like a bit
of trim off any car and just stuff the belts down your trousers. ;-)
The ones round here let you wander about after you've told them what
you are looking for ie. bit off a Mondeo, there over there mate
halfway down on the left and away you go off to play with the spiders,
tiptoe round the guard dogs poo and play spot what car that used to be
If you haven't alresady got some from the car breakers, you might
try a different tact - I once bought some inch wide webbing off
http://www.rykneldtean.co.uk/products.html and remember seeing al lsorts
of widths and lengths - their web site seems down now... I originally
searched google and yell.co.uk for equestrian suppliers...
Not sure about how much "give" you want in your seat base (I presume).
Seat belt webbing is highly technical stuff, as Securon would tell
It would certainly do the job I suspect you want it for but...
It has an inbuilt one way stretch. That is to say, it is designed to
stretch under load (impact) and once it has stretched it locks and
will not stretch again.
In a car that means if you have a minor bump, ie, under 20mph or where
you receive bruising or stiffness from contact with the seat belt, it
will have lost its stretch. You get your car repaired, but retain the
same seatbelts because the insurers won't pay for new ones. The next
time you have the same impact you find your ribs have cracked...
It could be that in use in a seat the constant load will stretch the
belting and it could then lock and become decidedly uncomfortable.
Just a thought.
