Seat Belt Chime Eliminator

So to fix my irritation of the seat belt chime, I measured my seat belt buckle and found one on ebay that suited my needs.

As the seller states, the one he sells is better quality and thicker than the competition. It's also the same size as the Renegade. The plastic is pretty decent and the metal buckle is thick and strong. It clips into the Renegade buckle firmly and the Renegade's buckle sticks into it firmly. The is very little play between all of the connection. Everything locks and clicks in place very well.

It does stick out quite a bit, but once I had it on and have been using it, it feels fine. It doesn't look too bad either because the stock buckle sits in pretty deep into the seat.

This is the one I purchased. Compare it to the other auctions if you like, but I found this one to be the size of the Renegades and of better quality and thickness. The auction is for 1. So you have to buy 2 if you want one for the passenger seat.

Here it is installed in the Renegade.

I use this for when I moving the car very short distances and I don't want to put my seat belt on or hear the chime. Like moving parking spots or checking the mailbox around the corner (yes, I'm that lazy). I also use it for when I offroad and need to stick my head out the widow or sit up higher/forward to check my wheel placement. I always wear my seat belt otherwise. It's become habit and second nature when I get in the car.

I was looking at the eliminators that looked like the male end but doesn't have the belt on them. But I would have to take it out to use the regular seat belt every time. I would have to keep it close, within reach so that I can readily swap between the two. With this style of eliminator, I can leave it in and never have to take it out. I wasn't keen on the looks before buying it, but now that I have it and used it, I don't even think about how it looks.

so what is the problem to fasten your belts honey? ... i am used to click on since 1981 and its automatic ... sit in ... click ... start the engine and drive

Your insurance will not pay for injuries with this crap in the car ... you manipulate savety parts because you have no time to click?

her you can see what really happens when coming to a complete stop at speds about 18 mph <> 30 km/h
this happens in a training slide which produces the impact at about 10 km/h for free tests at police stations over here ... if you have the chance to sit in something like this ... do it
