Another Innovative Product From Kappasphere! [seat belt-X-tender]

Introducing the belt-X-tender

Having trouble reaching your seat belt?

The window switches aren't the only thing in this car built for a contortionist! If you have trouble reaching the seat belt that keeps slipping behind your seat, you are not the only one! So we designed this nifty little contraption to solve your seat belt woes.

The belt-X-tender requires NO interior modifications. It can be installed and removed in seconds! And while it utilizes the seat storage pocket, it's simple design allows you to continue to use the majority of the pocket space for your storage needs.

Each kit comes with passenger and driver side pieces.

I just received their chromies today, and they are a quality product. Very heavy. I am confident that they won't be "bent coat hangers."

VIN# 8902 Arrived 9 Feb 06
Deep, loaded. No smokers/XM/Onstar

I noticed the banner first. I had no clue how you were going to pull it off.

My mother's Solara has little extendable 'arms' and that's what I thought you guys were going to do, but I figured it would require modding. I'm shocked that you (once again) came up with an alter-free solution.

Bravo.

It would definitely be nice to see if you guys could perhaps black powder coat these for the ebony cloth and leather interiors to make them sort of blend in.

Otherwise, right now they do look like a couple of bent coat hangers with their current color.

Keep up the great innovations!!

They canít be coat hangers they are not plastic. When was the last time you saw metal coat hangers? Can you even buy metal coat hanger any more?

I have a suggestion:
Can you make it where the seatbelt doesn't rub against the seat, especially "leather" seats. I happen to own a firebird and with the years of buckling and unbuckling, the nylon part left a nasty mark on them.

I just notice this same problem happening on the Sol.

By the way, awesome idea!

Coat hanger, shirt hanger, whatever. You know what I mean. Pick up shirts from a dry cleaner and you'll find metal hangers.

I like a lot of Kappasphere's products and will be ordering some soon. Lil Chromies for sure. Wish they'd make some nice polished aluminum door sills.

I have the reverse problem--I am having trouble unbuckling the seat belt when I want to get out. Maybe it is because I have some arthritis on my hands but I have broken four fake thumb nails trying to unbuckle the belt. Now I keep a small flash light key holder in the boot of the shift that is just right to put down to unbuckle the belt --any other solutions????
