Simpson Standard Latch & Link System Lap Belts
This Latch & Link System is the original military aircraft latch design that was adapted for motorsports years ago. It still performs with outstanding reliability and ease. Egress is simple, one flip of the latch arm and you're out! Latch components are drop forged alloy steel for strength and durability, and lap belts are made of standard 3" military spec webbing. The belt adjuster mechanisms include anti-slip springs as standard issue so you stay right where you are. Lap belts have rugged leather skirting attached behind the latch mechanism to provide extra comfort. This is Simpson's original racing system that was designed for maximum reliability and affordability.

Note: ''Pull-Up Adjusters'' and ''Pull-Down Adjusters'' indicate the direction that tightens the lap belt adjusters. For example, a ''Pull-Up Adjuster'' is always the best choice in a Dragster. It is much easier, and safer, to tighten your belts in an upward motion (towards the latch) rather than a downward motion (away from the latch) because of the limited space.
