Since retractor safety seat belts are one of the most critical safety mechanisms in our vehicles, it makes sense that we should know all about how they operate.
Retractor Safety Seat Belt with the retractor is the male portion of the seat belt where the actual seat belt webbing material feeds out of. The seat belt retractor is made up of a spring, some gears, a sensor, a pyrotechnic explosive device, and a mechanism that is engineered to also lock up when a crash or accident occurs.
The seat belt retractor is responsible for locking up in the case of a sudden stop. It is also connected to the airbag system in a vehicle. When an accident occurs, the gas charge that it is equipped with goes off. This is programmed in a vehicle’s SRS airbag module and goes off immediately upon the crash sensor detecting the collision.
Retractor Safety Seat Belt primary design is to keep an occupant away from the airbag and seated against he seat securely to avoid injuries caused by the airbag.
