Default Seat belt extenders

Just installed some universal seat belt extenders. I'm a big guy (way too big around) and the seat belt/shoulder harness was too tight to wear comfortably. I bought an extender on eBay that had a buckle and "tongue" on it, but it didn't work with the original equipment. I returned it and got the "universal" extender that bolts to the wall and then to the anchor end of the strap. It works, but I had to drill out the hole a little to fit the torx bolt through it. I also had to buy a T50 torx bit to remove the anchor bolt and put it back in.

Anyway, I'm glad I can buckle up again, finally. Air bags will only help so much, especially in a convertible, I imagine.

Any of you have seat belt extender stories?

If you had been in an accident with the seatbelts not buckled, the airbags would not have gone off in the first place.

Congrats, though! I'm glad you can buckle up and be safe!
