Right.... time for another gadget !!!
Whilst browsing the exhibition stands at Clarksons MPH on Friday last week, I came across this little gadget from CG Lock
Now, I dont normally get that interested in little stands at exhibitions, but this one got me.... and this is the reason....
Years ago I used to own a car with bucket seats and four point rally harnesses. If you've ever been strapped in a car with rally harnesses you will know how secure you feel, compared to a normal seat belt.
The problem with rally harnesses, is they look 'chav' and its difficult to fit them with the rear seats still in place.
What CG Lock have done, is invent a little gadget that turns your existing seatbelts (drivers and passengers) into a 2 point rally harness which effectively allows you to lock your normal seatbelt into place gripping you into your seat. The technology has come from the aerospace sector for pilots harnesses (not that I intent to do a 4G negative dive in my car... but it could happen )
I fitted them onto the VXRD before the Christmas bash last weekend and gave a demo to some members. I really quite like it and they were relatively easy to fit as well. It can also be used to secure baby seats that use the seatbelt into the back as well..
Although it is a perminent fixture in the car... it can be disassembled and leave no trace that it was in the car. Just two allen key screws clamp it to your existing seatbelt buckle.... You can pay extra and get an 'instructors' model, which is fully transferable from vehicle to vehicle at a moments notice...
It will definately get used all the time.
