    Hi,

    Just looking on Flyin' Miata (as you do) I noticed a product called CG-Lock. Its a device that holds the lap part of the belt tight on you. Apparently making it more similar to using a 4,5 or 6 point belt. Just wondered whether anyone else heard of it before.

    Yup, they come highly recommended. Not a subsitute for a full harness but a decent compromise.

    Well I suppose it means you don't have to get a roll cage so your car can be much more stock. Do you perchance use one?

    Bear in mind this is the same country that believes you don't have to wear seatbelts if you have airbags.

    Well normally the lap belt isn't locked under tension to the buckle.

    If the charge was powerful enough to tighten the belt too much, it'd squish your insides even without the CG-Lock.

    If you read the website, its been fully tested and found to be safe.

    Nope, I'm holding out for a set of full harnesses, but that may be some time away, I think once I have sorted the handling and maybe power, but that is some way down the line.

    The guys at BM3W raved about these IIRC, not tried one myself though.

    not that you'd be fitting a harnesses unless you have a roll cage fitted, yeah?
