Same here. I think I’m subconsciously learning to manage it so it doesn’t twist.

…even with it in the loop I find it sits higher than it should and sometimes the edge irritates neck.
For reference I'm 5'9 and have the seat height set Low but not to the bottom
It irritates my neck as well.

Photos of the problem.

Pic 1, what the seatbelt naturally wants to do (be twisted)


Pic 2, what you have to manually do to untwist the seatbelt

I've been thinking that the strap loop is too loose. It needs to hold the seatbelt down closer to the seat so once you untwist it, it can't twist back.

Looking again at your pic and comparing, it looks like our belts are trying to twist opposite ways..
What is this sorcery???
A bad design! :LOL:

Is the label on your seatbelt - at the floor anchor - pointed outward like mine?

The belt naturally has a twist in it, just put it at the bottom and they function properly. It has to have a twist somewhere because it’s a flat object anchored to points at different angles. The belt should have one like half twist at the bottom, the belt will stay relatively flat everywhere else.


As long as your belt sits like this, it will track perfectly flat your your body when pulled over.

🤷‍♂️ Sorry I just didn’t think a seatbelt needed 30 replies to figure out lol.
Just kidding around with you! It's worth a shot! (y)
