Well mine is still getting twisted even after spinning the strap around.

I threw a zip tie on the strap to test out what sewing the strap to itself would do. I have a feeling this should do the trick (not the zip tie but sewing it) as theres hardly any room to allow it to twist now. I'll give it a week or so and report back.

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 across 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)

Okay but it still twists like this. You've just described how they come stock, which is exactly how they ended up twisting for those posting. Also theres no way to "put" the twist at the bottom as you cant slip the twist past the buckle (I just tried). Notice that yours has a twist at the top as well as the bottom, the twist starts up top at the seatbelt loop/guide on the seat.

That wasn’t my car lol I just found that pic. I have had no issues whatsoever with my seatbelt. It is comfortable and works as intended. Maybe my driving position allows the seatbelt to work a certain way and at a certain angle.

It could also have something to do with how its pulled possibly. Its not an actual issue just a minor annoyance every once and a while. Mine may have only gotten twisted a handful of times but that doesnt stop me front wanting a remedy.
