Adjusting Upper Shoulder Belt

As a guide, if you are shorter than average you will prefer a lower position, and if you are taller than average you will prefer a higher position. When you release the anchorage, try to move it up or down to make sure that it is locked in position.

Center Lap Belts

The center seating position for the Quad Cab, Mega Cab and Crew Cab front seat has a lap belt only. To fasten the lap belt, slide the latch plate into the buckle until you hear a "click". To lengthen the lap belt, tilt the latch plate and pull. To remove slack, pull the loose end of the webbing. Wear the lap belt snug against the hips.

Sit back and erect in the seat, then adjust the belt as tightly as is comfortable.


  • A lap belt worn too loose or too high is dangerous.
  • A belt worn too loose can allow you to slip down and under the belt in a collision.
  • A belt that is too loose or too high will apply crash forces to the abdomen, not to the stronger hip bones. In either case, the risk of internal injuries is greater. Wear a lap belt low and snug.
