Adjust the backrest so that the shoulder belt passes over the center of your shoulder and is positioned on your upper body.
Grasp the seat belt by the belt latch and pull it slowly and evenly over your chest and lap.
The seat belt may lock if the vehicle is at an angle or the seat belt is pulled out suddenly.
The seat belt can also lock when accelerating or decelerating, when negotiating bends or on inclines.
Insert the belt latch into the corresponding belt buckle on the inside of the seat until it engages audibly (Fig. 191).
Make sure that the seat belt is not trapped or twisted and that it is not rubbing against sharp edges.
Check that the horizontal section of the belt always fits snugly across your pelvis.
Therefore, after fastening the seat belt, always pull the diagonal part of the belt upwards.
For pregnant women: Position the lap belt so that it is as far down on the lap as possible and not pressing against the abdomen.
Pull on the diagonal section of the belt now and again during the journey to ensure that the horizontal section remains tight.
