Do most of you have seat belts for your passengers?

I sure do not have one Exclamation I would not want to be straped in if things went wrong. Stop and think about it.

I don't have seat belts either but have been asked by people who have never ridden in one if I have them. Just wanted to know. Thanks.

I have seat belts in mine, originally they held in Jacob's (number 2 son) child seat.

I think they are good for smaller kids or others physically unable to hold themselves in place, but not sure they would do much in a crash.

The seat I built for my rig is from a pattern we use for sprint car seats minus the right hand bracing so is very form fitting. Passengers do not slide around in turns and all say "More turns, please" but if I ever decide to put a roll bar on the 'car I will put in belts so overturning would be survivable, for a rider.

a friend of mine designed and installed an adjustable bar like you find in a roller coaster. It works real well for kids or adults. They can hold on to it and it holds them in the car but is easy to adjust and easy to release.

just email them to me and I'll post them for you. They just have to be stored on line somewhere then you post them here. I'll host them and send you the link to post them.
