What is the difference between seatbelts made in China verses belts made in the USA? One of the main reasons that Chinese products are so appealing is the price, but when you buy from Seatbelt Solutions, there is no price difference between American made and Chinese belts. Most Chinese made belts do not meet FMVSS 209/302, and the colors and thread don’t even match. The fact is that manufacturers overseas really don’t understand the FMVSS requirements like manufacturers in the USA do. For example, some of the belts that are sold from China say “DOT Approved.” The Department of Transportation (DOT) regulates tire manufacturing, not seatbelts. We know that the Chinese are good at manufacturing radios, TVs, and clothing. However, when it comes to purchasing seatbelts, you should purchase from an American manufacturer who understands FMVSS and knows and can prove they are making and selling a safe seatbelt. So, I would ask you, why run the risk?
