Rated 5 out of 5 by NNS1 A Must-Have! Excellent product & value!
A must-have for any vehicle that carries people other than slim adult males!
I can't imagine why cars, trucks, etc., are let out of the factory without devices like this on Every Shoulder-Strap/Lap-Belt combo.
It's just neither Safe nor Comfortable for Anyone who has a different size/shape chest or tummy to drive or ride without something to allow an adjustment to be made to the attachment angle & length of their Seat Belt.
The whole point of the Seat Belt combo is so that the forces of a sudden stop are routed across the hips (pelvis bone) and across the chest, to stop the body from flying out through the windshield or side window.
Normal combo configurations worn by women, children, & large-gut guys usually end up cutting across the waist (to the spine - little stopping power before bone) and into the neck.
With this Seat Belt Adjuster, the shoulder strap is hooked to the lap belt "outboard" of the buckle, allowing the driver/passenger to adjust the combo to better fit the wearer's body - for comfort & for correct deployment of the stopping power. (Of course, the wearer (or parent) has to adjust the adjuster so that the lap belt actually lies across the hips/lap, not across the waist).
Also, while you have to pay attention to just where the lap strap fits into this adjuster, once it's in place it's easy to slide it along the lap belt for a good fit to the shoulder strap, so the wearer is both safe & comfortable. Be sure to refer to the diagram on the package. The shoulder strap can be unhooked from the lap belt as needed, but the adjuster stays attached to the lap belt for any future needs.
Most cars have 2 seats in the front and 2 in the back with shoulder straps. Being able to buy 2 adjusters at one time is convenient & economical!

Who knew something so simple could fix a frustrating problem? We know longer have the seat belt threatening our jugular vein without sacrificing the important job of that strap across our body. AND you get 2 for $4.99. Yep, gonna share this on Facebook.

Rated 5 out of 5 by TexasTink Vital, prevents choking
I have been using this brand for at least 20 years! Very sturdy, my last one lasted years maybe longer so long it's hard to remember. I am 5'5" & the belts always crawl up across my neck. This lets me adjust it where it doesn't choke me. So used to it I even travel with one to use in rentals cars.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MsMisty Makes wearing a seatbelt comfortable
I have these in all of our vehicles. I dislike having a seatbelt trying to choke me. These allow you to position the seatbelt in the optimal position for comfort and effect. It literal takes a few seconds to snap on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Driver098 Great seatbelt adjusters
I have been using these for years. I'm short and the seatbelt always rub on my neck, but these seatbelt adjusters do the job. They last for a long time. They snap well and stay in place. I have tried others and they didn't hold as well. I would recommend these to everyone.
