Ford Escape: Front safety belt pretensioners - Personal Safety System™ - Seating and Safety Restraints - Ford Escape Owner's ManualFord Escape: Front safety belt pretensioners

The safety belt pretensioners at the front outboard seating positions are designed to tighten the safety belts firmly against the occupant’s body during frontal collisions, and in side collisions and rollovers. This helps increase the effectiveness of the safety belts. In frontal collisions, the safety belt pretensioners can be activated alone or, if the collision is of sufficient severity, together with the front airbags.
