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.
