Jeep Liberty: Lap/Shoulder Belts - Occupant Restraints - Things To Know Before Starting Your Vehicle - Jeep Liberty Owner's ManualJeep Liberty: Lap/Shoulder Belts

All seating positions in your vehicle are equipped with lap/shoulder belts. The belt webbing retractor is designed to lock during very sudden stops or accidents.

This feature allows the shoulder part of the belt to move freely with you under normal conditions. However, in an accident, the belt will lock and reduce your risk of striking the inside of the vehicle or being thrown out.

WARNING!
• It is dangerous to ride in a cargo area, inside or outside of a vehicle. In an accident, people riding in these areas are more likely to be seriously injured or killed.

• Do not allow people to ride in any area of your vehicle that is not equipped with seats and seat belts.

• Be sure everyone in your vehicle is in a seat and using a seat belt properly.

• Wearing a seat belt incorrectly is dangerous. Seat belts are designed to go around the large bones of your body. These are the strongest parts of your body and can take the forces of an accident the best.

• Wearing your belt in the wrong place could make your injuries in an accident much worse. You might suffer internal injuries, or you could even slide out of part of the belt. Follow these instructions to wear your seat belt safely and to keep your passengers safe, too.

• Two people should never be belted into a single seat belt. People belted together can crash into one another in an accident, hurting one another badly.

Never use a lap/shoulder belt or a lap belt for more than one person, no matter what their size.
