Seat belt Hooks ?

Recommended Posts

My 71 Z is coming along but I need the plastic hooks that you hang the (non-retracable in 71) seat belts on when not in use.

Anybody have any? Or any suggestions on where (or how) I can get them?

Thanks in advance.

Are they the same at the Series 2 cars? If so I may have a set.

I don't know what "series 2" cars are.

These are plastic hooks with a single screw hole that mounts then to the inside of the car below the small side window. You hang the belts on them.

I thought I would find something I could use at Home Depot but no luck.

My car is a 71 240, what hooks do you have? What are they from?

I appreciate your response.

Soi disant "Series 1" cars include both 1970 and early '71 models, through about 1/71 build dates. "Series 2" cars (aka "late '71") are the remaining '71s. For Series 1, the hooks were actually mounted on the seat back, not the rear quarter panel. So it sounds like you have a Series 2. I may also have one or two left in my stash of misc. plastic parts. I'll look tomorrow.

Yeah, us puter nerds used to be that way in college, but we started taking showers... (just kidding ;) )

As an aside, is there something like a clamp, that will prevent the belt from retracting? Sometimes you want to put it on without having to pull it out so slowly, like on a rally, where every second counts.

My Z is a 71 and the belts didn't retract. There was a little hook and you had to hang them up when not in use.

If anyone has another of the items OP is requesting, I'm looking for one as well. I feel bad for my passengers right now because the belt is at a bad angle for many of them.

Mine's a 73 but by the sound of it, it should be the same device in both cars.

Thanks!
