Product description

An aftermarket seat belt buckle that may have been fitted as a replacement part during vehicle repair.

What are the defects?

The seat belt may separate from the anchor that holds the buckle to the seat.

What are the hazards?

The seat belt may not properly restrain an occupant, increasing the risk of serious injury or death in the event of an accident.

What should consumers do?

Consumers should stop using the seat belt and contact the mechanic that installed it to organise for a replacement to be fitted. If the driver's seat belt is affected, the mechanic will offer to arrange for the vehicle to either be towed to the place of replacement or for a mobile technician to be sent to the vehicle (or similar arrangement), so that the vehicle does not have to be driven to receive a replacement.
For more information, consumers can contact Hemco Industries on 1300 065 057 or sales@hemco.com.au
