Sport belts are not only interesting for tuners who like to push their cars to the limit. Even a normal vehicle can now be equipped with sport belts. But they only really make sense in combination with one Sport seat and in a vehicle that is sometimes chased over the racetrack. To attach a sports belt securely, a high-quality belt strut is necessary if the built-in Roll cage or the sports seats don't have one. The belt strut should be designed for the racing area and increase driver safety. The advantages of a tuning belt strut and what should be considered when buying, are explained below.
Tuning belt strut - what distinguishes it?
A tuning belt strut is specially designed for the racing area and, together with a sports belt, serves to protect the driver and front passenger in the event of an accident. Qualitative belt struts can be made of stainless steel, for example. Stainless steel is stable and is refined to be more durable and more resistant to environmental influences. A tuning belt strut, if properly installed, can hold the sports belt at a 10 to 15 degree angle to the shoulders. If the sports belt is outside the specified angular range, the driver is less able to free himself from the belt after an accident or may be injured because the protective effect is not optimal.
Where is the belt strut installed in the car?
The belt strut for the sports belt is usually mounted directly behind the front seats. The assembly can be carried out on the ex-works receptacles for the factory seat belt brackets when they are removed. But here it always depends on the vehicle. This variant is not possible across the board. It may also be the case that special receptacles have to be installed to attach the belt strut. The belt strut often gives the vehicle even a stiffer vehicle chassis since the strut is similar to one Domstrebe works. Which sport belts are suitable for the belt struts can be found in the manufacturer's descriptions. In tuning workshops as well as in tuning forums, further information on suitable belt struts is given.
Belt strut and sports belt bring a racing feeling
With a high-quality belt strut for a sports belt, the tuning can experience an enthusiastic racing feeling. Qualitative belt struts are powder-coated or otherwise refined and increase the rigidity of the vehicle chassis. The belt strut ensures correct and safe mounting of the racing belt. The belt struts for the sports belt can be installed without any cutting and welding work. It depends on the vehicle, the strut and the area of application. The articles are usually screwed together and, according to the manufacturer's instructions, can be installed behind the front seats.

What to look for when buying a belt strut?
