Safety belts are proven lifesavers. Don't cut corners - replace old or worn belts, or retro fit them to the rear of your van. Made in the UK by Securon, main belt length of this kit is 265cm and it comes supplied with a 30cm strap and buckle. The extra length makes it a lot easier to fit a belt around a rock 'n' roll bed and is also useful if you are using a childseat or booster cushion in the rear of your camper. It fits VW T2 Splits from 1955 to 1967 and VW T2 Bays 1967 to 1979 Please Note Due to the various conversion available it may be necessary to fit alternative mounting points. We always recommend that seat belts are fitted by a qualified technician.

Please note that for safety reasons we are not able to assist with any warranties or returns for this item. Any questions or problems need to be addressed directly to the manufacturers on 01494 434455
Webbing length retractor to end bracket is 270cm. The stalk is 30cms long.
Includes bolts but you will need to make sure you have mounting plates in place or get some welded in.

  • Not long enough if you have furniture on one side of your van

    Before the review starts I would like to say that it is a bit difficult to rate this product as, although the belts are as well made as the other SECURON belts I have bought and installed they are just not going to work out of the box for me.

    My Dormobile camper, with factory fitted windows and factory fitted seat belt mounting points, has a full length furniture unit down the drivers side of the van. The bed is mounted at window level and the seat is raised to the same level to make the bed. So, technically speaking NOT a rock and roll bed. With the reel mounted under the seat the belt is at least 50 cm too short for a slim adult male of average height. This is with an extension on the securing clip.

    The existing SECURON 3 point belts with two belt extenders are JUST long enough to go round a forward facing child seat and more ample adults but the reels are mounted at the same height as the top of the double bed so get in the way when sleeping. I want to use these belts in another car hence the purchase of a pair of J12397s, which from the description, looked like they might be suitable.

    Other problems are at the belt touches the furniture unit on the way up to the shoulder mounting. Although the belt retracts OK it will lead to wear in the belt fabric as it brushes on the steel seat hinge mechanism at the top of the backrest.

    There is no way to fit these belts to my van without fabricating an additional mounting points, either like the ones fitted to some Swedish and Australian vans or say with a vertical bar from the existing should mounting point up to the top of the window frame. I have the necessary welding and engineering skills to do this although I had hoped to be able to avoid this. The belts should be plenty long enough if I do this.

    One other minor problem, I replaced the seat belt mounting point in the rear nearside wheel arch when I repaired rust damage in the wheel arch. I might have positioned this wrongly (too far to the side of the van) but the reel is too wide to fit on the nearside wheel arch. In any case mounting the reel here would foul the seat when in use.

    As far as I can see these are just standard 4 point seat belts with a reel that can be configured to work at different angles (as with the parcel shelf mounted 3 point belts). If you have a van with factory fitted seat belt mounting points then I think they are only suited for a full width 3 seat rock and roll bed where there is no furniture behind the rear seat on the rear deck and no furniture unit on the side of the van. Then only for the two outer seats.

    It would be helpful to have a picture on this product page showing a typical installation in a van with a rock and roll bed. Also useful if the seat belts are described as 4 point belts that can be used in 3 point mode, (as with SECURON front seat belts) rather than 3 point belts.

    JK Response

    Thank you for your review. Rear seat belts can be a bit of a problem due to the vast range of interiors available, The belts are designed to be fitted with the reels mounted just bellow the window, mounting these under the bed will lead to the belt being to short. When fitting seat belts to a Van there is always a compromise and it may be necessary to move mounting points or adjust furniture to allow free movement of the belts this is why we always recommend that seat belts are fitted by a qualified technician.
  • just worked fine

    I purchased this belt to replace a lap belt on the rock and roll bed in the back of my T2 to fit a child seat booster from a child bucket seat. My van (1976 Westfalia) has the higher secure point bolt hole in the mid rail just below the window so that was fine, what I didn’t know was would the inertia bit fit under the side of the rock and roll bed, and would it work at an angle – the answer is yes to both thanks to the fitting kit supplied. The device at the side of the belt allows it to be released at any angle and orientation so it would work on the 45degree angle under the seat and it also cleared the bed fitting. Taking the bed out and back in was a more of a task than I had thought – it would be good to have another person to help you out with this as it is rather heavy. So all in all, I am getting another one for the other side as ‘Child No 2’ will need a booster seat in about 12mths.

    • my t2 early bay has 3 mounting points for rear belts. it has a rock & roll bed. which point does the inertia reel bolt to, the one on the wheelarch or the one on the bottom rail of the window?
    • Answer: These are not the belts you would want to fit you need J10652. With that belt you would mount the reel below the window

    • where under the seat does the inertia reel fit on this? the fitting on my van is very flexible as it doesn't have any mounting points, so I'm going to have to weld in suitable mountings.
      my object is to have the finished installation as 'invisible as possible' and not to interfere with the full width rock n roll bed operation. Can you email me a pdf of the fitting instructions so I can make sure its OK before I buy.
    • Answer: As you say it is a generic seat belt so anchor points would have to be installed. The instructions are no help really I'm afraid They are generic ones they supply with all seat belts.

    • Hi, I would like to fit a 3 point seatbelt on the rear near side of my t25. This would be for the passenger sitting on the rock&roll bed seat. I believe there are retractable belts that can clip into
      two sockets, one on either side of your hips and that come through the gap in the seat/bed. Is this so, and which one of the belts that you have can I do this with? Thanks, Chris.
    • Answer: Hi Chris,

      Unfortunately, we do not list the seat belt you require on our website. Reimo manufacture a belt like the one you describe.
      I have asked our purchasing dept. for a price and lead time on this.
