The E-mark certificate number on extenders is based on and issued for three-point seat belts in the absence of seat belt extender-specific standards.
7. Do not use seat belt extenders in a fashion for which they are not intended. User agrees that use of the seat belt extender is at their own risk. Do not use the seat belt extender unless it is physically required in order to wear the vehicle’s safety belt as required by each User’s country, state, region and/or local municipality. Never use the extender if it releases on either side without depressing the receptacles’ release button on the extender or the seat belt. Test all functionality thoroughly before each use.

Do not use the extender to connect the seat belts of two different seats. Never use an extender that adds more length than the minimum additional length necessary to buckle up where it is otherwise physically impossible. Extenders are not for use with child restraints such as booster seats and car seats or children under a certain weight and size (see your vehicle manufacturer’s manual, child restraint manual, and all applicable laws). Extenders are not for use by those who are pregnant. Do not let others install or use the seat belt extender in any vehicle. The extender should never be resold.

8. No extender is ever guaranteed to click, securely latch, fit or work in or with any seat belt in or with any vehicle, regardless of how the extender was purchased or obtained. This includes but is not limited to, among all other purchase or acquisition methods, extenders acquired based on vehicle-specific details of a vehicle such as make, model, year and/or seat or suggestions by SBEP.

User is solely responsible for determining whether the extender, as an after-market product, is the proper fit, securely latched, or should be used at all, including compliance with all relevant motor safety regulations, vehicle manufacturer instructions, and your vehicle’s manual. User agrees to be solely responsible for any related consequences, damages or losses that may result from the use of the extender. User agrees that no methods, means or suggestions offered anywhere, including but not limited to any website, blog, written materials of, by or from SBEP, of determining potential fitment, security or correctness of a seat belt extender is a sufficient or exhaustive means of determining a secure latch, click, or fit and cannot be relied upon in any way.

11. Do not modify or alter extenders or a vehicle’s seat belt in any way. Do not use an extender with any other products or devices that alter any part of or the entire seat belt assembly and/or seat belt extender configuration.
