HI all,

How is this installed? This is the 2-piece black plastic button that prevents the seat belts from retracting too deep. The original one went missing so I bought a new replacement. It seems like this thing needs a special crimping tool. Anyone know another way to crimp this using home tools? Is the sharp pointed part made of plastic or metai?

Thanks!

A hot piece of metal (like a soldering iron) to melt/press it down to form sort of a rivet head. You don't have to get it very hot to make it malleable enough to press it down into shape.

Thanks. So the sharp pointed part is actually plastic and not metal like a thumb tack? I've seen some YouTube videos using a cut-off soldering iron or a small nail head heated hot enough to melt down the sharp point. I'll give this a try.
