Decent given limited product options

Just before buying these adjusters I'd picked up a pack made by Belkin.

I found both to be adequate and can't say either has an edge.

The Heininger actually stay attached to the belt between uses, which is a plus. But unsnapping them once properly attached can be tricky. When being used, these adjusters need to be slid to the side of a belt that is pulled tight and low across the lap...which is the proper way to use a belt anyway. If they aren't secured this way, they tend to excessively slide/move along the belt while in use if you happen to move much.

The Belkin have a more in-use secure fit, but slip right off the belt when not in use do to their 'open on both sides' design. Also, if you like to wear your belt a little more loosely, these are the better option.

Overall, I don't think there is an optimal product for adjusting seat belts out there to date, so this item is no better or worse than others.

What did you think of this review?
