Seatbelt Guide

Just received this today through ebay. Simple and works well if a little pricey.

As I recall, that was a forum member who generated the design and decided to make some $$ from his 3D printer. He did some other bits and pieces too.

Not sure if he's still around

Yeah, I still have mine, too. Richer looking? Mine are just plain, unpolished large gauge steel wire, bent, unfinished. They look like crap. They did hold the belts quite well, mostly because of the very weak retractors.

I was always a bit put off by their appearance, they were not even close to the standards of the other stuff from Kappasphere.

And I am opposite in thinking. I only bought mine because I thought it provided a unique appearance. How different how we view it.

I bet if u put it up for sale...it would be gone. Remember, they no longer are being produced.

They are...it is what it be...LOL. I paid 50 for them.

By the way, Teresa and Doug will be sleeping over here tomorrow for Thanksgiving...I can truly say Betty Boop slept here.

I paid about the same, if memory serves. I always thought I got screwed on that purchase, never bought anything else from Kappasphere.

I was quite pleased with some of their products...the first thing was the metal up/down lock mechanism for the door (30.00)...much richer than the plastic. Then the Kappajacket(cannot recall price)...but the best was their passenger side mirror. It was concave. You could not find any aftermarket mirror to fit the sunvisor. I actually won 2. Remember when they had a photo contest each month....I WON. LOL

Not really...the metal in back goes into the jacket in the rear of the seat. It is invisible.
