    Anyone know of or use a seat belt extender in the crown vic? My new holster for weaponlight hits the top of the latch and i cannot buckle my seatbelt anymore, just wondering if anybody had experience with extenders. Thanks in advance.

    I've heard, don't know for sure, that the Ford Dealerships will give one to you.

    I don't know why they just don't make the latch higher. Always is hard to buckle up.

    I have one in mine, free from the local dealership. It is awesome, adds about 6" so you buckle or unbuckle in front of your holster. I don't think I could live without it now.

    Why did Ford put the seatbelt latch inside the damn seat?

    We're not allowed to use the extenders because (so they say) that it makes the seatbelt less effective....go figure, now, many dont wear their belts because the seatbelt is almost impossible to latch into the damn in-seat seatbelt latch.

    I would challenge them with information from the manufacturer which states otherwise. Whomever came up with that hairbrained idea should be ballpunched nightly.

    You can get them free from any Ford dealer. They are required to provide them free upon request.

    And if you are "not allowed" I would just keep it in your war bag and remember to take it off if your in a wreck and still conscious afterward. :supergrin:
     
  9. Some of our guys utilize them in their 2008 Expeditions and 2011 Tahoes...No complaints so far...

    Some guys at out dept. wear them to stop the seat belt chime. That will open up a can of worms, but to each their own. I jumped in a car that had one and liked it. Never got the ambition to go get one but they did make it more comfortable. Every little bit helps.

    We made everyone get rid of them because folks were buckling the seat belt to the extender behind their back so the black box would register that the seatbelt was buckled and they could still drive around with their seatbelt off.

    I find it amazing that some of these old heads still wont wear a seatbelt.

    That's retarded admin thinking. Punish everyone, and make some people less safe, because some idiots refuse to obey a current policy.

    Some get that attitude from the military. But, in this case it is very bad thinking. You have someone who cannot wear a seat belt because of physical and equipment issues, which means that there are grounds for a lawsuit.

    Yes, but not uncommon. Same thinking that caused DAO revolvers, plastic body Streamlights, etc.

    One agency near me made everyone get rid of their coaxial weaponlights because one guys used his pistol to direct traffic at an extra job after his flashlight batteries died.

  18. We had a call for a known EDP with some sort of self-inflicted head injury in a crappy apartment complex. As I was walking up the hallway the patient was sitting on the floor crying. The obnoxious female officer standing over him decided it would be a good idea to unholster her G22 and use the attached TLR-1 to get a better view of the laceration on the back of his head... :brickwall:
     
  19. I hope that is former officer. Was this in the projects?
