About Seatbelt Pretensioners

The seatbelt pre-tensioner tightens any slack in the seatbelt system in the first few milliseconds of a collision by using a tiny explosive charge. The charge drives a small piston which will automatically turn the spool which the belt is wrapped around and tighten it. When the full force of the collision impacts on the driver, they are securely held in place by the seatbelt. This will minimise injury and allow for the driver to be in the correct position for the driver’s airbag to inflate properly, thereby receiving maximum protection benefit.

The seatbelt pre-tensioner uses a similar sensor to that of the  airbag in detecting a rapid deceleration in the event of a collision or sudden stop and will deploy immediately. After any collision during which the seatbelt pre-tensioner has been activated, the whole unit must be replaced as the explosive charge within the unit will only operate once.

The seatbelt pre-tensioner is located to the right/left at the bottom of the door column and is attached to the chassis of the vehicle with steel anchor plates and bolts.

The seatbelt can be pulled out of the pre-tensioner normally when there is no load placed on it.

Saab trivia

  • Saab was the first car manufacturer to install heated driver's seats. That's because one of the Saab executives suffered from a bad back that was particularly painful on cold mornings.
  • The Saab 900 was built between 1978 and 1993 and is the best selling Saab ever. In that time, it sold a total of 980,817 cars, around half of which were the convertible model. They can still be seen on UK roads very regularly.
  • The world's first soft-top hybrid car was the Saab BioPower Hybrid Concept, and it premiered at the 2006 Stockholm Motor Show. The car ran off a combination of pure ethanol and electricity, and so is also the first hybrid to be 100% free of carbon emissions.
  • If you were buying yourself a Saab before 1952, you had the colour choices of green, green, and… green. It wasn't until 1952 that Saab started offering other colours for car buyers.
  • The Saab 92 was the first production car to put the petrol tank in between the rear wheels. They did this to improve driver safety, and it helped with balance too.
