Never place anything between you and the seat belt in an attempt to cushion the impact in the event of an accident. It can be dangerous and reduce the effectiveness of the seat belt in preventing injury.

Misadjustment of the seat belt could reduce its effectiveness in a crash. Always ensure that the anchorage is correctly located and properly locked in one of the height positions before driving and DO NOT adjust the height once the vehicle is in motion.
