The Komfort Latch

Gen 2

IMG_1031Professional drivers and operators will appreciate the next generation of Komfort Latch®, which offers a break-through in seat belt comfort and convenience by simplifying the process of safely relieving seat belt tension for operators and drivers. In normal driving conditions with the Komfort Latch engaged, the seat belt is allowed to extend/retract 5 to 7 inches, allowing the
driver to lean forward, make full steering wheel rotations and check their side mirrors, all without releasing the Komfort Latch

The Komfort Latch Gen 2® simplifies the process of safely relieving seat belt tension. Here’s how it works.

  1. Adjust your seat to its proper driving position.
  2. Latch your seat belt. Just Click, Tug & Snug.
  3. If available, adjust the seat belt height adjuster to a comfortable driving position.
  4. While seated appropriately, push the “on” button to engage the Komfort Latch.
  5. Lean forward in your seat until you hear a “click.”
  6. Return to normal driving position, and the Komfort Latch maintains the preset amount of tension relief.

IMPORTANT: Be sure that you don’t introduce extra slack when using the Komfort Latch. Using the seat belt with too much slack can reduce its effectiveness during a crash. If the vehicle experiences a sudden deceleration while the Komfort Latch is in use, the device will allow the retractor to fully lock the belt.

Disengaging the Komfort Latch Gen 2:

  1. Unbuckle the seat belt.
  2. Press the “off” button on the Komfort Latch – OR – tug on the upper torso portion of the seat belt.


Komfort Latch Gen 1

Gen 1

The Komfort Latch Gen 1® reduces seat belt tension so the belt doesn’t rub your shoulder or neck while you’re driving. Here’s how it works:

  1. Adjust the seat to its proper driving position.
  2. Latch your seat belt. Click, Tug & Snug.
  3. If available, adjust the seat belt height adjuster to a comfortable driving position.
  4. Pull approximately one inch of webbing from your chest. (This is equivalent to placing two fingers between the chest and belt while leaning back in the seat.)
  5. Lift the Komfort Latch lever to lock the webbing.

IMPORTANT: Be sure that you don’t introduce more than an inch of slack when using the Komfort Latch. Using the seat belt with too much slack can reduce its effectiveness during a crash.

Disengaging the Komfort Latch Gen 1:

  1. Tug on the shoulder belt or pull down the Komfort Latch lever.
