Seat belts

Looking for replacement three-point seatbelts for a 105 GTV with factory anchor holes. Any recommendations?

Thanks all.

If you're looking for static belts, then my favourite period belts are Kangol Magnet. I've had them in three Alfas, and have just bought an almost NOS set for the front of my Ti Super rep.

The early ones have lovely aluminium clasps, not plastic like the later ones in the pic., but they are extremely hard to find now. Even so, the plastic ones are good too, and work just as well.

Use the Search function... there's lots of discussion on this topic... Eriminas, Securon and Wesco are popular choices for three point inertia reel replacements to the OEM belts.

After reading threads where a few GTV owners went with Wesco belts I ordered a pair; the version with the retractors mounted above the rear ashtrays. I can't recommend these. Problem is that there's not enough take-up on the retractor spools so I've got excess belt material hanging loosely between the retractor and the floor. Called Wesco asking about a solution and was immediately told that the installation must be incorrect (it doesn't seem so). Gotta say they didn't seem to take the concern seriously. Note also that the plastic support sleeves that mount between the seats feels cheap, as does the thin webbing material. Rather than having the belts shortened to get rid of the slack I'll probably try the Securon's which seem to get good reviews.
On the plus side the chrome aircraft style buckles are good.

I've used the Wesco belts on my GTV and they work perfectly. I would suggest either a fault in the retractor mechanism or as Wesco have indicated, an installation problem.
