How To Stop Seatbelts Flapping When Naked?

I am new to my jeep and took the doors off for the first time today. I noticed at about 30 mph that the Seatbelts were flapping and making a racket. What is the best way to prevent this?

I used one of those shoulder pads you normally put up top. I attached it down at the bottom of the seat belt between the body and seat. Walmart like 4 bucks.

I got 2 sets of these. Amazon.com: Jeep Seat Belt Cover Shoulder Pad Cushion (2 pcs): Automotive Next, I glued velcro to the back of them and stuck the other piece for the velcro on the hard plastic by each belt.

^^^^^^Works like a charm. Today was the first time I've had my top and doors off and while riding around I thought about these shoulder pads. You absolutely will forget about them. Best, cheapest and most useful mod you can do.

They velcro to themselves and just wrap around the seat belt.
You put it where the flapping is happening.

I found that putting the seat belt pads around the seat belts on the lower section where the belts flap against the plastic (where the door meats the door frame post) didn't work for me. So what I did on drivers side & passagener side, cut one sholder pad in half & super glue them to the plastic. Soft side to the seat. It stop the noice of the seat blet flapping.
However, having sypder web shade, I found that the 2 grumets (2 door Jeep) would hit the sound bar driving me crazy. I purchased pipe insulation & used 2 bundgy cords to hold the pipe insulation in place. Thus stopping the sypder web shade from making contact with the sound bar center section.

This is how I fixed mine. Got the bandanas from amazon on the low. Plus they match . The shoulder straps I got from the DG I believe.

I forgot mine ever flapped. I loosened the plastic trim and put the seat belts inside the trim instead over it. They work like normal but don't flap.

I also did the cheap Walmart fix for mine. I always do overkill, so I bought 4 and put two on each front seat belt. The black fuzzy seat belt comforters blend in really well with the interior. Took top and doors off today and zero flapping!!

Cool. I love free mods. And I hate those fuzzy seatbelt covers, so it works out perfectly for me.

Although this may or may not effect how the seat belt works, if your ever in an accident and your or the other guys insurance ever wants to find a reason not to pay a claim for medical...

This would be a reason for them to NOT pay a claim. You altered the seat belt beyond the design.

Trust me...the insurance investigator will spot this and get all warm and fuzzy.

Really? Have you looked at your seatbelt and how the trim piece attaches? You can hypothesize all you want but if that day ever comes I'll get a good lawyer. The seatbelt mechanism is not modified.

You could argue that those seatbelt shoulder pads placed incorrectly on the lower part of the seatbelt alters how a seatbelt works also, I suppose. Good Grief, Charlie Brown.

It would be on YOU to prove it didnt effect the seat belt and its operation.

The pads either on the bottom or top would be a bigger stretch to say it effected the operation of the seat belt.

The belt being tucked behind the B pillar trim even looks wrong...so...its easier to have a reasonalble doubt its effecting the operation.

But, do as you like...I ma not saying not to do it. But I have been around the block with insurance companies and modifed street trucks and people who have had accidents in them who fought for years over injuries.

Insurance companies make money when they dont pay out....the can afford the best lawyers. They can run you around til you cant afford to defend yourself anymore.

I used a zip tie and zip-tied the seat belt to the roll bar. That worked for me

It wasn't as much fun and the seat belt still flapped.
