No more seat belt flappin

The seat belt flappin was driving me crazy so I had to come up with some kind of solution. Was sick of leaning towards the door while driving to stop and keep the flap flap flap from annoying me. Went to wal-mart and picked up 2 seat belt comforters for $3 each and solved my problem. One for driver and one for passenger side. Works well and no more annoying flappin..

They do work great certainly one of the most bang for the buck mods as that flapping sure was annoying.

I went even a cheaper route than the Walmart one. I had a section of the foam pipe insulation and cut 4 four inch lengths. Works well. Cost was zero but to buy a 3 lot length would be less than $3 last I looked.

I ordered a set of these with my covers. They were a lot bigger than I thought they would be but I like them.

I've also found the Walmart pad works great. Someday I need to get a black one.

Nice. I like the color option. But I have a question before I order them. I have a Dozer JKU. I know it's close to "School Bus Yellow" but what are the chances it's exactly the same? Just don't want the colors to clash and be out $25.

The Wal-Mart "Custom Accessories" ones you got there are amazing at stopping the flapping. They are nice because you put them on there and don't every have to worry about them, and they don't restrict the belt from spooling (like a brand from auto-zone). I thought I was going to need to use a bungee higher up but these totally do the trick. It's one of the best cheap mods I have done.

You can order swatches of their colors, I wasn't sure which color matched the Mango Tango, ordered 2 different numbers and they sent them free of charge to me. #91 matches Mango Tango Tango perfectly

Great, just ordered 3 swatches that look close to Dozer. My guess is "School Bus Yellow (#218)" will win -__-

I pulled up next to a school bus the other day and my friend actually got out and looked very close at my jeep then at the bus... they're damn near similar in the sun.

I use them on my rear belts too and now they don't flap either. But my rear seat is out so my aerodynamics might be different. And the pads aren't looped the same way in the back. I sort of tie the seat belt to itself with the comfort pad on the rear belts.
