Flapping Seatbelts

I love driving my Jeep with the top down. When I do however, I can hear the rear seatbelts flapping a ton. Not only is this REALY annoying while driving, i worry that it may damage the belts in some way. Aside from taking them off, has anyone found a way to keep them from flaping like that?

I picked up some adhesive Velcro and stuck the two sticky sides together so that I could wrap them around the seatbelt and the rollbar. This allows me to easily adjust them when needed.

I got some elastic straps with velcro on them from my local outdoor store. They're made for securing bundles of climbing ropes. They're 2" wide and work perfectly for keeping those seatbelts from flapping. I keep them on all the time and now I don't have to listen to my seatbelts as I'm tooling down the road. Oh, they were only around $8, so they're cheap.

Simple, I permanently removed my rear seat and rear seat belts. But about that ball gag...

ok well i use my rear seat often with top down and doors off... if u put a bungee cord will it effect the usage of pulling the seatbelt.. whats best way to strap em from flapping but still be able to use the seat belts normally.. it doesnt bother me im the driver but id like to be a little more courteous to my rear seat passengers since there already taking a beating with the wind

I just buckled my rear seat belts into the seat. Seems to be enough tension on the belts to stop the flapping so far.
