Rear Seat Belts Locked

I took my rear seat belt off the roll bar to install a new rall bar pad. When i went to reinstall the seat belts they are locked in place. They will not release to let out additional belt to allow for installation. I figure their must be a way to release the locking mechanism, but I can't find it. Both siedes are like this.

The retractor mechanism has to be PERFECTLY vertical to unlock. Hold it in the exact orientation it would be in if properly hung, let the belt go slack, and slowly pull tension in it. It should let go.

I believe they are overly sensitive to tipping because Chrysler knew these things may be rolling with nothing (or cloth) between passengers and the ground. The belts are all that would keep people inside if you rolled it with no top on.

There is a ball inside of the retractor and if its not perfectly still and level it will stay locked just like C.L. said
