Seatbelt issues

I got in the jeep after work today, sat down, started it, went to throw on my seatbelt and it was stuck, like when you yank too hard on it, it freezes up, except this time i was pulling a normal rate. I tried about 20 times with the same result, then i tried pulling EXTREMELY slow, and it came out all the way for me to get buckled, any one know whats up with that??

My YJ does this every once and awhile just tap the retractor a few times and it should get back on track for you it's like it rolls it self up a little off track and needs a little love tap

When I was installing new belts I had the same thing happen..what I discovered was that it was the "angle" that I was pulling it... try changing the angle and see if it helps..
