A State-of-the-Art Restraint System that's S.M.A.R.T.
S.M.A.R.T. (Sensor Modulated Automatic Restraint Technology) represents the most advanced design in restraint systems today. The system features a unique 'thinking' electro-sensor which constantly monitors abnormal movement and force inside the vehicle while in motion. During normal driving conditions, the Autocontrol's sensor allows the inertia reel to 'relax', enabling occupants to move more comfortably and freely in their harnessbelts. But, if the electro-sensor detects rapid acceleration or deceleration, a high G-force turn, quick side movement or inclines over 25 degrees, it will INSTANTLY lock the inertia reel and secure occupants in their seats - the safest possible position in a collision.
SCHROTH's Autocontrol with S.M.A.R.T. is a hi-tech variation of the Rallye 3 harnessbelt with asm. The system comes complete with all hardware and an easy to follow installation instruction manual.
Note: if you are planning to install the Autocontrol harnessbelt in a '92-'97 BMW 3 series (E36 chassis), be sure to order one E36 Adapter Bolt for each harnessbelt. This adapter bolt replaces the factory bolt on the tunnel-side of the seat. It is slightly longer to allow enough additional space to install the SCHROTH harness along with the stock harness. This adapter can be ordered from the the Street Legal Accessories Section.
If the mounting point that you have chosen for your Autocontrol harnessbelt is under a seat cushion or in a location where the inertia reel cannot be bolted directly you will need to order an Autocontrol Adapter listed in the Street Legal Accessories Section.
If you plan to use your Autocontrol harnessbelt for Autocrossing or Driver's Schools you should also purchase a Cut-off Switch which will give you the ability to lock the inertia reel so that the harnessbelt can be fully tightened during an event.
The Autocontrol harnessbelt is a very effective replacement for old harnessbelts in the BMW '02 series. It has also become very popular for installation in Sport Utility and Off-Road Vehicles. Please call us for more details on these types of special applications.
it came down to, do we try to sell it, and get maybe $200 or so for it? or one of us keep it and use it.. and since steve wasn't keen on it he said i should take it.. at first i wasn't going to but then i decided why not, its easy enough to get out of the way if i have anyone in the back seat, and you retain your stock seatbelts.
