I strap my rears to the roll bar with a velcro strap.

X2 I use the little bungee chord with the ball on it though. Velcro would probably be better since it wouldn't squeeze a ditch in the rollbar padding like mine have.

My front driver's side is the only one that flaps, verrrry annoying. However I never remember to get something to strap it down til I hit the road and hear it again. Haha. Glad I'm not the only person with this problem.

x78987633 on the velcro. You can pick up a roll of double sided velcro at Autozone. Strapped all 4 of mine down. Put the smooth side next to the belts, or with time and wind the scratchy side will chew on the belts....

I got a 6 pack of large velcro 'cable ties'... works like a charm. It doubles as a restraint when i take my doors off and put them in the back while i am away from home.

Ditto. I use the really small ones and put two on each side.

I like these for lots of applications:
Velcro ® Strap 5/8" x 12" Cinch Strap

I have em all over the rig. But then again, I'm a teensy bit OCD about cable management.

Well, OBVIOUSLY, I must be missing something fantastic and MUST add velcro straps to my Jeep Wish List.

On my 2 door JK-X the only thing that flaps with the doors off is the passenger belt.

Here's my fix - buckle up the belt, then take the part next to the roll bar and route it behind the passenger head rest - quiet up to 60 mph, and above that, as the French say "le petit flappage"...............

its funny everyone mentions Velcro, I've got a Velcro strap on every seat belt, but my 2 belts in the front still flap all around after 60mph... i do a lot of highway driving, and 60+ is a very common occurrence in my jeep, especially with the doors off... i liked the idea of the snaps that "The Great Escape" is using... where did you find those? a marine store?? i was at home depot last week looking for those for another project and the tool that applies them, and couldn't find them.....
by the way, thanks everyone who posted on here... very helpful!!

I've never even considered velcro on my seatbelts. I hear them from time to time at speed but then I just ignore them. Might have to try the velcro some time. The snaps is pretty ingenious too, but velcro is muck simpler, so it's a good first try to see if there's any difference.

No doubt!!!

You don't hear me whining about the clunking coming from my transfer case do you?

I found it helpful to buckle in, unused belts. No more flapping.

i used a few loose zip ties, one on the top and one on the bottom, seat belts still work fine and kills the noise.
Lets see how well/long this works.

I used to remove them. A torx bit on my 18v impact driver will get them off in under a minute. Now i bungee cord them. I want to make some nylon covers with velcro to cover 90%+ of the seat belt to keep them from getting sun bleached. On my last jeep the belts were badly faded, and that can't be good!

Simple & easy. 10" mini bungi cords. 4 for $2.00. I got mine at Farm & Fleet but I know they sell them at Menards and Wallmart.

Mine came with these straps that lock kind of like the straps on a back pack. I have both strapped down then remove them when someone uses the back seat.
