I heard holding it upright and shaking it will loosen it up. Worth a shot.

It seems to me you have to have the lower part mounted on the roll bar. You can either stick the bolt in like you are about to mount it or undo the upper shoulder bolt attaching it to the roll bar and remount it. Then you will be able to pull the belt out and re attach the upper one. Does this make sense?

same thing happened to me when i lined my jeep. I forgot exactly what i did but i think i mounted the part you have hanging now then tried to get it to come out more. If i remember correctly there is some kind of mechanize that gets engaged when its not level.

Well i gave up and drove up to the local ford place since the jeep place is far out. Asked if there was a trick and he came out and slightly twisted it and pulled right down. He said he worked at jeep for 20 years and theres a very special way to hold it and it comes right down... I was amazed haha but its fixed. Thanks guys

Turn it upside down. There is a little spring and check assembly in there and turning it causes it to release nicely. If you ever take one apart to fix it you will see what I am talking about. Unfortunately I did not take any pictures.

Although you've already got it for future reference... I had this problem with my belts as well. If you have them straight up and down (like how they are mounted) the mechanism inside that causes them to lock in event of quick braking will release. It's just a ball bearing that rolls into place and forces the belt not to move, this is why when you are out on the trails and on a hill your belt will not move.
