Bob, search the BAC website for "aircraft belts". There is a link for Aircraft Belts Incorporated. They do a great job of rewebbing belts at a reasonable price. I have to say, however, that the normal setting for the belt inertial reels is very "loose", compared to what we are used to in our cars. It is very possible that they won't be any tighter when they come back.

It is mechanically possible to increase the belt tension, but most A&Ps won't do it as it is technically illegal (to the FAA).

Subject: [musketeermail] Skipper Seatbelt Reels

Musketeer Group,

I'm going throught my first annual with my new Skipper N6636E. So
far all seems to be going well.

I was noticing that the reels on my seatbelts don't reel back up very

Is there anyway to fix the reels or do they need to be replaced?

Is there anyway to replace the reels only or do you need to replace
both the reels and the belts as well?

Where would I go for replacement reels and seatbelts? Is Beech the
only place that would have them?
