    Couldn’t you just take a small rod and shape it into a half rectangle so to speak and weld it to cage the loop belt through?

    I picked up a satphone a while back the text communicators are not quick it can be 5mins or more to receive a reply. We got tired of the delay when we were offshore diving.

    They are also as expensive as a satphone plan.

    I built these and used them the first time last weekend at the Mulberry ride. They definately kept me in place.

    I really like what I see in this thread as a former Firefighter/ First Responder.

    Doing cpr on someone whom should have been wearing a seatbelt is well, not fun and very very very unlikely to provide results sadly.

    Don’t let the seatbelt / safety thing be limited to your sxs. Wearing your harness in your sxs and then getting in your truck and not wearing your seatbelt is incredibly stupid.

    With all this said and while sounding like a donkeys rear, the most important safety tool is between your ears!

    In my area sxs’s are commonly used for ice fishing. Safety gear looks different and should consist of the following at a minimum.

    Throw line
    Ice picks and ice cleats
    A throwable life preserver
    Whistle
    Good led light
    Cell phone for emergency calls (others rescue)

    It’s serious coin but I am a believer in floating ice bibs and a jacket. I wear mine at all times on the ice.

    With all that stated, seat belts etc are NOT used on the ice. ANYTHING that impedes quick exit from the sxs is removed (side nets, etc) with the exception of doors for heat and wind purposes. As the risk of drowning from these items is greater than the risk of crashing on the ice.

    While driving on the lake I keep the speeds reasonable, nothing over 2nd high at the most up to 20 mph for safety reasons and more importantly avoiding blowing out the ice and falling in near landings.

    Once ice season is over, appropriate safety equipment for the situation is used / restored.

    FWIW

    Good replies, as prior first responder. Ride with someone else, and if you ride alone, be prepared and carry supplies and equipment, and use cautious riding skills to avoid being a rescue call. I carry winch/tool equip, first aid and ham 2 way radio. Ride sober as many have said. My biggest concern is wild riders on hilly two way trails.

    All it takes is 1 nut and you're smashed. I've always been on a atv until last year and meeting a nut on a sxs was my biggest fear. I always lead the pack when we ride because I figured I'd rather be smashed than my wife or kids.
