Golf cart seat belts are an important safety feature for small children as well as adults.
For those who use their golf carts for getting around a golf cart community, RV park or hunting grounds, an important golf cart accessory is a seat belt. A sudden stop or turn can quickly eject a rider that can lead to a serious injury or even death.
Here are the features you need to consider:
1. Retractable or non-retractable
2. A lift lever or a bush button style to release the belt.
3. The seat belt length.
The most common sizes are belt lengths that can adjust to a maximum of 60, 74, 90 or 110 inches.
4. The number of seats
Seat belt kits come as sets for 2 or 4 passengers.
Golf car seat belts are universal - meaning they should fit
almost any make or model golf cart. If you are installing them for the
first time be sure you purchase the seat belt kit that includes the bolts.
If your golf cart is going to be used as a street legal golf cart, seat belts are required for every seat.

The first accessory our daughter bought for her golf cart was front and rear seat seat belts. Our grandkids are always wearing seat belts when they ride on the paths.
Did you know that there are around 15,000 injuries to golf cart riders in the US each year that require an ER visit? One of the main causes of injury is passengers being ejected from the golf cart and sustaining a head injury. Many of these injuries involve young children.
A fast moving golf cart that suddenly makes a left turn forces the passenger to shift right and can then lead to a sudden and serious fall out of the cart.
Because of the speed of the ejection, passengers who land on their head experience head trauma. There are many reports of children who have experienced traumatic brain injuries or have died from just such a scenario. Seat belts help protect passengers sitting in the back and the front from being ejected.
