Safety Tips

Seat Belts

Seat belts are essential safety equipment in any vehicle, offering vital protection in the event of a collision. To maximize their effectiveness, it's crucial to adhere to safety guidelines:

Safety spells S.E.A.T. B.E.L.T.S:

  • Securely Fasten: Seat belts are most effective when properly fastened. Ensure that the seatbelt is securely buckled across your lap and shoulder.

  • Ensure Upright Position: Seat belts are most effective when seatbacks are in an upright position. Adjust your seatback accordingly for optimal safety.

  • Avoid Improper Use: Do not wear the shoulder belt under your arm or behind your back, as this can compromise its effectiveness.

  • Twist-Free: Always ensure that the seat belt is untwisted and properly aligned for maximum protection.

  • Replace After Impact: Replace the seat belt assembly after it has been worn in a severe impact, even if damage is not apparent. This ensures continued safety.

  • Everyone Buckle Up: Every person in the vehicle should wear their seat belt, regardless of age or seating position, including infants in appropriate car seats.

  • Proper Child Restraint: Never hold a child in your arms or lap while riding in a vehicle. The forces during a crash can cause severe injury or ejection.

  • No Seat Swapping: Do not allow passengers to change seats while the vehicle is in motion, as this can distract the driver and compromise safety.

  • Single Occupant: Each seat belt is designed to restrain only one occupant. Ensure that each passenger has their own seat belt and does not share with others.

  • Avoid Accessories: Do not use accessories on seat belts, as they can interfere with proper operation and safety.

  • No Seat Modifications: Avoid modifying seats or seat belt systems, as this can compromise their effectiveness in protecting occupants.

By following these guidelines, you can help ensure the safety of yourself and your passengers while traveling in a vehicle. Remember, seat belts save lives.

To remove the spare tire:

Follow these steps:

  • Open the Tailgate: Begin by opening the tailgate of your vehicle to access the spare tire compartment.

  • Remove the Hex Bolt Cover: Locate the plastic hex bolt cover near the spare tire and remove it to access the bolt.

  • Loosen the Bolt: Use the wheel brace to loosen the bolt securing the spare tire. Insert the wheel brace into the bolt and turn it counterclockwise until the spare tire begins to lower.

  • Lower the Spare Tire: Continue turning the wheel brace counterclockwise until the spare tire reaches the ground. Be careful not to rotate the wheel brace excessively to avoid damaging the spare tire carrier.

  • Draw the Spare Tire Outside: Once the spare tire is on the ground, continue turning the wheel brace counterclockwise to draw the spare tire outside of the compartment.

  • Remove the Retainer: Finally, remove the retainer from the center of the spare tire. This may involve unscrewing or releasing the retainer mechanism to free the spare tire completely.

By following these steps, you can safely remove the spare tire from your vehicle when needed. Remember to exercise caution and follow any specific instructions provided by your vehicle's manufacturer.
