Knots and systems of safety of the driver and passengers

THE GENERAL DATA

SYSTEM OF RESTRICTION OF MOVINGS OF PASSENGERS AND THE DRIVER

The number of components of system includes seat belts fixed in three points, and also pillows of safety of the driver and the passenger (if it is provided).
Thus, depending on failure of an overload defined by gravity the system works in two stages. At the first stage there is a blocking of seat belts that guarantees fixing of the driver and passengers on the seats. Further, at a considerable face-to-face overload the system of pillows of safety (if that is provided) works, providing additional protection of the driver and the forward passenger.

At the same time inertial the returnable device provides reliable blocking of a belt at sharp braking or face-to-face front blow.

PERFORMANCE ORDER
1. For clothing accurately extend a belt from the returnable device and, trying not to overwind, throw it through a shoulder.
2. Insert metal скобу the lock into a buckle before click. Thus the seat back not should be too strongly is inclined back. The zone site of a belt thus also without перекручивания should adjoin to a body densely.

Инициация pillows occurs at strong front blow of the car which vector is in sector 30 from an axial line. If the car hits about a rigid obstacle operation of pillows occurs even at insignificant speed of movement. For operation of pillows after collision with an obstacle giving in to deformation (for example other car) speed of movement of the car should be enough high.


The remark
