The invention relates to a deflection device with means for direct clamping locking of the belt which takes place according to the severity of the loading in a progressive manner. With the usually occurring locking in normal vehicle conditions, such as for example upon braking above 0.4 g, a first arresting action takes place with a weak clamping which does not damage the textile webbing. Only in the case of higher loading, which occurs in the case of an accident, a second arresting action occurs which effects secure and slip-free load transfer by application of aggressive clamping means. This type of locking is--excluding taut belts--the most efficient. It results in very small initial displacement of the occupant. The use-cost analysis is optimal since light and economic winders can be employed.
Please note there is up to 60 days of latency in this Status indicator for certain status conditions. You can obtain up-to-date Status indicator readings by ordering PAIR for the file.
An application with the status "Published" (which means it is pending) may be recently abandoned, but not yet updated to reflect its abandoned status. However, an application filed less than one year ago is unlikely to be abandoned.
A patent with the status "Granted" may be recently expired, but not yet updated to reflect its expired status. However, it is highly unlikely a patent less than 3.5 years old would be expired.
An application with the status "Abandoned" is almost always current, but there is a small chance it was recently revived and the status not yet updated.
