Abstract

See full text

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.
