Abstract

See full text

A shoulder belt mounting assembly includes a mounting bracket attached to the vehicle and having a transversely extending arcuate bearing surface. The assembly further includes a pivot clip having a belt-receiving portion through which the shoulder belt webbing is routed and having a mounting portion adapted for snap-fitted engagement onto the mounting bracket. The mounting portion of the pivot clip includes a transversely extending arcuate pivot surface seated atop and slidably engaging the arcuate bearing surface of the mounting bracket when the pivot clip is mounted on the mounting bracket such that the pivot clip freely transversely pivots relative the mounting bracket. Thus, facile pivotal movement of the shoulder belt webbing relative the vehicle is permitted by the transverse pivotal movement of the pivot clip relative the mounting bracket.
