For 2013 and in response to overwhelming demand, Impact and MasterCraft Safety are proud to introduce a new option for the most versatile belts in the industry today; the Ratcheting Harness. Specifically engineered with extreme racing conditions in mind, Impact and MasterCraft Safety have extensively tested their American-made ratcheting lap belt in both the lab and on the race course through CEO Robbie Pierce’s off-road racing efforts in his SCORE Trophy Truck. “Getting the belts tight enough in the heat of battle when off-road racing can be difficult for some people,” Pierce explained. “Particularly when getting back in the truck quickly, such as during a tire change.”
MasterCraft Safety’s ratcheting mechanism can be specified for either the left or right side use. Both feature a bolt-in installation on the mechanism side while the opposing side can be customized to the user’s preference with either a snap-in or bolt-in end. The ratcheting mechanism replaces one (left or right, depending on your preference) of the standard lap adjusters allowing the belt to be quickly and easily tightened independently by the competitor, without the need for outside assistance. The mechanism uses a 1/4-inch drive ratchet found in every racer’s toolbox for adjustment, making the system even more versatile.
