(I originally posted this in Motorhome Accessories, but didn't get much response. Maybe that was the wrong section.)

The seatbelts on the rear seat/bed in my VW T5 are quite short, and even fairly slim people have to tug at them to make them reach around to buckle up.

So I bought a seatbelt extender on eBay (https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/172545435665). It calls itself universal, but when I tried it I found the tongue and buckle are 2 cm wide, whereas those on my seat belts are 3 cm wide (see pic).

So I got onto the Web again, but nowhere can I find seatbelt extenders where the tongue and buckle are 3 cm wide. Does anyone know where I can get one?

Is 3 cm a non-standard width? The place who converted the vehicle (3 years ago) turned out to be cowboys, who skimped on lots of things, so I'm beginning to think they even skimped on these seatbelts.

Can't help you, but I bet this firm can, they do all sorts of seatbelts for classic cars and non-standard vehicles. Might be easier to just replace your belts possibly? If you're in doubt about the seatbelts on your van may be as well to get them checked out, where and how they are mounted is critical.

Thanks very much, Feltwell, I'll try them.
