Inadequate consumer warnings, or failure to warn of known dangers
Venting & folding defects (mistakes in the number, location, and size of gas vents and patterns used to fold airbags)
Causes Of Seatbelt Failure
Faulty material used for the seatbelt webbing, resulting in tearing
Poor or defective design: mounting the seatbelt anchor to the car ceiling, which could break or bend in the event of a vehicle rollover
Manufacturing and assembly errors and defects
Accidental or inertial unlatching of the buckle: flying objects or body parts (like your elbow) can unlock buckle, or the sheer force of the collision can cause buckle to unlatch
False latch: when a latch plate looks, feels and sounds as though it has been inserted into the buckle, but the lock is not actually secured and a slight amount of force will unlatch the seatbelt
Seatbelts detaching from their anchor points and mount
Retractor error causing too much slack, or spooling out
Lack of or failure of seatbelt pretensioner
Lack of three-point harness, or lap belt only design (typically found in older model vehicles)
