NEW SAFETY HARNESS (Nov, 1955)

NEW SAFETY HARNESS

At least four famous racing drivers owe their lives to this simple 2-1/2-pound safety gadget.

FOUR Lincoln crew members of the recent Pan American-Mexican Road Race attribute their lives to the new Pacific Harness Safety Reel which bolts to the car’s floor. Attached to a shoulder harness, the reel allows cable to feed in or out, giving the driver freedom of movement up to 18 inches. But in an emergency, the reel locks instantly and automatically, snubbing the driver within just one-half inch of travel—perhaps saving his life.

    Wow- that long ago? I remember early ’70s cars that still had non-retracting manually adjusted shoulder belts.
