  • Patent number: 4159127
    Abstract: Safety apparatus for restraining a seated occupant in a vehicle may comprise a tunnel-shaped body to restrain the lower torso of a large child or an adult, the body providing a base on which a movable chest-restraining panel is pivotally mounted. In the case of a small child, the lower torso restraining means includes an additional seat providing a base, for example, with a separate fixed panel and/or side portions, on which the chest restraining panel is pivotally mounted. The straps at each side of the occupant's body anchor the lower torso restraining means to the vehicle while enabling limited inertial movement relative to the vehicle seat. If the vehicle decelerates suddenly, the occupant's inertia moves the lower torso restraining means away from the seat until the straps are tensioned and act on lever means to pivot the chest restraining panel into its operative position. Either the lever means, or other locking means, may act as a stop to prevent return movement of the chest restraining panel.

  • Patent number: 4090735
    Abstract: A safety harness to restrain the operator of an earthmoving vehicle. The harness includes a pelvis belt connected to respective shoulder belts, each end of the pelvis belt and the shoulder belts are connected to belt retractors lockable by means responsive to both belt speed and the inclination of a vehicle. The vehicle inclination response of each retractor is similar, so that they act simultaneously, and a device is provided for adjusting the vehicle inclination response independently of the belt speed response to give the operator freedom of movement with safety restraint. The device may be coupled by cables to respective levers for locking the retractors, disabling the vehicle inclination response or for making the vehicle inclination response effective or by a double-acting solenoid having an armature for achieving the same effect.
