  • Patent number: 4688849
    Abstract: A child passenger securing apparatus for use in a vehicle includes a body which has a seat portion and a backrest portion and which defines a hollow portion extending from the seat portion to the backrest portion. A portion of a webbing unwound from a retractor secured within the hollow portion of the seat portion is passed through the hollow portion and led out from a lead-out portion provided in the backrest portion so that a child passenger is fastened by this portion of the webbing. Accordingly, the webbing is prevented from contacting a seat for an adult passenger on which the apparatus is mounted, so that the webbing moves smoothly when it is unwound and rewound.

  • Patent number: 4685741
    Abstract: A child passenger securing apparatus includes an apparatus body which is provided with a child passenger restraining webbing. One end of the webbing is led into the inside of the body, passed through a through-hole provided in a fixed plate, passed over an engaging portion of a lock plate and then turned up in such a manner that its direction is reversed, and is then passed through the through-hole again in the opposite direction. Accordingly, the fixed and lock plates are disposed below the seat portion of the apparatus body, and this allows the surface of the seat portion to be flattened. Since the lock plate is slidable along the fixed plate, the tension which acts on the webbing causes the lock plate to slide relative to the fixed plate so as to clamp an intermediate portion of the webbing, and the webbing tension is thereby reliably born.

  • Patent number: 4678928
    Abstract: A controller for automatically effecting disengagement of a buckle device includes a moving means which moves a lock plate engaged with a tongue plate. When a predetermined period of time has elapsed after the acceleration acting on the vehicle exceeds a predetermined value, the controller controls the moving means such that the tongue plate and the lock plate are automatically disengaged from each other. It is possible to automatically disengage the tongue plate from the buckle device in an emergency situation, such as collision or overturn, of the vehicle.

  • Patent number: 4585184
    Abstract: In a webbing tension device adapted for use in a webbing retractor for a vehicle in which a takeup shaft retracting an occupant restraining webbing thereon is biased in a direction of a webbing retraction by small resilient means and in an emergency situation of the vehicle a biasing force of large resilient means is transmitted to the takeup shaft through one clutch means so that the takeup shaft is biased in the direction of the webbing retraction by the large resilient means, another clutch means is disposed between the takeup shaft and the large resilient means. Accordingly, when the webbing is fully retracted on the takeup shaft after the vehicle is released from the emergency situation, the another clutch means is put in its connected situation, and when the webbing is unwound from the takeup shaft after it is retracted fully on the takeup shaft, an unwinding rotation of the takeup shaft is transmitted to the large resilient means, so that the large resilient means is wound up.
