Morris Classic Seatbelt question

I have a 68 Camaro with procar rally 1000 seats. I see Morris now sells seatbelts with longer brackets listed for TMI seats. Has anybody used these longer brackets with procar seats? I am thinking they are making them longer for the bolsters?

Re: Morris Classic Seatbelt question

Jeff,

I have the TMI bolsters on my stock seats with no issues.

The brackets are to move the reel backwards to clear the TMI frames and seat adjustment lever.

Re: Morris Classic Seatbelt question

Billy, I also have the pro car rally seats with your belts. I am also curious about the longer brackets (6.5 and 9” ones). If you are trying to use the TMI Pro or Procar rally style seats, rearward placement of the seat is limited with your “original” brackets. I had to remove the pivot cover (back and bottom hinge) so there is no contact. If possible, can you please post pictures of the new brackets? Are they available to be sold to retrofit in your older kits? Any info would be appreciated!

Re: Morris Classic Seatbelt question

We will sell you the brackets if we can verify the customer actually has our seat belts.
We want to control the safety of our products and definitely don't want our brackets on
any other seat belt assemblies. Hope you understand our position on this issue.
The brackets are basically a bracket that bolts into the factory floor location and the reel
bolts to the rear of the bracket.

Re: Morris Classic Seatbelt question

I understand Billy, I will give you guys a call this week. Is there any reason you can't at least post pictures of the new style brackets?

Re: Morris Classic Seatbelt question

We can discuss the install when you call.
Have you looked at our mirrors & Convertible 3 points?

Re: Morris Classic Seatbelt question

130fe, I am not sure what removing the pivot cover (back and bottom hinge) means. is this on the seat or the seatbelt? Can you please post back after your conversation with Morris. I have heard the reel is tight between the seat and door panel, some say their's hits the door panel. Did you have any problems in this area? Thanks

Re: Morris Classic Seatbelt question

Jeff,
The reel is 2 7/8 inches thick. I have a 69 and the door closes easily.
I have stock door panels and TMI seat foams in the front.
The reel will sit against the door panel in most applications as there isn't
much clearance between the seat & door panel. You could use the bracket
for the TMI seats as it moves the reel back & inward 11/2 inches it sets the seat
belt reel behind the seat.
All of our seat belts are year and car specific.We fit the seat belt
reel in every car and design our brackets to clear the seat, door panel
and seat adjustment lever.
Hope this helps.
Thx, Billy

Re: Morris Classic Seatbelt question

Hi All, I just wanted to say I installed the 3 point seat belts with pro car seats. The installation was easy and the belts are really nice. Close fit with the reel to the door, but I think a sheet of paper would slide between. I did not need any of the new brackets, I used the standard stock seat brackets.
Thank you Billy, these worked out great.

Re: Morris Classic Seatbelt question

Good to know about the brackets that move the reel back. I installed factory convertible shoulder belts years ago, and my installer had to swap new TMI seats (driver and passenger) so I could actually use the recline lever. The TMI lever hits the factory location of the OEM male reel (closest to door) so it could not be used. With the passenger seat installed on the driver side the lever is now accessible with your right hand, right side for adjustment. If I ever change belts I'll swap the seats to their correct location.
