This SAE Recommended Practice provides a Glossary of Terms commonly used to describe Seat Belt Restraint Systems Hardware and their function. These terms are currently defined in various SAE Recommended Practices but are sometimes inconsistent. It is intended for this document to supersede the definitions found in separate SAE Recommended Practices.
This standard has been updated to continuously improve the clarity of the definitions. The latch plate definitions were also updated to be compatible with the revisions to SAE J140 and SAE J141.
