Seat belts locked up after accident? No problem. Yes the seat belts are equipped with a gas-charge that ignites during an accident, tensioning the belt and reducing the force of the airbag impact – when deployed. Once the seat belt is deployed, it will no longer function properly and certainly will not go off during another accident. If the accident was minor and you’re planning on repairing the damage, the seat belts are one of the most important components.
Here is a video created by Toyota New Zealand to help demonstrate the function of the seat belt tensioner:
