What is everyone paying for their seat belts on Eli Wheels?

You now need to put seat belts on a wheel?
It is what you learn, after you know it all, that counts.

I've seen some Eli's with seat belts. But I've also seen operators selecting enforcing wearing them. Generally kids in the seat are made to wear the belts, adults may not be asked to fasten them.

California made thm mandatory a couple of years ago, It really screws up loading of an alredy slow ride.

Here in CT and NY all riders have to wear a seat belt. We have really worn out retractable seat belts on the Eli Hy-5. Not sure about the cost but they have been on it longer than I've ran it. School bus seat belts work and they cost about $25 a piece.

I know what your talking about, the retractable part is at the end of the belt? people think they've figured it out, and the belt locks, so they cant buckle it.......... easier to buckle it your self

My boss told me I could yell at customers to not touch anything when they get on the ride. It is much easier and safer to do the belt and lap bar yourself. I consistently would be putting on peoples seat belts and parents and children will pull down the lap bar and slam it into my head. This is probably why every other person I've watched run the wheel makes the customers put on their own seat belt.
