Buick Encore: Seat Belts / Lap-Shoulder Belt

Buick Encore 2020-2022 Owner's Manual / Seats and Restraints / Seat Belts / Lap-Shoulder Belt

All seating positions in the vehicle have a lap-shoulder belt.

The following instructions explain how to wear a lap-shoulder belt properly.

  1. Adjust the seat, if the seat is adjustable, so you can sit up straight. To see how, see “Seats” in the Index.

  2. Pick up the latch plate and pull the belt across you. Do not let it get twisted.

    The lap-shoulder belt may lock if you pull the belt across you very quickly. If this happens, let the belt go back slightly to unlock it. Then pull the belt across you more slowly.

    If the shoulder portion of a passenger belt is pulled out all the way, the child restraint locking feature may be engaged. See Child Restraint Systems . If this occurs, let the belt go back all the way and start again. If the locking feature stays engaged after letting the belt go back to stowed position on the seat, move the seat rearward or recline the seat until the shoulder belt retractor lock releases.

    The rear center seat belt can only be withdrawn from the retractor if the seatback is in the upright locked position.

  3. Push the latch plate into the buckle until it clicks.

    Pull up on the latch plate to make sure it is secure. If the belt is not long enough, see Seat Belt Extender.

    Position the release button on the buckle so that the seat belt could be quickly unbuckled if necessary.

  4. If equipped with a shoulder belt height adjuster, move it to the height that is right for you. See “Shoulder Belt Height Adjuster” later in this section for instructions on use and important safety information.

  5. To make the lap part tight, pull up on the shoulder belt.

    To unlatch the belt, push the button on the buckle. The belt should return to its stowed position.

    Always stow the seat belt slowly. If the seat belt webbing returns quickly to the stowed position, the retractor may lock and cannot be pulled out. If this happens, pull the seat belt straight out firmly to unlock the webbing, and then release it. If the webbing is still locked in the retractor, see your dealer.

    Before a door is closed, be sure the seat belt is out of the way. If a door is slammed against a seat belt, damage can occur to both the seat belt and the vehicle.
