Buick Encore: Seat Belts / Shoulder Belt Height Adjuster

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

The vehicle has a shoulder belt height adjuster for the driver and front outboard passenger seating positions.

Adjust the height so the shoulder portion of the belt is on the shoulder and not falling off of it. The belt should be close to, but not contacting, the neck. Improper shoulder belt height adjustment could reduce the effectiveness of the seat belt in a crash. See How to Wear Seat Belts Properly.
