Ensure your Safety With Gm Seat Belt and Gm Brake Dust Shield

By: Miranda Restelle

There's nothing more important than safety on the road on one's GM vehicle. To assure this, certain GM parts need to be given the best care in order to function at their best.

The main function of the brake system is to deliver needed safety while driving on the road. With such vital role comes the responsibility of extending life and ensuring its maximum performance. One such way to do that is using a GM brake dust shield.

Every time one steps on the brakes pedal, brake dust accumulate to form a black grime made of metal filings, carbon, and other ingredients. This is a corrosive by-product that, if not properly prevented, will become acidic and will definitely destroy the finish and cause pits that can weaken the wheel. A GM brake dust shield's main function is to act as a protective cover in order to minimize wear and tear. It does this dust by preventing the brake dust from making it to the rim or mags on the wheels and preventing by catches all the brake dust blown from the brake disc before they reach the rims. A typical is made of aluminum plates that are custom molded to specific vehicle brake system applications. Since it is located between the rim and brake discs of a car right above the wheel, this makes it easer for a more effective shielding and collection of debris. Moreover, GM brake dust shields do not interfere with the braking system and will not affect the braking systems' cooling or overheating.

The is another GM part that contributes to road safety. A GM seat belt is a harness designed to hold in place the occupant of a car or other vehicle against harmful movement that may result from a collision or a sudden stop. As part of an overall occupant restraint system, seat belts are intended to reduce injuries by stopping the wearer from hitting hard interior elements of the vehicle or other passengers and by preventing the wearer from being thrown from the vehicle.

A typical GM seatbelt consists of a lap belt, which rests over your pelvis, and a shoulder belt, which extends across your chest. The two belt sections are tightly secured to the frame of the car in order to hold passengers in their seats. For more safety, seatbelt design continues to be improved. Energy-absorbing fibers, seat belt tensioners, and height adjusters are already available to make seat belts safer and more comfortable.
