Did you know that it is recommended to change your safety harnesses every two years? According to the SFI Foundation, [1] “a non-profit organization established to issue and administer standards for the quality assurance of specialty performance and racing equipment”, due to UV exposure, excessive force, untreated webbing, etc., safety harnesses degrade and greatly increase your chance of injury in the case of an accident.

There are many factors that contribute to the wear and tear of safety harnesses so much so that it is imperative to update them every two years.

PRP Seats attributes improper installation and the material of the straps to the deterioration of safety harnesses. When the straps are installed incorrectly, they move to one side of the connecting hardware and greatly reduce the amount of weight it can handle. You can tell your safety harnesses are installed correctly when they [2] “pull flat and evenly.”

Additionally, a strong harness should be made out of polyester rather than nylon. [2] “Nylon is known to absorb moisture and loses some of its strength when that occurs. Polyester materials repel water and retain their ability to stretch”.

When it comes to purchasing new safety harnesses, be sure to look for the SFI tag to make sure it's approved for off-roading. 

All of the safety harnesses offered at SidebySideUTVParts.com are SFI rated for recreational driving, not racing. It is important that we share the exact specifications of our safety harnesses so our customers know the durability and quality of the product they are purchasing.
