Toyota Corolla (E210): Correct use of the seat belts

  • Extend the shoulder belt so that it comes fully over the shoulder, but does not come into contact with the neck or slide off the shoulder.
  • Position the lap belt as low as possible over the hips.
  • Adjust the position of the seatback. Sit up straight and well back in the seat.
  • Do not twist the seat belt.

■Child seat belt usage

The seat belts of your vehicle were principally designed for persons of adult size.

  • Use a child restraint system appropriate for the child, until the child becomes large enough to properly wear the vehicle's seat belt.
  • When the child becomes large enough to properly wear the vehicle's seat belt, follow the instructions regarding seat belt usage.

■Seat belt extender

If your seat belts cannot be fastened securely because they are not long enough, a personalized seat belt extender is available from your Toyota dealer free of charge.

WARNING

WARNING

■Using a seat belt extender

  • Do not wear the seat belt extender if you can fasten the seat belt without the extender.
  • Do not use the seat belt extender when installing a child restraint system because the belt will not securely hold the child restraint system, increasing the risk of death or serious injury in the event of an accident.
  • The personalized extender may not be safe on another vehicle, when used by another person, or at a different seating position other than the one originally intended.

NOTICE

■When using a seat belt extender

When releasing the seat belt, press on the buckle release button on the extender, not on the seat belt.

This helps prevent damage to the vehicle interior and the extender itself.
