Our trucks are equipped with pyrotechnic seatbelt pretensioners as part of the SRS system. The system that trips the airbags trips the pretensioners. There is a chain and sprocket type setup on the bottom recoiler with a pyro charge on it. When it fires, the chain is yanked and it recoils the seatbelt tight.

Those left turns will get ya every time! Glad you all made it out ok.

There will be pictures online after I get them. I'll send out a link to them. (assuming I remember to.)
