Default Seat Belt Retractor Help Wanted.

When a roof fitted retractor is designed to only lock on deceleration of the vehicle, and not from physically pulling the belt, does that particular design have a name?

Didn't know there was any such thing. The thing about inertia reel belts is that a sudden pull on them is the equivalent of sudden deceleration as far as the mechanism is concerned.

They were fitted to the roofs of some GM coupes.

Donít most newer wagons and hatchbacks have a roof mounted retractable belt for the centre rear passenger?

I'm aware of where they were used. While they can't be swapped with the floor mounted mechanisms due to the way the inertia is sensed, I believe they are still an inertia reel mechanism. They were originally referred to as roof mounted retractors.
