Looks like a good, cheap way to secure the belts during a track day.

I have been using a CG-lock for over 2 years now. It really helps prevent me from sliding in the seat during cornering (i'm a tiny person). Aside from that, it's easy to put on, take off, easy to adjust (for when youre wearing heavier clothes or just a t-shirt), and it's not expensive compared to a 4 point harness. Of course it's not as good as a 4 point. The only negative I have is that sometimes I release the belt too quickly and it hits the plastic on the B-pillar and leaves a mark.

I know JnJ carries them - I'd recommend using a vendor here instead of directly from the manufacture cause it's cheaper and supports nasioc:

The sale is old but they still have them in stock cheaper than c-glock.com

I'm a big dude and it doesn't help me with sliding side to side at all. However, what it does do is make sure I actually stay in the seat, out of the ceiling, and behind the steering wheel over bumps, crests, sharp changes in direction, etc. It also makes bracing with my legs much more effective. All of this together allows me to relax my upper body and arms. This makes my steering much smoother and results in significantly quicker driving.

I wouldn't drive hard without it.

I have it on my car. While it definitely is nice to have the lap belt snugged down, it still does nothing for the upper body, and the shoulder belt. I've got more weight up top than most people, so I still roll all over the place.

Hopefully this will change when I get the Recaros in.

I have 1 in my car it is great for autox. I'm also considering one for my pregnant wife as it lets you give the belt some slack while still sinching in an accident when you need it.

I found those AND the other two posted in this thread alread.

something tells me it's not the search function that is deficient.


(use advance search.
look for threads w/ "CG Lock" in titles only in the General forum & sub-forums.
209 threads come up, because search does not seem to filter on "CG".
scan the titles.
find 6 threads.
well, seven with this one now.

I agree, but I do not like how it tends to get tighter over an auto-x run. In other words, I have to keep adjusting it or it gets too tight.

See, I'm the exact opposite, even on the open road when we're having a fun in the hills day, I yank that sucker down as tight as I can get it. If I can't feel the edges of the seatbelt on my hip bones, it ain't tight enough.

I'm with you man. I pull that thing tight everytime I drive. I use the CG Lock when I auto-x and it holds me in really tight. I like using a harness better. It holds me in a LOT better. But I like the CG-Lock for everyday driving. It really holds you in the seat. I love taking fast turns and everything during my daily commute and this thing really keeps me in the seat.

Had them on my MS Miata. Worked great. They are a bit clunky when you unbuckle yourself though.

I just got mine a few days ago, and I don't know how I've lived this long without one. Everyone should have one of these. It's cheap, and it performs exactly as advertised. +1 on the JnJ recommendation, that's where I got mine.
