NASHVILLE — Like a lot of consumers, Paul McAleer focused on comfort when he recently went car shopping. Adjustable seats, a tilt steering wheel and extra height were all important. Because he's a self-described "fat guy," the website designer also has to check to see if he can fit in the seat belt.

They do! My grandparents have them for their Buicks. They use them in the backseat for ease of finding the buckle receiver. It's easier to click them in the front, but not the back for some reason...

Makes sense to me, John

Absolutely no excuse, but I can well imagine how uncomfortable a seat belt could be for a "full figured" person.
