With the purchase of this SCHROTH asm harnessbelt, you have chosen a sophisticated restraint system, which represents a further advance in harness restraint technology. Extensive research, testing and field experience has shown it to offer, when properly installed and worn, high levels of protection in head-on collisions.
SCHROTH BMW specific asm-Rallye 4 Series harnessbelts are only intended for installation at the left and right outboard front seating positions of designated BMW and MINI model passenger cars which have been specifically evaluated by SCHROTH engineers for anchor point locations and suitability of available front seats. Before attempting installation, please first answer the following questions and carefully follow the instructions which accompany them.
This SCHROTH asm harnessbelt is only suitable for adults on front outboard seating positions. SCHROTH asm harnessbelts are not intended or suited for use by children under 12 years of age, or persons who weigh less than 88 lbs (40 kg) or those who are less than 4′11″ tall (1.50 meters), regardless of age. Such persons will not be adequately protected by the harness system and may receive more severe injury than would otherwise be expected. SCHROTH U.S. model harnessbelts have been tested in accordance with performance parameters of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard 209 with the exception of Paragraph S 4.6 (full scale impact testing as described in FMVSS 208). FMVSS 209 deals with lap and three point restraints and does not expressly refer to harness belts. SCHROTH has nevertheless applied the performance criteria specified in FMVSS 209 to the system to the extent applicable.
These belts, when properly installed and used according to applicable instructions can mitigate injury. The ability of any restraint system to mitigate or prevent injury is directly related to the type and severity of the accident. SCHROTH asm harnessbelts have been tested in dynamic sled tests utilizing a 75 kg (165 lbs) Hybrid II anthropometric dummy to simulate head-on collisions at 50 km/h (31 mph). They also have been dynamically tested utilizing a 75 kg mass dummy in accordance with European Safety Standard ECE-R 16.04.
