I am looking for a new set of belts and I am thinking I will try a set with a camlock. I have heard that some of the belts come with steel or aluminum hardware. What should I look for in adjusters. Your opinion and why for your favorite brand. Thanks!!

Since they're only good for 2 years, I go with whatever they have in stock.

Camlocks are great. I've used RJS and now Racer Direct which is connected to RJS. Both made in USA. I tried the RCI platinums and had problems as did others on here. They had a hardware issue and I returned them to Summit and bought RJS.

I recommend the Pro1 belts made here in America by one of our racers and they are able to make semi custom belts.

I must have received the only bad camlock that Crow ever made. Awful.

I've been a G-Force guy for many years now. Very smooth and priced right.

Consider any cam lock belt that can be re-certified and is somewhat close to send in and not 2000 miles away. I still have the same cam lock belt hardware in my car from 2007 and has been re-certified every 2 years for the same $50 plus the ride.

the best is Simpson, hardware, belt weave, quality and comfort and you'll find Simpson harnesses in the majority of all professionally built race cars, every other manufacturer is fighting for market share to be #2. Been using cam lock belts since first running a 10.99 back in '98. I hope never to need my safety equipment but if I do, I know I purchased the best, a product consider to be not only the benchmark in safety but unfortunately tested on the race track, not some junk that was copied and fit my budget.

Once you go cam lock you'll never go back. I got a set of Pro1 in the wagon and like them as well as any I've ever owned. Getting ready to purchase a set for the dragster soon also. Good product.

FYI, pro 1 has been in business less than 2 years. If you want to trust your life to a new start up, the local boy that's in your backyard, have at it.

The cam lock on the Simpson 5 point in my Firbird is on the lap belt. The cam lock on the Simpson 6 point in my dragster is on the crotch belt.

I've used G Force and RJS.....I gave away a new set of RJS I hated them so much. I like the G Force quite a bit.
