Why Use The Safe Harness System?

The Safe Harness Lap Belt System helps prevent injury and death from coach bus accidents.


Unique design helps to ensure coach bus passenger safety

The unique, self securing design of the SafeHarness System helps to ensure coach bus safety. During a collision the single strap design of the SafeHarness System absorbs and attenuates the forward momentum of the passenger.

The SafeHarness System beneficially restrains the passenger during an accident while reducing occurrence of injuries associated with a rigidly anchored restraining system.

Great for commuters, recreational & Business travelers, and high school & college teams

SafeHarness provides motor coach travelers with the light, portable, and easy to use SelfHarness system to ensure that they have a seat belt available for their protection. Some of its uses include:

  • Commercial transportation companies who provide regularly scheduled cross-country service
  • Commuter bus lines
  • Colleges and universities particularly those with athletic teams, bands, band front and cheerleaders
  • Schools, teen tours, and camps which use coach buses for field trips and other transportation
  • Coaches that provide service for cross-country tours
  • Charter bus companies
  • Dedicated buses that are in regular service to entertainment and recreations venues
