How do you untangle a car seat belt?

What are some tricks to untangle a car seat belt? I (foolishly) let my daughter undo her own seat belt, and she somehow twisted it into the perfect tangle.

Kids and cars don’t always mix well, but practice makes perfect! Luckily, you can untwist your seatbelts by slowing down and studying the knot. Follow these steps to untangle your car seatbelts:
  • Start by untwisting the straps as much as you can.
  • Check for knots. If it’s tied up, the next step won’t work.
  • Then fold a little triangle in the strap and pull the folded strap through the buckle.
  • Your strap should fully untwist!
Twisted seat belts can be frustrating, but they aren’t too difficult to fix. If you’d like to prevent future tangles, keep them fastened when you’re not using them. That way, you’ll be forced to straighten them every time you use them.
