  1. While holding the body side of the belt or harness strap toward you, bend the strap into a “U” shape and examine the entire length of the harness strap or belt
  2. Check “D” rings for any distortion, cracks, breaks or rough, sharp edges. The “D” ring should pivot freely
  3. Attachment buckles should be checked for any unusual wear, frayed or cut fibers, or distortion of buckles
  4. Friction and Mating Buckles – Again, inspect the buckles for distortion. The outer bars must be straight and center bar must be straight and parallel
