CG lock sucks. It only locks the lap part of the belt. There is a special little trick you can use to lock the entire belt and make hard driving much more enjoyable.

Get in car

Slide seat back

Tighten belt snugly across lap

Using left hand, hold shoulder belt tightly against chest up by your left shoulder ***

Using other hand, reach up to where belt loops through the guide and pull as hard and as fast as you can. If you get it right, it should lock with less than 1" of belt pulled out.

Now, lean forward into the belt to keep it locked/tight.

While leaning forward, reach under the seat to the slide and slide the seat forward. Sometimes it's helpful to pull up using the steering wheel.

Locked!! You should be able to sit in the seat without it unlocking if you have done this correctly.

*** Some people find it easy to hold the should belt with their right hand (holding it by your left shoulder) and pull with their left hand.

I learned this trick when I was autocrossing. A locked belt will keep you snug in the seat. I tried the CG-Lock and I ended up with a sore back because the shoulder part of the belt was loose.

1. push seat back and buckle.
2. retract belt fully, even lean back to help.
3. pull belt fast to engage safety lock.
4. push seat forward until you're comfortable.
5. get seat to lock in place.
6. ????
7. Profit.

That's a good trick to use at an autox, but for day-to-day driving I'm not going to do that each time..
