    I use a medium size binder clip, clipped on the belt at the top where it goes into the winding mechanism, to make an inch or so of slack in the belt. That keeps the belt from chafing my neck or pulling on my chest while still leaving it secure for use in case of an accident. In my own car I leave it clipped on the belt, but I also carry one in my purse for when I ride with someone else. The clips, designed to hold more pages than a paper clip can handle, are small but strong, very inexpensive, and available wherever office supplies are sold.

    I do have it down, I am 5'1 and even if I sit on a pillow (which is why I bought this car, because I don't need a pillow :D ) it still chokes me :(
    Oh uggg! Ok, get some of that stuff they call sheepskin, fake or real, and make a cover for your strap, you can velcro it on, it will feel soft and won't rub too bad. The other thing I have done on long trips is to scoot myself over the seat to the right as far as possible and still feel comfortable driving. :)
    They make them ready made at the car parts houses and maybe even walmart.

    At 4 ft 10 I can sugest that you go to an automotive store and there are clips available that work like a darn. They clip on to the seat belt and stay where you clip it. Getthem at Canadian Tire in Canada 2 to a pack jane

    Check out this site. I have used these for years. They slip over the seat belt and hold the belt at a certain position and it doesn't choke you anymore.

    I use a bulldog clip... the ones found in office supply stores to hold stacks of documents together. I think mine is 2 or 3 inches long and is strong enough to hold the shoulder strap to the lapstrap.

    You're welcome. Matter of fact, I'm down to my last 2. I'll need to reorder soon.

    I use a binder clip on mine, just cannot stand it on my neck, my friend has a cloth one that velcros on and push it down.

    Good luck with finding something to work for you.

    I have the same problem. This works for me. The gadget changes the position of the shoulder strap.

    Works for me too. Putting a wrap on the seatbelt may minimize the rubbing, but it still chokes.

    I told my DH that the seat belt may hold me in the car, but where the belt hits my neck, I'd bleed to death from the cut in my neck it would cause.

    It depends on your make of car. I went to the Chrysler dealer and they want $40. for one. I told him to forget it!

    On the right hand side where you push in the seat belt, try putting it down, not straight up. It really helps me keep it off my neck.

    I can't stand the seat belt rubbing at my neck and I'm 5'6". I also had the clip that "Glassquilt" mentioned, but got mine at Walmart years ago and they broke. Now they carry a different one made by..Custom Accessories, same type of clip just made a little different. About $3 for a 2 pack.They are in the automobile dept. I have them now, but they keep un-snapping so I'm going to either hot glue where they snap together or somehow tie them together.But, they do keep the belt off your neck.
