Front safety belt pretensioners

Front safety belt pretensioners  - How does the Personal Safety System work? - Personal safety system - Seating and Safety Restraints - Lincoln MKZ Owners Manual - Lincoln MKZ

The safety belt pretensioners at the front outboard seating positions are designed to tighten the safety belts firmly against the occupants body during frontal collisions, and in side collisions when the side curtains and side airbags are activated. This helps increase the effectiveness of the safety belts. In frontal collisions, the safety belt pretensioners can be activated alone or, if the collision is of sufficient severity, together with the front airbags.
