Seat belt brackets don't let door completely shut!

Not sure these are the correct seat belt brackets as the don't allow my front doors to shut. If they are the wrong ones I don't want to try to modify and impact the structural integrity. Any recommendations?

The originals had seat belts strap integrated to the bracket not bolt on so there looks to be something odd to start with.

This is the replacement type I have on mine

Looks like they are in wrong handed. That one is the right side I think. The other thing is that the shoulder bolt should run in a lot more so it is not sticking out and the anchor plate pivots in the shoulder and not the threads. There's supposed to be a flat washer and a wavy washer under it.
The socket head cap screws aren't helping either. If you must have a socket head, maybe swap for button head. Otherwise, hex heads are best along with good washers.

Thanks folks. I will experiment with moving things around and using smaller fastener heads to see if I can get some clearance.

Yes the longer surface bolts down to the seat box and the shorter to the front of the tub. And just use hex bolts like the factory did.

The belts have been replaced with incorrect parts.- jason is correct. The original part is below the new part, the originals were sewn in and they just bolted a new one into the bracket...

Any good supplier will have the correct belts in stock (we do but are closed this week and there should be a couple good guys close to you)
