new solution for torn pants!

Got an email from Paddocks today which included a new product from X Engineering; The x-trouser! They re-engineered the door latch so it wont catch your pants. I may have to give those a try here soon!

on late model defenders they have a kind of cover that prevents the seatbelt catching in the door catch as well ... wonder if anyone knows the part number?

Not sure about that. I caught my pants a couple times in the 2011 Puma I was driving in Africa last month.

Funny, I just tore a belt loop off my favorite shorts the other day too!

I have to get them on my 90. Safer for my wife when she is dressed nice for work.

The catch caught my wifes dress one time downtown. Damn near ripped the whole thing off. Good thing it was dark out and we were headed home anyways. She was so pissed though. I laughed the whole way home, then slept on the couch. Totally worth it. True story.
