rear seat belts flap in wind

When i get above 35 mph, my rear seat belts flap around in the wind and drive me crazy. I have tried fastening them (as someone would wear them), but that doesn't seem to help. Anybody else have this problem? Anybody got a way to fix it?

I use a small bungee cord around each belt wrapped around the roll bar. It works pretty good. It will fight the insanity at highway speeds.

Go down to Lowe's and buy yourself a velcro strap for each of them and tie them to the roll cage. $2/each. Not beautiful but very functional.

I've seen prettier wraps that wrap the whole thing but you can't beat my solution on price.

My wife made me two black canvas wraps with velcro that I put on the rear roll cage arms. The look like the softtop and work very well.

I simply ran the belts underneath the rear rollcage pads.

I found some heavy duty rubber band type things with a little plastic T on one end of the loop. I wrap them around the rear roll bar and use two on each side. They work great and actually look pretty good too. Cannot remeber the brand name of these but I bought them at Fred Meyer here in Portland.
Cost about $4 for a 4 pack.

Put the top back on. ha ha couldn't resist, if you don't use them use some zipties, small and descreet, just not good if you use them often.

I will take a photo of the device that I made (mainly my wife made). It works very well and looks like it came from the factory.

I borrowed some "scrunchies" from my daughter. The girls use them for field hockey and lacrosse. I took a nice green pair with lacrosse sticks on them and they work great for me.

Just run them under your roll cage pads and buckle them through the seat.

Fastex buckles and webbing from your local REI work pretty well too.
