Not like helmets. Expiration date is from date of manufacture. Five years for many sanctions and three years for others.

You misunderstood my question
When I purschase my new restrains I want ones with the longest FIA certification date
So......when I purchase........what year do I want...... so the vendor does not send me some old stock off the shelf that only has 2-3 years of use available

What brand do you currently have? Some manufacturers will reweb for about half the cost of new.

You answered your question. Get the freshest manufacture dates possible. Belts "expire" based on their manufacture date. The low end is 2 years up to maximum of 5 years depending on sanctioning body and/or what the belts have been subjected to during use. They do not expire based on a certification date as helmets. I.E. the Snell SA rating. See link below for more information.

I have to do the same. Over on Rennlist a similar discussion indicated that Schroth does not offer rewebbing. I'm going to contact suppliers. Since the resolution of the tags is only to the year and its now 2014 I want 2019 tags or 2018 tags at 20% off. Seems reasonable to me.

I bought a set of new FIA one year old for 60% off, still good for 4 years. If stock is old ask for sa steep discount ! Don't buy old SFI as you might only get one year out of them then.

I got my Pyrotect harnesses re-webbed and certified for $65. They turned them around in less than a week.

Crow Enterprizes does the same thing. Problem is, in my experience, it becomes a nuisance to keep sending the belts back every other year. Get a set of fairly priced new FIA belts and you can forget about it for a while. OMP is a good belt that is reasonably priced.

When I was looking, Gforce had the least expensive FIA certified belts.

+1 for GForce. And they reweb their belts too so you don't have to buy new every time.

Checked the G Force site.......from what I found they recert only to SFI......not FIA

Correct me if I am wrong

Does any company reweb/recert belts to FIA?

a couple of the gforce models are FIA and get the 5 year cert out of the box, with the cam lock for <$250. I figure belt are a bit like tires in that they are consumable. don't get me wrong, Im not one to piss away money, my old seat has a back brace installed to stay in compliance, n not have to buy a new one. really, even not considering the reweb effort the FIA gforce are the best value going. ive never rewebbed, Ive just tied all my old belts together and have made a tree swing out back....

must be hard to cinch any belt with t-rex arms...
