And once you have your aftermarket UTV harness or 4-point seat belt installed, you’ll likely be wanting to delete that annoying stock seat belt sensor. Sure you can just plug your old seat belt in and run it behind your seat, but there are other options out there. You can buy a Seat Belt Sensor Override device that also doubles as a beer opener, or you can open the buckle up and tie wrap the switch closed — free and you don’t have to deal with the seat belt being behind you. Alternatively, you can also clip the small wire going to the seat belt buckle and connect the two wires together with a scotch lock. Simply cut the wire, twist the live ends together, and tape it up, it’s that simple. At the end of the day, though, safety is a must. And while it may be annoying or cumbersome to always be wearing a UTV seat belt or Can-am Defender harness, the trade-off is worth it. Because should the unthinkable happen — and sadly it often does — you surely want to minimize as much risk as possible, taking fate into your own hands and living to ride another day!
