There are THREE LEVELS of Federal Regulations that this company does NOT adhere to...furthermore they are petty complainers who instead of doing what is RIGHT they instead complain against people and companies they don't even know who do OBEY FEDERAL LAWS.  

Here are the Three Federal laws which when complied with cost the company around $40,000 and about 3-6 months to accomplish:

  1. Federal Regulations dictate that those who repair or rebuild seat belts MUST be licensed with the Federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms & Explosives before they can even house the explosives used to repair seat belts. 
  2. Federal Law then requires that the Licensed Company has their business location certified as a place of business that can legally house and hold explosives.  The CERTIFIED SAFE FOR EXPLOSIVES COSTS >$3,000.
  3. Federal Law states that the business must have a Certified Explosives Expert to perform an explosives test on each of the SPECIFIC TYPES OF SEAT BELTS...and then it is legal for that company to do business as a seat belt repair company.

When these three Federal Laws are complied with, then and only then can the company begin to advertise, and sell services as a seat belt repair service.  Then the company must abide by all SHIPPING LAWS...

  1. A Certified Seat Belt Repair Company must then follow all Dept of Transportation laws contained in CFR 49 which state that the company must be certified by the Three Federal Laws.
  2. A Certified Seat Belt Repair Company must then have a Federally Certified HAZMAT response insurance company
  3. A Certified Seat Belt Repair Company must properly label each item
  4. A Certified Seat Belt Repair Company CANNOT use any of the following Postal Carriers:
    • USPS
    • UPS

Here are the links to ACTUAL FEDERAL REGULATIONS:

SEE USPS REGULATION FOR CLASS 9 HAZMAT MAIL (SHIPPING ILLEGAL) 

SEE DOT REGULATION FOR SHIPPING HAZARDOUS EXPLOSIVES (SHIPPING ILLEGAL) 

SEE FEDEX REGULATION FOR SHIPPING SEAT BELTS: 

SEE UPS REGULATION FOR SHIPPING SEAT BELTS (SHIPPING ILLEGAL)

Company Claims they are Compliant

AUTHOR: KNOW_THE_LAW_OBEY_THE_LAW - ()

POSTED: Sunday, April 06, 2014

After several text messages with people with made-up names from this company, they have stated that they have completed all of the Federal legal requirements to be in business using, storing and shipping explosives.

If this is now the truth, then ATF doesn't know their business.  This industry is one where companies must be licensed in seat belt repairs with the proper licensing, permits and credentials for housing, holding, repairing and shipping/receiving explosives.

This is not a business for those not committed to following the law.

This addendum is here to "clear the air" and allow for time to tell...

Customers, Look at this SIMPLE GOVERMENT PAMPHLET

AUTHOR: KNOW_THE_LAW_OBEY_THE_LAW - ()

POSTED: Wednesday, April 30, 2014

THIS IS FOR THE CUSTOMER.  KNOW THAT IF YOU ARE NOT RECEIVING YOUR SEATBELTS IN THE SAME WAY THAT THIS GOVERNMENT PAMPHLET READS THAT THE COMPANY YOU ARE DEALING WITH IS LYING.

READ THIS SIMPLE GOVERNMENT PAMPHLET DESIGNED FOR YOU, THE CUSTOMER. <<

IF YOU ORDER AND RECEIVE SEAT BELTS FROM ANY COMPANY AND THESE DOCUMENTS AND THESE HAZMAT LABELS ARE NOT PART OF WHAT YOU SEE WHEN YOU RECEIVE YOUR ITEM, YOU ARE BEING LIED TO...PLAIN AND SIMPLE, AND THE COMPANY IS DOING BUSINESS ILLEGALLY.

Companies that do comply with Federal Regulations don't play games with lies and deceit, we spend the time and money to get certified.  We regularly meet with the Federal Regulators and we comply with regulations that dictate handling, and shipping of explosives.

I am a contractor in the field of automobile safety: nothing written in these reports are/were fraudulent or done maliciously. Federal Laws dictate the requirements for compliance, and I am NOT making anything up but know by experience and by testing that the business, Safety Restore, has, in fact, not been in compliance with Federal Laws in the past. FACT (just because they were not shut down, does not mean they were doing business legally).

At the time of the original posting, Safety Restore, DID NOT COMPLY WITH FEDERAL REGULATIONS GOVERNING TRANSPORTATOIN & MAILING OF HAZMAT.

Safety Restore may have begun to comply with these laws in the last couple of months since the initial report, but this company claims that they were in compliance from day one. This is in fact, legally NOT TRUE.

YOU, THE CUSTOMER, DESERVE TO KNOW THE LAW, AND TO KNOW WHAT IS RIGHT.

IF SAFETY RESTORE IS IN COMPLIANCE, FANTASTIC...

...BUT THEY WERE NOT BEFORE.

YOU NOW HAVE THE INFORMATION NEEDED TO KNOW IF THEY ARE ARE FOLLOWING THE DOT GUIDANCE LINK AND YOU DON'T HAVE TO TRUST MY WORD OR THEIRS

THE SAFETY OF POSTAL SERVICE WORKERS AND FOR THE WORKERS AT ANY SEAT BELT REPAIR SHOP DERSERVE TO BE SAFE. THAT IS WHY THERE ARE LAWS, TO PROTECT AND SERVE THOSE WHO DON'T KNOW ANY BETTER.

Dear Competitor, 

Ripoff Report is "by consumers for consumers." You are clearly a competitor, and you are violating multiple cyber laws by publically making all these false accusations. But because this website is for consumers, I will save the time arguing these accusations with you and rather shed some light to the consumers as who this website is originally targeted at.

P.S. Must’ve taken awhile to write this… even the paragraphs are indented properly when the ripoff report clearly states: "DO NOT indent paragraphs."

Dear Consumers, 

This “report” was written by one of our competitors. Safety Restore, Inc. has been licensed to carry out all these repairs (since day 1) and has all the necessary documents to proof it. If you have any concerns whatsoever, we’ll be more than happy to verify any permits or licenses you request.

Sincerely,
Daniel D.
Safety Restore, Inc.
