Seat Belt Convincer

Come by stop at our Schlumberger booth to try out our "Seat Belt Convincer". They will be a lots of fun and activities throughout the day with goodies and prizes to be won.

What is Seat Belt Convincer?
The Seat Belt Convincer is an easy to use educational tool that allows riders to experience forces of a low speed crash to reinforce the benefits of wearing seat belts whenever a vehicle is in motion.

The Convincer is developed to educate the general public of how beneficial the use of seat belts can be even when involved in a low speed collision. It is a very effective tool for safety presentations at community events, drivers education programs, students, or any event where the entertainment and safety education factors associated with the Convincer would be of benefit. It allows the rider to experience the surprising amount of force generated with such low speed collision and to gain respect for the benefit that a seat belt can provide.

The passenger enters the carriage at the top of the slide and buckles into the seat. Once the rider is properly fastened in the seat belt and its fitment is double checked, the operator rotates the lever from the "return" position to the "convince" position. The secured rider slides down the track and collides with the front bumpers, safely experiencing a simulated crash. After impact, the rider exits the machine at the bottom. The Convincer is then returned to the top of the carriage in preparation for the next rider.
