Seatbelt Warning with Backseat Dog Fix

I though this might help others. I have an 80lb Golden Retriever and when he's riding in the back seat I get seat belt warnings displayed on the left of the dash display. This is really annoying when it overlays on the navigation.

I found this buckle insert fix on Thingiverse and 3D printed three in PLA for the backseat. These are much smaller than the metal ones you can find on Amazon so they don't dig into my dog when he's lying down. I added a ribbon so I can pull them out easily when not needed. I have a dog cover so they aren't normally visible.

Kudos to the designer.

Interesting. Never thought about that. My golden is an English and only weighs about 60 pounds. He has never set off the alert. (And yeah, dog blanket for sure!) That long,
pure white fur goes nicely with the black Alcantara!
