Solution for Hard To Buckle Passager Seat-belt

My wife has been complaining since we took delivery of our P90D about the difficulty of buckling her passenger side seat-belt. The problem is that the seat buckle receptacle is almost vertical and that makes it awkward to insert the belt buckle. There is a simple solution to this problem which is to push an object in the backside gap of the buckle receptacle as shown here:


I found that this bicycle grip available at Sears for $9.00 fits perfectly into the gap and keeps the seat buckle receptacle at an angle that is much easier to access:


The grip is smaller at one end which allows it to be inserted about half way into the opening. The gray and black color matches the interior very well and it looks like it is just part of the seat.
