Inspection and Verification

The ELR WMS is operated by rapid acceleration of the webbing. Once operated, it causes a locking pawl to be engaged thus locking the retractor.

Webbing payout is prevented in the same manner as VMS.

Inspection and Verification

1. Verify the customer concern.

2. Visually inspect for obvious signs of mechanical and electrical damage.
