FDTS Ltd can refurbish your Britax belts. They can’t do much with the lift fasteners but the other fitments can either be replated or swapped for good examples. The problem is the webbing. There were two suppliers of webbing to Britax. One is still going but the other was bought out and then the looms were scrapped.

The usual Silver grey Britax webbing is no longer available but they can supply silver grey webbing of the pattern supplied by the other original supplier. This has a pebble effect rather than the transverse striped appearance. It is, however, up to present specifications.

They are most helpful.

I recently had some Irvin belts re-webbed by FDTS. They couldn't have been more helpful and did an excellent job.
