Not worth the risk. Those brackets are engineered for 2 and I hope you don't get into a collision with a kid seated there.

hi, down here in south san antonio us mexicans are usually short n heavy, i have had 2 adults back there. one 5-8 one 5-9, both pushing 240 lbs, i hope that when i have 3 small kids back there and each kid at 100 lbs or less, that it should be a problem on the belt brackets, if it could hold 500 lbs, it should not have a problem with 300 lbs. then again i stuff 3 others in the truck also

well, thats why i dont sit back there

well i live in an area that is not up on the list of respectable neighborhoods, my daugher invites the little girls from across the street to go, becuase her brothers n uncles are always outside getting high n drunk:(, i dont think she minds sitting on the middle hump for a little bit (20 min) to get away and go see a bunch of other camaro getting together.
it not for a long trips, but for short quick trip once or twice a month.

thanks for all the input

Makes, sense. Not sure why GM didn't inlclude it with the vehicle. Better to have a seatbelt on than nothing at all. And, this idea is for a young child not a grown adult.
There are numerous times when you may have 2 adults and a child in the back seat. This 3rd. belt option is a great idea.

Just had a thought to share; I would guess that other GM vehicles use the same belts and styles, and most likely have a centre belt. ie - Cadilac CTS, or Escalade. Could go to a GM dealer find a vehicle that has the same belt styles, and ask them for the part number order it or find it online for a cheaper price.

Jajajaja, Good one.

On a recent trip to Vegas i had 3 girls in the back seat, my wife and 2 friends, they didn't complained, but this would have come in handy.
I guess not paying for gas or hotel contributed to not complaining.

You know how we Mexicans do.
