Default Fake TAKATA harness !

there's a lot of these floating around... especially on ebays etc... please take a good look and dont get fooled... buying fake safety gears is just plain suicidal....

REAL

A genuine Takata Harness (Made in Japan) has FOUR (4) cross stitches where it sews together. As shown in the following pictures (Taken from the Offical Takata website).

real latch



real lock piece



real end hooks



FAKE

The FAKE Takata Harnesses are almost the same in everyway. They still have the FIA labels etc... the only difference is the cross stitching. The FAKES have SEVEN (7) Cross Stitches. As seen in the following photos.

also, the expiry date on the fakes are almost always 2010..




take a look at your harness, and see what you got...

also, all the new current belts just say "TAKATA" on the belt. "Takata Corporation" is no longer on the belts under the logo. It is on some of the older generation ones tho but they all expire before 2010 if i recall at this point
