Schroth's FE Cam lock features a slightly different release actuator which allows for use on public roads in North America. An orange push button that says "Press" is required so that an EMT arriving at the scene of an accident can instantly know how to release a restraint. The internals of the cam lock are the same, with the greaseless release mechanism. The only change is the actuator.
Note: These Cams very rarely get attached to a shoulder belt. Cam Locks fixed to shoulders may not be in stock. 13.3 Cam Locks are special order.
The patented SCHROTH RFRTM rotary (cam lock) buckle operates with a carbon fi ber reinforced gear system. Since it operates grease free it is insensitive to dust and other environmental infl uences. RFRTM the abbreviation for Regressive Force Release, means the release force is reduced during release operation rather than increasing as seen with all other rotary buckle products. Therefore the RFRTM buckle meets the stringent FIA required release forces without the need of an extended lever. The patented actuator with the recessed lever helps to avoid the risk of accidental release. The durable RFRTM rotary buckle is approximately 30 percent lighter than other products, yet it is still one of the strongest in the market. For FIA and ECE-R 16.04 (street legal) approved racing harnesses (FE models for Rally driving) it is available as a push button type buckle.
