What do you do with your jump seat seat belts?

I know it may sound kind of stupid but what do you guys and gals do with your seat belts for your jump seats and your middle seats in the front to keep them neat and yet useable at the same time? Now I have velcro wrapped around all three of them to keep them neat but whenever somone gets in the back they think it is too hard to take off the velcro to use the belts. I dont have people in the back of my truck a lot but when I do I want something to make the belts easily accessible and yet keep them neat and out of the way when they are not in use.

Thx

I think you must have a 2dr....I got a 4dr.....

My backseats are long gone...but when they were in there, the female end was in the quarter doors, and the male was on a retractor...hidden i believe. My center seat belts were zip tied away up under the seats when I had the stock 60/40's. I now have buckets, and I eliminated those center seat belts.

The male end retracts and the female is hidden until the seat is opened on a 2dr SC. Are your retractors broken?

I turned my 60/40 into 40/40's so I don't have the front center belt anymore.

My bad, yea I have a 2dr but my male end is not on a retracter. Its an 06 so maybe they changed the design but the male part is just kind of let to sit out in the back. My female end sticks out about 5 inchs form a hole near the jump seat. There are no retracters at all for either the male or female ends.
I thought maybe I could get some sort of aftermarket retracter but I have not come across one yet.

My 2008 B4000 does not have a retractor. They look like something out of the Mercury Grand Marquis parts bin. They are airplane style...pull on the loose end of the strap to tighten.

That being said, I keep mine rolled up on itself with a rubber band around them to hold them in place. I know a lot of people remove them, but I like to have a place to put people who **** me off and the rear jumpseats work perfectly. They really don't take up that much space to me. I've got a cargo organizer back there and everything and I've never wanted the extra space bad enough to eliminate the ability to haul people in a pinch. To each their own
