Title: BELT TONGUE COMPRISING A TORSION BAR
Abstract:
The present invention relates to a belt tongue (1) comprising a tongue body (3) that extends in an insertion direction (2), a clamping element (4) being arranged in the tongue body such that a belt strap (7) guided through a cavity (5) in the tongue body (3) and running through a gap (6) that is formed between the clamping element (4) and the tongue body (3), can be moved though the tongue body (3) in an unstressed free-running position and, in a stressed position brought about by a tensile force that is introduced into the belt strap (7), is clamped on a clamping edge (8) of the cavity (5) by means of the clamping element (4) that is pivotally mounted in the tongue body (3) and that can be pivoted into the cavity (5). A pre-tensioning device exerts a retractive force on the clamping element (4), at least in the stressed position, said force being oriented in the direction of the free-running position of the clamping element (4). The belt tongue is characterised in that the pre-tensioning device is a torsion bar (13) that is non-rotatably secured in the tongue body (3) and non-rotatably connected to the clamping element (4).
