Safety System

The B&D Independence Passive Interlock is designed with your safety in mind. It is standard on all Comfort 61 Transfer Seat Bases.

The Passive Interlock ensures that the Transfer Seat Base is returned to the driving position, which allows the Seat Belt and Air Bag Systems to function as designed.

Once the vehicle is in operation the Interlock prevents the Transfer Seat Base from moving accidentally.

For your comfort, the driving position offers a range of crash tested positions. This range includes:

  • Any up/down position
  • Between 0″ and 4” back from the full forward position

The Passive Interlock System includes an override switch placed below the switch box which is mounted on the Transfer Seat Base.

In the event of an emergency, the override switch can be activated to move your Transfer Seat Base when the vehicle ignition is on, allowing you to readjust your position or relocate the Transfer Seat Base to a transferring position.

An audible indicator will sound during the duration of the override’s use; the audible indicator will also sound to alert you when the Transfer Seat Base is not within the Driving position.
