Correct me if I'm wrong, but weren't shoulder restraints introduced to secure a human being's torso from forward thrust? I don't think they were designed to be "loose".

Oh my goodness! I suppose it matters what your definition of loose is.
These devices used by taller folks can be adjusted to whatever looseness you want. Better to be a little loose than strangling your shoulder for hours. Do you think that the belt doesn't have an inch or so slack before it locks into place during a collision?
Good grief.

I consider myself a "Taller Folk" and the shoulder strap does not fit comfortable no matter how I try to adjust. Adding the shoulder strap has helped to the point where Im not constantly trying to readjust on the fly. (consider it not strangling me)
Im flying on blind faith that it will lock in position when there is a collision that activates the "lock" keeping me right where I need to be.

On a side note and I know we are not talking about Race Cars, but to the point made about seatbelts designed not to be loose, In many applications you are strapped to a multi point harness where you do not move even a fraction of a inch.

But I digress My RV does not go even 80MPH

Johnny dog, sorry if my reply was tied to your comment, it was meant to address other comments related to moving mounts and bases.

A sheepskin sleeve for the seatbelt in combo with a clip -mentioned above- to keep the seatbelt from retracting tightly should make things more comfortable.
