Is it Possible to Separate Rear Seat Belt Receptacles from Each Other?

Hey all,

As the title says, is there anuly way to separate these two buckles while still being able to utilize both of them?

I need the longer one to use with my fixed back drivers seat (to fit through the hole in the bolster) and want to retain the shorter one to use in the back with the quick fit pro behind passenger seat.

I can't tell if that was just a joking/sarcastic answer haha. But I'll give it a shot!

Ended up separating them. Noticed there was a sticker covering this pin like mechanism. Took a drill to it briefly and they became loose. Then took a pry tool and "pop" off it came.

The bonus is the longer strap is just the perfect length for my body. Its just long enough to sit right on my hips after pushing it through the bolster hole and still be comfortable (I can't feel it digging into me whatsoever). Score!
