Seat Belts - retrieving them

We have a Fleetwood Bounder with dinette and couch seat belts. These both make a bed. It seems that they make these two jack knives extra difficult to retrieve the seat belts after you pushed them down. Any tips to make them easy to retrieve?

You could tie a small rope to the ends of the seatbelts before you push them down, use the rope to pull them back up

I started linking them then just leaving the slack above the cushion but it always finds its way down. Since all the furniture jackknives, the belts fall into the hole when you make up the beds.

It's likely that the seat belts fell down near the storage bays. I have this issue. Have to get my arms down in the storage bay and push them back up through the cracks in the sofa.

My thought would be the same as "RV Wizard". Tie a nice cord or ribbon type material to them and possibly velco the cord/ribbon to the seat back frame or back of the cushion where you can easily reach it.

I have the same problem. I am thinking of velcro with adhesive back. One small piece on the belt on the other small piece on the bottom back rest. It might come loose jogging down the road but it is pretty tough stuff.
