What is a "Pretensioner" style seat belt typically used in late model vehicles.
A "Pretensioner style seat belt is like a valiant but tragic hero. This seat belt sacrifices its life in a accident, in order to save yours. The pretensioner mechanism uses an explosive charge to drive a concealed piston when sensors detect the abrupt deceleration of an accident. The piston, in turn, rapidly drives the spool around which the webbing strap of a seat belt is wrapped. That incredibly fast retraction of the webbing removes the slack from the belt instantly. This extra seat belt "pretension, moments prior to the full force of impact, pulls the bodies of the driver and front-seat passenger firmly into their seats. The positions them so as to receive the maximum protection benefit of the front airbags. it also helps prevent the unfortunate phenomenon car crash-ologist call "submarining." That's when the momentum causes by the crash jerks a victim's body under his or her lap belt and sends it careening forward below the dash.
