Office chair seatbelt   (+22, -2)  [vote for, against]

My office chair provides insufficient gription (q.v.) at the chair-seat/trousers interface with the result that I have a tendency to slide forward in the seat, resulting in poor posture. This could be remedied by a simple 3-point seatbelt, a feature which would be welcomed also by office-chair racing enthusiasts.

They have these for wheelchairs, could prolly be modified to fit onto an office chair. Ebay has them too. The "universal" version seems more promising. Here's an example from amazon [wellton1950, Oct 24 2008]

bun for 'office-chair racing enthusiasts'. However, this is a slippery slope. I want a roll cage. I guess I already have side impact bars...

Don't many office workers already keep a little "belt" hidden in their desk drawer?

I like the idea of office trains, where as we all link up together, feet to backside, and roll together. Definately need seatbelts when doing this! +

Yes, well, before you get all excited, get one of those old B/W movies featuing The Keystone Cops. Whtch what happens when they're all being dragged along behind a vehicle, and it corners sharply ......

Cops may represent law, but Conservation of Momentum is the Law ......

I like this idea too... posture is hard!

Perhaps I am in need of restraint.

bun, but only if you promise we can race.

That's not a bad idea - it would fit in the same clothing range as my "Retroreflective Pinstripes" (link) - or it could be a service, offered on the street, similar to a shoeshine stand ("Shoeshine! Fancy a shoeshine sir? Latex! Latex! Paint the arse of your trousers with little dots of latex, sir? Come on, that looks like a very shiny suit sir" - etc., etc.).
