These come only as a complete assembly (not inclucing the female end) and include the SRS tensioning device, so aren't exactly cheap. If your only concern is the belt end sliding down and having to go fishing for it, BMW used to use a clip on their seatbelts to serve this purpose (a long time ago, like in the '70's). I believe they are still available. If there is any question re. the integrity of the latch, REPLACE IT!
