Yes, every one I strap on is "used" :-) My objection is that every salvage yard I have been to leaves the cars out in the yard with stuff like seat belts still in the cars. Typically much os the glass is broken and large parts of the car are open to the environment. They get rain, snow, raw ultraviolet, etc day after day - all the factors that lead to thread and plastic deterioration. When you buy one used, you don't know what conditions it has been kept in. An exception would be if you went to the yard yourself an pulled it from a car where you can see/judge that it was protected from the environment.
