Just taken out the front seat belts of van,put on floor and one has exploded.Do they have to have this charge device fitted ,or can they have a standard one .

The belts have an explosive pre-tensioner to pull the belt tight immediately prior to an impact. You could just carry on using the belt as it is but obviously if you are unfortunate enough to have a crash you won't have the benefit of the extra protection the pre- tensioner provides.

The choice is yours.
