Default Shoulder Belt Question

I have a 92 vert. My question has to do with the shoulder belt. Currently if I pull on them they do not lock like newer cars. I always assumed that if you "yanked" them hard it would lock in place and stop you from flying through the window. Is there something wrong with my shoulder belt or is this just how they functioned back in 92?

Thanks!

There is a type of intertia switch in the mechanism/retractor of the belt. It will only lock under force. Take the car out, slam on the brakes, it should lock the belt.
