    You'd think it would be common sense, but...

    I'm *astounded* at some of the unsafe installations I've seen, 
including some real doozy's in the pages of QST.  Usually they involve 
someone placing a device or the cabling in the deployment path of the 
airbags.  I recall one picture I saw on the web where a guy had actually 
glued the mount for his GPS to the dashboard - and the "SRS" logo was 
visible right underneath it.
