Technically you shouldn't alter the factory seat restraints in any way, or you risk losing the protection(*) that the manufacturer built in. Same thing goes for installing infant/toddler/booster seats, which unfortunately TONS of people affix with aftermarket gadgets. Those pads you bought probably were never crash-tested, and do not have to pass any federal safety standards since they are an aftermarket product. That being said, a cloth pad on your shoulder is probably not going to affect the mechanics of your seatbelt in a crash situation... but you never know.

P.*. And they do look wicked-cool too.
