Proposal from Spain on behalf of the Technical Services Group (TSG) on UN R129 to require that the shoulder strap positioner, if any, and the buckle open independently of each other in order to satisfy the requirement that the buckle can be opened by a single action. Currently, if the shoulder strap positioner has not been opened, it is possible that the buckle cannot be opened.
