1. A safety belt positioning system, comprising:
a first anchor disposed adjacent an upper portion of a seat back and selectively positionable on a first axis;
a second anchor disposed adjacent a lower portion of the seat back and selectively positionable on a second axis, wherein the second anchor is configured to be selectively coupled to the first anchor at a first distance from the first anchor for joint positioning of the first anchor and the second anchor in respect to the seat back; and
a third anchor disposed adjacent the lower portion of the seat back and selectively positionable on the second axis,
wherein the third anchor is configured to be selectively coupled to the second anchor at a second distance from the second anchor for joint positioning of the second anchor and the third anchor independent of a position of the first anchor and in respect to the seat back, and
wherein the first anchor, the second anchor, and the third anchor are jointly positionable in respect to the seat back when the second anchor is coupled to the first anchor at the first distance and when the third anchor is coupled to the second anchor at the second distance.
