Subject: some help on seat belt

I have a 1972 MG Midget Mark III that I've been working on for the last year.  
I do have it running.  My first challenge is to get it to pass inspection.  I 
live in Charlotte, NC and need to have all original pollution control equipment 
on the car.  I have ordered most of those parts together with some seat belts 
from an out-of-town dealer of used parts.

My first problem (I believe there will be many others).

I received 2 retractable seat belts, but they're in a "locked (retracted) 
position.  I can't seem to pull out the belt regardless of how I hold 
the belt housing.  On one side of the belt housing is a number (DAO 120/20  90 
BC), on the other is a slotted screw that appears to have a spring winding 
around it.  The label below this states "DO NOT REMOVE COVER".  I once took 
apart a clock that had the same warning and everything flew apart in my face.  
Obviously, I'm not anxious to do the same with this.  Any help would be 

Bill from Charlotte.
