An assembly of a driver airbag module (102) and a steering wheel (104) having an airbag module including a housing (106) and a plurality of loop members (108) extending from the housing (106) and a steering wheel (104) having an armature (120) with a center or hub portion (122) onto which the airbag module (102) is attached. The armature (120) has hook members (110a, 110b, 110c), each hook member having a hook void (190). The hook void (190) is defined by a space above one or two base members (160a, 160b) and below a retaining member (180). The base member (160a, 160b) has a shallow ramped surface extending upwardly to an end wall and the retaining member (180) has a hook surface above the ramped surface and extending to the end wall. The loop member (108) is retained in the hook void (190) between the hook surface (186) and the ramped surface (168).

The present invention relates to an airbag for a motor vehicle. The airbag comprises a gas cushion (1) which is formed from at least two layers of fabric and which is brought on inflation from a folded or rolled state into an unfolded state. The at least two layers of fabric are connected to each other at connection points to form inflated cushion portions (3) and non-inflated cushion portions (4), and the connection points have linear connection points (5) and rounded connection points (6). The linearly extending connection points (5) are arranged at an angle of 45 relative to the threads (7, 8) forming the layers of fabric, or at an angle deviating slightly there from that does not impair the tear strength of the connection points when the gas cushion (1) is in the inflated state.

An airbag cushion assembly (10, 100) has an airbag cushion (12) and an inflator (20, 120). The airbag cushion has a plurality of inflatable chambers including a primary chamber (11, 111) configured to receive inflation gas and one or more additional chambers (14, 16, 114, 115, 116) for receiving inflation gas from the primary chamber (11, 111). The inflator (20, 120) is in communication with, or open to, the gas inlet of the primary chamber (11, 111). One or more of the additional chambers has one or more one-way gas flow check valves (30, 130) for receiving inflation gases into the chamber and preventing the received gases from back flowing to maintain the one or more additional chambers at full inflation when the airbag cushion is inflated and loaded.

An airbag (10) has a first tier of material (11) and a second tier of material (12). The second tier (12) at least partially overlaps the first tier (11). The first and second tiers (11, 12) are joined together by one or more rows of a sealed stitch seam (20). The sealed stitch seam (20) has a plurality of thread stitches (30) extending from one exterior side (14) through to the opposite exterior side (16) of the at least partially overlapped first and second tiers (11, 12). The thread stitches (30) are coated in each exterior side (14, 16) with a seam coating material (40). The seam coating material (40) is either applied over the stitches (30) on one exterior side (14 or 16) and flows through to the opposite side (14 or 16) through thread holes (52) formed upon the creation of the seam (20) or is applied to both exterior sides (14, 16) and flows into the thread holes (52) to encapsulate and seal the seam (20).
