Default '96 seatbelt jammed,.how to fix.

I was putting the seatbelt on and I pulled it a bit too hard which caused it
to lock, then I pulled it again very quickly after the lock and it jammed ie
I couldn't get it to release, no matter what I did, including stopping the
car and pulling on it a few times.

So I quickly unclipped the pillar plastic cover to reveal the return and
seatbelt lock mechanism.It came good when I simply leaned down and pushed
the wheel with the belt wound around it in the same direction to withdraw
the belt back into the wheel. This was met with slight sticking,..but a
little pressure caused it to come free and retract. I than tested the belt
by jerking it (as would accur in an accident) and it locked. Once presure
was released it reeled the belt back in,...problem fixed.
