Removing Seat Belt Tension Sensors

I am thinking about removing my front seat belts but I am having issues finding what to do with the tension sensors. Its my understanding that if they are left unplugged that the air bag light will go off? I have been wondering if i leave the sensor plugged into the seat belt housing but remove the actual belt if it will go off or not because there will be no tension from the belt. Has anyone taken their seat belts out and found a way to stop the sensors from going off by plugging them or something? I think the 11-14 cars have similar seat belt systems so any general info about those models years would also be much appreciated.

Dont worry I wont drive without a seat belt. My cage is halfway in and my harnesses are on their way here.

I played around with the car some and this is what I found out. The tension sensors set off the air bag failure light if they are not plugged in. This is because they trigger the primer in your seat belt during an accident but cannot do so when they are not plugged in. The seat belt can easily be plugged with a dud head to get rid of the light and sound. The sound from the seat belt not being plugged in can also be muted, directions on how to do so are in the owners manual. So for now I am thinking I am going to leave the belts in until I can find a way to turn off or fake out the tension sensors so the air bag light won't be off if they are not plugged in.
