5 point harness attachment

Well we finally did it. Bought some mastercraft seats and 5 point harnesses. I am not understanding the attachment points for the lap belts and the sub belt. The shoulder belts had a place on my roll cage to attachment. Any help or some picts would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Research the correct location of the shoulder straps on harnesses. If you get it wrong, a busted spine and paralysis / death WILL occur.

For locating into the floor, use the correct eye bolts and clip the harness into them.

Same with the anti-submarine strap [the one between the legs]

If you are not using the exisitng seat belt holes, back up the mounting points with load distribution plates like these.

What he said. An incorrect install is very dangerous. Here's some good info:

i totally disagree. when you buckle into a harness that is incorrectly installed you will vaporize. my buddies-cousin's brother saw it once.

just know that using harnesses such as those on the street are a real pain. you will get tired of it quickly when you cant even reach the radio or anything else. they make some that act like factory belts that would help. many people leave the stock ones in place for daily use.

I have Simpson harnesses with Corbeau Baja seats and I mounted the lap belts together with the rear seat tabs. Most suspension seats have vertical mounting tabs with the same dimensions. Ideally the lap belts should be a little further out but my buggy chassis is roughly the same size interior wise as a Rhino so mounting the belts on the seat tabs was the only way. My sub belt mounts to a tab on the front seat frame bar and my shoulder belts mount to my mid bar behind the seats.

thanks for the replies. I will study the links that you all gave me and if I still can't figure it out I'll check back again. We are planning on leaving the regular belts in place for everyday use. We just wanted the 5 points for off road. In my way younger days I rolled my cj5 and I would not be here if it wasn't for the good seats and harnesses. Thanks again for the help.

Are you planning to use this on the streets or is this a off-road only? If it's for both then the harness safety belting is not legal unless they have a DOT rating. And it has to have that taged on the belting it's self.

A 89 yj with a 4.0 aw4 sye out of an 92xj. Now the hard part is done time to get it up in the air just a bit. Working on 8.8 with 3.73 and lsd for the rear. and new D30 hp with 3.73 .
For those who have not figured this out I'm old school but can handle the new too.
