Jk adjustable harness bar

i recently received a sponsorship from Corbeau and wanted to design a BOLT IN fully adjustable harness bar for my new 4 bucket setup. I spent a few weeks fabbing this concept and couldn't be happier with the results. it uses the existing seatbelt mounts and can adjust 4 ways up down forward and back. The mount is rock solid, will adjust to any driver size and looks bad ***. The reason i wanted it adjustable is so it will ALWAYS fit securly behind the seats and there is no movement when bouncing around on the rocks. also you can pull pins disconnect it and lay down the seat if needed. let me know what you think.

Looks great. So it follows the seats as they are adjusted? Only criticism would be it looks like you could maybe hit your head on it. Cool design!

That is totally awesome! Fantastic work. One question, though, are those grade 5 bolts? I plead ignorance, but I kind of always assumed I should use grade 8 for seat and belt mounts. Is grade 5 enough?

Two things if you want to pimp products buy a vendors membership, its not fair to the paying vendors on the site who pay the extra to sell products.

Second with any 5 point or similar belts does this product meet the 20* safety angle. If its moves with the seat can it still safe within the "safe" angle of operation?
If not peoples splines are at risk under a hard impact or rollover and I buy far not being the safety police just asking some important questions as I have set of a lot of 5 points over the years.

So if he mentions a brand name once, he's pimping a product?
Edit: Ignore this...didn't see the last part of his post... sorry

He ended his post with "pm if your interested in one yourself."

He also joined the day this thread started and only has 1 post. That.

Just be carful, taking this idea that might look good from a few Pics here on this site. But to me a pivot point with a safety belt ( over the shoulders ) can be more dangerous than the safety its designed to do.

In other words just cause it looks safe it may not. Read up on how a true 5 point works or is intended to work, and then lay this out based on this idea and make sure it stays within the safety specs.
Or not, its not my back/spline at risk.

Nice looks but.....there's a few items that would be questionable based on leverages and stopping points.

In an accident head on hit I'd be concerned with the harness bar and leverage since the pivot off that spot and its bolted to a upper pivot.....
Can't see that taking heavy load, heim is a pivot the seat belt upper is also bolted to allow forward backward movement.....
The rock hard bolt on style is hard mounted and the curve is away from occupants in a head on it digs into the pillars with no rotational or pivotal mounts......

I did NDT and failure points or discontinuities in metal structures or design so its habit to look at something and load bearing capacity. Not knocking your design solid work but has a pivot at the highest point and highest load bearing mount...

I wouldn't run it....
