seat belt, gusset?

I know a little extra does not hurt, but is it needed?
I am in the process of a complete jeep build. I have built, but not burnt in yet rollcage with all seat tie ins and the whole works. I probably will make little triangle type gussets on each side of it regardless of the replies. My question is would they be really needed?
The material is 1.5" .120 wall hrew, and the tab is tacked to a 1/8 wall 3/4x3/4, that is offset knotched into the bottom half of the tube.

In my opinion is it keeps your butt in the chair when the shizznizzle hit the fan it cant be overbuilt.I would probably run the flat plate all the way up to the round tube also.Then the flat plates and the 3/4 square would both be welded to the round tube just in case one of the welds fail.Alittle extra weld never hurt anyone!

I would put two chassis tabs (double shear) mounted directly to the subframe instead of that small piece of square tubing you have there. I do not think a gusset on the seat belt mounts are necessary as they should not see any horizontal load.

You can see how I did my seatbelt tabs in this photo:

98 Sahara, hp44/hp60, warn 5x5.5 premium hub conversion, 4.88, arb's, hydro assist, RE 4.5 SF /w 3.5 springs, Novak / Teraflex SS SYE, currie anti-rock, JKS 1.25" BL, 36" bias iroks, PSC Tube fenders /w 3" flare, PSC Ricochet Rockers, custom rear bumper, btf front bumper / winch plate, warn 9.5ti, full cage, TwistedStitch seats, RCI-2161a fuel cell

I agree with this, unless you need the seat belt attach point further aft... in that case gusset the crap out of it and you'll be fine. Think of the way the load is applied to that arrangement you've got there... It is has some leverage right at the weld joint... not really ideal, but fixable with gussets.

If you need them in that location, keep em right where you tacked them and add some gussets, OR move them similar to bradleyfitz picture shows.

I do need them there for belt angles. Next build I will have the seat tie in bars back a little further. For this time gussets it will be.
Thank you for the replies
