CJ 7 Rear seat belts help

Hi everyone, I'm sure this has been answered but I couldn't find what I have been searching for. Any incite would help tremendously...
I have an 86 CJ 7, I just purchased and installed a YJ family style roll bar and want to get a three point chest/lap style seat belt so that I can put a child seat in the back safely for my 2 yr old. I went to buy a set off a YJ from a local used Jeep dealer but noticed that the old belt will still pull out slack even after I pull the belt all the way out and let the slack back in. New seat belts will not let you pull out any slack after pulling the whole length of the belt out and setting it where you need it for the child seat.(hopefully this made sense) Any suggestions would help. Will any new set of 3 point belts work so that I can have that extra safety feature?
Also I have seen a small amount of DIY "LATCH" systems (not on a CJ but an older car) retrofitted. Has anyone done this and does it work well if so?
Any visuals would be great.

Thanks again all!

I think you are talking about an automatic locking retractor feature. I would think most newer cars have them, but you would need to check the mfg to see which ones do. Just my thought, I would never buy a used seatbelt. When I took my CJ apart, I cut the old belts (still working) but after 30 years, would rather have new ones when I re-install them.

That is probably correct. I didn't know the correct term. Can I ask where you got you're belts from?
Thank you

I will get mine from Quadratec more than likely, but haven't really looked for them as I am still in tear-down mode on the frame and body for a few months.
