Default Harness anchor point

Evening

ive got some seats and harness's for a bargain off Ebay, not collected them yet, but the shoulder straps look fairly long. (infact they drape on the floor in the pic)

might not come to this, but would it be acceptable to have the shoulder anchor points on the bottom back chassis rail, instead of the roll bar? like the sides are if you get what i mean

any help would be much appreciated

Cheers Will

I think not - there is a page in the DVLA /DVSA manual which explains seat belts and mounting points and (from memory) they have to run between horizontal and 45 deg down from the shoulder of the person wearing them. At IVA they have a contraption that rests on the seat and measures the belt angles to make sure they comply.

Yup, I get what you mean. Horizontal with the shoulder down must not be greater than 45 degrees!! Ballcocks!!

May just sell them and buy some more in that case

Cheers Will

I did not think it mattered where the anchor was as long as the height and forward angles are ok.???
