The E36 harness mount bar has been tested and certified by
an independent lab to handle the types of forces required by the National
Highway Traffic Safety Admin. DOT and SAE J385 Rev. MAR 95, Motor Vehicle Seat
Belt Anchorages-Performance Requirements. The E36 harness mount bar properly
locates and supports racing shoulder harnesses relative to the driver. In the
case of an accident, it helps protect the driver's shoulders and spine. The
harness guides also prevent excessive shifting and fatigue of the driver during
the high G loads of cornering and braking. Our bars are easy to install and
remove, use only existing holes and mounting points, and will not damage the car
in any way.
Strength requirements for harness mounts are considerably greater than those for
harness guide bars since they must support the entire load applied to the belts.
Bar is mounted to the rear side lap belt mounting points via brackets that are
installed once and remain in the car. Support rods are attached to the ends of
the main tube while the other end attaches to car at the front lap belt mounting
points located at the door sills.
Bar is designed to allow enough seat travel for tall
drivers. After initial installation the bar can be removed and reattached in
about 15 minutes. (Seat brace kit available soon.).
