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 996 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.
A mount really can't be relied on unless it has been tested to support the loads
required by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
