Cabriolet 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. The Brey-Krause
Harness Mount supported the loads specified by the National Highway Traffic
Safety Admin. DOT for upper torso restraints in all automobiles. Tensile tests
performed by an independent lab. Certain power seats may interfere with
installation of floor brackets. Please contact us for alternate part if
type 304, stainless steel. Finish is Powdercoated in durable black
wrinkle-finish. The bars weighs 16lbs.
Fits in the 996 Cabriolet & 997 Cabriolet/Coupe with Bose Speakers. Installation
is to the seat belt mounts & seat track hardware. The bar is designed to allow
enough seat travel for tall drivers.
