What is the general attitude towards anchoring a safety harness on a rollbar? Is there a specific height that a harness should be anchored at in relation to the seat or driver's shoulders?

Been browsing the Summit catalog and a lot of the safety harnesses appear to be able to be mounted on a rollbar. ???

Joel, <u>please</u> PM me on this.
I'll be at the track all day Sunday, but will respond when I get home.
Thanks,
Jeff

Most competition shoulder belts mount to the roll bar - or more correctly, to the harness bar portion of the roll bar. The angle of the belts as they leave your shoulder is critical. See https://www.sparcousa.com/resourceFiles/16.pdf for guidelines.

Thanks Eric, that's a great resource. If not already "sticky posted" around here somewhere...it should be.
