Where can I buy racing harness with chest clip?

I want to install a seat belt harness bar using my stock seats. I read somewhere that you need to have a chest clip on the harness or they keep falling like a loose bra on a woman. Where can I buy harnesses with these? Do I even need the chest clips with stock seats or will they work fine w/o them? 4 or 5 point harness, doesnt matter, Im open to either...

If I use the stock seats they dont have the holes up top for the belts to go through like in your pic to hold them in place. So they will slide down off your shoulders to the side. If there is a chest clip, then the shoulder straps would be connected and not allow the shoulder straps to slide off your shoulders. I saw them online but I cant find them now for some reason. Also I dont want to buy some cheap harnesses and regret it if I crash during Auto X, or Drags...

Street Legal

Check and see if these are ok for street use in your state.

I'd browse around https://www.pegasusautoracing.com/ or Racer Wholesale- Racing Safety Equipment or http://www.summitracing.com/ You should find what you need there.

As for street use, I would not use the harness on the street. When I get a harness mounted in my car, my plan is to use eye bolts this time around so I can just clip in the race harness when needed. Also, for the shoulder harness, you will want a harness bar; mounting too low is dangerous & likely won't pass tech anywhere that is paying attention.

That's how I started out. Then I was educated by more knowledgeable guys at the local autox. I figured I didn't want broken collarbones in the unlikely event of an incident. That car had a rear strut tower bar that made a nice mount point--put the shoulder harnesses are a more acceptable level. The lap belts went under the stock bolts, but I'd prefer to swap to eyebolts this time around; just saw a New Edge car this weekend with that setup & it looked like it worked well.

I got the idea of putting it on the rear seat bolts because other guys at the auto x were runnin em like that. If I had the money to of gotten a roll cage then yes I would of ran em that way

Corbeau Mustang Harness Bar (05-13) at LRS - Free Shipping!

This is what i am looking at buying. Hopefully from AmericanMuscle.com

I dont think ill need the 5 point because auto X up here is done at Fort Devens so there really isnt anything i would hit to make me slide out of it. And the price is pretty good...

That's the bar I'm looking at.

For autox the point of the harness is to keep you frimly in place in the seat. That way you can concentrate on driving the car & not bracing yourself in the seat. You knees will thank you at the end of the day. Been there, done that. I prefer the 5-point as the anti-sub strap helps keep the lap belts in place & not pull up from the shoulder straps. Remember, you want it tight to do its job.

I'm also looking at these for easy clip-in mounting for the harness: Harness Clip Set (Both Seats)
