You don't want to mount harnesses down on the seat bracket... You want to be off at an angle so that your spine doesn't colapse during impact... I'm sure someone with a harness bar or that knows the exact dimensions can chime in here...

Todd - Looks great! I've got a 1 piece aluminium setup for my Festiva about that thick. Been in 2 accidents and never had a problem with them letting go...

You can mount the lower tabs to the bottom links to them, just not the yolk.

Great input, Todd, its literally as simple as adding one piece of bent steel to the side of the bracket for the belt receiver. You drill and tap a hole to accept the bolt and viola!

I will see if I can find pics of how Corbeau did it if you would like.

nah... f'this... sick of everyone killing ideas around here with their opinions on prices. Looks like a great product and I believe fair priced. (thats a heavy duty looking sucker) Most don't take into concideration of what else is needed to put these damn things in. My base kit was 50, the adapter to my rails was 35. IF I had to get rails that would have been another $50+. So all that said I could have spent more. And I am NOT happy with the set up. What PRO (PMO) has is exactly what I need. Except for the seatbelt piece missing.

While I didn't notice the missing tab for the seat belt. Doesn't mean you should kill the idea! Those look like some great work none the less. Personally pre-drilling holes in the sliders would be a bad idea. More holes = less strength. Personally that is one area I do not want less strength. Even know the stock seats are designed to have the rear break away in a rear ending accident. I would rather have myself supported and safe.

I can snap a pic of my placement of my bracket when I pop my seats out. I have to grind off the middle adapter just to attempt to make it look close to what you have and not hit my head on the roof anymore.

I see a lot of people on here bitching that nobody offers a good seat bracket... This is good for EVERY TYPE OF RACING SEAT; Not only Corbeau (Try using a Sparco seat on a Corbeau bracket without some type of major modification...)

Well I don't feel to bad now after seeing the brand "X" bracket! Look's a little weak to me.

I made ours to be a really low profile. They are made from 1 1/2"x 1/2" c-channel so much much stronger IMO.

i doubt i'll ever have racing seats but i'd buy the PMO one over any others in a heartbeat. it looks so much more sturdy, seems like it would fit more seats with less mods, and the price is more than fair. Plus you are supporting a great probe vendor which only helps our cause.

The base is nearly identical, however the PRO brackets seem to have a better slider mechanism - the one thing I dislike about the Corbeau brackets.

My Corbeau sliders look nothing like that, they don't sit up at all. With the Forzas mounted, I have MAYBE 1.5" between the seat bottom and the carpet. If you'd like I can take some pictures of my brackets and PM them to you.

I honestly wasn't trying to knock your product, I was just offering a couple suggestions, that wouldn't affect production costs, and would make these better. Not all criticism is bad.

Danmit Man is that what your talking about as the lap belt mount? That doesn't look like it would hold all 190lbs of me. I will take your advise and add the mount. Of course it will be PRO tough though.

It's considerably more stout than the factory mount on that thin stamped steel - and that survived NHTSA

you would be surprised at how strong they are. my seats are konig brand and my sliders and brackets come with the lap belt hook and it is really nice and quite sturdy. i paid 120 for the sliders and 120 for the brackets so todd has a fair price.
