    Default Tri Pacer Rear Seat Harness Options

    Short Wing Friends, your help is needed!
    To better protect rear seated passengers, I would like to install H or Y type shoulder harnesses.
    On this and other forums, I could only find info on front seat installations.

    Any ideas, tips and suggestions are very much appreciated.

    I just purchased new shoulder harnesses for the FRONT seats at Oshkosh this year (sorry to just add to the pile of front seat applications). I actually just received them yesterday and I'm headed out to the airport today to see what it'll take to install. See the installation info below as I believe this can apply to both front and back seats. Also read the STC (I'd link to it, but my membership renewal seems to be messed up right now and I can't access it).

    What I bought:



    How they install:

    • Metal tube clamp goes around a structural tube above the front seat-back (gotta cut a slit through headliner)
    • Metal piece gets sandwiched between ears of tube clamp
    • Shoulder harness feeds through the sandwiched metal piece


    Looks pretty simple, but I'll find out later today. I think the hard part will be not completely destroying my headliner trying to install lol. The point is that all you need is structural tubing to attach to, and I believe there's a structural crossbar above the rear seat-backs. Installation would be the same as the front.

    Keep in mind that these Wag Aero shoulder harnesses come with lap belts (it's a combo package).



    Here's an old archive thread with some good info about installing the Wag Aero or other harnesses for the rear seats. Some good info, specifically from user JohnW (however I didn't read the whole thread, it's long, so there might be even better stuff further down).
