Part #711031 5-Point Latch & Link Style Harness
It was time to take the Nova to the dragstrip and we needed to meet the safety requirements and pass tech. We reached out to RaceQuip to see what they suggested for our application and they recommended their 5-Point Latch & Link Style Harness system. We picked the color yellow as it matched our paint color. We also installed a pair of Scat ProCar bucket seats.
RaceQuip harness systems are constructed using drop-forged steel hardware for ultimate strength and reduced weight. All hardware is cadmium plated for added protection. They feature 3" premium polyester webbing and all belts are box-x pattern sewn to ensure uniform stitch length and strength. Belts and hardware are routinely tested to verify compliance with SFI 16.1 standards.
This harness set features a latch & link system to retain the belts. The latch & link system is distinguished by a pivoting "hammer," called a Duckbill, which locks all of the belts into place by snapping down into a detent. Both shoulder belts and the sub belt are hooked over the link; the link is inserted into the latch; the Duckbill is then brought down into and over the link, securely holding all of the pieces in place.
The 711 Series Latch & Link Harness Systems come as a "pull down" design. RaceQuip also offers other series of Latch & Link with a "pull-up" design like their 809 Series. This means that the lap belts must be pulled down and away from the center latch mechanism to tighten. Belts are "double adjustable", lengths are easily adjusted on either end for ease of installation. Using the included three bar slide you can mount the belts by either wrapping them around a roll bar or by bolting them in place. Snap-in ends and eyebolts are sold separately if you want to install your belts in that manner.
