Schroth has two lines of harnesses. One are standard 2"/3" harnesses designed to be used with a harness bar and bolted to the chassis. The other line, the tuning line, are designed to be integrated with the OEM restraint system.

Make sure that you are taking those quotes and applying them to the right product.
It clearly states for all applications in parentheses. And I wasn't talking about the Pro. Just the regular quick fit.

I installed the harness last year but didn't get out, so look forward to using it in April.

As far as the dangers with the belt being routed downward, it has to do with how the force of an impact is distributed across your body and the harness. If routed incorrectly or at an unapproved angle, the shoulder belts will basically compress, and break, your spine.

That's how it was explained to me anyway.
