    Make your own "cg-lock" for >6 bucks...

    Home Depot RULES...

    You will need

    2 2 and 1/2 inch pipe clamps

    2 5/16th carriage bolts

    2 5/16th wing nuts

    after assembling one carraige nut with the clamp parts on it you can go to you car and slide it on to the seat belt above the buckle on the shoulder part, put the other carriage bolt and wing nut together tighten it down till it slides slightly on the belt. buckle up pull tight on the belt tighten the wing nuts down. you should be good to go.

    If you can't pull the belt that tight by hand, move your seat back one notch tighten then move the seat back forward.

    have fun be safe.

    The "cg-lock" is a seat belt accessory that tightens the lap belt so that you don't move around while cornering. It keeps your butt planted so that you can concentrate on driving and not trying to brace yourself. what I made is a substitute for that product that costs 40 dollars or so.

    Tested it and it works great.

    Hmmm, I was taught an "old auto-crosser's trick" to accomplish this same goal. It's possible that I'm the last guy to hear about this, but it still ranks among the niftiest things I've learned lately, so here it is:

    1. Fasten seat belt normally.
    2. Snug the lap strap nice & tight.
    3. Pinch the belt together just over the buckle so it won't slide.
    4. Unbuckle seat belt.
    5. Give buckle a full twist.
    6. Re-buckle.

    The twist keeps the strap from sliding through the buckle, so no more slack can get through to the lap strap. I'm still amazed at how well this works.

    To the OP, your rig is simple, cheap, and a good conversation piece...nicely done.

    Nice. I was going to buy a CG lock, maybe Ill do this instead.

    Occasionally when I hit a bump I lift completely off this seat and hit my head on the roof. Annoying and a bit dangerous.

    I was going to purchase one, the manufactured cg-lock. Went around to some of the "high performance" shops around town and not a single preson at any of the shops knew what I was talking about??? I thought that it was a rather well known product. Well needless to say I wont be shopping for parts with any of the shops in the Killeen TX area any time soon.

    I hate living where every one wants to be fast and furious, sorry getting off topic.

    By the way it holds REALLY tight, just gotta get the wing nuts, I'm going to get some of that liquid rubber stuff to coat the clamp parts make them more sticky.

    I didn't measure the belt before hand but I think a 2 inch wide piece will work really good too.
