Default Bolt-in Harness ?'s

I just installed some Sparco Sprints and I'm about to install my 6pt G-Force harnesses, though I just realized I got bolt-in style shoulder harnesses rather than wraparound. Is there any way to bolt them in behind the seats, or should I just return them and order some wraparound harnesses? I have a Boss Frog Clearview Maxx, which does not come with a harness bar, though they recommend wrapping harnesses around the vertical bar behind each seat.

wrapping them behind the vertical bar i guess could be done. But if im visualizing this correctly wouldn't they get pulled up tword the top of the roll bar when any pressure was pulling on them. I have seen something like this:

With an eye hook that generally mounts to the floor on the package shelf behind the roll bar, BUT i dont see the package shelf as being strong enough even with a big backing plate. You should look into getting a harness bar welded onto your roll bar and exchanging the harnesses in my opinion.

That's how they recommend doing it, and they say it is within the SCCA rule of being 20 degrees from the centerline of the seat.

I've got everything packaged up to return in exchange for some wrap around style harnesses.

ah i see what your saying, the picture clarifies it. I was thinking it would slide up because my roll bars diagonal connects to the harness bar on the right so if i were to do it that way it would slid up. Ide return it unless you have a track event you need to use them for right away.
