Default Seat floor mount - sub strap mount?

I'm mounting my seat with side mounts to the floor to get the clearance I need. Since it's so low there is no room under the seat for eye bolts for the sub straps. What alternatives are people using? I thought about moving them back behind the seat but that angle would probably make the sub seat hole a guide which isn't allows by nasa.

Single strap? I always wondered about this, with such a small car, lots of people bolt directly to the floor. Can an eye bolt fit through the hole? So the top of the eye bolt is actually coming through the hole?

I have a 6 pt. I guess something like this may work.

Any way to weld a round tube to the front of your seat mounts and wrap the sub belt around the tube?

Yep. Just get a mount that doesn't use an eyebolt + clip.

Exactly. Mine is a 5 point, but I used a mount like this with a bolt through the floor a couple inches behind the seat hole and a big thick fender washer to reinforce it (a welded plate would be even better)
