preventing Lime Rock-like Incidents

What is a better/safer alternative to the horizontal bar? 

The Safety Devices cage (Thanks again Igor!) installed in the 84 4KQ RR car had none and I added one to anchor the shoulder harnesses. This seemed to be SOP based on looking at many other race cars. Now I am seriously thinking about alternatives! I had planned to anchor the harnesses to the rear deck, but they were no where near long enough to reach..... hence the added horizontal bar......
