Something I used to use (for autocross) until I put the Schroth 5-point 
was this. Put a twist in the lap belt near the buckle before latching 
it, repeat until you get the right tension. I also whilpped up a "Dick 
(Turner)" strap.
It is simply a wide nylon strap with velcro on the ends. You wrap it 
around your torso and the back of the seat. Attach it as tightly as you 
can bear (and still breathe)!
