Schroth harness installation question

You can actually avoid having to take out the front seat. You can simply
remove the part of the Schroth harness that would bolt in to the inner side
of the seat (just unthread it from the buckle). Then, find yourself a spare
center rear seat belt. Pull the belt all the way out of the reel and cut it
off. Then you can thread this into the harness and simply buckle it in just
like you do your normal seat belt. This what I did on my Schroth harness and
it works great. And I have the harness that will unbuckle from the rear
mounting straps so I just tuck the fixed part of that under the seat when
not in use. So all I have to mess with is one bolt for install and removal.
