Universal 5-Point Quick Release Racing Harness by Cipher Auto®, 3" Heavy Duty Nylon Webbing Straps. A 5-point harness is required by most sanctioning bodies for organized racing. The 5th strap, the one in the middle, is designed to prevent the lap belt from riding up over your pelvis in a crash. In extreme cases, drivers have been known to “submarine” completely out from under the belts and take flight. These 5-point harnesses will keep you securely in the seat while racing, and as safe as possible in the case of an “excursion” or rollover.

Racing harnesses serve two purposes: most of the time, they work in concert with a proper racing seat to restrain the driver so they don’t move unnecessarily around in the seat. That improves their ability to drive at speed. But in the unlikely event of a crash, it keeps them safely inside the roll cage. Old-fashioned harnesses were basically parachute harnesses, with unwieldy buckles that took three or four hands to buckle. These high-tech belts use a central lock that allows you to plug the shoulder, lap and submarine belts into the buckle individually, and release them all at once. It’s a great timesaver in the pits when you’re trying to belt up while wearing a driving suit, helmet and gloves.94.76
