CG Lock

5 posts in this topic

Don't suppose any of you have ever tried this product?

 

Most reviews seem positive but it hasn't gained a particularly large following.

Seems like it could be a good way to remove lower body movement at a fraction of the cost of a proper seat and harness for track days.

 

Can't see much of a downside to it other than in a crash if you have a seatbelt with the explosive tightener it won't be able to pull through the buckle once tight and could potentially cause some serious abdominal damage.

Nope

But it’s sold at Walmart so there must be a tonne out there. There is the baby seat one to though I guess which maybe the more popular. 

 

 Canada seems to have it approved by their rallisport for use in all club events as compliant with some sections of their standards. 

 

Says crash tested but could see any standards. 

 

Still $75 plus shipping it’s close to a secondhand harness and eye bolts. 

Just that it would be usable every day. 

 

Are there any subarus with explosive tensioners?

It looked like they had stopped making it for a few years as most places were always out of stock and had a new, worse design to replace it, but subispeed has just picked them up to start selling so they must be still making them

 

Yea mine has the tensioner. Doesn't look to have a heap of length it pulls but if already rather tight it may cause issues

Wonder how much force it can apply. The explosive speed may just pull through it.
