Greetings all,

I posted this entreaty up in Track and Technique seeing as how it is related to safety equipment.

I am installing a pair of Schroth Hyrbrid II six-point harnesses and I'm researching different lap belt mounting options. One option that I am considering is to use M10 eyebolts through the rear seat mount holes and clip the lap belts in there.

HMS Motorsport carries M10 eyebolts, but only in 25mm lengths and that doesn't appear to be long enough to fit through the chassis cross-member and into the backing plates. So...

Can anyone point me towards a source for Grade 8, or better, M10 eyebolts?

THANKS!

FYI, Grade 8 is an SAE grading, and is not used in the metric system. In the metric system of bolts, grade 10.9 is about the same strength as grade 8, and grade 12.9 is even stronger. Of course, if you can use 3/8" hardware instead, grade 8 is available.
