Simple installation for anyone.
Hey, everybody. I'm Justin with AmericanMuscle.com, and this is my detailed review of the Schroth QuickFit Pro Harness, available in your choice of either black or red, fitting all 2005 and newer Mustangs. You should be checking out the Schroth QuickFit Pro Harness if you're serious about the safety in your daily driven or weekend warrior Mustang and subject it to a good amount of track duty. When I say "track duty" in this case, guys, I'm more talking about the road course stuff or SCCA-type racing, as opposed to all out drag racing. Now, those drag racers might want to entertain the idea of a five or six-point harness, depending on the rules in your respective class. Taking safety even further here, guys, the Schroth QuickFit Pro is actually the first four-point harness of its kind that can be used with a HANS device along with the factory seats. If you aren't aware, HANS stands for head and neck support device, and it's something used in a wide variety of motor sports just to prevent any head or neck injuries in the event of a crash. So again, if you really push the car hard on the track, this is a great option for you guys if you want to make safety a top priority. Now, Schroth has been one of the leaders in aftermarket restraints and harnesses ever since the early '90s. And besides the work they do in the automotive field, also supply stuff for airplanes and helicopters, along with ballistics, seating, and restraints for the military. So essentially, these guys know what they're doing and they're trusted by a lot of people. All right, guys. So the QuickFit Pro is the next generation of Schroth's very popular QuickFit series. This design is very popular, because it's going to integrate into your existing Mustang safety features without the need for anything else. So you don't need an additional harness bar. You don't need a roll cage to use this thing. Basically, it just plugs in or utilizes the factory mounting points of your Mustang seat belt. And again, I think that's what's going to make this very popular to a lot of you guys at home. Here's my one and only nitpick with this mounting system. Now, ideally, you'd like to have the shoulder harness between 0 and 20 degrees downward of the shoulder on a horizontal plane. Usually, using a harness bar, or a lateral bar of a roll cage would be the best way to help you achieve this. Using Schroth's method for the shoulder harness, you're actually approaching the angle of 45 degrees, which is acceptable but not necessarily ideal in my eyes. Again, you never really just want to mount the shoulder harness directly behind the seat to the floor, because that can cause an injury in the event of a crash. Shoulder mounting aside, I really do enjoy how the Schroth integrates into the factory seat belt and restraint system, and here's why. For starters, it's going to silence that seat belt warning chime that you might otherwise hear if you left the seat belt unplugged, for instance, or maybe if you went with a different harness option instead. The Schroth is also going to utilize the factory pre-tensioner system for the lap belt portion, which is pretty cool. Because in the factory system, there's actually a little pyrotechnic device that will ignite in the event of an accident, and that's what tightens up your lap belt in a hurry. The fact that the Schroth is going to reuse that is actually very cool. Sticking with the lap belt portion, guys, the Schroth harness actually incorporates what they call ASM Technology, or Anti-Submarining Technology. That's basically going to help prevent you from sliding or submarining underneath the lap belt portion here in the event of a collision. Now, this might be a concern for some of you guys out there going with a four-point over a five or six-point harness that typically has a belt or belts that come up between the legs, preventing the submarining motion from even occurring. All right, guys. Let's get into the harness here, because there are a few things to talk about. First and foremost, Schroth does offer the QuickFit Pro in both red or black. You can see we have the red here on the table. It does feature two-inch wide polyester webbing, and that's going to be a little bit better than the nylon material when it comes to converting the energy of a crash, or soaking up the energy itself. The Schroth also features a monofilament that's woven laterally into the harness itself, and they say that's going to help better spread the load of the impact over the entire harness. At the mid-$300 price point, the Schroth QuickFit Pro is definitely going to be one of your more premium harness options available here at AmericanMuscle.com. It's going to cost you about $100 more than the standard QuickFit. But keep in mind, guys, this is the only four-point option currently available that can be used with that HANS device, along with your factory seating, and you're also getting the convenient mounting locations. As I just mentioned, guys, one of the benefits going with the Schroth QuickFit Pro here is that you don't need any extras when getting it installed into your Mustang. No harness bar, no roll cage, no race seats, no modification, and best of all no drilling. Instead, this thing does mount fully into your ride using the existing factory seat belt locations. You will need some basic hand tools to remove some of the factory seat belt stuff, replace it with the Schroth stuff here. But overall, a very simple install, one out of three wrenches on my Overall Difficulty Meter. We call it an hour on the site, but I wouldn't be surprised if it takes you less than that. I feel like the Schroth QuickFit Pro will be a solid option for many Mustang owners out there for the simple reasons that it's easy to install, you don't need anything extra to get it installed, and best of all it's going to provide some extra safety in your street driven or track Mustang, more so if you take advantage of the HANS support. Now, it's tough to put a price on safety. Some people might have a slight issue with the $300 to $400 price tag. But overall, you're getting a solid, well-engineered product that's going to offer you some things other options will not. So be sure to check out a Schroth option for your ride, right here at AmericanMuscle.com.

Great product - instructions confusing
Hi I bought sets of Quik Fit for myself and my son. It is a great product however the instructions are confusing and not well thought out. I needed to watch a video from one of your vendors to fully understand what needs to be done to install. Also for 2017 model mustangs and after the base of the front seat belt was revised and that is not addressed by Schroth. The video provided a work aroundHelpful (1)

Overall not bad
The installation went smooth over all by using a combination of the instructions and YouTube. American Muscle should be changing the description but if they don't, I will tell you this, they are NOT and direct fit for 2018 Mustangs. The rear male clip will NOT insert into your stock seatbelt receptacles. Schroth has no fix as this time. My solution was to replace the stock receptacles with 15'-17' receptacles which do work with the harness and your 2018' rear seat belts. This "fix" was approved "verbally" by Schroth. This is a great set up for those of us who don't want to delete our rear seats and install a roll bar but want a little more protection than the OEM seat belts provide. Both Schroth and American Muscle were very helpful with assisting me through out this process.Helpful (7)

I expected more...
...for the price. 1) Came with cheesy photocopied instructions for a different set of harnesses. 2) You have to bend/hammer a key connection tab to 'make it fit' in the stock rear mounting point. Bending steel weakens the metal. Do you want weakened connection points?Helpful (5)

One Cut and Two Bends Necessary Good Fit for 15-17
I ordered this for track day and autocross use. Installation is a little more involved than portrayed, but shouldn't take more than a few hours. INSTALLATION: There are no instructions on how to remove the rear trim panel or seat bottom, or where trimming is necessary, but you need to do both. Remove the rear seat bottom first by sliding your fingers under the front edge of the seat, in the middle of both driver and passenger seat cushions. There is a small plastic clip that you push rearward, then pull the whole seat upward and out of the car. Remove the kickplate trim at the bottom of the door by just pulling upwards and inwards, front of vehicle to back. You will need to remove the side trim that is next to the rear passenger seat as well. This is a little more difficult. Pull the trim upwards behind the kickplate, inwards along the middle, and away from the trunk at the back. Then unclip the port that the rear shoulder belt passes through so you can remove the panel from the car completely. You will need to cut the bottom of the panel where it covers the seatbelt pretensioner. Start at the front of the crease where it blends to the rest of the panel, and continue rearward along the crease about 3in. You can then trim downwards back out of the panel and blend it as you see fit. Sandpaper works well to clean up the cut after it is cut with a dremel. This is the only cutting you need to do, and isn't easily noticeable when re-installed. Bend the front seatbelt mounting tab outboard about 30 degrees at a 90 degree crease, close to the top. Bend the rear seatbelt mounting tab about 45 degrees upward, at a 45 degree crease, also near the top of the tab. This is easily done in a vice. Sandwich these under the stock belt mounting tabs, and reinstall the panels and seat and your are done. FIT AND FUNCTION: These are comfortable and easy to adjust. Make sure you read the instructions to pull the lap belt as tight as possible before tightening the shoulder belts. If you are tall and have the seat set as low as possible, have a waist of 30in or below, you may find the tightest position to be barely tight enough. But it does work. The harness does a good job of holding your body stationary.Helpful (5)

What's great about this harness is that you can still use the OEM belt for off-track driving. On the track it provides fantastic support even though my seat is a regular bucket seat. I highly recommend it. One note, I had to notch out some of the plastic around the anchor bolt for the installation. therefore, contrary to instructions, installation does require some modification.Helpful (4)

Love the Schroth QuickFit Pro Harness...
These really hold me in the seat while driving aggressively on the track. No longer have to hold on the the wheel just to stay in the car. Very easy to move out of the way to use the factory 3 point for street use. Be sure to get a head and neck restraint system to use with them. If you have power seats, put them in performance driving position, then slide back an inch or so, cinch down the lap belts as tight as you can, then the shoulders. Push yourself back in the cushion of the seat and rotate side to side to tighten. Now move the seat back forward. Enjoy the ride.Helpful (4)

If you track your car and aren't prepared to put a bar in it, these are perfect. Great quality, design, and function. Also one of the best mods an intermediate driver can make. You WILL go faster.Helpful (5)

WELL-LOOK harness, only thing not that perfect is that it is not very easy to install.Helpful (4)
After install, can I still use the factory rear and front seatbelts without reinstalling them? In other words, due both options remain after installation?
After installing the Schroth QuickFit Pro Harness's you will still have your factory seat belts installed unless you choose to remove them.
Will these work with Recaro's?
These will work with Recaro seats as the Recaros have inserts in the seats to feed the belt through the head and neck position.
Will this fit a 2018 GT ?
This is not compatible with 2018 GT models.
I can't see any actual difference between the QuickFit Pro and the normal QuickFit except the belt buckle design. Are there any other differences?
The difference between this seatbelt harness and the Quickfit is that this one is HANS compatible which is more ideal for the track in case of a crash, the quickfitbelt wouldn't be compatible with the HANS device.
You mention a HANS device but if this was being used on the street without one-would it allow enough travel of the passenger for the airbag to prevent an internal decapitation? Do you have crash test demonstrations to show what would happen in the event of a collision with this harness in a street car? Thank you
The Quickfit Pro will have a better clip setup, as well as being compatible with Hans devices and has the ability to add an additional sub belt.
As this does not have the backseat we would be unable to confirm fitment at this time.
Yes, these will work with the stock seats in the 05-18 Mustangs.
The Schroth QuickFit Pro Harness require the use of the factory seats and safety restraint system. They cannot be tied to a roll cage.
A harness bar is needed for install and may require modifications to work. Here are 2 options we have. http://www.americanmuscle.com/corbeau-harness-bar-0512.html http://www.americanmuscle.com/braum-racing-harness-bar-0514.html
You will be able to pull the lap belt snug over your hips as this seat belt incorporates what is called Anti-Submarining (ASM) Technology. This is going to help prevent you from sliding or "submarining underneath the lap belt in the event of a crash.
It appears to anchor to an area beside the backseats as well as clipping into the rear seatbelt.
