    Seatbelts - Hooker Quickies

    Now that I have your attention . . . I purchased Hooker Quickies
    <http://www.hookerharness.com/> for my older Musketeer that does not
    have shoulder belts. As long as you don't have passengers in the rear
    seat (the Quickies attach to the rear seat belt) this a low cost ($35?)
    option for shoulder restraint, keeping you out of the panel and away
    from the headliner.



    Each harness comes in a "Y" configuration. The leg of the "Y" has a
    loop, which the rear seat belt goes through before buckling the rear
    seatbelt. The upper two parts of the "Y" both have loops on the ends.
    The two parts go over the back of the front seat and each side of the
    front lap belt feeds through the loops.



    The harness is very adjustable whether you want to snug the shoulders
    down or loosen them. With the right shoulder full snug I could reach all
    my panel instruments but I couldn't reach the flap handle (when flaps
    up) or the fuel selector on the floor. For takeoff and landing I have
    the left strap fully snug and have the right strap loose enough that I
    can reach the flaps. For cruise flight I loosen both straps. For
    emergency landing, the last thing I'll do (right after saying another
    prayer!) is tighten both straps as snug as possible.

    I've been thinking about those for our girl, but hadn't seen anyone on here try them. May give them a try now until there's an STC for harnesses. We almost never fly with more than my wife and I.

    I had those Hooker Quickies in my plane when I bought it, and found them to be very uncomfortable and restrictive, and wound up giving them away. I figured that without them, in the event of a crash, I would die from massive head trauma (i.e. crushed skull) versus dying from a broken neck if I wore them. Unless someone comes up with an inertia reel system, I'll do without.

    I have a set of them, and quite like them. They are secure, and I can reach my panel and flap handle. I would rather have my head out of the panel than a compression injury. It is a matter of opinion and trade off.

    Cheers
