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.
